He also alleged that checking the entire incident on CCTV camera would bring out the truth adding that he himself wasn't proud of what happened.
A complaint was filed against the actor by Iqbal Sharama, a NRI who alleged that he was hit by Saif Ali Khan, that led to a fractured nose.
The actor was dining with his girlfriend and Bollywood actress, Kareena Kapoor along with Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora and her husband when the brawl took place.
According to Iqbal Sharama's neighbour, the duo were friends and this was just a publicity stunt for his upcoming movie 'Agent Vinod'.
