The attention and craze actress evoke in Tamil Nadu among their fans is almost legendary. For the past many years, one or the other has been audience’s favourite. In the recent past, Khushboo, Simran, Jyothika and Namitha have all faced the heat as to how it feels like ‘amid’ their fans.
Bubbly Hansika is the latest acting sensation who has caught the imagination of the youths in a big way. Referred to by her fans as ‘Junior Khushboo’, Hansika is just 3-films old and has miles to go before being compared to Khushboo, who has adapted Tamil Nadu’s culture and people as her own and has become the ‘daughter-in-law’ of the State thanks to her marriage to actor-director Sundar C.
Hansika was at the Express Avenue, one of the most-visited hang out places in the city, recently. She was shooting with Simbu as his heroine in his upcoming film Vettai Mannan and when she had a couple of hours during the break, she decided to go for some ‘window shopping’ at the Mall.
Obviously excited at watching Hansika at close quarters, many of Hansika’s over-eager male fans jostled among themselves to shake hands with her. Some even pinched her at her cheek. Before matters could go out of control, the security guards intervened in time and saved Hansika from her ‘affectionate’ fans.
Later, Hansika was escorted to her car by the guards.
