WWE Hall of Fame giant The Great Khali in heated fan altercation at a toll

Former WWE star The Great Khali has been filmed getting into a fight with toll police in his native India.

The altercation between the seven foot one inch giant, who is a member of WWE's Hall of Fame, and Indian tool booth staff has gone viral.

The video shows a heated argument take place, with Khali in a car, who is being accused of slapping a member of the toll staff.

But Khali, whose real name is Dalip Singh Rana, has accused officials at the Ladhowal booth on the Panipat-Jalandhar highway of trying to blackmail him – he also denied slapping anyone.

The situation became so heated that he got out of the car and tried to move the barrier himself.

He told Indian Express: “They cannot force or blackmail me to get photos clicked.

“I wouldn’t have denied had they requested politely but they were rude.

“They said they won’t let me cross the toll till I won’t let them click photos with all of them.

“When I refused to pose with them, they started blackmailing and misbehaving.

“They also hurled abuses on me – I am a celebrity.

“Can a celebrity slap anyone? I cannot even think of it.

“It was only after they started misbehaving with me that I got out of the car and asked them to remove the barrier.”

He confirmed that he will be taking action against the staff members, and added that he shouldn't have to pay the toll charge having been abused by the officials.

An official complaint was submitted to the local police, where Khali accused the staff of having “misbehaved and abused him after he refused to get photos clicked with them” and also that “the staff instigated him to fight and made his videos viral”.

Ludhiana Police chief Kaustubh Sharma said: “The details of the incident will be verified for further action.”

Khali wrestled for WWE from 2006 to 2017 and faced some of the biggest names in the company.

He was ridiculed by fans for his lack of wrestling ability, and terrible move set, but won them over when he turned himself into a more comedic character and started dancing.

In 2015, he started his own wrestling school in Punjab called Continental Wrestling Entertainment, and won his own company's World Heavyweight Championship two months later.

He was inducted into WWE's Hall of Fame in 2021, the same year as Kane, Molly Holly, Eric Bischoff, Rob Van Dam, the Bella Twins, New World Order and . . . Ozzy Osbourne.
