International pop star Justin Drew Bieber landed in Mumbai early on Wednesday amidst tight security for his 'Purpose World Tour'.
Escorted in a thick security blanket out of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport around 2 a.m., he was quickly whisked off to St. Regis Hotel in south Mumbai.
Several hundreds of mediapersons and fans had parked themselves at various points outside the Mumbai Airport for a glimpse of Bieber, but were largely disappointed.
Bieber is likely to fly in a private helicopter to the D.Y. Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai for his concert scheduled this afternoon.
The concert venue, reported to be fully sold out with over 45,000 tickets, will open at 3 PM and Bieber is expected to give his performance at 8 PM.
The tour is to promote his fourth album, the critically-acclaimed "Purpose", in which he has experimented with more adventurous electronic sounds.
