According to the plan, after having a Darshan of Lord Balaji, Pawan Kalyan flew to Simhachalam to have a Darshan of Lord Appanna. Hundreds of fans flocked there to have a glimpse of their favorite which resulted in a stampede. The local police and private security deployed there could not control the mob which forced the actor and his crew to fly from the scene.
According to some eyewitness, Pawan rushed inside the temple with his shoes on in order to escape the mob. Temple executive officer Ch Narasinga Rao said that the matter had come to their notice but added that they were unable to confirm whether the actor had indeed entered the temple wearing shoes.
