Salman, Shah Rukh, Jacqueline: When Bollywood celebs dealt with ill-behaved fans
A concertgoer who had come up to Sonu Nigam for a selfie yelled at him and the performer. Aditya Roy Kapur felt the same way when a female admirer repeatedly tried to kiss him at a recent event. Even Akshay Kumar had a fan charge at him when he jumped barricades to get close to the actor, and the same incident happened to Ranbir Kapoor when a fan evaded his security and got close to the actor. Those in the public eye are having it rough because fans are getting too close, so violating security protocols. Take a look at the following for a few historical examples…
Singer Priyanka Chopra Jonas
The actress had a fan beat her up after the latter grabbed her by the arm during filming of Anjaana Anjaani. She had mentioned it at one of her appearances, adding, “He just took my hand and started asking for pictures. To put it mildly, I was terrified. I reached for his collar and gave him a slap. After that, I felt so afraid that I had to leave.
Jacqueline Fernandez felt awkward as she greeted 50 sets of twins at the Judwaa 2 promotional event since one set was acting up. The men bypassed the guards, shoved aside the bodyguards, and made a beeline for Jacqueline. Co-star Varun Dhawan came to her aid when the twins seemingly passed the line of propriety, and he politely requested them to leave the set. The pair’s planned meet-and-greet with the film’s stars was also scrapped.
The actor Salman Khan
A man in his twenties who was a fan of Salman Khan sought to hug and kiss him as he was promoting his flick Bodyguard. The Dabangg star reportedly lost his temper and slapped the crazed fan in an attempt of retaliation.
Ms. Sushmita Sen
Former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen, who always keeps her cool, recently got hold of an overly enthusiastic fan and gave him a piece of her mind. A young man, only fifteen at the time, thought he could get away with inappropriate behaviour towards the actress because of the large number of people present. Instead, the actress grabbed the boy by the throat and held him for his unacceptable behaviour towards her. She recalled the incident at an event, explaining that she didn’t take any action against the youngster since she knew a 15-year-old boy wouldn’t have been taught that such behaviour is wrong and should be treated as such.
Khan, Shah Rukh
Unfortunately for Shah Rukh Khan, a fan in Amsterdam sought to snap a selfie with him by force, which led to an unpleasant incident. But, SRK lost his temper and shoved the prankster away when he got too close.
When a fan at Kolkata airport tried to put his arm around Vidya Balan for a selfie while she was promoting Kahaani, the actress became irritated and left the scene. In spite of her assurances, on the third attempt, he was called out for his misbehaving.
John Abraham had a fan bite him in Mangalore. When she finally spotted her favourite actor, she snatched his hand and began to bite it. To protect himself from her inappropriate behaviour, the actor reportedly slapped her.
Author: Nargis Fakhri
A admirer of Nargis was constantly taking photos and videos of her on the set of Azhar. Despite the actress’s requests, the admirer continued to take pictures. When her co-star Emraan Hashmi intervened, the fan left the sets after a lengthy conversation.
