THOUSANDS turned up at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka on Thursday for an opportunity to see one of India's most popular TV serial actresses Suhasi Dhami perform live for the first time in Fiji.
The actress, who has won the hearts of many ordinary Fijians through her role as Abha Prasad on the hit TV show Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli, is scheduled to perform at a total of eight concerts in the country.
Show organiser Dharmend Shyam said about 4000 people turned up at the event to catch a glimpse of the Indian superstar.
"There was a live band and Ms Dhami was interacting with the crowd," he said.
Along with Dhami, Bollywood comedian Johnny Lever's brother Jimmy Moses is also in the country.
"Jimmy Moses was amazing.
"The crowd was really responsive and enjoyed the show.
"There was a very positive atmosphere throughout the night."
Dhami performed in Tavua yesterday before her scheduled performance in Rakiraki today.
"She will be performing in Labasa tomorrow."
He said the tickets were selling fast and he expected the number of people attending the shows to increase by the time they reach their final show in Suva.
