Toronto goes wild for one of Bollywood's biggest stars
If you were anywhere in the vicinity of Square One last night, you likely saw (and definitely heard) thousands of screaming, ecstatic fans doing the Beatlemania/Bieber Fever thing on sidewalks, in the parking lot, and from well across the street.
No, Drake didn't stage a surprise show in Mississauga last night — and even if he had, the crowd wouldn't have been this jaw-droppingly huge.
The masses were there for Indian superstar Salman Khan; A debonair actor, artist and humanitarian who kind of strikes me as the George Clooney of Bollywood, with a Johnny Depp twist (please do correct me if I'm wrong, Indian media buffs.)
Khan was in town this week for a Sunday night stage show at FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton.

Fans camped out all around the mall just to get a glimpse of the beloved star.
And the lineup to buy something from his new line — the proceeds of which "provide education and healthcare support to the underprivileged" — was Cheesecake Factory long.
Busy as his schedule must be, Khan still took time to meet and take photos with some of the fans who showed up to see him.
