Samantha was mobbed by curious fans in Madurai, and some of them also indulged in violence. The actress was there on Sunday afternoon to open a new outlet of a beauty care company of which she is the brand ambassador.
As soon she got down from the car, they immediately mobbed around her. As she had some bad experiences in the past with fans mobbing around her, local police was called immediately.
They guided her to safety and they separated the mob from her. Samantha was seen in a White embroidered Kurta and she was completely ‘covered’.
Police intervened and resorted to mild lathi-charge to disperse the crowd, sources said, adding that the police action triggered the anger of the crowd, and a few of them punctured the wheel of Samantha’s car, besides damaging the vehicle.
A few years ago, Samantha was the chief guest at a store launch event in Tirupati. A huge crowd gathered mobbed the actress as soon as she got off her car. Even as her security guards struggled to keep the unruly mob at bay, three youth groped the actress in the melee.
An infuriated Samantha yelled back at the offenders who disappeared from the spot immediately. The police security was beefed up immediately and the organisers apologised to her.
