Elvish Reacts To The Incident
Soon after the video went viral, Elvish defended himself and stated that this is how he is. He added that he slapped the man only after he abused him.
"Matter ye hai, naa mujhe shauk hai ladai karne ka, naa mere ko haath uthane ka shauk hai. Main apne kaam se kaam rakhta hu. Main chalta hu normal. Aur jo photo khichwane ko kehta hai, hum kichwate hai aaram se photo. Par, jo koi piche se comment pass karta hai, usko nahi bakshte," he said in a video.
He added, "There were police and commandos with us. It is not that we’ve done anything wrong. This was personal. He took a personal dig at me, I personally went and slapped him. I don’t have any regrets. Aisa hi hu main."
Netizens Slam Elvish
Even after Elvish shared his side of the story and revealed why he slapped the unidentified man, netizens slammed him and said what he did was wrong.
A user commented, "People should stop idolising and justifying such chapris then only will they get a much needed reality check." Another wrote, "He's a misogynist goon. It's proved from his videos. So no surprises there."
Several reports claimed that Elvish slapped the man after he asked for a selfie. However, Elvish clarified in his video that the man abused him and his parents.
