Salman's presence causes stampede at WIFW
New Delhi, Oct 26 : Bollywood heartthrob Salman Khan's charisma was on full show at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion week as the star's presence led to a stampede, forcing him to beat a hasty exit.
Salman, who walked the ramp along with brother Sohail Khan, former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen, singer Shibani Kashyap, the pretty Riya Sen and her sister Raima Sen and Ustad Amjad Ali’s sons Aman and Ayan, for a sponsored show by US-based Indian designer Sanjana Jon last night, had to beat a hasty retreat after a large number of mediapersons and others gathered at the venue after the show to have a close encounter with the actor, causing stampede in their eagerness to have a sound byte from the star.
Initially, everything seemed to be fine post the show as long as Sanjana Jon gave bytes to the media along with Sohail, Shibani, Aman and Ayan. However, all hell broke loose th moment Salman entered the scene with cameramen and people from the electronic media vying with one another to have a perfect picture or sound byte of the star.
This coupled by the eagerness of the general public to have a close audience with the star, led to a chaos.
The security staff at the WIFW had a hard time controlling the mediapersons and others.
Salman was even heard asking the security personnel, ‘’What’s happening here.’’ After the jostling by the crowd continued, Salman was shepharded away from the spot. Later, the actor and his convoy of cars were seen leaving the venue.
Earlier, Salman’s presence on the ramp for Sanjana’s show evoked huge cheers from the crowd present. Hordes of women present on the occasion went crazy as Salman shashayed down the ramp along with Sohail.
The incident underlines the huge following that Salman enjoys among people across the country, especially among cinegoers.
Incidentally, the success of Boney kapoor’s ‘Wanted’ is being seen largely a result of the draw that the Bollywood heartthrob enjoys among the general public.
His draw remains undiminished, despite his recent release ‘Main Aur Mrs Khanna’ evoking a lukewarm response at the box office.
Sources close to the film star said Salman is in Delhi also in connection with the promotion of his latest film ‘London Dreams’, which features him alongside Ajay Dvgan and South Indian actress Asin.
