7 Welcome to London actor Asad Shan, has revealed that he was mobbed by an overexcited fan at a screening of his debut film.
The star made a personal appearance as the credits rolled, surprising cinemagoers at London’s Cineworld, Shaftesbury Avenue.
Accompanied by leading lady Sabeeka Iman, Shan’s entrance into the theatre prompted one fan to scream with uncontrolled excitement and hysteria as she met the real-life Jai.
“At Shaftesbury Avenue – where it has been going house packed – a lady nearly fainted and couldn’t stop crying. Her husband, who was English, had tears in his eyes as he described the movie as the best experience of his life,” Shan told BollySpice.
“His wife was thanking god and screaming with joy. It was a totally remarkable and blessed day,” said the VJ-turned-actor.
After the red carpet premiere of the Hindi romantic thriller, its lead actors have continued promotions by meeting with fans at cinemas screening the production.
“This weekend has been absolutely amazing. We have visited several sites in London, and have been amazed with the turnout as we are both newcomers. We met loads and loads of fans while we sold tickets at places like Cineworld Ilford and The O2,” Shan went on to add.
The 7 Welcome to London stars later posed with fans at The Trocadero and Piccadilly Circus, after celebrating the film’s success at an exclusive West End venue.
