'Sai baba sab dekh rahe hai' - Fans stunned as Prithvi Shaw along with his friend gets attacked in Mumbai

A group of eight people reportedly attacked Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw's friend's car after Shaw refused to take a selfie with two people. It is known that the Oshiwara police registered an FIR against the gang on Thursday for the incident which took place outside a five-star hotel in Mumbai.

According to reports, Shaw and his friends were out for dinner when the accused gang approached the player and forced him to take a selfie. The cricketer was once ready for a selfie but got disturbed when the same group asked for another. He refused to pose for a pic a second time and said that he had come to eat with his friends. Shah's friend is said to have complained about the gang's attempt to invade their privacy, after which the management asked them to leave the hotel, which may have angered the gang and smashed the car.

Prithvi Shah's selfie controversy

The Mumbai opener has been in the middle of a controversy on Valentine's Day, after a picture with his rumoured girlfriend Nidhhi Ravi Tapadiaa was posted on social media. However, Shaw later clarified that the image was fabricated and altered but the post had gone viral within no time.

"Someone editing my pics and showing stuff that I haven't put on my story or on my page. So ignore all the tags and msges thx," Shaw wrote on his Instagram story.

Prithvi Shaw has been out of international cricket for a long time but was recalled to the T20I squad for the 3-match series against New Zealand in January. However, Shaw did not get an opportunity in the playing XI. He is also not part of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy, despite his sensational form in the domestic circuit. The Mumbai captain recently broke Sunil Gavaskar's record for the highest individual score by a Mumbai batter in the Ranji Trophy (340) when he hit 379 against Assam in January.
