Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be honoured with a Dubai Star on the Dubai Walk of Fame project.
It was announced on the official Twitter handle of the Dubai Stars project.
Khan is the face of Dubai Tourism's Be My Guest campaign, and calls Dubai his second home.
He joins an elite list of global achievers, that also includes celebrated Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi and noted fashion designer Elie Saab.
Messi gets his very own 'Dubai Star' and remember, you heard it here first. Tag someone who needs to know this and nominate your favourite star to get the chance to meet them in person, at the home of the Burj Khalifa.— The Dubai Stars (@TheDubaiStars) June 27, 2019
The Dubai Star, which will be launched in October, seeks to recognise individuals who have influenced the world through their work in various fields.
