Thursday (the day before Ready released) was an especially hectic day for Salman Khan. He made appearances at all the special screenings held for Ready.
- First up, an NGO special screening at INOX, Nariman Point where he made an appearance during the interval. As expected, everyone wanted a piece of him. He quickly greeted the audience and headed out for the next screening.
- Ready was playing at the G7 multiplex, Bandra.
- From G7, he made his way to Cinemax, Versova, where I was watching the film. It was showing in two different screens. Both auditoriums had underprivileged children watching the movie. They received gifts from Parle. When Salman came to see them in the interval, the excitement was unparalleled. There was no way he could speak. He greeted everyone, requested everyone to enjoy the film and left.
- 4 screenings down, his next stop was a show of Ready at PVR, Juhu. The scene was no different there. But some celebrities were also attending.
Spotted: Madhur Bhandarkar, Sharad Saxena, Shalini S Sahuta, Eva Grover, Anand Rai (director) and Mudasir Ali (Sufi singer), Rajat Rawail (producer) and Shahid Hassan (casting director).
After the various special screenings, Salman was going to rock a live concert at Tulip Star but the sudden downpour lead to cancellation. Clearly, the weather wasn’t ‘ready’ for the concert.
