Indian film director and producer Karan Johar introduced the leading actors of Student Of The Year to British fans at Cineworld, Feltham on Tuesday, 2nd October 2012.
The My Name Is Khan director attended a well-organised meet and greet with debutants Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt at the cinema in west-London.
Johar and the cast were greeted by hundreds of fans, who were eager to catch a glimpse of them. Earlier on, we caught up with the cast and director who asked for some tips and about what they should do during their promotional visit to Feltham.
We told them to take as many photographs and give as many autographs as they can and drive the crowd crazy and they exactly just did that.
Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt were mobbed by screaming fans who wanted photographs with them and the actors happily posed away.
Addressing the crowd at the cinema, director Karan Johar said: “Thank you all for coming out to see us tonight and for all your love and I only have more love to give back to you. Make sure you come and give our movie love on 19th of October. If you are young, you will love it and if you are not young, it will make you feel young.”
Varun, who has spent most of his childhood in London and has studied at Nottingham University, said that it feels special to be in London and thanked fans for their love and support.
Not many people know but Alia Bhatt is a British citizen and said that London is special to her just like her first feature film as a leading actress, Student Of The Year.
Sidharth, Varun and Alia also performed on The Disco Song from the film with fans singing along and cheering the newcomers.
A lucky fan girl from London also had the chance to dance with Sidharth and Varun on Ishq Wala Love while Alia grooved to Radha with a fan from Bradford.
Johar also gave out exclusive merchandise to fans and participated along with the cast of the film in a Q&A session.
Eros International will release Dharma Productions’ Student Of The Year in UK cinemas on 19th October 2012.
