However, the actor, who was flanked by his lawyer, refused to make any statement to the media that had gathered outside his Mumbai residence.
He sat for a minute and then got up, citing diktat from his lawyer. "I have been told no to speak to the media," the 'Housefull 4' actor said.
"What was true yesterday, remains true even today. The truth won't change. ( Jo kal sach tha, wohh aaj sachh hai, sach nahi badlega)."
Earlier on Sunday night, his son, Malhar, had sent out a message that the press conference would not take place.
