Shahid Kapoor has had his share of female admirers, but there is a certain fan who has left him rather disturbed.
She has been accosting him at odd hours, claiming to be his wife and even dodging security to ring his doorbell in the wee hours of the morning. Shahid, so far has been trying to deal with it cautiously, since the woman happens to be the daughter of an iconic yesteryear actor. But this newspaper refrains from revealing her identity.
The latest in the string of incidents, was on Wednesday, at around 3 am. According to eye-witnesses, the woman, who lives in the adjacent high-rise, scaled the boundary wall, managed to dodge the security and ran up to Shahid’s apartment on the 13th floor of Raheja Classique, and began pounding on his door. As soon as the actor realised who she was, he called up the security, and four of them rushed upstairs and escorted the woman away.
Mirror has learnt that the woman, in her early 30s, has had a troubled life. According to some of distant relatives, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, she could never quite recover from the twin blows of her father’s death and professional disappointments. “In fact, a few years ago, she made her debut in a B-grade flick, where her role was drastically reduced. It was a huge blow for her,” said the family member.
Her obsession with Shahid is about six-months old, say her relatives. A reason why she even shifted home to be closer to her favourite star, who she claims is her spouse.
According to Shahid’s friends, he has had to face several awkward moments in the recent past when she suddenly “popped up near the gate and blocked his path.” There have also been reports of her waiting near his car and making several desperate attempts to go up to his apartment and meet him.
“Shahid, who is aware of her background, has been sensitive enough to ignore these incidents so far, but Wednesday night was a little serious and he has decided to highlight this as a security breach with his society,” added the actor’s friend. In the absence of any responsible family member who can perhaps handle her delicate situation, Shahid has not had an opportunity to discuss the problem with anyone close to her.
