On February 26, Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff went to Lucknow to promote their latest film, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. They went to Ghantaghar to talk to their fans at a promotional event. But the event turned into a messy one because of the huge crowd that gathered around. The fans were high on emotions and it led to a chaotic situation, with them throwing objects at each other, including slippers and stones as they were not able to get a glimpse of the duo. Both the actors were safely rushed to a distance from the stage. The situation was managed by local law enforcement, with force and lathi charge.

Mumbai police on April 11, had to resort to a mild lathi-charge to manage a huge gathering of fans outside Salman Khan’s Galaxy apartment in Mumbai. There was a sea of fans wanting to catch a glimpse of Bhaijaan as he came to the balcony to greet them on the occasion of Eid. This led to chaos and disrupted traffic on Bandra roads. Several social media videos showed people gathered outside Salman’s residence, blocking the traffic on the road when policemen started hitting them with sticks. The crowd instantly scattered while trying to run away from the police’ lathi charge.

The concert, which was held at the Jaffna Courtyard Open Air Arena in Sri Lanka, was initially scheduled in December but was later postponed to February because of bad weather.
