But the 1,000-plus fans who came to see the superstar there were a tad disappointed
In the second phase of expansion plans for his charity foundation Being Human, superstar Salman Khan recently visited Dubai to launch a chain of Being Human outlets – the store will sell the branded tees, trousers, jeans and watches. At a mall that the Blockbuster Khan visited, nearly 1,000 fans were there and waiting. It comes as no surprise ‘coz apparently Sallu rules the Khan roost for Hindi film fans in the Arab world. And that’s the reason he chose Dubai to launch his first store for Being Human.
Unfortunately, the launch event was not a pleasantly memorable experience for the eager hordes. Sallu entered the outlet, waved at fans, said a few quick hellos and left immediately, ‘coz the crowd went out of control. Fans started pushing the barriers and security guards, but luckily no one was hurt.
This is just the beginning of the Ek Tha Tiger star’s big plans for Being Human in the UAE. He will open 100 outlets in the region. About a month ago Being Human merchandise was made available at ten stores in the world’s fashion capital, Paris.
