Arjun Rampal mobbed by Delhi University students

Arjun Rampal

Arjun Rampal, who visited a DU college here today to promote his upcoming film "Chakravyuh", was mobbed by crazy fans who tore off the Bollywood star's shirt as he was taking a tour of the campus in an open jeep.

The film's starcast, also including Abhay Deol, Manoj Bajpayee, Esha Gupta, Anjali Patel and director Prakash Jha, found themselves in the midst of a fan frenzy generated by Arjun each time he visits his alma mater Hindu college.

Despite 30 security personnel being deployed, over-enthusiastic students found their way to the 39-year-old actor, who, dressed as a cop, was taking a round on the bonnet

of a police jeep.

"What are you guys doing? Leave me! Everytime when I come to this college I return with my shirt torn. You guys always increase my laundry and tailor bill," Rampal, who had studied Economics at Hindu College, said in jest.

The crew, who turned up for the event after a delay of two and half hours, danced to the tune of controversial song 'Mehangai'.

Bajpayee, who plays a Naxalite, chose to recite some dialogues from the film. He took the microphone by shouting 'Lal Salaam' and later recited his famous "Gangs of Wasseypur" dialogue 'Sardar Khan Nam Hai Mera'.

Abhay was heard repenting the fact that he did not study at Delhi University.

"What a turn up! What a nice crowd! Unfortunately, I did my studies from Mumbai and missed out all these fun. But I shot some of my initial films like 'Dev D' and 'Oye Lucky Lucky Oye' here," the 36 year-old actor said.

'Chakravyuh', which had its premiere at the recently concluded London Film Festival, is a social commentary on the Naxal issue. The film will hit theatres on October 24.
