The actor was in the city for the promotion of his new film 'Sarkar Raj'. The news of his arrival spread in the city in the evening and his supporters thronged a cinema here, the police said.
As soon as Bachcan reached the hall, the crowd went out of control to have a glimpse of the star. The police had to baton charge the crowd to control it.
Bachchan later said: 'My fans were too enthusiastic to meet me.'
