So that's why I'm in my Indian attire, Tiger being the national animal of India.” The superstar went on to express his overwhelming feelings about walking the carpet for the first time. He shared, “I feel great, surreal, ecstatic. You know, I've always been seeing the carpet on TV, but guess what? I walked that carpet. I'm walking the carpet. It feels amazing.”
