Europe’s first purpose-built boutique Asian shopping centre – East Shopping Centre – welcomed Bollywood royalty through its doors on Monday when Anil Kapoor arrived for a meet and greet.

Lucky fans had the opportunity to meet and snap selfies with one of Bollywood’s biggest international superstars.

“Welcoming a truly global star to our centre and to the local neighbourhood to interact with so many fans has been fantastic.

“Anil Kapoor is an iconic figure not only in Indian cinema, but in Hollywood as well so we’ve had fans queuing up here since early morning to catch a glimpse.”

He continued: “Anil Kapoor is a true superstar and it was a pleasure to meet him. He made a huge effort to meet as many fans as possible, many of whom had been waiting to meet the film legend for several hours. We hope to bring many more big names to East Shopping Centre in the near future.”

Anil Kapoor is reprising his lead role of anti-terrorism agent, Jai Singh Rathod, which was inspired by Kiefer Sutherland's iconic tortured hero Jack Bauer. His adaptation of the TV series ‘24’ is as thrilling and gritty as the original, with Season Two seeing Rathod facing terrorists who have threatened to release a deadly virus across India.

Of his promotional visit to East Shopping Centre, Anil Kapoor tweeted of his visit: “#EastShoppingCentre! #24IndiaS2 is here with the madness… Always great to see so many happy faces.”

Kapoor has successfully crossed over to Hollywood, starring in major blockbusters like the Oscar-winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’, with Tom Cruise, as well as the original ‘24’ series with Kiefer Sutherland.
