Mumbai: A video had emerged on Friday and quickly spread through social media showing two photographers who were allegedly beaten up by bouncers after they clicked photographs of actress Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra on Thursday night. According to reports, the celebrity duo had happily posed for the two freelancers but after their departure restaurant’s bouncers got involved in a brawl and the matter started turning worse.
“We 're saddened and shocked by the incident that took place outside Bastian last night. We have celebrities and well-known guests visiting us frequently, and every experience has so far been smooth.” “During last nights incident, the people involved were personnel of Tough Security who are hired for Bastian via external vendors - as is the practice, the security agency assigns their personnel to us and other establishments based on who is available that day. All the Bastian staff, as well as the management, was inside in the restaurant on the second floor at the time of the incident - we were made aware of the same a while after it began. This was a highly unfortunate situation that escalated beyond anything we could have imagined.” “As soon as the Bastian team found out, we took remedial measures to get things under control. We are changing security agencies today as we do not want to take the risk of this happening again, as well as personally apologising to the media involved. We are also collecting all information so that we are able to offer to take care of any and all medical bills that may have resulted due to this incident” said the restaurant in an official statement.
