William and Kate deserve warmest welcome, says Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan
The actor, who is known as “King Khan” to his legions of loyal fans, met the royal couple on Sunday at an evening celebrating India’s film industry during their stop in Mumbai on their royal tour.

“You think of everyone from the outside as different so it’s very right. England has been so welcoming to everyone from India so it is only fair we should be even nicer and warmer.”
The couple chatted about their children, food and Bollywood films during the charity gala in the industry’s historic home city, hosted at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel where some of the bloody 2008 Mumbai attacks took place.
