So, when the star was at a theatre in Rajamundhry to promote his recently released film Gang, which is the Telugu dubbed version of the Tamil movie Thaana Serntha Kootam, he literally had to evade his fans by scaling a closed gate to get into his car outside.

Suriya interacted with the fans present at the theatre but at one point it became unmanageable with fans crowding him to get their selfies clicked. When the star and his managers realized that it would go beyond their control, they decided to make it to a closed gate and jump off the other side where his car was waiting.
