Senior officials said that respective district and city police chiefs have been asked to review the situation and provide adequate security cover at hotels and places of shooting. The beefed-up security cover was apparent when the ‘Raees’ film crew went to Adalaj stepwell on Monday for shooting. Gandhinagar district police had deployed over 150 personnel, including a deputy superintendent of police, two in spectors and 10 sub-inspectors.
“Security of the actor and the film crew has been reviewed and police deployment has been increased for the future instances as well,” said Shivanand Jha, city police commissioner.
In the past fortnight, SRK has faced protest by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) at Bhuj and Ahmedabad. Early on Sun day morning, bike-borne youths had pelted stones at the hotel where the actor and film crew were staying in which a car used by the crew had got damage.
