Lakshmi Rai was at the receiving end of some fan frenzy at the shooting of her upcoming flick, ‘Onbadula Guru’, in Puducherry.College students and fans came to the shooting spot of her film and some even reached out to touch her. Post Mankatha, Lakshmi, who is happy to be getting good scripts in Tamil as well as from Tollywood, has become choosy with her roles, the current one, with Vinay Rai, being one of substance. Director P.T.Selvakumar was canning a song, Vidiya Vidiya Idhayam, penned by Madan Karky with K’s music, picturised on the lead actors near the Boat House in Puduchery .

A huge crowd gathered in the morning, waving to Lakshmi Rai and taking her autograph while shooting proceeded smoothly . The trouble started around 4 pm when a huge group of college students reached the spot. In a while, the crowd went crazy, with youngsters mobbing Lakshmi, reaching out to touch her.The few security personnel present could not do much. Cameraman Chelladurai and other unit members quickly escorted her to the car. Shooting was disrupted for the rest for the day while the producer sought recourse to police protection later.

“Oh, it was nightmarish,“ concedes Lakshmi, “but there was no mishap, as reported in the local media. I know fans indulge in such activities out of love and affection, and I don’t want to make a big issue of it.”
