The makers of "Jazbaa" have hiked up the security of lead actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as they are afraid of her over excited fans.

Aishwarya was reportedly troubled during the wrap up party of "Jazbaa", when a huge crowd surrounded the actress at a night club in Mumbai. So the producers have decided to arrange more bodyguards for her.

"Recently, there have been a few cases of actors being manhandled by fans and so, we don't want to take any chances with Ash. She will be surrounded by 15-20 bodyguards during the promotional city tours," Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.

The report also quoted another source revealing about the earlier incident when she was almost manhandled by the crowd during the wrap up party of the movie.

"Aishwarya entered the party quite late and was accompanied by two of her personal security officers. As soon as the news spread about her presence at the night club, a huge crowd gathered outside to catch a glimpse of her. The club's bouncers and her security officers was no match for the surging crowd and had a tough time getting Ash out of the club. Now that the city tours are about to begin, the makers have decided to strengthen the security cover around the actress, considering her fan following," the report quoted the source.

Directed by Sanjay Gupta, "Jazbaa" also features Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi. The film is slated to for release on 9 October.
