Puneet Singh Ratn apparently thrashed his driver after being reprimanded for rash driving

He plays the role of a gangster in Ram Gopal Varma’s upcoming film, but it looks like Puneet Singh Ratn is taking his role a bit too seriously. The actor apparently beat up his driver Yunus Shamshuddin Shiekh after he allegedly asked his boss to drive slow.

Sources say Ratn along with an assistant director friend thrashed Yunus while driving through the lanes of Lokhandwala after he objected to the duo driving like maniacs. An onlooker says, “In between shots, Puneet took his car along with an assistant director and was driving quite rashly. So much so that the car’s ceiling apparently flew off. The driver got angry and reprimanded the actor and his friend. It didn’t go down well with the two after which they decided to take matters into their hands.”

While Yunus’ father confirmed the incident, we heard that the driver had to seek medical help at a hospital and was initially planning to approach the cops. However Ratn denied our story, “I was present in the car but I did not do anything. The fight started between the first AD and the driver. I don’t know why they are dragging my name into the matter.”
