Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will share space with a host of Arab, Iranian, Indian and Filipino performers at an Eid event in Dubai.
To be held on the sidelines of a consumer fair called Shoppiesta, the five-day event will kick off on August 31 and feature two concerts every night, the Gulf News reported.
The first night of the concert will be an Arabic night with Lebanese singers Ajram and Melheim Zein taking the stage while the second night will see Filipino pop and R&B band South Border perform followed by girl band Mocha Girls.
Day three will feature Iranian diva Googoosh and Day 4 Hariharan and Shankar Mahadevan. The final night on September 4 promises to be the biggest with performances by 50 Cent, followed by Shah Rukh Khan who will be joined by a 70-member entourage including actresses Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor.
"We're aiming for the masses. This is not an elitist event. The event will feature all the things Dubai does best, from adventure sports, shopping and leisure activities during the five-day public holiday period all under one roof and all at very affordable prices," said Krishna Ramanathan, the managing director of Citron, which owns Shoppiesta.
