[an error occurred while processing this directive]When Katrina Kaif was in Ahemdabad recently, she not only got mobbed but also got chased by bikers. Says a source close to Katrina, "It happened during the promotion of her forthcoming film Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani at a mall in the city. A 5000-strong crowd turned up. Soon it became chaotic with fans screaming her name and threatening to break the security cordon. In the ensuing melee, Katrina, trying to escape the enthusiastic crowd, even hurt her leg as it got stamped upon by people on stage.

A gang of her fans followed her car on bikes, right up to the hotel she was staying at, and refused to leave until the actress met them. Adds the source, "The moment she emerged from the venue, some guys jumped on their bikes and followed her car whistling, screaming and singing songs loudly till she reached the hotel. One fan even stood in front of her refusing to let her enter till she gave him an autographed picture."

Katrina complied with their wishes. "She signed their CDs, posed for pictures and spoke to them in a bid to calm them and send them packing. Katrina says she's used to fans following her in small towns on bikes and chasing her. "You have to wave and smile and they are fine. I was more terrified on seeing the huge gathering at the mall. It was pretty scary as they were all screaming our names. They were over-excited. I thought if I stayed on stage they wouldn't do anything but soon the stage started shaking and I felt it was going to collapse."

"It was the most terrifying moment of my life the stage crashing down in front of the fans and I getting swallowed by the crowd! The feeling of suffocation gets to you. Fortunately, there was one particular massively built security guard who rushed me out of the stage and back to the hotel so well that I was able to breathe a sigh of relief when I entered my hotel room. He didn't allow any persistent fans to enter the lobby, too."
