The indecent personal remarks irked Fawad Chaudhary, when he enquired about the videos from Mubashir at a wedding reception, TV anchor smiled and refused to produce the videos. The matter escalated and Fawad Chaudhary slapped tv anchor in ceremony.
In his speech Fawad Chaudhary said, “And when we demanded to present the videos, he said there is no such video … these people do such things for ratings,”
Mubashir Lucman, later filed an FIR against Fawad Chaudhary for assaulting him physically.
