Bollywood actors don’t have to try too hard to attract attention. But for Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘heroine’ Kareena Kapoor, the situation got a little out of control recently when she was shooting for her upcoming biggie in the suburbs. A few days ago, Bebo was filming a sequence of the movie at Veera Desai Road in Andheri when crowds started pouring in. Then gradually, the numbers kept escalating and, within an hour, there were around 500 people surrounding the set.

“They had found out that Kareena was shooting here. Since we only had her regular security with us, we got a bit worried. That fact that the crowd was trying to inch closer to the sets was scary, but Kareena’s security was of paramount importance,” says a unit member.

That’s when the filmmakers decided to bring in seven-eight additional security personnel. “Within half an hour, the guards arrived on the sets. We didn’t want to take a chance till they got there, so we didn’t allow Kareena to leave her vanity van. It was parked away from the set and was being guarded by a few crew members,” says the source, adding that the actor resumed shooting only once there was ample security to keep her guarded.

“Since the shooting was supposed to finish in about three hours, everyone was confident that things would happen quietly. But due to the chaos, we got delayed too,” adds the unit member.

When contacted, a spokesperson from producer UTV Motion Pictures confirms: “It was an outdoor shoot. But when we saw crowds swelling by the minute, we had to immediately call in extra security to not let things get out of control. In the end, everything was sorted.”
