While famous celebrities may be used to constant paparazzi and screaming fans in every scenario, some encounters with these fans manage to stand out.
Bollywood veteran actor Anupam Kher took to his Instagram and Twitter to share one such instance which stood out from others.
A video posted on his IGTV shows his encounter with a fan from Senegal, who is super excited to see him - and can be heard saying 'oh my god, oh my god' over in excitement.
In the video, Kher asks her name, which she replies to saying its 'Ayesha,' and says that she is a fan of his. She also adds how she can't believe this is really happening.
Shot in Bellevue Hospital in New York, Ayesha is speaking fluent Hindi, and on being questioned by Kher she says that she learnt it by just watching Bollywood movies.
When Kher asks her if she remembers any movie of his, she says that she loved ChaalBaaz a 1989 movie starring Anupam Kher, Sridevi, and Sunny Deol among others.
The fan can also be seen hyperventilating and says "I'm so nervous" and "I'm a huge fan," and says that "There is no film of yours which I haven't seen." She says that her sister is in the hospital and she's going to visit her and as she's walking away she adds "This is the best day of my life."
Sharing the video on his IGTV and also on Twitter, Kher captioned it.

Netizens also lauded this moment.
Let's take a moment and appreciate her command in the language that is totally alien to her. That too by just watching Hindi movies. Just wow. ♥️🙏— Doctor Outsider (@Quirky_Seelie) November 25, 2019
