Dubai honors Shah Rukh Khan with a star at Walk of Fame

  • The walkable monument will have 400 stars initially
  • They are awarded to tribute the positive impact of some local and international personalities

DUBAI: Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Bollywood, is the second celebrity to receive a tribute in Dubai Stars’ lane of stars scheduled to open later this year.
The company said SRK was one of the most nominated A-list celebrities for the Hollywood-style Walk of Fame being reading along Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai.

The Bollywood star was also chosen to be the face of Dubai’s ‘Be My Guest’ campaign, where he shot six videos exploring various locations and activities in the city through a series of quests.

Dubai Stars, a walkable tribute by Emaar, plans to launch its first 400 stars in October and has honored Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab with the first star for his work and being ‘the pride of the Arab world.’
The personalized stars will honor different national and international celebrities and personalities for their positive impact in their respective fields including music, film, art, sports and literature.
Upon the completion of the project, the landmark is expected to have more than 10,000 stars.

What We Are Buying Today: Yataghan Jewellery

In January, my family celebrated my birthday by gifting me a “Hubb Collection” necklace that I had wanted ever since I laid eyes on it, when one of my relatives wore it.

The design of the word ‘Love’ — written in Arabic Farsi font and angled in a way that makes it heart-shaped — fascinated me, and I have worn the necklace ever since I got it, partly out of sentiment, but also because I find it so beautiful and unique.

Jeddah-based Yataghan Jewellery — the maker of the “Hubb Collection” — has a variety of gold designs, stackable jewel-ornamented hexagon rings, necklaces, bracelets and rings engraved in Arabic Farsi.

The store’s Instagram account @yataghanjewellery documents its trademark pieces and shares customers’ experiences along with how they choose to stack their Yataghan pieces.

Customer favorites include their Allah necklace, and the “Hubb Collection” (rings, necklaces and bracelets in crystalized or standard gold, silver or rose gold with a single colorful or silver crystal).
