Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan paid a surprise visit to Al Jalila Children's Specialty Hospital recently in keeping with the spirit of the UAE Year of Giving. Shah Rukh toured the hospital, getting a first-hand look at its ultramodern facilities, and spent time meeting some of its young patients enquiring about their well-being.
Al Jalila Children's Hospital was established under the directives of UAE Vice-President and Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum. It is the first hospital in the UAE dedicated to children, providing compassionate and quality healthcare. Maktoum's vision is for Al Jalila Children's Hospital to become one of the top 10 paediatric hospitals in the world.
Shah Rukh is currently in Dubai filming the sequel to the award-winning #BeMyGuest film, which is part of a promotional campaign run by Dubai Tourism. The original film has so far garnered 45 million views across multiple social media channels as well as 65 million engagements from around the world. #BeMyGuest also reached No 3 on YouTube's worldwide trending list within 48 hours of its launch, becoming one of the top 10 most viewed videos on the website globally in December.
