Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe has invited President Barack Obama's daughters to visit the sets of Harry Potter when he starts shooting for the film later this year.

The 19 year old star in an interview to website 'The Daily Beast' said that he would be 'honoured' to show Malia and Sasha around the sets of "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows".

"I'd like to take this opportunity to issue a public invitation to the Obamas that if their daughters would like a private tour of the Harry Potter set, I would be honoured to be their personal tour guide," said Radcliffe, who plays the famous boy wizard in the films based on the novel written by JK Rowling.

The Obamas are reportedly known to be big Potter fans, with the President reading the books aloud to 10 year old Malia and seven year old Sasha.

In an interview in 2007, Michelle Obama admitted "Harry Potter is huge in our house."

Radcliffe, who was in the US for the Obama's inauguration, praised the newly elected President in his interview to the website.

"I'm so happy for this country. He's everything the rest of the world liked about America and now likes again," he said.
