The two photo journalists, one belonging to a newspaper and the other to local TV news channel, were trying to take shots of the shooting of the movie when Saif objected to this. The actor and four others have now been charged with assault. When Saif objected to two photojournalists getting too close with him, his security staff allegedly reacted and took away the cameras of both the men.
The journalists later lodged a complaint against Saif and his security guards on the charge of manhandling them. Railway Police registered a case against Saif under Sections 506 (threatening to kill) and 341 (assaulting), 536c (cause of damage) of the Indian Penal Code.
