Recently, Shah Rukh Khan flew to the city to attend an event organised by his “good friend” Mohamed Ali Alabbar’s real estate company Emaar Properties.

As pictures and videos of 'King Khan' from his latest visit are going viral on social media, let us also rewind to the recent times when Shah Rukh lit up Dubai with his presence.

Pathaan has already left movie lovers in awe with its high-octane action sequences. However, before the film was released in theatres, its trailer launch event was a night to remember in Dubai. The amazing trailer was played on Burj Khalifa, a video of which was even shared on Instagram. The highlight of the clip was when SRK was seen dancing at the event and having a great time with his fans.

3. Shah Rukh Khan’s 55th birthday bash

In 2020, Burj Khalifa was lit up with SRK’s name as a special gesture to mark his 55th birthday.
