Aditya Pancholi, notorious for his off-screen fights, has hit the headlines, once again for the wrong reasons. Aditya Pancholi reportedly slapped his co-actor Vije Bhatia on the sets of his upcoming film "Lakhon Hain Yahan Dilwale".

Although the reason behind the scuffle is not known, Bhatia confirmed the news.

"Aditya sir walked up to me and without saying much, slapped me in front of the entire unit. Not only that, he abused and insulted me for almost an hour. I was annoyed and helpless at the same time. I had no choice but to complete the scene I had with him," the Mid-Day quoted Vije Bhatia as saying.

The report also quoted a source from the sets of "Lakhon Hain Yahan Dilwale" as saying: "The shoot was about to begin when Aditya suddenly walked up to Vije and slapped him. Everything came to a standstill. Though he is known for his anger management issues, the incident took everyone by shock as there was no trigger. It was embarrassing for Vije as it happened in front of so many people. When things spiralled out of control, the director had to intervene."

Aditya Pancholi is known for creating such scenes. He reportedly had a scuffle on the sets of "Bajirao Mastani" as well during a shoot recently. Prior to that the veteran actor had a fight with a bouncer at a pub after his request to play Hindi songs was not met.

Apart from indulging in brawls, the senior Pancholi was in news a few months ago in connection with the case of actress Jiya Khan's mysterious death, in which his son and budding film star Sooraj Pancholi is the prime accused.
