Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was given a rapturous reception in Berlin as he made his debut at the Berlin Film Festival to attend the German premiere of his latest blockbuster Om Shanti Om .

A capacity crowd of over 500, predominantly European film fans, danced in ecstasy, clapping and waving their hands as some chartbusters from the film were played in one of the main screening centres of the ongoing 58th Berlinale.




As SRK appeared on the stage, the audience gave him a standing ovation lasting several minutes, amidst loud cheers and shouts of "Shah Rukh".

The King Khan told the audience that he was quite moved by their reception and thanked them for their interest in his films and in the Indian cinema as a whole.

The Indian superstar also thanked the Berlin Film Festival and its director Dieter Kosslick for enabling the German premiere of his film 'Om Shanti Om' at the Berlinale and for showing a new interest in the mainstream Indian cinema.

"By featuring 'Om Shanti Om' as well as earlier Hindi productions like Don , Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Main Hoon Na in the past years, the Berlin Film Festival helped the mainstream Indian cinema to achieve a major breakthrough in Europe," SRK said.

SRK was, ostensibly, touched by the spontaneous and emotional welcome given to him by the German fans.

Film experts and the entire German media, from the sensational Boulevard tabloid Bild to the conservative broadsheet Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, described it as unprecedented that tickets for 'Om Shanti Om' were sold out in less than seven minutes.

A surprised SRK quipped, "I thought they (the audiences) must have mistaken the movie title!"

Indeed, the tickets were completely sold out after only seven minutes. According to one employee at the Berlinale ticket office, there had been at least 20,000 queries for tickets through the Internet.
