From SRK to a Hollywood legend, these are the celebrities who were spotted in Dubai this week.

Also here for DIFF, here’s legendary actor Richard Dreyfuss chilling in the VIP Lounge. This is a suite at the festival where celebs get gifted all sorts of things, including O’de Rose goodies, Monkey Biscuits, jewellery from Saudi Arabian, Dubai-based designer Rawana Al Fassi and much more. This photo of the 68-year-old Mr Holland’s Opus, Jaws and American Graffiti star wearing a Caliente trucker cap has truly made our week.

British actor Rupert Everett also checked out the trucker caps while at DIFF, just slightly more tentatively.


One of the few men who can pull off sunglasses inside, Bollywood legend Shah Rukh Khan took a selfie with fans while visiting VOX Cinemas at MOE.

Some of these fans are really in the moment.

Here’s boxer Floyd Mayweather enjoying some Arabian hospitality – the day after this was posted he popped over to Dubai Mall to buy a Dhs4 million, diamond-covered Hublot watch (puts our Casio to shame).
