"Last year I invited my fans around the world to Be My Guest while giving them a glimpse into my Dubai, as part of this exciting partnership with Dubai Tourism. This year, along with one of Bollywood's most recognised directors, Kabir Khan, we are taking that partnership further to exploring new places and attractions but with the signature essence of Dubai that truly makes it a place where every visitor can feel like they belong to even greater heights," said Shah Rukh Khan, who loves the "amazing city".

Conceptualised with the aim to strengthen the connection and cultural links between Dubai and the subcontinent, the video underlines the importance of audiences from the subcontinent and the vast diaspora as the top source markets for inbound and repeat visitation to the emirate.

Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai's Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said, "There is no one quite like him (Shah Rukh Khan) - with his charisma, global appeal, and most importantly because he truly considers Dubai to be his second home and shares so many similarities with what Dubai stands for. We are also very pleased to work with Kabir Khan for the first time, as he has brought to life Dubai's extensive tourism proposition, while weaving in Shah Rukh's unique relationship with the city."
