Ayan Mukherji gets punched

Ayan Mukherji, the director of Wake Up Sid recently got punched on his nose by his own crew member of his upcoming movie Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, starring Deepika and Ranbir.

The makers of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani had hired Vishwas Batra to shoot the behind the scenes/making of the movie. But during the movie’s shoot at Manali some of Ayan’s Assistant were using Vishwas’s camera which interfered in Vishwas’s work and he was quite upset about it.

When Vishwas brought this to Ayan’s notice, he didn’t pay much attention,  But one night over the drinks, Vishwas again brought up the topic and Ayan apparently took his assistant’s side and Ayan’s such comment heated up the argument and angry Vishwas punched Ayan on his nose which leaved him bleeding.

When Karan Johar’s production house heard about the incident, they decided to fire the crew brought in to shoot the making and Vishwas got sacked and was sent back to Mumbai the very next day.
