According to the reports published by Hindustan Times, Harshvardhan who had lots of fans around him all the time just to get a sight of him or autograph of him was once badly mobbed by his fans.
According to the report, he said, “I was attending an event where there was a huge crowd and my friends (who were also my bodyguards on days) were stuck somewhere and I was somewhere else, so when I was getting down from the stage I couldn’t find my friends and got mobbed. Everyone was trying to touch me and shake hands with me and later I found my hand sticky. I pulled my hand and found it bleeding. So, someone had slashed my palm with a blade. You know that thin cut that you don’t realise but it bleeds. So, these kinds of incidents have also happened to me. But mostly things have been positive with me and people have been kind.”
He even shared that next day of the incident he met late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray who noticed the cut on his hand and also enquired about it.
