The top Bollywood stars landed in Auckland on Thursday, April 20 for the New Zealand leg of the Da Bang tour. The chaos at the Auckland Airport was evident of the huge fan base for the top Bollywood stars that included Salman Khan, Bipasha Basu, Prabhu Deva, Badshah, Maniesh Paul and Daisy Shah. 

Although the flight was delayed by almost half an hour, the fan started flocking towards the international arrivals of the Airport an hour before the arrival time. Clearly, they didn't want to miss any opportunity to see their favourite superstars. 

But much to the fans' disappointment, the artists were escorted from a private and restricted airstrip, from where they headed to their hotel.

Dozens of fans were waiting for him at the hotel for 4-5 hours wanting to catch a glimpse of the superstar before he came out of his room for the press conference,

“I just want to see him, that’s all. It would be a dream come true to see him up close,” said an exciting fan at the hotel.

After a successful show in Hong Kong on Sunday, April 16, the Da Bang team seems all set to give another high-on-energy show in Auckland on Friday, April 21.

Salman Khan, who is returning to New Zealand after 20 years, said that he was excited to be back and perform for his fans in New Zealand and Fiji.

He said that although he has many shows and movies but he still feels nervous. “It is like one of those parties that you throw at you house and you think that no one might turn up…We have been doing this for so many years but I still feel nervous.”

The stars were in a light and fun mood and looked relaxed. They attended the meet and greet held afterwards for the sponsors of the Da Bang show.

The Da Bang team has prepared some surprise acts for their fans and it would be interesting to see the line-up of top Bollywood celebrities perform together on one stage.
