Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan is hosting a private dinner for Apple CEO Tim Cook, who is on a business trip to India. The dinner, scheduled for Wednesday has been organised at the Bollywood star’s Bandra (W) residence, Mannat.

“Cook is likely to participate in a seminar-cum-workshop at Mehboob Studios (Bandra West). The session will be moderated by Mahesh Bhatt (filmmaker). Post that, Cook will join Shah Rukh for dinner,” says an insider.

Apparently, before Cook landed in India, his team had contacted Shah Rukh’s team looking for a possibility of a meeting between the two. When the actor found out about this, he decided to host a private dinner for Cook, instead of just a plain meeting. “Contrary to what has been reported, the dinner won’t be a formal sit-down affair. It will be more of an informal get-together,” adds the insider.
