Sooraj Pancholi had a strange fan encounter last Friday (May 26). A female fan came all the way from Chandigarh, Punjab, without informing her parents, just to meet the actor.

“The girl is a college kid from Chandigarh. She also runs one of his fan clubs on social media. She got Sooraj’s address and without informing her parents, caught a train to Mumbai. She landed up outside his house and told the security guard that she would like to meet Sooraj.

The security informed the house help as the actor wasn’t present at home,” says a source, adding, “However, once Sooraj returned and learnt about the incident, he met the girl and politely explained to her to never repeat this again. Sooraj then booked her return tickets so that she could reach home safely and made sure his chauffer dropped her to the airport.”

When contacted, Sooraj said, “I was extremely thrilled to know that the young girl travelled from Chandigarh just to meet me. But when I got to know that she didn’t inform her parents, it really put me off. This is unsafe and I don’t support this. I informed her parents, and my team was in touch with her to ensure she reached home safely.”

The actor was seen in Hero opposite Athiya Shetty, helmed by Salman Khan. Sooraj will next be seen in a Faruk Kabir film.
