“Rustom is ready to show Delhi University (DU) a real Good Morning. Ladies get your Lipstick on, I bet Akshay Kumar will be picking 1 of u lovelies for a lil cheek to cheek to Tere Sang Yara song,” wrote actor Illeana D’cruz on Instagram.

The post went viral in no time among DU girls who were waiting with bated breath for actor Akshay Kumar at Hansraj College. However lady luck smiled on Simran Vigg a student from a private university in Sonepat, Haryana as she was called on stage by the actor.

“It was like a dream come true. I have not even informed my parents that I am going to Delhi to meet Akshay. My friends study in Hansraj and with their help I got entry. I still can’t believe that he danced with me, hugged me and made me sit on his lap,” said Vigg.

Kumar was in the college with the starcast of his upcoming film. “I really love Hansraj College, it’s very beautiful. I am glad that you gave us the opportunity to come here and be a part of you,” said the actor.

The crowd started cheering when the actor delivered his popular dialogues such as, Abe bache ki jaan lega kya and Don’t angry me from his films Mr and Mrs Khiladi and Rowdy Rathore. “Jaate-jaate apni ek nishni chor kar jana chahta hun,” says Kumar while throwing his sunglasses in the air. “It was a straight catch but the rest of the students pounced on me uske 100 tukde ho gaye,” says Rahul Sharma, a student of Daulat Ram College who got the glasses.

The enthusiasm was such that students broke down the barriers and jumped off the security panels to click selfies with the stars. Kumar had to request them to not push each other as many of them got injured. “Dhaaka mat dijiye, please don’t push each other,” said the actor. But, there was no stopping his fans!

Due to the massive turnout, many students weren’t even able to enter the venue or get a glimpse of their favourite stars. Preeti Rani, first year student of Daulat Ram College says, “I was not even able to get a glimpse of the actor. There were no security arrangements and my left toe got hurt so badly that I can’t even walk properly. There were separate sections for boys and girls but it all got mixed up.”
