Ac­tor Ar­jun Ram­pal (above) re­cently made head­lines with re­ports that he had lost his cool when some young fans chased his car from a restau­rant to his house, and hounded him for self­ies. Clear­ing the air, the 44-year-old de­nies the in­ci­dent and says he would never treat his fans that way. “I don’t un­der­stand where these peo­ple cook up sto­ries from. Who were these peo­ple I mis­be­haved with? Why would I fight with some­one who is ask­ing me for a selfie? I have al­ways re­spected my fans and it’s be­cause of their love that I am here,” he said.

The ac­tor, who was in Delhi to walk for de­signer Rohit Bal at the In­dia cou­ture Week 2017, said that he has never been snob­bish. He also added that if fans come to celebri­ties for an au­to­graph or selfie, the celeb should al­ways oblige.

With re­gard to his films, Ar­jun’s fans will def­i­nitely see a new side to him in his next. The ac­tor plays the role of a gang­ster-turned­politi­cian Ar­jun Gawli, in the film Daddy. Ar­jun said that he had to re­hearse a lot to learn the di­alect and put in a lot of ef­fort to per­fect the por­trayal. “This char­ac­ter is the most chal­leng­ing role in my ca­reer and my fans are go­ing to see a dif­fer­ent side of me,” he said.
