Rohit Shankar Thakur, a die-hard fan of Salman from Jabalpur, ran away from home with just a school bag containing two pairs of clothes to see his hero. He came to Mumbai by train but was stranded in the big city. He slept on footpaths at Bandstand near Salman"s apartment with the hope of having a glimpse of the actor but in vain.
Luckily, an unknown man took him to Bandra police station. The police said that the boy refused to eat food, insisting that all he wanted was to meet Salman. They added that they have informed his parents in Jabalpur about their son.
Rohit said that he has watched lots of Salman's films and wants to meet him in real life. He added that that the actor has a big heart, who loves the poor. He is willing to go back home once he meets him. However, he lamented that the watchman denied permission to enter Salman's apartment.
