Shahid was shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's romantic comedy, Kaminay in Pune. It was meant to be a hush hush shoot. But when students came to know that Shahid was shooting in the city, words spread like wild fire and Pune being a campus city for college students, it was not difficult to locate shooting in the city. His fans mobbed Shahid.
Finally, director Vishal Bharadwaj had to ask for extra security to take care of his fans. In the chaos that ensued, some local news reporters who had come to interview Shahid too were shooed off by the security men thinking they were just Shahid's fans trying to get closer to the actor. Shahid however was extremely surprised as he had never imagined he would generate so much craze ever.
