HYDERABAD: A shoe was reportedly hurled at ‘Baahubali’ actor Tamannaah Bhatia by a 31-year-old man while she was attending a function.
The footwear was thrown when the actress had gone to inaugurate a jewellery store in Himyathnagar, police said, adding that it hit an employee of the store.
Karimullah, a BTech graduate, and a resident of Musheerabad allegedly hurled a footwear while the actress was coming out of the store, Narayanguda Police Station Inspector B Ravindar told PTI.
“The footwear missed its target, while it hit an employee of the jewellery store,” the officer said.
“Karimullah was immediately detained and during questioning revealed that he was apparently frustrated over the roles played by the actress in her recent movies,” the inspector said.
However, following a complaint by the employee, who was hit by the footwear, the police registered a case sections against Karimullah.
While the shoe missed its aim, Tamannaah was definitely taken aback by the behaviour. The security personnel acted immediately and caught hold of the culprit behind the act.
However, the arrested man explained Tamannah’s absence from Telugu films as of late as the reason for his misbehaviour. He called himself a ‘die-hard’ fan of the South Indian superstar.
Bhatia rose to fame after her roles in blockbusters Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. She has also acted in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi movies.
