The incident of young Malayalam actor Asif Ali beating people who had come to watch a shoot was a big controversy. However, Asif Ali thrashed the youth after some spectators at his colleague and friend actress Bhavana's shooting made obscene remarks. Now the old video of the actor's interview regarding this incident is going viral again on social media.
"My very close friend Bhavana was mistreated by a group of youths while acting with me. Seeing the incident, I went and dealt with them before counting one, two, and three.
They spoke in a way that a girl should not be spoken to. I told them once or twice. Don't do that. Not only did I want those kids, but so did everyone else who was watching the shooting. I told them twice, and they didn't listen. And I hit them. These are my few problems. I am very normal. I get angry and sad easily. They went out of my hands when they crossed a limit," said Asif Ali.
Meanwhile, Asif Ali was last seen in the film Kaapa. The film, directed by Shaji kailas, is running successfully in theatres. Prithviraj plays the lead role in the film.
