Shah Rukh Khan posted on his social media page as he shared the video with his fans, saying, “Every experience becomes an unforgettable memory in Dubai. Explore the city with me! #DubaiPresents @visit.dubai #visitdubai.”
Shah Rukh is the face of several Dubai Tourism campaigns. In March, he along with Dubai Tourism rolled out a promotional short film showcasing the emirate as a must-visit city.
The three-minutes, four-second video opens with Khan busy filming in Dubai when he gets interrupted by a call from his doting daughter Suhana who nudges him to have some fun in the emirate. She urges him to step out of his work mode and explore the glitzy city and what it has to offer.
The next few scenes shows the iconic actor soaking in the sights across Dubai, taking selfies with his adoring fans in the city. He is also seen dancing on Sheikh Zayed Road, overlooking Dubai’s new Museum of the Future. Wide shots of Atlantis The Palm, where he filmed ‘Happy New Year’ are also seen in the short film.
Other tourist sites that Khan is seen visting in the video include a beach overlooking Burj Al Arab, the Bastakiya neighbourhood, Al Seef, Downtown Dubai and some of the city’s iconic shopping malls. The video also features shots of Ain Dubai and the city’s famous skyline, with Khan busting out signature dance moves from his Bollywood films.
Shah Rukh Khan was the first Indian celebrity to be given the UAE golden visa. Khan was even named brand ambassador of Dubai in 2016.
