Hysterical fans greeted Salman Khan and John Abraham, when they arrived in Kuala Lumpur for the world premiere of Baabul, at the second Global Indian Film Awards.
More than 1,500 Malaysians, mostly women, stood patiently for more than three hours on December 7 waiting for the stars at the TGV cineplex, adjoining the Petronas Twin Towers, two of the world's tallest buildings.
While some of the people had passes for the film, most of them had come just to see the stars.
Salman, wearing black trousers and a black shirt, waved to the crowd, signed his name on a billboard outside the cineplex and walked inside.
John Abraham walked towards the crowd and shook hands with some fans, sending them into throes of excitement. His girlfriend Bipasha Basu, dressed in a beige gown with a plunging neckline, accompanied him.
A few older fans, mostly Indians, cheered when yesteryear star Jeetendra, wearing a long leather jacket, walked to the cineplex.
Former actress Helen, wearing a peach coloured sari, was also greeted enthusiastically by the older fans. The other guests included Arbaaz Khan, Rahul Roy, Hema Malini and Esha Deol.
