In a bizarre incident, two girls from Khammi village of Mathura district, Uttar Pradesh, stole cash from their homes and ran away in a failed bid to meet Tiger Shroff in Mumbai.
According to a report in DNA, the girls took the impulsive decision after watching a show of Shroff's recently released Baaghi, with the aim to meet the 26-year-old actor in person.
An SP said that they left home under the pretext of using the washroom and proceeded to make their way to the railway station to catch a train to Mumbai. What they had in mind after reaching Mumbai is anybody's guess.
Fortunately, before they could board a train, a local tempo driver spotted them lurking around the station during the wee hours of Tuesday and alerted villagers, who in turn got the cops involved. The duo later confessed to stealing ₹1000 each and said they did so to meet Tiger Shroff.
When HuffPost India contacted Shroff for his reaction, he seemed quite flabbergasted, but also genuinely concerned. "At the end of the day, what these girls did was out of love," he said, in a phone conversation. "I feel blessed that people admire me in such a manner. But at the same time, I'd request them to behave more responsibly. Anything could go wrong. I feel especially sad for the parents, who must have been worried till the time the girls were found."
