Bollywood's biggest star, Shahrukh Khan, who is currently touring Australia and New Zealand with his troupe of "Temptation Reloaded" made a historical comeback to Sydney after nine long years, reports Indian Express on Oct. 7.
Along with co-stars Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee and Jacqueline Fernandes, the 47-year-old performed live for fans at Allphones Arena on Oct. 7, in Sydney, Australia. This performance of "Temptation Reloaded" was a part of Parramatta's Parramasala Festival 2013.
Although the show was relaunched after 2004, anticipation ran high. "We have already recorded over 10,000 sold tickets and hopefully by evening it will touch over 12,000 mark," said a spokesperson of "Temptation Reloaded."
Touted as Bollywood's Brad Pitt, Khan made an appearance on the local ABC channel and talked in length about the Bollywood film industry.
"Somewhere down the line the fantasy and escapism we offer in our cinema is somewhat real like getting a job or buying a car or settling down with a happy family. It's not like we go and blow up a meteor with the earth. We don't have superheroes as yet. Our heroes are superheroes who fight against the system. It's deep rooted of what the society is going through," he said.
An excited Khan tweeted his gratitude to his fans. He said, "Sydney thanx for the madness. U were all so gracious...will have to take a place in Harris Park. Such beauty!!"
The team is now off to Perth, where they will be performing on Oct. 9.
