"Those photos of Sheeran partying with the B'wood elite is what I imagine a hostage would look like when told to smile for the camera."

Like many international celebrities who have visited India, Ed Sheeran too was subject to a party by Bolllywood.

On Saturday, Ed attended a party thrown by Bollywood filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan. The party saw many from Bollywood in attendance including Malaika Arora, Sushant Singh Rajput, Kriti Sanon, Bhumi Pednekar, Aftab Shivdasani, Patralekhaa and Neha Dhupia.

The celebrities, who were clearly having their fan moments, flooded social media with their pictures.

However, as Twitterati pointed out, in nearly every picture, Ed looks like he ‘crying out for help’. There were selfies with a ton of Bollywood celebrities, who, in all likelihood, he doesn’t know or isn’t going to meet again.

Or as one Twitter user put it, “Those photos of Sheeran partying with the B'wood elite is what I imagine a hostage would look like when told to smile for the camera.”

This was Ed's second live concert in India in two years, and the singer sang over 15 songs, including the hit 'Shape of You', during his 90-minute concert.

The announcement of his India visit was made earlier this year, and the tickets to the Mumbai concert were sold out in just 48 minutes.

Speaking about how was his India experience, he said, "I had to come back to India, I had to. Last time when I performed here, I loved it. People are so welcoming here, and warm, I had to come back to these people over here. It's lovely to be back here."

And while the singing sensation is yet to post any photographs from the party thrown for him, he told IANS in a recorded interview that he finds Bollywood "bright and colourful" and that a "film with Shah Rukh Khan would be quite cool".

Wonder what Twitterati will make of it.
