According to Mumbai Mirror

A source at the event commented: "Before the conference began, it was decided that Bipasha will not be asked any questions pertaining to her personal life and John Abraham. And if anybody still did, the director of the film, Rohan Sippy would take charge of the situation."
When a comparison was drawn between Abraham and Daggubati, the No Entry
star is said to have refused to answer the question.
"After the conference, in spite of the bodyguards around her, Rana himself started escorting her," added the source. "Rana told her fans not to get too close to her. Hyderabad being his own home town, maybe he wanted to show off to her that his word counts."
