But neither star was able to finish their special task. The reason? The moment Vijay Deverakonda appeared on the stage in the centre of the mall, the audiences went into a tizzy. A source from the mall spoke to ETimes and revealed, “The moment Vijay took to the stage, there were sounds of swooning all round. The organisers and volunteers were shocked to see that a few female fans fainted and a few other girls started crying. Loads of fans had posters and sketches of Vijay and then the chants of ‘Vijay we love you’ started.”
So far so good, but soon the frenzy escalated into a full fledged stampede like situation, as leagues of fans pushed the barricades to get closer to the centre stage where Vijay and Ananya were standing. The security feared that the situation could get worse, so Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday had to leave mid way for the safety of everyone in attendance.
The Liger promotional activity was left unfinished as the crowds went berserk.
