"While I was having a private conversation with my friend. Mr. Manoj Manchu who is an actor from the Telugu film industry along with his 3 other friends interrupted my private conversation with my friend and started hitting me without even telling me what the issue was about. I was assaulted by these men for several minutes, I was hit on my face, my stomach and my lower body. Nobody else was even allowed to interfere and stop this fight as the men who were hitting me along with Mr. Manoj was threatening who ever tried to stop them from hitting me. As onlookers gathered by and they kept interfering is when this gang stopped to hit me further. I was severally threatened after getting hit by Mr. Manoj saying that my death was in his hands and that he would go to any extent to use his influence to have me killed," wrote Mahat in the FIR adding that he was worried about his security.
Wonder what went wrong. Speculation has it that the point of conflict could be actress Taapsee Pannu. Rumor has it that the curly haired actress is recently said to have broken off her relationship with Mahath. The actress is very close to the Manchu family as well.
