Bollywood actors are always surrounded by fans. Whether they are at an event or even heading towards their gym – several onlookers always manage to throng their favourite stars for selfies. While most of the times, the celebs oblige, there are times when they excuse themselves in order to get some privacy. Recently, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety actress Nushrat Bharucha was present at an event, where one of her fans crossed the line and behaved rather inappropriately while asking for a photo.
The guy ended up getting too close for comfort to the actress and wrapped his hand around her waist, leaving her in shock.
The incidence took place in the first week of June, when I was in Pune for an event. There was a huge crowd and several event organizers were also present at the venue.
I think actors are given certain resources which is what audiences look at and feel that ‘yeh log hamesh safe hi rehte hai. Things are properly organized for us.’ Sometimes, you get stuck in a situation where no amount of planning and security can really help. A lot of times, a lot of things don’t work together. One thing we really need to know is that on an everyday basis, we are surrounded by fans. It is not only on award functions and events. Even if we step out for a coffee, we are surrounded by fans. We are prone to such incidences much more than the audiences think.
What I really want to say is that you do not know what can really happen. Even if you have people around you, things will happen. During that time, you need to have the smartness to deal with the situation yourself. With me, maybe the guy didn’t have the intention and got carried away. It is just that at that point, one needs to be able to handle the situation calmly and say that it is not okay.
We’re glad Nushrat came forward and spoke to us about this issue as many actresses often avoid talking about such topics.
