Footballer David Beckham seemed to have had a memorable visit to India. While fulfilling his duties as a UNICEF ambassador, he also interacted with Bollywood celebrities in Mumbai during his stay in the city. After attending Sonam Kapoor`s intimate dinner party, the footballer spent quality time with Shah Rukh Khan and his family at Mannat.
The dinner party at Mannat was also a small and private affair. After a long wait, the picture of the day arrived with Shah Rukh`s post. The superstar shared a picture with David on Instagram and penned an appreciation note.
Shah Rukh wrote, “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 outdoes his football is his kindness and his gentle nature. My love to your family. Be well and happy my friend and get some sleep…. (sic).”
The superstar was dressed in a black T-shirt and jeans whereas David wore an olive coloured T-shirt along with a jacket and pants. The legends of both worlds posing together sent netizens into a meltdown.
Sonam shared pictures from the exclusive dinner with David and wrote, “It was such a pleasure showing you a small taste of India @davidbeckham @davidgardner
Hope you loved India as much as India loves you! Thank you to my team that’s helped me put it together.”
It appeared Sonam and Anand were at Shah Rukh`s bash last night. The latter shared a picture on Instagram. However, it didn`t feature any person`s face. Instead, the focus was on their footwear. The picture included Shah Rukh, Gauri Khan, Suhana Khan, Aryan Khan, Anil Kapoor, Sonam and Anand. The post`s caption read, “Mumbai Nights *** “We won’t be distracted by comparison if we’re captivated by purpose.””
David was also at the World Cup 2023 India vs. New Zealand Semi-Finals held at the Wankhede Stadium on November 15. He interacted with Bollywood celebrities like Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra. Pictures and videos of the footballer enjoying the World Cup 2023 went viral. Later that day, he was at Sonam`s residence.
