A second #BeMyGuest video starring Shah Rukh Khan and the emirate of Dubai will be released on Saturday.

The first film saw him roaming through the spice markets, sky diving, playing volleyball on the beach and shopping at Dubai Mall, all the while surprising Dubai’s residents.

A second edition of the Dubai Tourism #BeMyGuest campaign will be released next week, and the Bollywood megastar has posted a teaser of the video on his Twitter.

The full video was shot in May, and will be released on Saturday, but the good news for SRK mega-fans is that a behind-the-scenes video of the new #BeMyGuest video, directed by Kabir Khan, has been released online.

The new footage shows Shah Rukh Khan, 52, kayaking in Hatta, going down a waterslide at Dubai Parks & Resorts, and strolling through the Dubai Aquarium.

“Shah Rukh is a global icon, he’s recognised all over the world,” explains Kabir Khan. “He’s recognised not only by the South Asian diaspora, but also by a large number of people all over the world. He’s somebody who is truly international, and he’s representing a city that’s truly international.”

The Raees and Don star even appears to conquer a fear in the video: “My biggest fear is going down a dark tunnel with water inside it,” he says, on his way to do just that.

The first #BeMyGuest video, which was released in December 2016, won the Grand Prix prize at the International Tourism Film Festival in Latvia.
