Gurmeet Choudhary: “I Am Worried My Wife’s Wellbeing”

A  “fan”—if one may call such fanatics  by such a mild name—has threatened to commit suicide.And actor Gurmeet Choudhary is nonplussed  as  to  how to react to such fan frenzy.

 Says he, “I’m not a stranger to fan attention. I  do have my share of admirers and fans. To me they are God.Whatever I am, whatever I’ve achieved  is because of them. I owe my  career  to them. But then I also have the right to some privacy. There has to be some area of my life that  fans cannot enter.”

Gurmeet confesses he has had his share  of  intrusive fans. “But they’ve mostly been women, asking me to  to do all kinds of things with them. This is  the  first time I’ve been stalked down  by  a man. I  don’t know how to react  because he threatened  to kill himself and then he says there danger to my  life. So  I don’t know what he wants to  do. Kill  me  or  kill himself.”

 Gurmeet blames  this era  of a widespread social-media network for direct access to stars and celebrities. “Earlier fans didn’t know stars’ whereabouts. Now everyone  knows where we are. This man who wants to kill himself or kill me  or whatever, knew I was in Dubai for  a  magazine launch with my wife Debina when this  whole thing broke out.”

 Gurmeet is worried about his wife and family. “I am not scared for myself.  I can take care of myself. But what about my family? I can’t be with my wife all the time. What if this stalker  tracks her down somewhere? This  is  why I say it is both flattering and scary to gave devoted fans.”

Gurmeet  gives  full credit to the Mumbai police for taking charge of his and his family’s security. “I can’t tell you  all the details of the security arrangement.  But the  Mumbai police has been truly supportive and I feel my family is safe. I just don’t want this misguided man to  come to any harm or cause any harm. He claims some  man is threatening my life. I don’t how much he is imagining and how much  of what he says is true. But the amount of  information that he has on me  and my movements  is every frightening.”

 This man  first tried to get in touch with Gurmeet through his manager. “He said he wanted to talk to me. But when I sensed something wrong I stopped  him. That’s when all this desperation started. I want to ask him to please stop. This kind of  overbearing adulation is not welcome.”
