For the unversed, Akash Choudhary recently got attacked by a group of boys who were supposed to be his fans. In the video that has been doing rounds on the internet, Akash can be seen looking dapper in a black leather jacket, which he teamed with a white-hued T-shirt and blue baggy jeans. However, as the video started, the group of boys can be seen posing for a selfie with the actor. Later, the actor said that he was done posing. And soon after, a boy from the group aimed a plastic bottle at him. Akash, who was surprised by the same, can be heard saying:
"Kya kar raha ha bhai?"

For the unversed, Akash Choudhary has been speculated to be dating his MTV Splitsvilla 10 co-contestant, Nibeditaa Pal, for a long time. However, neither of them accepted the same. It was Akash who, a few days ago, dismissed such rumours and said that Nibeditaa and he are just good friends.
Earlier, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Akash Choudhary opened up about his professional life. The actor said that he rejected so many shows, which he didn't want to do as he never wants to compromise on his values. Elaborating more on the same, Akash shared:
"I've rejected shows where I was asked to do something that I didn’t want to. Sometimes, I do feel that I’d have been at a much bigger position in life had I compromised on my values. But, I’m glad that I stuck to what I believe in. I’m doing well in my life. You can get late to your success party, but you will reach there if you are in a good position.”
