"He should slap those boys."
Bhagya Lakshmi actor Akash Choudhary was attacked by a crowd of people in Mumbai who seemed to be his fans.
A video of the incident has surfaced online.
The incident has left many questioning the security of celebrities as it all happened in front of the paparazzi.
The video begins with Akash obliging a group of boys with pictures.
As he told them he was done after posing with them, one of them was seen aiming a water bottle at him.
Taken aback, the actor asked him: “Kya kar raha hai bhai? (What are you trying to do?)”
As the actor was done taking pictures with the crowd, he started walking away.
This is when someone threw a plastic bottle towards him, which hit his back.
The actor looked baffled as he immediately turned around and questioned the behaviour of the people.
Reacting to the unusual event, someone wrote in the comments of the Instagram post:
“They are celebrities, not public property. How dare you do this? He should slap those boys and teach them a lesson for everyone.”
Another added: “Aise log pe strict action lena chaiye (One should take strict action against these people).”
A third user commented: “If they attack… they are not fans.”
Meanwhile, Bharti Singh also reacted to the incident and left a series of shocked face emojis.
Akash Choudhary is best known for his role in the TV show Bhagya Laxmi.
Apart from this, he has also appeared in Dating in the Dark and later participated in MTV Splitsvilla 10.
Akash recently made headlines when he escaped an accident during his road trip to Lonavala.
In July 2023, an incident left him shaking when a truck bumped into his car.
Recently, Akash, in an interview with Hindustan Times, opened up about his career.
He said: “I’ve rejected shows where I was asked to do something that I didn’t want to.
“Sometimes, I do feel that I’d have been at a much bigger position in life had I compromised on my values.
“But, I’m glad that I stuck to what I believe in. I’m doing well in my life.”
“You can get late to your success party, but you will reach there if you are in a good position.”
He was also in the news for dating rumours with fellow MTV Splitsvilla 10 contestant Nibeditaa Pal.
However, he dismissed it and called them “good friends”.
