When 'Kala chashma' hogged limelight in New Zealand

Bollywood songs have a strong fan base across the globe and one got to view this madness when "Baar Baar Dekho" actor Sidharth Malhotra arrived at the Christchurch airport. Much to his surprise, he was welcomed by children who performed to his popular Bollywood tracks like "Kar gayi chull" and "Kala chashma".

It didn't take long for the actor to join the children, dressed in yellow glittery outfits, and flaunt his dance moves.

"I was very ecstatic to see the kids perform to my songs... with such a warm welcome," the actor, who is once again in New Zealand to unwind from his hectic schedule, told IANS.

Former Black Cap cricketers Stephen Fleming and Brendon McCullum also welcomed the actor at the airport.

"It feels great to be back to this beautiful country. The beginning of my trip has been fantastic. I received such a warm welcome from Stephen and Brendon at the airport. I can't wait to further explore New Zealand and have an amazing holiday," said the actor, who also had a few selfie moments with his fans.

Sidharth, who is the brand ambassador of Tourism New Zealand, also expressed how proud he is to promote the country that is known for its scenic beauty, hospitality and adventure.

The "Student of the Year" star also "bumped into" the country's Prime Minister John Key at Auckland airport.

"Guess who I bumped into at the Auckland Airport? Prime minister John Key. Gracious and warm as always," Sidharth captioned the image.

On the work front, the 31-year-old actor will next be seen sharing screen space with actress Jacqueline Fernandez in a yet untitled film.
