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.

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

Prince William and wife Catherine are arriving on their first visit to India on Sunday.

“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 said when asked if he is planning a special screening of Fan for the couple.

During the interview, SRK replied to a suggestions of doing a Dubsmash with the royal couple with this: “They will never allow it. I am told there is a decor and I said OK 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 on Sunday, is to support his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, who have a match against Delhi Daredevils.

“I have my match (on Sunday). 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,” the King Khan added.
