"I was wiping my wound because it was bleeding a lot."
Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan made a startling revelation when he disclosed he got into a brawl in a nightclub where he was attacked twice.
Speaking to host and actress Neha Dhupia on her talk show, No Filter Neha, Saif opened up about the unfortunate incident.
Although his partying days are now behind him, Saif Ali Khan was once known to be a ‘party animal’ during his days in Delhi as a youngster.
The actor was attacked by a man with a wine glass. While he was trying to control the bleeding, he was struck once again.
Revealing what transpired that night, Saif Ali Khan said:
“So this is an unfortunate incident where a guy said, ’Please dance with my girlfriend’ and I was like ‘I don’t want to do that’.
“He said ‘You’ve got a million dollar face’, which I really loved so I think I started smiling. Even though it’s probably not true.
“Then he said, ‘I’m going to F it up for you’ and then he hit me with a whisky glass on my forehead. Then we got into a fight.”
Saif continued to mention that he could have almost been killed. He said:
“And then we ended up in the bathroom and I was wiping my wound because it was bleeding a lot.
“If you have never been hit in the face, or cut in the face, perhaps if you cut yourself shaving, guys, you will know that you bleed a lot because there are a lot of blood vessels in the face.
“So, there was a flood of blood, I thought I don’t know what’s happened so I was wiping it with water.”
“I looked at him and ‘I said look what you did’, as in let’s make up now. He attacked me with the soap dish. So, he was a lunatic and he might have killed me.”
Saif Ali Khan further added:
“I was also at fault a little bit. It’s not the hardest thing in the world to get into a fight. To get something broken on your head in a nightclub in Delhi, or outside Delhi or in Gurgaon, it’s a dangerous environment.
“I have prided myself on growing up there and I have avoided about 50 fights in those days. Maybe I have grown up or it doesn’t happen anymore or people have just grown up.
“There were slightly more violent times in those days, maybe because law and order wasn’t quite so efficient.
“You’d probably end up in jail now whereas in those days nothing would happen. And I talked myself out of about a 100 scenarios where people have said, big guys, what do you mean.
“And you’re like no buddy, it’s all cool, and it’s all okay.”
