Bangalore: Reel life heroes seldom get a chance to show their heroics in real life. But Ranbir Kapoor did get an opportunity to do so.
When the actor was recently in a mall in Bangalore to promote his next ‘Barfi!’, along with his co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz, an ocean of crazy fans mobbed the trio.
And that was when Ranbir had to put his presence of mind into action and flee from the venue along with his leading ladies. Junior RK was prompt enough to get hold of Priyanka and Ileana, protected them from the fanatic crowd and fled through the back gate of the mall.
Talking to a daily, a staff said, “Anything could`ve happened. It was the most horrific incident of fan frenzy I`ve ever seen, and I`ve seen plenty. The mobs just broke the barricades and descended on Ranbir, Ileana and Priyanka.”
“Ranbir acted swiftly and bundled his two co-stars out of the back entrance. The way the three of them Ranbir, Priyanka and Ileana ran out of the mall would have put Milkha Singh , P T Usha and Ivet Lalova to shame,” added the source.
