There are people who can’t stop gushing when they meet a celebrity, clicking selfies, sharing their zen moment with people on social media; basically announcing and making sure the world knows that they met a celebrity. And there are those who can’t care less and sometimes don’t even recognise them. According to a Pakistani woman, something similar happened with her maternal uncle.
Twitter user @beckyitter claims that her uncle met Deepika Padukone in Abu Dhabi and didn’t recognise her. She further went on to say that she was shocked that he didn’t know her and, in fact, made an effort to introduce herself and making him aware of the films she had done.
In a series of tweets giving details of the event, she wrote, “Khalu met Deepika Padukone in a elevator&didn’t recognise her bec he doesn’t watch Bollywood. She was SHOCKED,introduced herself,kept trying (sic)”.
According to the tweets, the two were residing in the same hotel in Abu Dhabi and were in the elevator when Padukone realised the man didn’t recognise her. She introduced herself and then told him the names of her films. Apparently, she then asked him to come join her for a meal. The two talked about their visits and then the man left.
The authenticity of this incident cannot be verified. We can’t say if it really happened. And while it’s very humble of Padukone to introduce herself to a man who doesn’t know her despite her stardom, it’s a little difficult to buy that she was shocked to realise that.
