Mumbai: Bollywood stars have an incredible fan following that can go to any extents to grab a glimpse of their favourite star. The evening of Holi had a weird surprise in store for Hrithik Roshan. The ‘Guzaarish’ star’s crazy fans gave him edgy nerves when he came out of Yash Chopra’s house in Juhu and was about to drive home.

Just as Hrithik comforted himself in his car and his chauffeur started off, three of his fans, posing as beggars knocked on his car’s window. On seeing this, Duggu’s driver slowed down the speed in order to avoid injury to them. But one of the fans was planning a filthy prank. He pretended as if he was ran over by Hrithik’s car and started screaming “Maar daala, maar daala (Killed me, killed me)”.

Narrating the incident, a source while talking to a tabloid revealed, “The idea was to convince Hrithik that the beggar had been badly injured.”

“Hrithik and his driver knew that they were not wrong. But then they got really scared. What if the beggar had been really hurt,” said an eye witness.

However, Duggu’s chauffeur drove him home and returned to the spot to help the injured man.

But he couldn’t believe his eyes when he realised that some of his fans had enacted the entire scene only to make Hrithik get off his car.

“I was concerned. I sent my man back with money and a car to take the beggar to a hospital if need be. But when he got there, he realized that he was faking it. It was a ploy to get me out of the car.”

Well, we can’t blame your fans Hrithik. You are too good to be left unseen!
