While hosting a reality show, Gauhar Khan was slapped by Mohammad Akil Malik for reportedly wearing skimpy clothes.
While investigating, Malik has alleged that he was paid to slap her and that she had promised to get him a role in a film.
“This is my one and only response to the most ridiculous claim made by an accused who attacked me, went to jail for it and came out only to prove even more what a threat he is to normal living in India for girls, and also the weak stature even the media gives to a girl who especially belongs to the film or TV world,” Gauahar said in a statement.
“What this man is claiming is a clear attempt to get away from the heinous crime he committed. It’s absolutely bogus and a very poorly staged and filmy story obviously recommended by people who believe that our law will let him get away with such baseless stories,” she added.
She claims she doesn’t even know the attacker and that this is the most ridiculous claim.
