Fan Turns His Home into Altar for Bollywood Star

Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most popular actors in the world, but no one’s a bigger fan of the Bollywood actor than Vishal Singh, a man who has turned his home into an altar to the movie star.

The 38-year-old businessman who runs a homeopathic medicine business in Lucknow, India says there’s nothing he wouldn’t do to make Shah Rukh Kahn happy. So far he’s covered every surface in his house and even his car with photos of the Bollywood icon, changed his name to Vishahrukh Khan, and even spent his honeymoon in front of the actor’s mansion in Mumbai, hoping to catch a glimpse of his idol. Although he says no one cam be like Shah Rukh, he wanted to bear his name and even gave his children names related to the Indian actor. His son is named like Kahn’s child, Aryan, and his daughter Simran, is named after one of the female leads in one of the actor’s biggest movies, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.

Vishal admits his family didn’t exactly approve of his obsession with Shah Rukh Khan, but says his parents have come to accept it and know his love for the Bollywood superstar will never die. His wife Ruchi even agreed to spend their honeymoon in Mumbai, so her husband could hang around Kahn’s mansion hoping to see him. The die-hard fan has actually met the actor a number of times, and says Shah Rukh Kahn promised to visit Singh’s house. To convince him to keep true to his promise, the businessman says he isn’t going to open his new homeopathic medicine store until Kahn comes to cut the ribbon.
