Ola-cab driver asked ‘Ishqbaaz’ actor Nakuul Mehta to get down from the car!

'Ishqbaaz' actor Nakuul Mehta has met rude and abusive cabbie who asked the actor to get off from the car with all his luggage.

Nakuul Mehta has been having a string of bad luck in the past few weeks. While the actor is still waiting to get his money back after his bank account was hacked a fortnight ago, he got into another uncomfortable incident.

Nakuul Mehta said, while he was on his way to the set of his show in a cab when he met, according to him, a rather rude and abusive cabbie. The actor says, “I’ve never had any issues with app-based cab services, but this was horrifying. We were on Link Road at Andheri when my driver suddenly took a dangerous turn to scare another driver who overtook him. Later, he started abusing the other guy loudly. When I asked him to go easy on the filthy language and behaviour, he started arguing with me, insisting that this was the correct way to behave with such menace.”

Than the driver asked the actor to get off. Nakuul said, “I asked him to just drive to the destination and to my shock, he just stopped the car and asked me to leave. I agreed, but asked him to wait till I booked another cab as I had luggage with me. But he refused to understand and started driving again. I had to eventually stop him by holding on to the steering wheel of the car, and that’s when he charged at my hand. Luckily, the second cab I booked arrived soon and I went my way.”

The actor says that the app-based cab service has suspended the driver after he tweeted about the incident and made an official complaint with the cab service.
