Director Abhishek Kapoor seems to have attracted a lot of attention after the success of his last release, Kai Po Che. And the newfound fame seems to have come with its own share of problems.

According to a source, of late, a lot of struggling actors and screenwriters have started queueing up outside the director’s apartment in Khar, looking for an opportunity to work with him.

“Most of these people are newcomers who want a break in the film industry. Some of them want him to audition them so they can be cast in his next movie, while others come with various ideas for scripts,” says the insider.

Since Abhishek isn’t always at home, his family has to deal with these random visitors. As a result, they have been getting disturbed. Apparently, there is one man who has constantly been harassing the director by landing up at his doorstep for some time now.

The source says, “Abhishek has now set up CCTV cameras outside his door, so he can keep track of who to open the door for. He has even asked the guards not to allow anyone to enter the premises without a specific purpose.”

When contacted, Abhishek confirms the news, saying, “Yes, I have set up cameras as a security measure.”
