New Delhi: From someone else’s perspective it might seem eccentric, but fans have a reason for every crazy thing they do.
For Vishal Singh of Lucknow it’s the sheer joy and contentment of offering reverence to his favorite Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, in a quite unique way.
Believe it or not, but the 38-year-old Indian businessman has plastered every square inch of his house with SRK’s pictures and spent his honeymoon waiting outside the actor’s house in Mumbai, hoping to catch a glimpse of his idol.
“I will do anything that will make Shah Rukh Khan happy,” said Singh, who is into selling homeopathic medicines in Lucknow.
SRK’s fans over all over the world would find it hard to beat, but Singh’s house is a shrine to Khan. There are cut-outs of Khan on the ceiling, the television and even on cushions. Singh has even changed his name to Vishahrukh Khan.
“No one can be like Shah Rukh, but I wanted my name to have his name. My children are named Simran and Aryan, which is his son’s name,” he said. Simran is the female lead (played by Kajol) in one of Khan’s biggest films ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’.
Khan has met this fan of his several times that included Singh’s honeymoon, when the diehard follower drove more than 1,300 kilometres (810 miles) with his wife to Mumbai.
Now, it would be interesting to see if King Khan would return the favour and as promised would visit Singh’s home.
“I’ve been wishing to open up a store of homeopathic medicines, but I won’t open it until Shahrukh comes and cuts the ribbon,” said Singh.
