Celebrities are popular, have money, live in the lap of luxury, are busy all day in their hectic schedules, until they are in demand. They stay in demand until their fans love them and fans are really the only thing that control their life. Once their fans turn against them, their careers are over, as no one will watch them so no one will want to spend money on them. That is why, most of the stars are very cordial towards their fans when they meet them. They are polite, they oblige them and sometimes even fulfill their silly demands.
Today we have a list of 20 such stars who have had memorable fan encounters which they can never forget. Some of these encounters are also unpleasant, as not all those who call themselves fans of the actors are actually their fans. A lot of them just turn out to be perverts!
On the sets of
Kaun Banega Crorepati
, Amitabh Bachchan met a hundred year old woman. This woman is a patient of the Alzheimer’s disease and remembers nothing but Amitabh Bachchan. She is so obsessed with him that she does not even eat her food without looking at a picture of Amitabh. The meeting between them had been arranged by Big B himself, and he also celebrated his birthday with her. Later, the woman also danced with the star.
The actor sure lucked out when it came to kind of fans he has. Despite facing criminal charges and spending years in jail, his loyal fans have stuck to him.

Not only that, the cricketer also sponsors the tickets of his fan for all the matches held throughout the country.
The actor has accumulated much love throughout the years. One of his fans from Haryana walked for 42 days to meet him and camped outside his house when he was told that the actor was out of town. He slept on the road until Akshay returned and met him as soon as he got the chance. He told Akshay he could not have afforded any other means of travel and Akshay, although thrilled to meet him, advised him to return to his family who must have been worried by his absence.
Well, who isn’t a fan of the Master Blaster? However, Sachin has a special fan, who enjoys a lot of popularity, by the name of Sudhir Choudhry.

It has been quite a while since Sonal was seen in a hit film, but that has not discouraged her admirers.

One day, when he sent some 8000 roses, Sonal expressed the desire to know him and thanked him through social media.
Shah Rukh Khan
Remember Shah Rukh Khan’s film ‘
’? The Gaurav that we saw there seems to have been inspired by Durgesh, who is also a Shah Rukh Khan look alike and an ardent fan. So much so that it is hard to spot the difference, especially now that he has donned Gaurav’s look from the film. He even featured in a video for the movie Fan.
A while back, Dino Morea’s car broke down, leaving him stranded on a road. A passerby inquired about the incident and it turned out that he was a fan, who helped the actor by dropping him near his destination and took selfies with the actor.

The actress is known as a homophobe, and we right here have found out the reason behind it for you. In a club, the actress met a fan who claimed to be in love with her and proposed to her with a necklace. Instead of handling the delicate situation with grace, the actress panicked, screamed and started to cry. The rest, as they say, is history! It is saddening how the actress who has always claimed and tried to be the boldest in the industry is so trivial and insensitive.
Slut shaming is a serious issue all over the world, but it was brought to the forefront yet again during the shoot of the finale of the show Raw Star, when a fan slapped Gauhar Khan, who was the host, for wearing short clothes despite being a Muslim. Instead of apologizing, the man stated that Gauhar was violating Islam by not covering her entire self.
Actresses have it worst when it comes to having fans. A group of disgusting men, calling themselves her fans, tried groping Sonakshi Sinha in 2010 during a social event! However, we all know how brave Sonakshi is and despite the meek roles she has done in most of her movies, she is pretty badass in real life, so she handled the situation like a pro, making sure that the men got a lesson for a lifetime.
In another similar encounter, when Koena was performing for New Year’s eve at a hotel in Mumbai, a fan came up to her asking for a picture. When Koena agreed for the Selfie, the so called fan came closer to her and dared to inappropriately touch her, leaving her bewildered.
