Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, whose latest film “Pathaan” is creating new records since its release last week, greeted scores of admirers outside his Bandra home last night.
Several screaming fans waited for the actor with several clicking pictures and recording videos from their smartphones. Dressed in all-black and a bandana, Shah Rukh on Sunday made an appearance on the balcony of his sea-facing bungalow Mannat, one of the landmarks of Mumbai.
On early Monday morning, the 57-year-old actor shared a video of the crowded street with a bus and a few cars stuck amid the sea of fans on his official Twitter account.
“Mehmaan Nawaazi Pathaan ke ghar par… Thank u all my Mehmaans for making my Sunday so full of love. Grateful. Happy. Loved,” he captioned the post, referring to a popular dialogue from “Pathaan”.
Shah Rukh waved, blew kisses, greeted fans with a namaste and a salaam. He also spread his arms in his signature pose and performed the hook step of “Jhoome Jo Pathaan”, the title song of his recent release, in front of the hundreds of people waiting to catch a glimpse of their favourite star.
Later, the actor also requested fans to not climb on the bus.
“Pathaan”, which is Shah Rukhs first big screen release as a lead in over four years, continued its record-breaking run at the box office as it collected Rs 429 crore gross worldwide in four days, said production banner Yash Raj Films (YRF) on Sunday.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film follows the titular spy (Shah Rukh) who comes out of exile to thwart the diabolical plans of the terrorist group Outfit X, led by Jim (John Abraham), from launching an attack on India. Also starring Deepika Padukone, “Pathaan” released on January 25.
