While shooting for Rajneeti in Bhopal last week, Arjun Rampal was troubled by a group of young women who decided to follow him everywhere he went. The situation soon became very uncomfortable for Arjun as the girls turned up at every location where the shoot of Rajneeti was on and one of them even managed to reach Arjun’s hotel room. Startled by their behaviour, Arjun finally decided to take action against them.

A source from the sets of Rajneeti in Bhopal said, “There was a group of girls who used to come to the sets of Rajneeti every day. Initially, they wanted to click pictures with Arjun and take his autograph, which he gladly did. Then they started coming to the sets every day and started following him. They also reached the hotel where he was staying. One girl in particular wanted to click pictures with him daily. The matter reached a  point where Arjun asked the production unit to intervene. Later, one of the girls managed to get inside his hotel, found out Arjun’s room number and reached there. The security asked them to leave the hotel premises after giving them a stern warning. They were also warned that if they were seen anywhere around Arjun or on the sets again, they would be handed over to the police. The girls left without creating a fuss.”

Talking about the uncomfortable situation, Arjun said, “I guess they got a little carried away so the security had to intervene. They were at the hotel and on the sets every day. I gave them my autographs and photographs but they wanted to speak to me daily. They were strictly asked to leave when they reached my room.”

Emraan Hashmi is so eager about his forthcoming film Tum Mile that he ended up messing up all the hard work done by the film’s marketing team. The filmmakers were supposed to unveil the first look of the film along with the music release at a grand event on September 16 but Emraan has already unveiled the first look on Twitter.

An upset Kunal Deshmukh said, “An actor has to be responsible about what he is doing. What Emraan did for his personal publicity or for his fans was just not needed.”

Commenting on the exclusivity of the forthcoming event, Kunal added, “We had an entire marketing plan to release these unique visuals on the September 16 so that it grabs media attention. Otherwise it would be just another music release party where media persons watch songs, meet people, party and leave. We didn’t allow anyone to come on the sets throughout the making of the film. We only released Emraan and Soha’s look in the film and not of the 26/7 floods, which the film is based on. I will speak to the Bhatts (producers) and the music company will speak to Emraan.”

Emraan Hashmi confirmed the news but seemed clueless about the exclusivity of the visuals. “I didn’t know that these pictures were part of the promotional activities when I put them up on Twitter. Kunal sounded quite upset about it. I am not aware if they have cancelled the event. I will meet KD and solve the issue today. Making such a fuss is unnecessary,” said Emraan.
