Salman Khan fulfills his promise to his fans of having a live show in Kolkata on October 23 as the first one on September 26 had to be cancelled at the last minute
Salman Khan clearly believes in practicing what he preaches. True to his ‘Ek baar jo maine commitment kar di, phir main apne aap ki bhi nahi sunta’ dialogue in his recent release Wanted, Salman is going out of his way to live up to his commitment in real life by visiting Kolkata on October 23 for a live performance.
A source says, “Salman had gone to Kolkata on September 26 for a live show but was unable to perform as the venue was over crowded with his innumerable fans and there was a mad rush which resulted in a stampede. The event was held at the Mohammedan Sporting Club which could accommodate 20,000 people but over 40,000 fans turned up there. “
“Consequently, the organisers had no choice but to cancel the show. That’s when Salman promised his fans to rework the show schedule and come back with a bang. The actor will now go to Kolkata on October 23 and will be performing at the Salt Lake Stadium which has the capacity to accommodate around 1,25,000 people,” adds the source.
One of the event organisers says, “Unfortunately the show had to be cancelled the last time as the ground exceeded its capacity. Salman had given his word to his fans to be back.”
Salman Khan says, “I am very happy to go back to Kolkata because I had committed to my fans and once I make a commitment I stick to it no matter what happens. And that is why I am going back to celebrate the success of my recent release Wanted and the launch of my forthcoming film London Dreams.”
