Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber’s arrival was scheduled last night in India when actor Akshay Kumar too was spotted there. Interestingly, Akshay was mistaken as Justin Bieber by fans.

Indian Beliebers were already excited for the arrival of singing sensation Justin Bieber in India. His Indian fans were not only going gaga to tap their toes on the Canadian singer Bieber’s tune but to see him live too. 

Justin fans just went crazy and gathered near Akshay’s car just to have alook of Justin. But to their surprise, it was Akshay, who came out the car and they went even mad to see Khiladi Kumar, Akshay at the airport.


Notably, Akshay was returning after having a meeting with prime minister Narendra Modi last night. 

Akshay even posted an image on social networking site Twitter and captioned the picture as , ‘’Met PM Narendra Modi and got the opportunity to tell him about my upcoming ‘Toilet-Ek Prem Katha.’’

Grammy Award winning Canadian singing sensation Justin Bieber arrived here early on Wednesday amidst tight security for his maiden concert in India, looking relaxed and geared up to regale Indian 'Beliebers' as part of his Purpose World Tour.

Fans had been waiting with bated breath for his arrival at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport. 

Bieber came out escorted in a thick security blanket, led by Salman Khan's bodyguard Shera at 2 a.m.

He came in a chartered flight along with his crew sporting a pink pullover and black shorts. He was rushed out of the airport, and was quickly whisked off to St Regis Hotel in south Mumbai amidst Z-plus security.

The several hundreds of mediapersons and fans, who had parked themselves at various points outside the Mumbai Airport for a glimpse of Bieber, were largely disappointed. 

It was earlier speculated that Bieber would land in India on May 8. Later the singer himself piqued the curiosity with a tweet.

"Dubai is incredible... India you are next. @Amit_Bhatia99 u ready? Purpose Tour Stadiums," Bieber wrote on early Tuesday.

Bieber came to the fore around 2008, promoted by Usher. "Baby" became his claim to fame in 2010 and he garnered a huge fan, which continued to grow with songs like "Where are u now", "Boyfriend", "Love yourself" and "As long as you love me".
