After the beating, Teo said he wanted to speak to Najib on behalf of the artists at the back that wanted their aspirations to be heard.

“I was not given a chance to speak to the PM. I have no idea it was a gimmick. I don’t know him personally,” he told reporters when met after the event.

The TN50 event last night was supposed to be a round table discussion between Najib and the nation’s leading entertainers to find out their aspirations for the entertainment industry by 2050.

Sources said more such scuffles or prevention from people to speak in the near future, as Najib has given the impression that he should not be ‘disturbed’ at such events.

In the recent past, reporters were slapped, pushed and threatened by body guards and police officers escorting Najib at events.

The reporters wanted to query the PM directly on the saga!

Speaking to reporters after the event, the actor said the punch on David Teo was staged and was part of the nights event, which the producer denied.Follow us on Social Media
