At times, the best intentions do not lead to the best results. And that's what happened with Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty when they arrived to promote their film at a car showroom in Santacruz on Friday

The place was packed with fans, media and bouncers who were around to ensure the actors’ security. However, chaos ensued when all three actors came in an open car and got mobbed.

As soon as they entered the showroom, cameramen, photographers and fans became one and the bouncers were completely lost when it came to controlling the crowd. Saif recorded the entire incident on his mobile phone. Later, he tried to control the situation by asking everyone to relax. However, it didn’t help matters and he ended up lashing out at a cameraman saying, “Aap hi zimmedar ho iske, kya aap janwar ho? (You are responsible for this — are you an animal?)”. Later, the actor exited from the back door and left the venue.

The result? A few cameramen and photographers left with damaged equipment worth nearly a lakh. The car company, however, accepted its mistake and paid the media persons immediately.
