Ajay Devgn, Kajol cancel event in US; upset fans
Bollywood actor couple Ajay Devgn and Kajol, who are currently in the U.S for promoting Ajay’s upcoming film ‘Shivaay’, upset fans after they cancelled a meet-and-greet session with guests who had shelled out huge amount of money to attend the event.
The infuriated fans not only asked for refund, but also hurled abuses and even hit the organisers, as per a report.
Ajay and Kajol took off for the U.S last week and held press meets in New York City, Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco. The couple also visited Facebook and Google headquarters in California. They were also supposed to do a meet and greet session with the guests, which ultimately, had to be cancelled.
Ajay and Kajol, who have a huge fan following in the States, were supposed to meet fans and interact with them for about an hour. Along with the interaction, there was apparently going to be a performance by the two actors.
A report in DNA quoted a guest from the event as saying, “It was a colossal nightmare. It was called a meet-and-greet, but Kajol didn't even bother turning up. Ajay came down, met the guests for a minute, showed no remorse, just informed everyone that Kajol is not well and cancelled the whole thing."
"The organisers had no other option but to return their money. But some of the guests even hit them although it wasn't their fault at all. People are now asking for refunds in California, New York and Chicago as well. People are extremely upset because Kajol got time to go for Google and Facebook meets but for us, she fell sick. That's ridiculous!" the guest further said.
Directed and co-produced by Ajay himself, ‘Shivaay’ also stars Polish actress Erika Kaar and debutante Sayyesha Saigal, and is set to release on October 28.
