According to NDTV, the actor refused to give his side of what happened during the reported fracas, saying he did not want to give "two versions" of the incident.
"My children think of her as Farah aunty and it has been difficult for them to understand this whole issue. I do not want to give two versions of the incident," he said.
"This is an entirely personal issue. My children will get confused if they hear one thing from me inside the house and another thing in public. That is why I don't comment on my personal life.
"It is very embarrassing for me to talk about this incident in front of my children. My son is 14 and girl is 11-and-a-half years. It is difficult to explain it in the family."
