Mumbai: Seems like actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is too ‘image-conscious’ to keep mum about the FIR registered against him for allegedly assaulting a woman over a parking dispute.
“I held this press conference so that no such negative image goes to the society,” he told the media here.
When asked about whether or not the ‘Badlapur’ actor will take any action against the complainant, he said, “I don’t want to take any action against her. I just want to get things clarified to the society. Why will I take any action? She did a mistake.”
Thinking the whole incident to be a planned one, the 41-year-old actor said he was the easiest target to get in news.
“I was the easiest target in the society and hence I was victimized…I am the easiest way for them to get in news,” he said.
The Versova Police Station had on January 17 registered an FIR against the actor after a 24-year-old woman residing in the same housing society, approached them alleging that he had pushed her and behaved inappropriately following a dispute over parking space.
The actor was charged under Section 354 of the IPC that deals with assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty.
