Mumbai: India reeled with ‘Obamania’ even as Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter about the euphoria created. The US Prez on his first official tour to India left no stone unturned in winning the hearts of nationals right from the word go. He took the trip by storm and people couldn’t stop raving about him. Evidently, Bollywood celebs too are awestruck by Obama’s charisma and here are some of their tweets as to what they felt about the visiting Prez.
Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan, famous for taking fun jibes, tweeted days before Obama arrived: “American president is in India. If I had known wouldn’t have gone looking for him all over America instead met him in Andheri or Ghatkopar.”
Actor Rahul Bose posted on Twitter of Obama’s interaction with students in Mumbai: “Brilliant interaction between Obama & students. The President at his best. Michelle too was warm, easy. Well done students. Great questions!”
Salman Khan, on the other hand, was more jocular. He wrote: “U think Mr. Rajnikanth will give Obama his darshan???”
Actor Anupam Kher wished Obama to come to India often: “Off to Hyderabad for a performance. Mr. Obama, come at least once a year. (The) Roads were less bumpy. So things can happen if government wishes,” Anupam posted on his Twitter page.
Preity Zinta hoped Obama would fall in love with India: “Airport today had too much security & few passengers. I hear President Obama arrives today. I’m sure he will fall in love with India :-)”.
