The two Bollywood stars made their presence felt at The Oberoi in Downtown Dubai. Later on, at the Arabian Center in Khawaneej where SRK was slated to break his Ramadan fast with fans, a huge throng turned up.
True to his style, Shahrukh Khan entertained them all. He and Deepika Padukone even gave autographs to a few fans.
At the press meet, the two stars fielded questions about the film and the King Khan was particularly asked how it felt to wear a lungi in Chennai Express.
“I’m not used to wearing things that make me feel insecure. With all the lights on set you had to be careful,” SRK wittily replied.
When asked about the fans in Dubai, Shahrukh said it was great and humbling to see so much love from the fans. Deepika Padukone was quite moved at the warm reception by the Dubai fans.
Chennai Express is slated to release on August 9. It stars Shahrukh Khan as a 40-year-old man who makes a journey to south India to immerse his late father’s ashes. But on the way he gets embroiled with the feisty daughter (Deepika) of a don and falls in love. The film is an out-and-out entertainer.
