Checked-In, In Style:
Justin Bieber checked-in at Mumbai's Kalina airport at 1:30 am on Wednesday with Shera helping him navigate the VIP lounge at the airport. Dressed in signature style, Bieber was spotted in a pink hoodie and shorts, holding a bouquet of flowers at the private terminal. Almost immediately, Bieber was welcomed by a cheering crowd waiting outside for a glimpse of the pop sensation. He was driven to St Regis in Lower Parel, in his favourite vehicle, a Rolls Royce, where a customised suite awaited his arrival. Bieber's 100-plus member entourage were stationed in two hotels with the floors occupied by them being off-limits for other guests. Dubai was his last stop before Mumbai.
City Tour? Yes. But First, Coffee:
Fans and followers were excited beyond limits to have Bieber in India and made every effort to spot the singer in Mumbai - this lead to Bieber being photographed picking take-out coffee from what looks like a Starbucks outlet in Vashi. This time, the singer was spotted in a yellow tee and shorts.

Sometime in between, Bieber was also spotted being driven around on the streets of Mumbai. He was undeterred by the amount of attention Mumbai had in store for him and enjoyed every bit of it. Unexpected as it is, considering his celeb-status, his car windows were open and he continued to wave at fans on the streets and those who followed.

The Concert. Finally.
Justin Bieber was spotted on stage a little later than 8 pm, as was scheduled. Moments after he was choppered to Mumbai's DY Patil Stadium, he kick-started his debut gig in India delving into hit tracks like Where Are You Now and Get Used To It. Mark My Words is the first song he performed while drew the curtain with Sorry - in between, there were fireworks, a guitar rendition of Dark Waters, and a crowd-pleasing performance to Baby, the song responsible for all the Bieber-Fever.
The Justin Bieber concert was hosted by Harry Potter actress Elarica Johnson. The concert began at 4 pm and the climactic gig was preceded by opening acts by Sartek, Zaeden and Alan Walker. The 45,000-strong crowd comprised mostly teenaged 'Beliebers' with Bollywood celebrities like Sridevi, Alia Bhatt, Raveena Tandon, Malaika Arora, Sonali Bendre, Arjun Rampal also being in the audience.
