After the episode went viral, some internet users pinpointed toward Padukone's carelessness of not wearing a mask.
There were others who expressed concern.
"What sort of security is this, She only went from the door to the car n people were throwing themselves on her n pulling her bag very poor security, (sic)" wrote one user on the Instagram post shared by Viral Bhayani.
Looking back: She had been mobbed in New Delhi as well
This is not the first time Padukone faced such a situation. In 2019, when she was shooting for Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak in New Delhi, her fans had rushed to the filming site to catch a glimpse of her.
Thankfully back then, no one tried snatching anything from the actress.
Chhapaak was the last movie starring Padukone that released on the big screens.
Movies: She has several projects in her kitty
Padukone, clearly one of the most successful Bollywood actresses, is working with Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham in Pathan.
She also has Shakun Batra's film, featuring Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi, in her kitty.
She will also be seen with her husband Ranveer Singh in the ambitious project 83, which is based on India's historic 1983 cricket World Cup win.
