Disha Patani stalked by a fan, hires bodyguard


Actress Disha Patani was left petrified when a male fan stalked her, so much that she has decided to have a bodyguard with her whenever she steps out.

Disha, who made her Bollywood debut with a supporting role in ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’, narrated her harrowing experience to a popular tabloid. Disha revealed that the incident happened when she was shooting for a commercial in Delhi.

Reportedly, the man showed up at Disha's hotel on two consecutive days to meet her. The actress further said the man relentlessly followed her around the city, be it to her set, a shopping mall or a movie theatre. Disha wasn't aware of the person, but her team had noticed him and they removed him from the hotel premise when the man engaged in a scuffle with the hotel staff who prevented him from going into Disha’s room.

"I am relieved that the episode is over. I am deeply overwhelmed by the love of fans. When I got to know about it, I was in for a shock. It was an unpleasant experience," Disha, allegedly dating actor Tiger Shroff, told Mid-day.

A member of Disha's team added, “The hotel bouncers were called and the man was thrown out of the premises. The manager was prompt in taking action.”

A shaken Disha has refused to register a complaint, but has hired a bodyguard to be with her whenever she steps out, to ensure that such incidents do not happen again.

Disha may have worked in only a couple of movies, but she has a huge fan following. She is facing the cons of being in showbiz.
