Hyderabad, May 7: Security guards of Telugu and Bollywood actor Ram Charan Teja on Sunday bashed up two techies Phaneesh and Kalyan in a case of road rage at the GVK One circle in Hyderabad.
The brawl took place when a traffic cop signalled their vehicle to stop.
Phaneesh and Kalyan were driving towards Punjagutta in their white Alto car when they were stopped near the GVK One Traffic circle by the constable manning the junction.
The actor's Range Rover, that was just behind, wanted some way, may be to take a U-turn, but not getting enough space, the driver continuously honked his horn leading to an argument, said Sanjeev, a friend of the techies.
“Later, Ram Charan overtook the car and started abusing them. The argument went on for around 5 minutes during which his security guards, six of them, came in a Tata Safari and started beating up Kalyan and Phaneesh,” he added.
Sanjeev claimed there was no mistake on part of his friends. They first went to Punjagutta police station and then to Banjara Hills police station.
Ram Charan Teja is Telugu superstar and Union Minister Chiranjeevi's son. He is presently acting in the Hindi remake of Zanjeer.
Kalyan, who could not walk, refused to speak to media.
Phaneesh said, “It was a small incident. I got frustrated with what happened. I just want to end it here. No complaints!”
Asked why he had come to the police station, he said, “I just wanted to explain everything to the cops.”
Banjara Hills division ACP E Shankar Reddy said, “It is a non-cognisable case. If they give a complaint, we will file a case.”
Though there were no external injuries to the victims following the incident, Kalyan, who stepped out of the car bare foot, burned his feet and was unable to walk.
Phaneesh and Kalyan both work for Genpact and they had gone for shopping on Sunday afternoon.
