Shahid Kapoor has asked for additional bodyguards as embarrassing acts by his female fans are getting too hot to handle

Shahid Kapoor is realising that stardom comes with its share of fan following, which can flatter and also embarrass one. Even as girls are going weak-kneed over Shahid’s cute boy-meets-hot body image thanks to his soaring popularity post Jab We Met and Kaminey, the actor feels that his female fan following is proving to be a major threat. Consequently, the actor has demanded extra bodyguards during all his future shoots

Shahid is currently shooting in Bangkok for Parmeet Sethi’s untitled with Anushka Sharma for Yash Raj Films. We had reported on November 12 about how a group of Indian girls on a Bangkok beach had demanded that Shahid should completely bare his upper torso for them. Being the shy guy that he is, Shahid, of course, was extremely embarrassed. A source says, “Shahid has a huge female fan following and is constantly mobbed at various places. At times it becomes too risky for him. Not wanting to cause any further problems, the actor has now asked for extra security.”

The source continues, “Usually, Shahid also has fans waiting outside his vanity van and they refuse to move till he meets them. This at times hampers the shoot schedule, disturbing not only Shahid but also the film unit. Now, Shahid wants a group of 5-6 bodyguards to be with him on the sets and also whenever he is shooting at an outdoor location where there is a greater risk of fans barging in on the sets.”

An official from YRF,downplayed the request and said, “We haven’t got extra guards for the shoot. YRF, does have adequate security for all its shoots at all times. Should an artiste ask for additional security, it will most certainly be provided. However, no additional security has been asked for during this shooting schedule.”
