David Beckham recently visited India, attending two parties after the India vs. New Zealand World Cup semi-final match. Following his presence at Sonam Kapoor’s gathering, he extended his trip to meet Shah Rukh Khan and his family at Mannat before concluding his visit. Beckham took to Instagram to express his appreciation for the warm welcome from both actors.
Sharing snapshots from the gatherings, one at Mannat with Shah Rukh Khan and another at Sonam Kapoor’s residence, David conveyed, “I am honored to have been invited into this great man’s home. Sharing a meal with @iamsrk, @gaurikhan, their beautiful children, and close friends—what a special way to conclude my first visit to India… Thank you, my friend; you and your family are welcome anytime in my home.”
In a message directed at Sonam Kapoor, Beckham wrote, “@sonamkapoor and @anandahuja, you hosted me with such warmth and kindness this week. Thank you for the amazing evening you created at your home. See you again soon.”
