Madness for Shashank Vyas in Indonesia
Shashank Vyas is enjoying stardom in Indonesia. He was recently mobbed at the airport and wherever he went. His Indonesian female fans were drooling over his look and style. He says, "I enjoy visiting Indonesia every time. This was my third visit. I also bumped into Nakul Mehta and Zain Imam. It felt much every time I visit Indonesia I am amazed to see the excitement amongst the fans there. They went crazy for a selfie and a handshake. Mingling and spending time with them is a feeling that cannot be described in words. An artist works for this kind of appreciation from the audience. I am looking forward to my next visit to Indonesia already."
