The Desi Boyz and their 'galz' have been going around promoting their film all across the country. But their Pune experience is definitely not one Chitrangada will forget too easily.
While the Desi Boyz gang was performing at a promotional event in a Pune mall, the crowd around Chitrangada went out of control. The actor even ended up suffering scratches and hurt her ankle in the process, reports Mid-Day.
"I have never seen so many people together in my life. Plus they were so aggressive that they started pushing the railings and even got into a scuffle with the security guards. I realised then how serious the situation was. There was a point when I fell and almost got groped, but thankfully Akshay was right behind me and he bailed me out," Chitrangada told the tabloid.
The crowd was apparently much more than the capacity of the mall the event took place in, according to the daily.
"The mall had three floors packed with people because the stars were to perform. However despite many security guards, things went awry and the crowd was trying to reach out to the actors. The crowd was way beyond the capacity of the mall and it was very difficult to control over 4,000 people at one go," a source told the tabloid.
Incidentally, the same evening at another event, John Abraham too got into a scuffle with a man who was eve-teasing a girl.
It's no surprise then that the organisers called off the show mid-way. Well Chitrangada, now you know the price of popularity.
