Bollywood megastar Salman Khan has arrived in Auckland with all the entourage of the Dabangg tour, earlier this morning and checked in a popular hotel in the CBD. The superstar and other lead artists in the troupe Bipasha Basu, Prabhu Deva, Manish Paul and Badshah looked a bit jaded after a 12-hour long flight but were very excited about performing live for their fans in New Zealand.

The show director, known as “Jordy,” had already arrived in Auckland a day before and was seen waiting for the megastar and other lead artists in the hotel. Apparently, entourage is travelling with seven main artists and 32 crew members. According to an insider estimate,  close to 200 people - artists, dancers and production crew are travelling in the entourage to make tomorrow's show a grand event.

The stars were quickly escorted to their individual rooms at the hotel, where they are poised to take a brief rest and then come out for a press conference sometime soon. Indian Weekender – the official media partner of the Dabangg tour would be bringing live from the press conference.

However, according to some insiders closely involved in managing the tour - Salman Khan – the man himself - is keener to jump on the rehearsal as early as possible to deliver another scintillating performance in this tour after Hong Kong.
