Meet SRK’s Craziest Fan – Vishal Singh
Meet SRK’s Craziest Fan – Vishal Singh:
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has a legion of fans all over the world, but not many will be able to beat Vishal Singh’s obsession with the star.
Vishal Singh sits in his living room with his wife Ruchi Singh, daughter Simran and son Aryan at their Lucknow house. Singh is a fan of the Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan and has more than 22,000 pictures of the star in his possession. Singh’s house, which he calls “Shahrukh palace,” and even his workplace, are covered with posters featuring the actor. Singh even changed his name to Vishahrukh Khan as a display of his love for the actor.
Ruchi Singh, wife of Vishal Singh, speaks on a phone in their bedroom. The 38-year-old businessman has plastered every square inch of his house with Khan’s pictures and spent his honeymoon waiting outside the actor’s house in Mumbai, hoping to catch a glimpse of his idol.
Simran and Aryan, children of Vishal Singh, sits in a room in “Shahrukh palace”, Lucknow. Singh’s house is a shrine to Khan. There are cutouts of Khan on the ceiling, the television and even on cushions.
Simran and Aryan, children of Vishal Singh, relax in their bedroom. Singh has even changed his name to Vishahrukh Khan. “No one can be like Shah Rukh Khan, but I wanted my name to have his name. My children are named Simran and Aryan, which is his son’s name,” he said. Simran is the female lead in one of Khan’s biggest movies.
A photograph of Vishal Singh and his family sits on a table in front of a wall filled with posters of Shah Rukh Khan. His family was initially less than impressed with his adoration of the star, Singh said. “My parents were very worried about me, but now they know that my love for Shah Rukh will never end,” he added.
Vishal Singh reads a book about bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan while sitting in his living room in Lucknow. Khan has met his fan several times, including on Singh’s honeymoon, when Singh drove more than 1,300 km with his wife to Mumbai. Khan has not returned the favour as yet, even though he’s promised to visit Singh’s home.
If you thought it’s some DVD store, you are wrong! Vishal Singh walks out to the terrace of his house in Lucknow.
