A video clip of an unidentified man attempting to assault actor Vijay Sethupathi at the Bengaluru airport has gone viral on social media.
According to various sources, including IANS, the incident occurred at the Bengaluru airport in the early hours of Wednesday.
The footage of the incident has gone viral on social media, with many people criticising the attack and calling for harsh punishment.
Vijay Sethupathi, who was dressed in a black and white checked shirt, was walking with security personnel when a man clothed in what appeared to be a white T-shirt appeared out of nowhere and severely attacked the actor from behind.
A person standing behind the actor was seen attempting to stop the attacker, but the attacker kicked Vijay Sethupathi, causing mayhem in the airport.
The attacker was quickly taken from the scene by the gunned security professionals, who also assured that the actor had a safe departure.
Even though the incident was not serious, the unidentified man, who was inebriated, was being a nuisance. After a little spat between the two parties, the actor and his crew decided to depart.
However, the individual is thought to have pursued the actor and attempted to kick him.
