Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has been promoting Dubai in India, will release his latest movie Jab Harry Met Sejal in the UAE a day before it releases in India.

In a tweet, the actor, who recently promoted Dubai and has a huge fan following in the Middle East, said: “Enjoy Jab Harry Met Sejal in theatres in UAE-GCC, 3rd August onwards!”

Directed by Imtiaz Ali, the movie has been shot in locations such as Prague, Amsterdam, Vienna, Lisbon and Budapest. He co-stars with Anushka Sharma, who debuted with him in her first movie, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

Shah Rukh Khan, who started filming a series of videos in partnership with Dubai Tourism from November, said: “Dubai is a second home to me. Whether I am here on vacation with my family and friends or my many business trips here for shoots, it’s a city that I truly relate to on so many levels - driven, passionate and spirited. And I can’t wait to take my fans and fellow travellers from around the world on an unexpected discovery of a city that I love.”
