Bollywood fans have a smorgasbord of celebrity-spotting to look forward to over the next few days - with none other than the King of Bollywood leading the way.

As part of a whirlwind trip to promote his new blockbuster Zero, Shah Rukh Khan will head to White at Dubai's Meydan Racecourse rooftop on Wednesday night to party with his fans.

On Thursday, Khan will make an appearance at Global Village between 8pm and 9pm to promote the film, before heading off to Kuwait and Oman. The best part is, it will only cost you the Dh15 entry fee to get a glimpse of King Khan.

The Dubai Tourism ambassador's newest flick has been hotly anticipated by his legions of fans around the world, not least for his role as a dwarf, but also for the Salman Khan cameo. It was also partially shot in Dubai.

The chemistry between the two went on display for the world to see in the Issaqbaazi song from the movie, and the movie's trailer - which became the fastest to hit the 100 million mark on Youtube:

But Khan isn't the only Bollywood superstar to be keeping celebrity-spotters busy over the next few days. While Sara Ali Khan cancelled last minute to promote her movie Kedarnath's December 7 release, Kareena Kapoor will be in town as a judge at tonight's red carpet for the Masala Awards.

And as Khan takes the stage over at Global Village, a five-hour tribute to music composer RD Burman will be taking place at Sheikh Rashid auditorium at The Indian High School, Dubai. Big names such as Abhijeet, Javed Ali and Sudesh Bhosle will be belting out old-school classics, while Asha Bhosle will take to the stage to share anecdotes about Burman, her late husband.

And if that wasn't enough for one night, Badshah, a big-name singer for the millenials, is also lined up to play the same evening, at Madinat Arena, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, as part of Badmashi Live. The rap king - with hit numbers such as Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai, and Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai - will headline the concert.

But if Sufi music is your preferred genre, Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan will be performing at the World Trade Centre on Friday evening. In the final show of his world tour, the Qawwali legend and nephew of the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan will take to the stage from 7.30pm.

Tickets for the concerts are available on platinumlist.net.
