Over the past few months, a group of ‘fans’ have reportedly been wandering around stars, getting their selfies clicked. In fact, paparazzi shooting pictures of the stars too seem to have started seeing familiar faces around. One such star, who’s facing this constant barrage is Varun Dhawan.

Says a photographer, “They’re not fans; they’re people who are getting other fans to the location, and making money after the fans have clicked pictures with the stars. Varun did spot someone, who was making money from the fans who got to click selfies. He was indignant.”

 

Such ‘fans’ have also indulged in fistfights with the paparazzi in the past.

Recently, when Jacqueline Fernandez emerged from a restaurant, the same group came in between the shutterbugs and the actress, and trued to get selfies organised, when a fight broke out and the photographers were injured.

The fan-friendly Varun, who was also Jackkie’s co-star in Judwaa 2, now wants to make sure these elements don’t come near him.

Interestingly, this isn’t quite a new phenomenon. In the days of yore, some freelance photographers would get a couple of fans to gatecrash with them for big events and parties. They’d take money from them not just to get pictures clicked with the stars, but also to partake in dinner and cocktail pleasures served at the event.
