Mumbai: After all the drama that unfolded during the last few weeks, Amritanshu a crazy die-hard fan, finally met Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan, after camping outside his bungalow Mannat for three whole days.
Inspired by SRK’s character ‘Rizwan Khan’ in the recently released movie ‘My Name is Khan’; Amritanshu who hails from Delhi, decided to adopt the same act, to visit his favorite star Shahrukh Khan. Amritanshu spared no efforts in tracking SRK whereabouts in various parts of Mumbai.
What a journey this had been for Amritanshu, who has put in remarkable efforts, from tracking SRK for two weeks from Delhi, to waiting outside Mannat for three days; stalking each person who in anyway was connected to SRK.
On reaching a roadblock, Amritanshu through personal contacts, approached the Red FM team to help him out, in his quest to meet SRK. Excited by his passion, the Red FM Delhi team decided to help him and literally gate crashed an event at Delhi where SRK was present. Sharat, Red FM’s programming head managed to contact an organizer, and somehow managed to enter the event. Another team member from Red FM, Pankaj managed to speak to Karuna (SRKs manager) and Barkha Dutt, who promised to make SRK meet Amritanshu! But these efforts were futile as Amritanshu never managed to meet his hero.
A week after futile wandering on the roads of Delhi, Amritanshu not willing to easily give up on his dream, decided to take his journey forward by going to Mumbai, geared with a placard in his hand which read, “My name is Amritanshu & Shahrukh I want to meet you.” After spending three days and constant support given by the Red FM team, Amritanshu finally managed to meet his idol, SRK at Mannat.
Red FM Mumbai’s morning jock, Malishka accompanied Amritanshu to Mannat, and sat with him through the evening. Amritanshu described his meeting with SRK, as a very candid and engaging one. Their meeting ended with SRK repeatedly thanking the Red FM for helping Amritanshu facilitate his unique and remarkable journey.
