Delhi-6

The carpet was set, the barricades grounded, and the security tight. But nothing deterred girls to hoot with the highest tempo to shake hands, express their love and catch a glimpse of their bodyguard-clouded-star Abhishek Bachchan at the red-carpet premiere of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Delhi-6’ releasing Friday. Women from all age groups – married, college going and school going girls – filled the atmosphere with an electrifying energy to meet Abhsihek at PVR Priya here Thursday night.
‘Abhishek I love you’, ‘Abhishek marry me’, ‘Abhishek, you are the best’ were a few of the slogans the fair-sex aficionados couldn’t stop shouting when the whole star cast of ‘Delhi-6’ arrived at the event. ‘I have been here since the last three hours and I am not leaving the place until I shake hands with Abhishek,’ said Richa Yadav, a Class 12 student from DPS, Mathura Road, who finally managed to capture pictures of her star from the least distance across the barricade. Shouted a gang of eight girls from Delhi University: ‘Abhishek, you have to pick one from us. We won’t let you go.’ The actor himself was in a fix at the response. ‘It’s mind blowing. It’s amazing. I love Delhi and the turn out of the people here is fantastic. I hope it remains the same in theatres as well,’ said Abhishek, clad in a jet-black three-piece suit.
Written and directed by Mehra, the UTV produced film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Prem Chopra, Waheeda Rehman and Atul Kulkarni – who were also present at the do. Also present at the event were a bevy of Bollywood stars including, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor and movie’s producer Ronnie Screwala.
