Shah Rukh Star Power in Marrakesh

© Hindi Cinema Blog

The Marrakesh International Film Festival met with an euphoric crowd of more than 50,000 people at the Jemaa el-Fna square for several hours as fans awaited Shah Rukh Khan to grace the event’s red carpet. The star seemed so moved that he braved his own security to wave at the thousands gathered there.

Indian cinema has a huge following in Morocco and throughout Africa, which also caused crowd incidents when in 2007 Shah Rukh Khan, accompanied by Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta and the late Yash Chopra visited France, a country where a large population of Moroccan immigrants has taken residence.

Prince Moulay Rachid later invited the star to a royal dinner and presented Shah Rukh Khan with the Medal of Honour of Morocco for his contribution to cinema.
