For Ranveer Singh, it may have been just another occasion to sign autographs for his fans but for the team of his upcoming film, it turned out to be a nightmare.
The actor was in Durgapur, a small town in West Bengal, shooting for Gunday when a crowd of people surrounded him asking for photographs and autographs. While the actor obliged his fans, the bewildered crew had to wrap up the shoot for the day.
In a similar incident, when Ranveer’s co-star Priyanka Chopra went to a shopping mall in the town to buy books at a bookstore, the crowd got so unruly that the store owner had to call the police to escort the actress out safely. A friend of PC says, “Priyanka wanted to read up some local writers while she was there.”
Says a source, “The crowd was pouring in, in thousands to catch a glimpse of Ranveer. There were people waiting to click a picture with him. The team had no option but to stop the shoot. It was a crazy moment.” However insiders say Ranveer could have gone slightly overboard after seeing the public’s reaction soon after the launch of his Ram Leela trailer. “After all, he is so energetic and fun loving,” adds the source.
