There have been various incidents in television as well as bollywood
industry where the fans have gone to an extreme level to impress their heroes
or idols. Here is o
ne more unusual incident which happened with Zee TV Aladdin's
lead protagonist, Mandar. The story of Alladin, produced by Applause
Entertainment revolves around the thrilling life journey of a young 15 yr old
boy and his magic lamp. There are many fans who watch this show religiously and
connect easily with the character of Alladin. A die hard fan of Alladin, Amit
Mohanty, a Class XII commerce student of STUART
Orissa was extremely sick and suffering from malaria. He refused to consume
food and told his parents and brother Sumit that he would eat only if Aladdin
called him personally. Amit’s brother Sumit sent a mail to Zee TV requesting
Alladin to talk to his brother. Complimenting the request, Alladin talked to
him and wished him speedy recovery.
Aladdin called Amit one evening and did not reveal his identity initially,
but knowing the nature of his voice Amit figured that it was in fact his hero
who was enquiring about his good health. Aladdin gave him a lot of confidence
as he had not eaten since past 2 days and wanted him to quickly get to better
health so that he could study hard and also watch Aladdin regularly. Amit
promised to follow his request only if he agreed to meet him and also said that
Aladdin should personally answer his calls whenever he wished to speak.
The 19 year old boy, Amit’s favourite characters are Junaid, Jasmine,
Aladdin and Jeenu while he just hates the evil JAFFER. “I was very excited and
trilled on receiving phone call from Aladin. I am die-hard fan of Aladin and I
watch the show religiously. It was a very special moment for me. I think it was
psychological, I was unwell and within two days I was completely fine. Oh God!
And I am also thankful to Zee TV to make this happen,” quipped the ardent fan,
To catch young Aladdin as he woos the lovely
Princess Jasmine and combats the evil moves of Jaffer, tune into Zee TV at 9:30 pm, Friday to Sunday.
