People here are not star struck (I am not including hormonal preteens or rockstar groupies here for obvious reasons).

It doesn't. I revolves around the idea and the image of him. For most of the international audience, 'bollywood' translates into 'singing and dancing', which further translates into SRK's romantic song sequences on top of a hill in Europe or his dance routines in most of his films. Basically, SRK-the icon is what is huge, not SRK-the actor. 

p.s - I am an SRK fanatic too Tongue

I agree and Canada as wellSmile
 
I mean Akshay my hottie visits Bramton, Canada or any other area in Toronto theres no hoop-la amongst the Canadians. Only the desis stalk him and its so easy to get his autograph and picture as I have and othersSmile.   Recently, when Akshay was shooting at the CN TOWER, my relatives got pictures with him.I  wish Salman would visit  thereI think I could get a hug and more. In india, I probably not even get close.LOL
 
The same with SRK he can enjoy a cigarette and people will think h just a common man. Its the desi's that draw the attention. At American Global Awards, SRK was given no importance. Only, the slumdog Millionaire team including Anil KapoorSmile

Yes, at the time when Slumdog Milionaire released, yes, it was given importance. But trust me, now no one cares bout it, just the way no one cares bout SRK, AB or Aish as you said. Now be it Anil Kapoor or anyone else from SM, they are like any of the rest of the bollywood stars overseas. Many know them, but won't jump onto them for an autograph or anything. As you said, they can walk around overseas without being mobbed. =)) 
 
Don't mind me asking, but are you an Anil Kapoor fanatic? Embarrassed

I dont think SRK is popular enough to be stopped for autographs by non-desi people but I was commenting that in terms of bollywood, his is the international symbol of bollywood movies (in the interactions that I have had with non desi people) 
Exactly my point, that's what I was trying to say too but people obviously took it in the wrong sense. :/
No non-desi would stop for an autograph from any bolly star, but all I was saying that it's SRK who mostly is known as the face of bollywood overseas, along with Aish and AB, again, this is what I have gathered from MY interactions. Embarrassed
