Much has been made of Sanju (Dutt) and me roughing up Shirish Kunder (he’s Farah Khan’s husband, if you didn’t know). Well, the entire tamasha happened at my friend Baba Dewan’s nightclub, Aurus, in Juhu. And, as usual, the media spun some sensational stories without (heh heh heh) any inside info. So let me put the truth on the table (or the bar counter, if that’s more appropriate) and share with you what transpired ahead of the party thrown by Maanyata and Sanju to celebrate the success of Agneepath.

Now to get to the heart of the matter...it all started on the morning of January 28, in the year of the Lord 2012, when a desperate Shirish rung me up. (Ahead of that call Farah had sent me this text message: “Shahrukh, please, please, help Shiri.”) Anyway, Shirish was pleading: “SRKbhai, you have to help me. You see, nobody takes me seriously. The media ignores me and even when I find a mention I’m passed off as Farah Khan’s husband. I can’t go on like this.”...
