what else did they say in the newspaper interview ?...
and I didnt know there would be promotions n' excitement and all ..
Lol .. I thought it would be a small-scale event ...
I had no idea Indians in SA knew them...
We were the largest group of Indians outside of India brought here by the British to settle in SA in 1860.
Durban has the most number of Indians in SA. If you walk in the city, you would think you were in India because Indians are everywhere. That is why all the stars who come here are comfortable in Durban.
Pavitra Rishta is very popular here and Sushant & Ankita have a huge fan following. They also said in the interview that they would love to come back for a longer time. They toured some places today and said that they loved our beaches. We went walking on the beach today in the hope of meeting them. Missed them by 20 mins. However we saw many Indians (from India) walking on the promenade so I'm sure they were members of the show.
We all also loved them in Jhalak dik laja and Sushant was outstanding. I'm sure we would see them dazzling us tomorrow. Normally these shows are sold out so there would be crowds of people in the audience. Will let you all know about the show on Sunday as you are three & a half hours ahead of us & the shows finish around midnight here. I think Sushant & Ankita have a global fan following as they are the greatest!!
@bold...that is so true. Here in Trinidad and Tobago (West Indies), we get ZEE TV on cable,so Sushant and Ankita are also loved alot here. About 48% of our population is of East Indian descent (the Indians were brought to the West Indies around 1847 as indentured labourers to work on the sugar plantations after the abolition of slavery). So Indian (country) citizens would also feel at home here in Trinidad. There are many mandirs and mosques here, sometimes side by side with churches. If Sushant and Ankita ever visited Trinidad, they would be warmly welcomed and greatly loved!
All the best to Sushant and Ankita for their SA visit!! Have a great performance, get some rest, some privacy, and I hope you get to see a bit of SA!!!
