In a disturbing turn of events, an alleged fan rivalry between supporters of actors Allu Arjun and Prabhas escalated into a physical altercation in Bengaluru. The incident, captured on video and widely circulated on social media, showcases a group of individuals purportedly assaulting a man and coercing him to chant 'Jai Allu Arjun'.

What happened to the Allu Arjun fans after the incident?

The viral video prompted swift action from concerned netizens who reported the incident to the Bengaluru Police. A user had tweeted, “@BlrCityPolice you should take action on this kind of people, just for online far wars this is not acceptable, kindly take proper action.” Authorities immediately replied and assured appropriate measures would be taken in response to the violence.

 

 

The incident unfolded near KR Puram in Bengaluru, leaving the victim visibly injured and bleeding from severe facial wounds. Although the exact trigger for the altercation remains unknown, unverified claims suggest the victim's loyalty to actor Prabhas may have sparked the confrontation.

Instances of such confrontations have been recurrent across Tamil and Telugu states, often characterised by heated exchanges and online spats, with minimal intervention from the celebrities involved. Notably, Allu Arjun, the focal point of this recent incident, has yet to issue a statement addressing the altercation.
