Shah Rukh Khan was the centre of attraction in Berlin yesterday as scores of fans gathered to have a dekko of the Bollywood star. The actor was at Berlin's International cinema for the premiere of his blockbuster film Om Shanti Om.
Tickets for Friday night's premiere were sold out in minutes after the booking opened and some tickets were even being sold on German eBay website (for a much higher price). The organisers even had to arrange an additional screening to meet the demand.
What's more, SRK even seemed excited at the Berlinale Special Title- 'Om' given to his home production film. The Berlinale has been programming occasional Bollywood titles in the forum sidebar for about a decade. Apparently, this is the highest profile slot yet given to a Bollywood title here.
There is more good news for SRK fans as Eros International plans a mega release for 'Om' in Germany next month.
One thing is for sure, no matter which part of the world King Khan goes to, there are scores of fans waiting with bated breath to see their favorite Bollywood matinee idol.
