One fan, Ahmed, has been watching Efron on the set of the “Baywatch” reboot. Being a superfan, he went all out trying to get a Snapchat of the actor when he was already leaving. Unfortunately, Ahmed’s phone slipped from his hands, fell on the ground and was smashed.
But that was not where the story ends. In a series of Instagram posts by Ahmed, first spotted by Perez Hilton, he went on to say that Efrom approached him, allowed him to take video and photos of him with his smashed phone. But the most exciting part was that Efron promised to buy him a new phone and the actor stayed true to his promise.
Efron took on his Instagram account and wrote, “This is what I love about my fans – when they get very enthusiastic and eager, but @dopekid_23 actually smashed his phone while chasing me for a snapchat – that’s dedication so I’ma hook you up with a brand new phone my brother! To all my fans out there holdin it down – love and respect. And be careful with your phones.”
Ahmed cannot contain his excitement not just because of the new phone but more importantly he was grateful for the attention and mutual respect that his idol gave him. “Zac Efron went out of his way to buy me a brand new phone and allowed me to even walk on the set of his new film, when you didn’t have to. You acknowledge your fans, Brother you have a heart, there is definitely a justification as to why you are who you are,” Ahmed posted on Instagram.
