The host of the 15th Annual International Indian Film Academy's Weekend & Awards arrived at Tampa International Airport on Monday to dozens of fans screaming his name.
Shahid Kapoor said he was a bit tired after the more than 20 hour flight, but he was happy to see so many of his fans.
"It's always wonderful to see the kind of support we have," Kapoor said.
Fans also greeted actor and producer Vivek Anand Oberoi a few hours later on the same green carpet Kapoor graced earlier.
Oberoi pointed to the crowd and said, "This is what I've been looking forward to."
Both men are just two of dozens of Indian stars expected throughout the week.
This is the first time the IIFA awards have been hosted in the United States.
