KUALA LUMPUR: Actor Sofi Jikan does not know why Datuk Farid Kamil has "cast him as a villain" in the police report made against him last week.
The 48-year-old actor whose real name is Mohd Shoffi Jikan said he had always been nice to Farid and had the utmost respect for his fellow actor friend.
"He has not contacted me, and thus I'm in the dark as to why he made that report. It doesn't matter if he wants to remain friends with me or otherwise but I'll always think highly of him and wish him well," he told mStar Online recently.
Two days ago, Sofi uploaded a photo of Farid and himself on Instagram, and in the caption, he asked Netizens "what was the true value of friendship?"
He also said Farid's decision to upload and "like" photos of his recent detention by police for alleged drug use on Instagram baffled him.
Sofi was detained on Feb 6 after giving a statement at the Mutiara Damansara police station, following a police report lodged by Farid last Jan 31.
In his report, Farid had alleged that Sofi and two other artistes had spiked a beverage that he was drinking, and this resulted in his outburst at the Kota Damansara traffic police station on Jan 11.
Sofi was tested positive for ganja and is being investigated under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952. He was released last Friday after being remanded for three days.
The actor said he would continue to act as usual and would soon complete the action film Polis Evo 2.
Farid was arrested for allegedly attacking a policeman and a civilian at the Kota Damansara station on Jan 11.
Five days later, he was charged at the Petaling Jaya magistrate’s court with two counts of voluntarily causing hurt, and one count each for disorderly conduct and obstructing a public servant from carrying out his duty.
