SRK weaves his magic in Varanasi

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Trust Shah Rukh Khan to reach out to his fans in the most un­ex­pected ways. This time around, the ac­tor, along with co-star Anushka Sharma and film­maker Im­tiaz Ali, landed up in Varanasi to con­nect with fans, pro­mot­ing their up­com­ing film, Jab Harry Met Se­jal. Shah Rukh and Anushka’s pres­ence in the holy city brought ev­ery­thing to a stand­still, as a sea of peo­ple turned up to catch a glimpse of the stars.

In his su­per­star style, SRK clicked a selfie with the crowd, and then went on to rel­ish all things Ba­narasi.

The trio stopped at a 70-year-old paan shop and savoured chilled meetha paan. They also vis­ited a col­lege and danced to the songs of the film. Ac­tor-politi­cian Manoj Ti­wari, who was host­ing the trio, was at the col­lege and made SRK sing the pop­u­lar Bho­jpuri song, Lol­ly­pop Lagelu, ded­i­cated to Anushka.

SRK plays the role of a tour guide in the film, re­leas­ing on Au­gust 4, while Anushka is seen as a Gu­jarati girl who meets him on a solo trip in Europe. Jab Harry Met Se­jal has al­ready cre­ated a strong buzz, and its songs are a rage among young­sters.
