Riteish’s fans, who had gathered from the nearby cities just to get a glimpse of him, went berserk after the actor came forward to interact with them. The crowd apparently rushed towards him breaking the security barracks.

Sources say that the crowd was so excited to see him that an escalator and three glass doors were damaged in the melee.

“The mall was jam-packed with people and Riteish could not exit the mall for a good three hours. But fortunately, first aid was immediately provided to the people who were injured in this ruckus. Heavy security was deployed to ensure the fans’ and the actor’s safety,” a source said.

"We didn't expect this kind of response. But Aurangabad has always been Riteish's second home and fans from the neighbouring regions too had come down to meet Riteish," another source from the mall said.

Mall’s president Anil Iravani said, "It was overwhelming to see such a response; his fans had come from all over. Yes, some doors were broken but thankfully no one was hurt in a big way."

When contacted, Riteish replied, “Yes, we faced some difficulty but we did manage to get to the airport on time.”
