Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was launched as the new face of Dubai Tourism in December 2016 and released a promotional video that gives us all the reasons why the emirate is his home away from home. #BeMyGuest, a promotional film produced by Dubai's Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing has now won two top awards at the 10th anniversary of the International Tourism Film Festival, "Tourfilm Riga", held in Riga, Latvia.

In the film, Khan shoots in different parts of the city — both trendy and traditional and invites people to “come be his guest”.

This is the second award for the Dubai Tourism film. In March, the film won the Diamond Award in the 'City' category of ITB Berlin's "Golden City Gate" awards, the film, print and multimedia competition focused on tourism.

The actor who also owns a house in Dubai, is a frequent visitor to the emirate. He said in a release: “Dubai offers endless experiences that stay with you forever. Whatever you want to do – an adrenaline-fuelled adventure like skydiving or a desert safari or a delicious culinary experience – and whether you’re travelling with family, friends or as a couple, this city truly offers a complete holiday experience.”

Enjoyed the cooking the flying the beach & just jogging…
