of steps from someone you adore.
For instance, in 2011 one of the fans of Shahrukh Khan was in Berlin. She loved and knew
all films with his participation and she was aware that 61th Berlin Film Festival will be remarkable
for Indian films lovers because of the participation of Shahrukh Khan.
She also knew that Germans and
Berliners in particular were not fans of that great actor. That was why she did not hurry to buy tickets.
But she was surprised to find out that all tickets were sold out. One thing she missed...
transportation in Europe is very much available and a lot of fans of Shahrukh Khan rushed to Berlin
and participated in that battle for tickets, which can be online and offline.
Why we tell you the story... just to be aware that the Berlin Film Festival is very popular. And if you plan to see
something or someone you really would love to see with the whole heart, just take care about the things ahead.
Ok, in 2012 Shahrukh Khan was again in town but she could not come to Berlin in February that year.
The Berlinale can give you a feeling of global art and culture. Being here and enjoying its cosmopolitan character
with art, glamor, commerce and other little things added will make you a bit thoughtful and a bit happy.
