Khan considers Dubai as his second home and he is also the brand ambassador of the long-term tourism campaign of Dubai #BeMyGuest which was launched in 2016 and has received 100 million users worldwide.
At the launch of the latest installment of #BeMyGuest, Khan said…
“I have been travelling regularly to this wonderful city for years and each time I visit, I’m just amazed by so much that’s new, exciting and the best-of-its-kind in the world. But beyond the fresh and exciting things to explore, what I find truly memorable is the soul of the city – its people and hospitality – that make every visit even more remarkable.”
“Dubai is a truly fantastic destination with so much to discover, whether it’s family entertainment, culture, adventure, or food, and its superlative service that makes it the must-visit destination for everyone.”
– Shahrukh Khan
