Actor Gauhar Khan was slapped by a member of the audience while she was shooting for a TV show at Mumbai's Film City. The accused, Mohammad Akil Malik, 24, was caught and later handed over to police. According to the cops, Malik had been attending a TV show, which Khan hosts, as a member of the audience for the past three days and had been observing Khan. Around 8 pm on Sunday, while the shoot was on, Malik suddenly got up and went on the stage. He tried to touch Khan who was taken aback and resisted. Malik then slapped her and asked her how she could wear skimpy outfits and dance to cheap songs being a Muslim. Police are also trying to find out if Malik was drunk.
