For the post festival celebrations of Renaissance – the annual cultural fest of Kirori Mal College, the star cast of Main Tera Hero visited the college for promotions. The much awaited event saw a turnover of around 3500 fans of Varun Dhawan and Ileana D’Cruz. The stars who were expected to arrive at noon, reached the college premises by 1:30 pm. But the wait seemed to prove worthwhile for the crowd by Varun’s dance performance right after his entry. He then asked the crowd to chant the name of his co-star from the film to welcome her on stage, and the fans willingly obliged.
Varun Dhawan then told his fans about his movie and his character ‘Seenu’. Seenu’s character, as defined by the actor himself is chichora and nautanki. He also delivered a few famous dialogues from his movie. “Jab main sheher chorh ke gya tha na? Mujhe poora sheher chorhne aaya tha.” On the audience’s demand, both the actors then danced on their song, ‘Palat’.
Dhawan also mimicked the famous wrestling champion, The Rock. The organizers had chosen five lucky girls from the campus to meet Varun Dhawan on stage. The stars also performed on ‘Besharmi ki Height‘, another number from Main Tera Hero. Bharat Jain, who has hosted most of the star events in Delhi University, hosted this show too. Bharat, on Varun’s request chose five boys from the standing audience to come up on stage and show their ‘besharmi ki height‘ in front of Ileana. Ileana, who received many ‘I love you’ confessions in various styles, told DU Beat, “It was crazy to see fans showering their love on us. Delhi is insane.”
Varun then sang the famous Punjabi rap of ‘High Heels’, which he’d also sung at Shri Ram College of Commerce last year, for promotions of ‘Student Of The Year’.
Towards the end, he thanked the college principal, Mr. S.P Gupta by calling him up on stage. He also thanked the Union members for the organizing the event. Saurabh Prabhakar, the event head and Marketing Consultant for Main Tera Hero remarked, “The visit to Kirori Mal College was the best decision. The film and Varun, both have a huge youth connect and what better platform than Delhi University to promote a film.”
Varun was overwhelmed by the response in the University and said that he is ready to do anything for his fans. The Main Tera Hero team was in the campus for almost 45 minutes. Ileana and Varun ended their session by clicking a selfie with all the fans.
Jashvender Chauhan, President of Kirori Mal Students’ Union, who was delighted by the student turnout for the event said, “After Gunday promotions and the main cultural fest Renaissance, this event also proved to be a grand success. Renaissance’14 came to a glorious ending. Our college will remember this year as the most memorable year of events. It was our pleasure to host their promotion today.”
Stay tuned for DU Beat’s exclusive interview with these two stars!
