Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was late by almost two hours for an event here late Wednesday but he made up for all of it by dancing with the audience and crooning a song from his forthcoming film "Wanted".
Despite a shower, the crowd just didn't budge, waiting for the star and screaming "Salman, Salman".
Clad in a pair of blue jeans and an earthy tee, he set the stage on fire when he gave up to their cries of "Salman sing, Salman dance" and sung "Love me, love me" from the film and shook a leg too.
The actor was at the Asian Academy of Film and Television (AAFT), Marwah Studios, to promote "Wanted", releasing Sep 18.
Produced by Boney Kapoor, it has been debut-directed by choreographer Prabhu Deva. It also stars Ayesha Takia in the lead.
Known for his macho image, Salman, who is foraying back into an all-action film with "Wanted", also promised "mindblowing" fight sequences in the thriller.
"There is a lot of action in the film and it is going to be mindblowing. Mind you, it has all been done by me and not by a body double," he said.
"We haven't even used the usual cable work that much, so it has been very difficult and I even pulled a hamstring during one of the running sequences that took three months to heal. But it has all been worth the effort," he added.
Also present at the event were the director and the film's music composer duo Sajid-Wajid alongside AAFT boss Sandeep Marwah.
