    Chunky gets robbed by a fan

    Chunky Pandey, who is shooting for Anil Kapoor's Short Cut in Bangkok, was robbed of his shopping worth over Rs 1 lakh and his passport by a guy posing as his fan. Chunky, who is shooting with Akshaye Khanna, laughs, "I lost my passport to an ardent fan and had to get a fresh one issued by the Indian embassy here.

    It was my day off from the shoot and I decided to go shopping. I carried my passport with me, for VAT refunds. A Bangladeshi guy came up to me saying he was a big fan. He even helped me carry my shopping bags as it was my spot boy"s day off."

    What happened next, says Chunky, was straight out of a funny Hindi film. "The Bangladeshi guy was with me for over two hours, following me and the one time I took my eyes off him, to light a cigarette, he vanished!

    He not only took my passport but also my shopping goods worth 2000 US dollars! Normally, I buy fake stuff but that day I had bought a lot of expensive designer originals. I lost all of them all because of a fake fan!"

    "I made a police complaint and got my passport done again. I couldn"t sleep for two nights! I thought all Bangladeshis loved me as my films have been very popular there but I was conned by a local. He gave me a fictitious name and said that his dad was with the embassy. Now I have stopped trusting my fans!" mourns Chunky.
