Almost like a Christmas wish, a Brampton man recently got his wish to get a photo with famous actor and comedian Kevin Hart.
When local resident and owner of My Bollywood Body fitness centre Sunny Rabbanim heard that Hart and other A-list celebrities would be in Brampton to work on a new movie, he purchased a billboard ad near the Bramalea GO Station to ask Hart for a selfie.
The message on the large billboard read, “Yo Kevin, I heard you’re in Toronto. I’m a big fan. Can I take a selfie?”
Rabbanim’s message soon paid off, and he got a direct message from Hart on Instagram saying that he would oblige.
Their wholesome interaction was later posted to his MyBollywoodBody Instagram page.

“I think your gestures were unreal, and as a person, I couldn’t let that go unnoticed,” said Kevin Hart, who said he had to make it a priority to meet Rabbanim and thank him.
Rabbanim reportedly paid $3,000 for the billboard, and said it was worth it after Hart called the stunt “dope as hell.”
The movie Hart’s working on, titled “The Man from Toronto”, also features Woody Harrelson and The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco.
Anne Marie Aikins, spokesperson for Metrolinx, posted photos of Brampton GO station with signs that said “Yorktown.”
“No, we aren’t renaming Brampton GO Station. It’s a movie shoot,” she said in a tweet.

Hart has also posted several photos of himself and other cast members in various locations throughout Toronto.
