Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan was spotted in the holy city of Mecca after the schedule wrap of his upcoming movie Dunki in Saudi Arabia. The actor on Wednesday announced the winding up of Dunki's Saudi Arabia shoot schedule, which is from Munna Bhai MBBS director Rajkumar Hirani. Social media was flooded with the superstar's photos and videos showing him praying in the holy city.
The viral pictures shared by a fan page of Shah Rukh showed the actor surrounded by people and some security personnel. He is seen in white clothes and has his face covered with a mask as he performs Umrah, which is an Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.

Sharing the post, the official Twitter account of SRK's fan club wrote, "[Pics]: King #ShahRukhKhan performing Umrah at Makka Sharif."
