This event or a seminar was held at Muzzafarnagar in Uttar Pradesh where Jawed Habib taught hairstyling live, to his audience. In this video, he can be seen spitting on her head not once but twice for a reason that whenever there is a lack of water, spit can come in handy. He is also seen saying “iss thook mein Jaan hai” meaning this spit has life in it! In response to this, the people are seeing clapping and cheering.
After the video has gone viral, netizens have taken it too personally shaming him and his brand outrightly on Twitter. What is more catchy is how the Woman, whose head he spat on has come into the limelight. She has given a statement that this was a deliberate work by Habib. Watch video:
So this is what #JavedHabib spit fiasco is all about: Habib seems to be an arrogant man who, when asked some questions by Puja Gupta during his seminar, told her he runs 900 salons whereas she runs just 1. Then, to humiliate her further, he called her on stage & spit in her hair pic.twitter.com/V4l2fA6Vbu

She claims that Habib did this on purpose because she kept questioning him about the things he was teaching. He also claims that he manhandled her. She says he asked her to keep quiet as he is superior to her, in the sense he runs 900 salons and she runs just one!
