The tables turned when stars turned fans for Canadian pop star Justin Bieber’s concert, which was held in Mumbai on Wednesday evening. Actors such as Alia Bhatt, Arbaaz Khan, Kriti Sanon and many more were part of the
much- awaited concert. Here’s what they told us about their experience:
Like many other stars, Raveena too accompanied her children to the DY Patil Stadium. “My kids are huge fans of Justin Bieber. I am so excited to see their happy faces because they finally got to see his show,” she said.
Actor Arbaaz Khan attended the concert with estranged wife Malaika Arora Khan, and their son, Arhaan. When we asked him about his experience, he said: “It was good fun. I took my son Arhaan with his friends and they are huge fans of Justin Bieber. It was a great experience, worth the wait and the buzz. My son enjoyed the show and that was the highlight for me.”
The actor, anchor had a great time. He told us: “The stadium was quite packed and the girls were going absolutely crazy! It started off a little slow but it picked up midway and everyone went crazy. He has got something very real about him. He has got his act together and you can see that now when he is performing. He did point out to people, especially the girls — he knows his audience well. He said that he will come back to India. For me the ending was the highlight and the energy in the stadium was amazing.”
The actor went with daughter Kiara. “It was an amazing show and the highlight was looking at my daughter Kiara so happy. I like him, I am not a Belieber or anything but I like his music. I was like the secret service today — I was watching my daughter and her friends but they could not see me. Everything started on time, everything was properly managed. Bieber was fantastic for a change. He came wearing shorts and a T-shirt and looked so simple.We reached the venue at 4.30 pm because I picked my daughter and her friends from school and reached the venue directly,” he said.
Actor Arjun Bijlani also joined the Belieber brigade when he attended the concert. “It was a great show for me and I went there with my family and everyone enjoyed. Justin looked like a simple and humble guy. He apologised to the crowd and announced that it was his last track and sang Sorry. People loved it! The crowd was managed well but there was a lot of traffic outside the stadium. Everyone was going crazy,” he said.
As a fellow musician, Anu Malik too enjoyed the show. He said: “I am so happy that a star like Bieber has come to India and is performing here. I think he is a hit among the youngsters and it’s great to see them so excited and happy.”
