@shankardhawan it was wonderful to meet you and your family today. Shankar, "my biggest fan" came all the way from Bangalore with his family to meet me. Apparently it was his first flight journey with his family and they came directly to our hotel from the airport early in the morning. He was sporting my style and his son, Zoravar's style. It is so heartwarming and I truly feel humbled when my fans go to such lengths. Thank you Shankar and all my fans for your support. Love you all #lovemyfans #mybiggeststrength #fans #family
