Director Shankar apologised to two photojournalists who were allegedly assaulted by the crew members of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer “2.0” in Chennai on Wednesday.

Director Shankar himself had visited Press Council office in Chennai to sought an apology. He said, “I am sorry. I shall ensure incidents like this don’t repeat. It has happened without my knowledge.”

Post the apology, the photojournalists have decided to withdraw the complaint that they had filed against the film’s production manager, a bouncer and the Director S Shankar’s nephew.
