Not only this but the song became a chartbuster in 2011.

After spotting the Akon team in the city, many social media users demanded a Chammak Challo reunion today. Some social media users feel that Akon and Shah Rukh Khan are likely to exchange warm wishes with each other this evening.


A few social media users also remarked that only the Ambani family has the power to bring global sensations to India. “Anant and Radhika will get married in July. All the occasions being held from March 1 - March 3 are only pre-wedding ceremonies. Gosh! Digest the fact!” wrote an Instagrammer.

While numerous celebrities are present in the city, a few of them have exited the celebrations owing to prior work commitments. Shraddha Kapoor, her boyfriend Rahul Mody, cricketer Suryakumar Yadav, and actor Ajay Devgn are among those who left Jamnagar this morning.

Indian superstars Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, and Katrina Kaif are present for today and tomorrow.
