Producer Ekta Kapoor's screams drive her 'abnormal secret admirer' out of a media meet
The producer went through a harrowing experience on Wednesday afternoon when she encountered a 'stalker' during a media interaction at Balaji House. She was talking about the integration of her reality game show, 'Box Cricket League' with 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' when she saw a middle-aged man clicking her photographs at a fervent pace.
An eyewitness says, "He was standing in a corner and clicking away her photos. Ekta screamed causing the man to panic. He dropped his identity card and mobile phone, and fled from the place. We found out that he was an imposter, posing as a scribe of a Bollywood trade paper. His phone contained several photographs of Ekta from various events."
Shiv Kumar, an employee of the paper in question, says, "That man is abnormal and has been chasing Ekta Kapoor since a long time. The identity card that he carries to enter various film events and parties is fake. He has also been beaten up by security personnel earlier. I hope Ekta takes strict action against him."
Sources say the man, estimated to be in his mid 30s, was spotted outside Ekta's house on Sunday. "He had been following her for some time. He is mostly seen outside her office and residence," the source adds.
Ekta is learnt to have told her security personnel to keep an eye out for the man.
