WWE Star Denies Involvement in Shooting

1/22/2011 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

WWE star The Great Khali has been linked to a shooting in India that happened on Friday -- but the 7 foot superstar tells TMZ he had nothing to do with it.

According to varying reports, a bodyguard working for Khali allegedly fired shots into a crowd and reportedly injured three people (other reports say only one person was injured).

But Khali tells us, "I am deeply saddened to hear of this incident and am disappointed it has been incorrectly reported that I was involved.  I had left my friend's house a half an hour before the reported shooting took place and did not have any bodyguards with me. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people who were injured."

In addition to his wrestling career, Khali had small parts in "The Longest Yard," "Get Smart," and "MacGruber."

True, the man has a unique face. However, I truly wish you guys would use real names somewhere in the post. his last name is not Kahli. He is Dalip Singh Rana and was a world class body builder before trying his hand at pro wrestling.

Um, I'm sure anyone familiar with wrestling knows that someone called "GREAT KAHLI, wasn't named that by his parents. This whole story reeks, if anyone has actually followed this guy's career, he wasn't a bodybuilder BEFORE wrestling, he was a cop in India. For Christ sakes, get your stories straight. for anyone that thinks his height and weight he wouldn't need a bodyguard, think again, he's a HUGE star in his homeland and they flock to him like they do the stars here in Hollyweird.
