Dubai: Fans thronged the Karama hotel in Dubai as Argentenian football icon Diego Maradona and dazzling Bollywood actor Mallika Sherawat opened a new branch of Chemmanur International Jewellers.
After making a difficult entry amid the huge crowd gathered, Maradona could only manage to say “No 1 Chemmanur Jewellers” before the photo session started, the Gulf News reports. Sherawat joined him a little later, and cut the ribbon.
“I love Dubai. Whenever I come to Dubai, I get such a warm reception and that makes me feel it’s all worth it. To know that they have waited for more than three hours in this heat – no one is more important to me than my fans,” Sherawat, who had just flown in to Dubai from the US, said.
