Arjun Kapoor mobbed by fans in Aurangabad; watch video


Arjun Kapoor got a taste of what crazy happy fans feel like in Aurangabad. The young star, who has acted in mass entertainers quite often, was in the city to open a new apparel store for an international brand. To get a glimpse of their favourite actor, fans turned up in huge numbers. There was complete frenzy at the venue as people were in a tizzy to see him, even if it was just for a moment.

Arjun Kapoor found this immense show of affection from his fans very encouraging and welcoming. A source close to the actor said, “Arjun plays a Maratha warrior in the film, and he finds the legacy and history of Marathas both inspiring and interesting. Aurangabad is a city with a proud historical legacy of Maratha culture and rule. When fans turned up in huge hordes here, the organisers could barely keep up! Arjun found it a tiny bit intimidating, but eventually, he enjoyed his brief interaction with them on the spot. Hopefully, he will be in Aurangabad in future too, and get to meet his fans for more time.”

Seeing a mob of fans cheering for film, an overwhelmed Arjun Kapoor took to social media to thank everyone for love and support. He wrote, “Overwhelmed by the love from the fans in Aurangabad thank u so much for coming out to meet me… it’s been special… & sorry to all those that I couldn’t spend time with… love u guys for the madness hope no one got hurt.”
