Enrique is in Delhi
Fans can hold their breath as Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias has arrived in India for his multi-city tour. He landed in Pune on Tuesday evening by a private flight from Los Angeles.
The 36-year old music sensation was seen happily posing for the shutterbugs as he arrived at the airport. “It feels great to be back in India. The last time I was here was in 2004, so it’s been many years but I’m happy to be here,” he said at the airport.
After his maiden performance in Pune yesterday, he will be performing in Delhi for the first time tomorrow, followed by Bangalore on October 21. “I had to fly for 22 hours and right now I am going to try and get some rest at the hotel. I want to walk around the city and try some good food and have a great show. I want to thank everyone for all the support; all the fans in India and radio stations playing my songs,” he added.
His crew arrived a day before he did, to set up for his first gig in Pune. It seems that Enrique’s crew is as adventurous and also looking forward to eating some Indian food. For the first stop on their week long itinerary, the crew had requested some typical Maharashtrian food that Pune is known for, along with other Indian dishes. On the menu for them was Misal with Pav, Bharli Bangi, Maharashtrian Style Chicken Curry, Phulka and Vada Pav.
Enrique will be flying to Delhi today. Who knows if he has plans to feast on some Old Delhi chaat and butter chicken in the city! FULL STORY
