It was reported in January that Siddiqui had allegedly slapped the complainant which led her to file an assault case. However, in a press conference held on Friday afternoon, the Gangs of Wasseypur actor completely denied the charge.

"I was an easy target. It was planned," said Siddiqui, at the press conference.

He further went on to say, "The incident was planned. Many people have seen the video, I was provoked. I don't know who this complainant Heena Sheikh is, I've never seen her."

Days after the FIR was registered, Siddiqui's wife filed a counter charge against the complainant.

She claimed that the 24-year-old girl and her family members forcibly entered their home in Versova and misbehaved with them, reports The Indian Express.

Siddiqui later went to the police station to record his statement, claiming he has done his job as a responsible citizen.
