Shah Rukh Khan: It's a great honour to introduce the royal couple


Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan says it's a great honour for him to introduce Britain's royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton.

They are arriving on their first visit to India on Sunday, April 10.

The royal couple will be given a starry reception on their arrival in the city which will be attended by film stars including Aamir Khan, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, according to the British High Commission.

"There will be lot of actors and friends so it will be fun. I think it's a big honour to be there and introduce them and be nice.

"We will decide if they want to see the film ('Fan') or not. In England they still watch our films. So hopefully let's see," Shah Rukh, 50, told PTI when asked if he is planning a special screening of 'Fan' for the Royal couple.

During the interview, the public relations team of 'Fan' said, "We suggested him (Shah Rukh) to do a 'dubsmash' with them (on 'Jabra' Fan)."

To which the 'Happy New Year' star replied, "They will never allow it." 

"I am told there is a decor and I said okay tell me what to do. It shouldn't be like they don't let my kids study in London," the 'Dilwale' actor joked.

Apart from introducing the royal couple, another important task Shah Rukh has tomorrow is to support his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, who have a match against Delhi Daredevils.

"I have my match (tomorrow). I want to watch it (and) I want to go to Kolkata. But it doesn't take away from the fact that it is important that I introduce Prince Williams and his wife Kate. I just introduce them. I am not performing for them. Nobody is performing," he added.

Directed by Maneesh Sharma, 'Fan' starring SRK in a double role and Walusha De Sousa, is slated to release on April 15.
