    For the uninitiated, the white garment worn by Shah Rukh is called Rida and Izar, which men wear while performing Umrah. Umrah is a pilgrimage to Mecca, which is situated in Saudi Arabia. It can be done at any time of the year, but Hajj is performed only during Eid al-Azha, which is a duty of every Muslim according to the Quran.

    Before Shah Rukh Khan, there have been many actors who were also spotted at the holy city performing Umrah. Let's take a look.
