Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and his family recently turned hosts for footballer David Beckham, who recently visited India to witness first-hand the impact of UNICEF-supported programmes on girls and women in rural India.
Sharing a photo from the dinner party on Friday, SRK called Beckham an ‘absolute gentleman’ and wrote in the caption, “Last nite with an icon…and an absolute gentleman. Have always been a big admirer but meeting him and seeing how he is with kids made me realise that the only thing that out does his football is his kindness and his gentle nature. My love to your family. Be well and happy my friend and get some sleep….@Davidbeckham.”
