The Slam! Tour ended at London's O2 Arena on Sunday (October 5) evening and during a press conference, SRK said, "London has always been the pioneer in terms of the Diaspora taking our films to the level that they have achieved. We are stars because of all the people here in London and Britain who have appreciated and backed our films." (via Times of India)

"The kind of Diaspora mix that you get here is perhaps the most varied and big in numbers. Personally, this is my favourite city for many, many reasons," he added.

Describing the Slam! Tour experience, Happy New Year director Farah Khan said: "The tour has been amazing. I think we slammed every city and I think we saved the best for last."
