Actor Shah Rukh Khan actually interrupted a press conference to meet this prince.
Shah Rukh Khan is huge. He’s the face of Bollywood, and has amassed an incredible social media following of more than 60 million people.
So it was no wonder that when he came to Dubai to promote his upcoming film Raees, he was absolutely mobbed.
As part of the movie’s promotional circuit, Khan paid a visit to the Arabian Centre in Al Khawaneej, where he was met by thousands of fans flooding the mall’s Night Court and lining the balconies.
We’re not joking when we say it was huge…

Arabian Centre wasn’t the only public appearance that Khan made either.
Bollywood Parks at Dubai Parks & Resorts played host to the superstar earlier in the day, where the actor got to ride the Ra.One Unleashed – a ride based on one of Khan’s previous films.

While at the recently opened theme park, Khan even interrupted a press conference to greet HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, son of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai and Vice President of the UAE.
“Please, excuse me for a few minutes as I have to meet His Royal Highness. We will continue this after,” Khan told the crowd, according to the Khaleej Times.
Wondering what all the fuss is about?

The last time SRK was in Dubai…
The Bollywood legend – who has a house in Dubai – starred in an advert for the Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing, where he invited viewers to “come with me” as his guest around the city.
