Tech savvy superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be hosting Apple CEO Tim Cook at his Mannat residence tonight. According to reports, the actor will host a private dinner for Cook, before he heads to Delhi to meet PM Modi.
Tim, who is on his first official visit to the country, will set up a software laboratory in India to help Indian startups and developers working on the company’s iOS platform. The CEO arrived late Tuesday night, and is expected to meet the PM along with a few other officials and engineers later this week.
However, Shah Rukh Khan will reportedly host a lavish dinner tonight, at his residence in Brandra to welcome the CEO. It has been reported that Cook is a big fan of the actor’s work. SRK will also call on his friends from the industry to be a part of the closed door bash.
Celebrities, including Amitabh Bachchan and his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Madhuri Dixit and filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra, attended the celebration. Mr Cook landed in Mumbai shortly before midnight on Tuesday by private jet from China. Today morning, Mr Cook visited the famous Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai.
Later this week, he will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who he first met in Silicon Valley last year.
