David Beckham recently visited India and attended two back-to-back parties after experiencing the vibe and craze of cricket in India. The star footballer was spotted watching the India vs New Zealand World Cup semi-final match.
Interestingly, after his appearance at Sonam Kapoor’s Diwali 2023 bash, he went to meet the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, at his Mumbai residence - Mannat, before wrapping his India trip.
Now, following the closure of his India expedition, David Beckham has penned a note of gratitude for his two actors on Instagram.
Taking to his IG handle, the former Manchester United star shared a picture with Shah Rukh Khan from their get-together at Mannat and another from Sonam Kapoor's bash, David wrote, “Honoured to have been welcomed into this great man’s home. To enjoy a meal with @iamsrk, @gaurikhan, their beautiful children and close friends – what a special way to end my first visit to India... Thank you my friend – you and your family are welcome any time in my home…”
In a message for Sonam Kapoor, David 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."
In no time, Sonam responded to David Beckham’s post and commented, “You’re extremely gracious and a thorough gentleman.” Anand also wrote back to David, “@davidbeckham you & your team are the most respectful & thoughtful guests … you treated everyone with kindness and brought a charming sense of curiosity to all the conversations you had. You constantly showed us your patient, long term outlook on engaging with a part of the world that has always been an observer of your journey and is ecstatic to now be a part of it. And I surely look forward to meeting again soon.”
“Every big player or star who visits India makes sure to meet Shah Rukh Khan. He's the face of India globally,” commented a fan reacting to David's post. Another wrote in humour, “Give him the Indian citizenship already.”
Sonam Kapoor and her husband Anand Ahuja hosted David at their new Mumbai home on Wednesday. Some of the A-listers in attendance were her Kapoor family including father Anil Kapoor, siblings Rhea Kapoor and Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor, cousin Arjun Kapoor with girlfriend Malaika Arora, cousin Mohit Marwah and his wife Antara, uncle Sanjay Kapoor, his wife Maheep Kapoor and their daughter Shanaya Kapoor.
Karisma Kapoor also attended the party along with some of Sonam's colleagues like Shahid Kapoor with wife Mira Rajput and Farhan Akhtar with wife Shibani.
