The makers of Kismet Love Paisa Dilli had roped in 30 bodyguards to protect Mallika Sherawat from crowds while she was promoting the film.

Now, Arjun Rampal has joined her league. The actor, who will soon visit a girls’ college in Delhi to promote his upcoming film, Chakravyuh, will be accompanied by 30 bodyguards as well. “We are all aware of Arjun’s popularity among girls. Keeping that in mind, we organised five security guards and some police protection for the college visit,” says Prakash Jha, director.

“When the event management company suggested we rope in some more security, even we were surprised. Then the organisers told us that they wouldn’t be able to take responsibility for the actor’s safety if we didn’t arrange for more guards, which is why we had to comply,” he says.
