When people went to get the advance tickets for the Salman Khan-Ajay Devgn-Asin starrer London Dreams at a multiplex in Daryaganj in Delhi, they had to jostle way more than the average crowd that gathers at theatres for advance bookings. One reason for that could have been that the guy selling tickets at the ticket window was Sallu bhai himself ! Although the superstar arrived three hours late to open the advance booking for the film, the enthusiasm of the thousand-strong crowd seemed undimmed, and it became difficult even for the police to control it. But Sallu was undaunted, and with his trademark nonchalance, said, “Yehi Dilli hai!”
The strange part was that the crowd that followed Salman was mainly male. But why? “Arre, anyone can be my fan,” he said with a smile. Remembering the days when he himself went to the movies in crowded theatres, Salman said, “I had watched Arjun, starring Sunny Deol. I must say, what a crowd it drew.” That’s from one crowd-puller to another, but Delhi moviegoers are surely not throwing away one particular ticket they bought for this movie!
