Directed by Prakash Varma, the films will see Khan unravel the many secrets of Dubai, making the viewers look at the city from his perspective. "Dubai is a second home to me… Whether I am here (Dubai) on vacation with my family and friends or my many business trips here for shoots, it's a city that I truly relate to on so many levels – driven, passionate and spirited," he told the media.

Scheduled to be released on Dubai Tourism channels, the short films will kick-start a year-long campaign highlighting tourism in association with the Hindi film industry. Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing is hopeful that with Khan on board the global audience will be able to see the kind of magic Dubai has to offer.
