When Ushma met Hrithik

Source: ET, London

Hundreds of screaming fans surrounded a radio station to get a glimpse of their favourite Bollywood idol.

Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai and Lara Dutta were greeted by hundreds of adoring fans as they arrived to give live interviews at Southall's Sunrise Radio, in Dominion Road on Thursday morning.

One fan, Dimple Batta, 17, of St Peters Road, Southall, had her dream come true when she got to meet her favourite Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan.

She told the Times: "I'm a really big fan. I've got a picture of him on my screen saver at home. I just love him, he is such a great dancer."

Dimple was introduced to Hrithik and was over the moon when he asked the Times to take a picture of them together as a keepsake.

The Bollywood stars flew into London ahead of their 40-date world tour which included a whistle-stop visit to the UK.

They were immediately whisked away for media interviews before beginning rehearsals for their Breathless show.

Times reporter Ushma Mistry managed to steal a quick five minutes with Hrithik Roshan to welcome him to the borough.

He said: "I haven't really had the chance to see Southall but I saw a lot of it on the way from the airport."

The Bollywood star, who is referred to as India's answer to Brad Pitt, was overwhelmed by the amount of screaming fans who had waited for hours to meet him and was familiar with Southall's Asian popularity.

He added: "It's great. I love my fans.

"I wish I could give them all a hug but I can't."
