Her leg was in a cast, yet she stood for close to an hour on crutches, ignoring the pain, waiting in anticipation.
What made Shriya Chettiar, 14, endure this experience? It could only be love. Love of the Irish-British boyband The Wanted who touched down at Changi Airport’s Terminal 2 yesterday afternoon.
As other fans around her screamed, Shriya's feat of endurance paid off when band member Siva Kaneswaran spotted her among the throng and bent down to sign her cast. She then proceeded to do the only thing she could at that instant - burst into tears of joy.
The Wanted - made up of Max George, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness and Kaneswaran - are in town for their first full concert here on Sunday, at Max Pavilion.
