Garg, who has delivered some popular chartbusters in Bollywood with songs like 'Ya Ali' from Gangster (2006) and 'Jaane Kya Chahe Man Bawra' from Pyaar Ke Side Effects (2006), has lately been in the midst of a few controversies.

Garg was arrested under the 2013 case where he was alleged to have slapped a guy named Arup Borbora, who also happened to be the son of an advocate, for smoking in public.

Garg's advocate Junmoni Devi, explaining the situation, said to ANI, "This case was filed under three IPC sections - 323, 341 and 506. He has been proved not guilty under section 341; he has been sentenced to three months jail and penalty of 5,000 rupees under sections 323 and 506. We have accepted the judgment with respect and have planned to appeal before the higher court, which is the Sessions Judge Court."

Earlier this year, Garg also had to seek apology for engaging in a spat with an Indian Army Major at the New Delhi airport. The army official asked Garg to remove an army cap that he was wearing, as no civilian is allowed to wear a military outfit in public, that too bearing the army insignia on it. To his objection, Garg who had played a colonel in the Assamese film Mission China, curtly replied, "You are a major, but I am a colonel and you should salute me," reports The New Indian Express.
