Celebs misbehaved publicly-Kareena, Gauahar, Nagma...


Being a celebrity and having a large fan following sounds wonderful. Fans who support and admire are a blessing as the celebs enjoy their level of glory because of them. But many a times, some overzealous fans cross their limits which prove to be a bane rather than a blessing.

Recently, when actress Raveena Tandon was in the US to celebrate India’s Independence Day, she had such an experience. The ‘Shool’ actress shared that an organiser of the event named Neeraj Agnihotri, apparently drunk, misbehaved with her and made nasty remarks. She then called out to others who took the drunken man away.

This is not a singular instance and many celebs have faced such torments of abuses, mobbing, stalking and misbehaviour.

Kareena Kapoor Khan

Kareena Kapoor became a victim of a person’s mischief while she was shooting in Bhopal for Prakash Jha’s political drama film ‘Satyagraha’ in 2013. The film had a sequence where the actress was required to push through a crowd. As the shooting for the scene commenced and Kareena jostled through the crowd, a junior artiste took his chance and groped her. The incident left Kareena shaken, while her co-stars of the film including Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal and others were equally shocked.

Apparently, the crowd comprised of some junior artistes and local people. The production team later caught hold of the guy and took action.

Parineeti Chopra

The effervescent actress is known for her straight-forward attitude. In mid-2014, the ‘Ishaqzaade’ actress became the target of a male reporter at an event in Mumbai. According to a report in the Daily Bhaskar the reporter annoyed Parineeti with some unwanted questions. The report also quoted an insider revealing that the reporter also misbehaved with her, to which the actress lost her cool and asked him to leave the event. She later controlled her anger and interacted with the media person present at the event.

Parineeti also revealed that a fan tried to pull her during the promotion of one of her movies.

Gauhar Khan

Model-actress Gauhar Khan who featured in films like ‘Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year’, ‘Ishaqzaade’, ‘Game’, was the host of singing reality show ‘India’s Raw Star’ in 2014. On the day of shooting the finale episode, one Akil Malik from among the audience somehow got on to the stage and slapped her for wearing short dress. A report in India Today said the twenty-four-year old youth criticised Gauhar for wearing skimpy clothes and dancing to item songs “despite being a Muslim.” The man also tried to touch her. Before Gauhar could realise what was happening, he slapped her leaving her in tears.

Akil was later handed over to police who arrested him on charges of molestation.

Nagma

Actress-turned-politician who contested the 2014 parliamentary elections as a Congress member from Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut, faced harassment during her campaigns. In one incident she was pushed around by an unruly mob during a public meeting and a man allegedly groped her. She immediately slapped him. The former actress later told a television channel that she has been facing such blatant harassment almost every day during her campaigns.

Nagma, 40, made her acting debut with Bollywood film ‘Baaghi: A Rebel for Love’ in 1990. She also featured in several regional movies such as Bengali, Punjabi, Bojhpuri, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Marathi.

Genelia D’Souza

Actress Genelia who is now married Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh and has a baby boy, was in Andhra Pradesh’s Vijayawada in November 2010 to launch a new showroom. As soon as she reached the inaugural event, the crowd waiting for her arrival went berserk. A fan breached the security and tried to misbehave with her. This enraged the actress and she reflexively slapped the fan who was later taken into police custody.

Anushka Sharma

The cheerful actress is known for her no-nonsense attitude. Once, during an awards function a male fan was constantly trailing her and asking inappropriate questions. The ‘PK’ actress lost her cool and called the boy mad and warned him not to misbehave.
