A friend of the actor says, “We were having fun at this club and Manish wanted to dance to a particular song. So he approached the DJ and requested him to play this song. But soon after, the club’s owner, Lakhan Jethani, came forward and started abusing Manish. We were shocked to see the owner behave like this. The matter soon got out of control and he punched Manish on his face. The bouncers stopped us from helping out Manish, instead of stopping Lakhan.”

Turns out that as a result of this scuffle, the actor was hurt in the eye. “His eye had swollen up; he had to seek medical help. We don’t know what instigated the club owner. So we went to the Hill Road police station to register a complaint against him. However, t when Lakhan was called at the police station, he not only gave a written apology to Manish, but was also ready to pay him for the losses he had incurred on account of missing out on shows due to the injury.”

Manish is said to be on medication and he apparently cannot shoot for the next ten days. When contacted, Manish confirmed the story but did not reveal details. “As
far as I am concerned, this matter is a closed chapter,” he said. Lakhan remained unavailable for comment.
