"Reaching over 149,000 accounts, delivering over 609,000 responses, adding 12pc more fans in a day, receiving tweets from celebs and some international followers as well, @axnindia established quite a resounding impression amongst the SPN fan-base," he added.
The event witnessed a lot of interactive activities and games where the fans, mostly girls, participated in getting tattoos done, singing the Supernatural anthem and even imitating the characters.
A premiere of the first episode was also organised for the fans.
"I love Dean of Supernatural because he is such a hunk... just look at him and you know!" gushed an elated Oyendrila who is an avid fan and never misses a single episode of the show.
