Oprah's Guards Scuffle With Indian Journalists
Oprah Winfrey's bodyguards reportedly came to blows with overeager journalists in the religious city of Mathura, about 90 miles south of Delhi, during the former talk show host's week-long sojourn to India.
While in India, Winfrey is filming her new OWN project, a documentary called Oprah's Next Chapter. On Thursday she visited the Taj Mahal in Agra, as well as a center for child widows who have been abandoned by their families.
"Oprah Winfrey was in one of the ashrams where the widows stay," explained Prem Gautam, the superintendent of police for the region, reports the Daily Mail. "Journalists wanted to go in, but were refused entry." The India Blooms News reports that bodyguards allegedly hit the journalists when they tried to approach Winfrey and were detained afterward, but Gautam assures that, after an argument, "it was all sorted," writes the Mail.
On her trip, Winfrey also visited the slums of Mumbai and the stars of Bollywood, including Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan.
