Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw was allegedly attacked by a group of people after he reportedly refused to take a selfie with them. The incident happened on Wednesday night inside the Sahara Star Hotel’s Mansion Club in Mumbai
According to the reports, Shaw was in his friend’s car when people started coming to him for selfies. He later got irritated when two people started asking for selfies a second time. Soon after, the hotel staff asked the two to leave the club. They became enraged and planned to take revenge.
As per the reports, the accused asked Shaw for a selfie, and the cricketer agreed. The accused then demanded another selfie after taking one but Prithvi declined. Later, they waited for Shaw and his friends to leave the club.
