The scene was no different in the Gaiety theatre where Shetty had to almost fight his way through the fans who had gathered here for a glimpse of the actor. But it was at Cinemax, Andheri that the fans really hit the jackpot. The actor got up on stage and danced to entertain his fans. The crowd was no less appreciative of the star or his performance.

No wonder that they will talk about their experience with the superstar of Bollywood for years to come. It seems, regardless of what the critics say, the audience are still in love with SRK.
