Believe you me, nobody in the States besides the Desi population cares about Sharukh, Amitabh Aishwarya or any other bollywood star. Hell the average layman does not even care that much abotu their own mega stars,. Angie, Pitt... you name it. They can walk in central park in broad daylight and nobody would rush for autographs. People here are not star struck (I am not including hormonal preteens or rockstar groupies here for obvious reasons).
 
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 himSmile. 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
 
 
No not at all . I was just using him as an example.LOL

No problem. My realtives are and keep telling me on him and Madz and their happening jodi. I know my parents and other relatives are gaga over them especially Madz. But thats themLOL
 
Also, I could not use the ones I am gaga over as they are not as recognized but I am educating non-indians on  them like Salman, Hrithik, AkshayWink and the newer lot , Ranveer, Imran,etcWink
 
Also, I started my discussion on the interactions I had. I guess our experiences were not the same. I am glad slumdog came out because now Bolly is getting more interest amongst non-indiansSmile

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) 
 
@Eraser, I was going to reply in the other thread, but will here. We should stalk Akshay and Salman when they visit Toronto,CanadaWink and gather others so he get the same star treatment as abroadLOL

I agree. I live in the States and I do not know not one non-desi know who he is or any other Bollywood star for that matter. If the younger generation knew who he was then my professor showed us Asoka a few days ago in my class and no one knew him. They might have an idea of who he is now but not before Asoka.

Maybe SRK is a mass hysteria in other places but I do not think that is the same case with the States.
