No police complaint has been filed about the incident. Ram Charan is Union Tourism Minister and superstar Chiranjeevi's son.

The actor reportedly argued with the two men in the car and then allegedly parked his car in front theirs and his men took over.
In the photographs, Ram Charan's aides are seen clearly manhandling the two men, pulling at the clothes of one, and kicking the other. The actor, who was driving sat in his car through the incident.
The photographs were clicked on a camera phone by a passer-by, who only shared them on Monday.
Ram Charan has worked in Telugu films such as Chirutha, Magadheera and Naayak. He will soon make his Bollywood debut with a remake of the 1970s cult fim, Zanjeer.
