CHIKBALLAPUR: Kannada actor Duniya Vijay got into a heated argument with toll plaza workers on the outskirts of Bagepalli near here at around 1 am on Thursday.
According to sources, Vijay and his friends were heading towards Andhra Pradesh from Bengaluru.
Vijay’s friends got into an argument with the toll plaza workers when the latter asked for the toll fee.
The actor’s friends later claimed that the workers attempted to search their vehicle.
The toll workers, however, said they only wanted to read the number plate which was illegible as the headlights were too bright. They said the actor stepped out of his four-wheeler and got into a fight.
Vijay, on the other hand, had a different version of the story. “My friends, my eldest daughter Monika and I were travelling in a car that had Tamil Nadu registration number plate. When we reached Bagepalli toll plaza, we saw that one of the workers was drunk,” he said.
Vijay said this worker on noticing the Tamil Nadu registration started asking unnecessary questions. This is when Vijay’s friend got into an argument with the worker. “Suddenly a group of people surrounded our car. I then got down from the car and advised these boys to respect people irrespective of which state they are from,” said Vijay.
Policemen patrolling the area rushed to the spot. No case has been registered in this regard.
