What was supposed to be a reel confrontation between Siddharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh, turned into real when crowds played villain on the sets of The Villain recently. And in midst of all confusion, Balaji CEO Tanuj Garg’s chauffeur was caught in between.
An eyewitness said, “The shoot started at 9 pm and caused a major traffic jam as a large number of people thronged the area to see the two actors. The production house had trebled the security cover for the artistes whose vanity vans were parked in the adjoining lane, just a few minutes away.” “But the crowd was soon out of control and the shoot was put on hold while the cops arrived to restrain the mob. The cops had to resort to lathicharge and Tanuj’s driver was caught in the mob. After a few hard knocks, he locked himself up in the car and stayed there till it was time to go home.”
