    How to meet Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in Dubai
    The Bollywood stars will be in the UAE to promote their latest films ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’

    Bindu Rai, Deputy tabloid! Editor

    This summer promises to be a scorcher for UAE fans of Shah Rukh Khan, as the actor is scheduled to fly into the country for a two-day promotional blitzkrieg for his film Jab Harry Met Sejal.

    The actor will be in Dubai on July 29 and 30, with a scheduled stopover in Abu Dhabi to meet fans at a mall event. Joining Khan on his UAE adventure will be co-star Anushka Sharma and film director Imtiaz Ali.

    Speaking to Gulf News tabloid!, Nelson D’Souza, Head of Operations, Mena, Yash Raj Films, said: “Shah Rukh Khan commands one of the biggest fan followings for in Bollywood, so we planned a two-day event around him, with a brief stopover in Abu Dhabi as well.”

    The stars will be staying at the Palazzo Versace during their visit, with a fan opportunity to site Khan and Sharma as they visit Vox Cinemas, Deira City Centre at 2pm on July 29. While the scheduled press event will be a closed doors affair, a media red carpet will allow fans to interact with the duo and Ali.

    Those in the capital can make their way over to Dalma Mall around 6pm on the same day, where Khan, Sharma and Ali will also interact with fans at Cine Royal.

    And just went you thought the day’s agenda couldn’t get any busier, the trio will probably schedule in a quick costume change before heading over to Dubai’s Cavalli Club for a midnight rendezvous with party revellers.

    The second day of their promotional tour will see Khan and Sharma conduct media interviews and meet winners of the various Jab Harry Met Sejal competitions.

    Several competitions, including one run by Vox Cinemas on its digital platform, will allow fans the opportunity to meet Khan and Sharma.

    D’Souza revealed this film is expected to be one of Khan’s biggest releases in recent times, saying: “Shah Rukh is the only Khan [in Bollywood] whose films release across the Middle East, including Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and even Palestine.

    “In the UAE and GCC, Jab Harry Met Sejal will release across 105 locations – that’s nearly 500 screens. Khan’s Raees had a smaller release in comparison, across only 102 locations.”

    Produced by Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, the romcom revolves around Harry and Sejal’s journey across Europe, where the ‘search for the latter’s engagement ring makes Harry understand love and relationships better’, it says.

    The movie releases on August 3 across UAE cinemas.

    It was better late than never for the thousands of screaming fans who got a chance to rub shoulders with their beloved Bollywood idol, Shah Rukh Khan, in Dubai on Saturday at the Vox Cinemas at the City Centre Deira.

    Khan turned up at least three hours late for a fan interaction as a part of promoting his new film Jab Harry Met Sejal, a romantic comedy, which releases in the UAE on August 3. But all was forgotten as Khan, 52, literally danced his way into their hearts by shaking a leg to the hit number, Beech Beech Mein, from his new film.

    At 4.17pm, Khan who was scheduled to make an appearance in front of the cinemas at 1pm, also patiently took selfies and shook hands with his fans who were pushing against the barricades without a thought to their safety. The charming superstar’s advice?

    “For children, please arrange bottles of water — all the kids and grown-ups, please have water before you leave... Always be happy and healthy,” said Khan, blowing kisses to his legion of followers.

    The sight that greeted Khan and Sharma was pure pandemonium as sweaty fans of all ages and nationalities pushed against the barricades and screeched his name to gain his attention. A pair of German fans said they’d camped at the mall from 10am. Another fan, from Pakistan, even left his job interview with a telecommunication company to meet his idol.

    Meanwhile, the press conference after the fan interaction was a controlled affair in a pre-determined question-and-answer format that required approval before it made it to the actors, unwittingly reducing it to a smarmy fan-boy exercise led by vanilla questions.

    Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Jab Harry Met Sejal is about a couple who discover love as they travel through six countries in Europe in search of a lost ring.

    “I don’t want to give away too much. But the line that says ‘what you seek is seeking you’ tells you that there’s a bit of soul-searching in this film and it’s about a man who isn’t sure about what he is looking for,” said Khan, who plays an Indian-native tourist guide in Europe.

    One of his clients, Sejal played by Sharma, loses her engagement ring and enlists his help and expertise in to help her find it. They traipse around Europe in search of the ring and ends up on a journey of mutual self-discovery.

    The actor, who is also the tourism ambassador for Dubai, said that if given a chance he would take the fictional character Sejal, a Gujarati woman in search of her lost ring, to a desert safari, his home in Dubai’s Palm Jumeriah where he would cook her a meal, a fancy dinner-date at the Japanese restaurant, Nobu, and the Music Hall nightclub if the movie was set against the UAE background.

    Jab Harry Met Sejal has director Imtiaz Ali’s stamp all over it: a couple of lost souls who embark on exotic travel, adventure and some healthy self-discovery.

    “Imtiaz’s film has an amazing dichotomy. They deal with complex internal emotions … Imtiaz’s films have grey areas in relationships, love and personalities,” said Khan.

    Between the pair, it’s Sharma who’s bitten by wanderlust. She loves travelling solo and feels that travel opens minds and expands horizons.

    For Khan, he isn’t much of a traveler and his adventures have been limited to staying in plush hotel rooms during filming in exotic locations. But after the experience of filming Jab Harry Met Sejal in several European countries, he’s now a convert.

    “Imtiaz has a familial way of making films. We moved from one European city to another, filmed a lot and ate dinners at night together. It was a personal experience in that sense,” said Khan.

    In turn, Sharma who was last seen with Shah Rukh Khan in the blockbuster Jab Tak Hai Jaan is warming up to Khan as an actor and a human being.

    “Yes, I am more at ease now. But the fact is that Shah Rukh Khan from my first film to this one has treated me the same. He has been consistently good to me. He’s the most giving of actor. My respect for him keeps increasing because he takes care of everybody,” said Sharma.
