Akshay termed the incident unfortunate. The 49-year-old star said that he warned his bodyguard to make sure such things are avoided in future.
“What happened that day was unfortunate and uncalled for. I was at the airport, and I heard a commotion which made me turn around, I didn’t notice anything wrong, so I walked on. It was later brought to my notice that my bodyguard had punched a fan. I have reprimanded him and given him a strict warning for the same. My sincere apology to the fan who was hurt. I hold my fans in the highest regard and such incidents are always upsetting. I will ensure such a scenario is avoided in the future”, Akshay wrote on Twitter.
