On Wednesday night, 11 of the approximately 800 fans who flocked to superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s mansion in Bandra (west) to wish him a happy birthday misplaced their phones amid the commotion.
Around 800 people, according to the Bandra police, gathered outside Mannat residence near Bandstand to see Khan. Around five o’clock in the afternoon, Khan emerged from his bungalow’s window and waved to his followers.
A police official reported that the celebrations came to a peaceful conclusion. More than 40 police officers and officers from the Bandra police station were kept on bandobast duty.
The burglars may have stolen the phones around this time, said the police.
