Patna: Hundreds of thousands of fans of Bollywood mega-star Shah Rukh Khan gathered outside the Bapu Sabhagar in Patna on Thursday where he enthralled the large audience with his trademark dance and songs from his hit films while also charming them with some interesting anecdotes about his personal life.

The much-billed show of Khan began at 3:30 pm though the crowd had started to gather as early as 10:00 am. Despite heavy security arrangement, things got out of hand as frustrated fans resorted to vandalism destroying properties, passing-by vehicles, and clashing with the police that had to resort to mild lathi charge to control the crowd.

Several vehicles were damaged and many people were injured who had to be transported to the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) for treatment.

Khan was in Patna to take part in a five-day celebration of Bihar organized by Hindi Daily Dainik Bhaskar. The occasion was also used to promote the latest Khan film 'Zero' romantic drama directed by Aanand L. Rai starring Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.

Responding to questions from Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kishan, Khan talked about how he got break in the Bollywood and how he wooed his now wife of 27 years Gauri Khan. He also gave the thrill of their lives to a bunch of school girls when he danced with them on the 'Chhaiya Chhaiya' tune from Dil Se and a Bhojpuri song.

As if that was not enough to send the audience into a frenzy, Khan then got the audience on its feet when he spoke lines from many of his hit films including Om Shanti Om and Don.

This is the second visit of Khan to Patna. His first one was in 2011 when he was in the state capital to promote his Don-2, a movie that tanked at the box office.

The star of films like Baazigar, Darr, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Dil to Pagal Hai and hundreds of other films praised the crowd of Patna and joked by saying Patna'ites were as 'short-tempered' as the folks of Delhi.

"I have never seen a bigger crowd that what we have here at Bapu Sabhagar," he said.

Reminding people that today was also the birthday of another famous Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, Shah Rukh sang 'Happy Birthday' in his honor wishing him many more returns of the day for his colleague and friend.
