Abhijeet Sawant reacts over Tuesday’s late-night brawl

Abhijeet Sawant’s run-in with the law on Tuesday night on an empty stretch of road in Juhu has left the singer shaken but certainly not scared.

Speaking on Wednesday afternoon about the series of incidents leading to the ugly spat with a mob on the road, the soft-spoken Sawant said he felt he was being targeted only because he was a known face.

Says the singer, “On Tuesday night I attended a singers’ association’s meeting with my friends and colleagues. Among them was Prajakta Shukre. After the meeting we all left. Prajakta was in her Honda City. On the way she banged her car into a scooter which had two people on it. She called me in panic. And I immediately rushed to the spot to help her, as any friend would.”

Abhijeet, who is happily married, is appalled to read Prajakta being referred to in the papers as his “girlfriend”.

Protests the singer and reality-show host, “She is like my sister. Hum donon mein bhai-behen ka rishta hai. So I rushed to her rescue. When I got there I saw the situation was very bad. The mobs were getting very edgy and aggressive. When I tried to intervene they got rough with me and held my collar.”

Abhijeet denies being drunk or getting abusive with the public on the road. “Throughout I kept my cool and when the cops arrived we went to the police station.”

The injuries to the two boys on the scooter, says Abhijeet, are minor.

“There have been reports that we were drunk. That isn’t true at all. Prajakta got into a bit of trouble. And I helped her out. I don’t think that’s wrong.”
