New Delhi: Bollywood actors and actress enjoy a massive fan following from around the country and world. However, they often get stuck in fan frenzy, especially when it comes to shooting at a local area.

However, with superstar Salman Khan, it is different, as the actor is enjoying a special security these days.

The ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ star is being shielded by 1,000 cops of the Uttar Pradesh police in order to protect the actor from fan frezy.

Yes! It’s true.

We all know that Salman is busy with his forthcoming movie ‘Sultan’ which is still in making. Currently, the team is in Bihargarh village in Morna Tehsil of Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh.

So the moment the locals got a hint of Salman Khan shooting in the village, the fans trooped towards the location.

“Salman arrived late on Tuesday night in a convoy of a dozen cars amidst tight security. He is staying at a farmhouse in the outskirts of the village. As soon as word spread that the star would be arriving, multitude of his fans began thronging the area, but they were kept at bay,” a source reportedly a leading daily.

“Salman was escorted to the farmhouse from the back gate. He had over 20 bouncers accompanying him. The road leading to the farmhouse was closed for the public and only people associated with the film could enter the premises,” the source added

So to avoid any manic situation, the state government has deployed 1,000-police officers for the shoot. In fact, UP CM Akhilesh Yadav himself is, reportedly, overseeing the security measures. He has also given strict instructions to the cops that they must avoid taking snapshots with the star or even shaking hands with him.

According to the media reports, Salman will shoot certain sequences of the movie in Bihargarh village which include a wrestling bout as well. In fact, the ‘Sultan’ team has also prepared a special akhada for the sequence.

Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, ‘Sultan’ also features Anushka Sharma and will hit the theatres on Eid this year.
