Geetanjali from Himachal Pradesh’s Hamirpur is a big fan of Salman Khan and when her husband Shankar Musafir bought tickets for the Bollywood star’s latest flick, Sultan, she thought it would be just another day.
She was, however, in for a big surprise.
Musafir booked the entire 120-seat ARV Cinemas in Gurukul Mall a day before the release of the film about an ageing wrestler so that Geetanjali and he could watch the show on the first day.
“When Bajrangi Bhaijaan was released, Geetanjali asked me to get five tickets for the show. But I could not arrange it. Now, I decided to surprise her by booking the entire show,” Musafir, an alumnus of Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University, said.
New Delhi-based educationist Musafir married Geetanjali in April this year.
Listen to a wrestler commenting on Salman’s moves in Sultan:
“I am so happy. I don’t think anybody has given such a surprise to his wife in Hamirpur,” Geetanjali said.
Amit Thakur, the managing director of the mall, said that Musafir booked all the seats in the theatre and told him he will come with 120 people.
“But we were surprised to find that he came only with his wife,” he added.
As Musafir posted their photos from the theatre on Facebook, his friends could not stop commenting about his romantic side. Some even complained that he was setting the bar too high.
Sultan, Khan’s Eid offering to his fans, is getting rave reviews at the box office. The movie has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and also stars Anushka Sharma, Randeep Hooda and Amit Sadh in key roles.
