Shah Rukh Khan hosts dinner for Apple CEO Tim Cook
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan hosted a private dinner for Apple CEO Tim Cook, at his home, Mannat, on Wednesday. Touted as one of the best dinner parties, the event was attended by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Adi and Parmeshwar Godrej, Akash Ambani, AR Rahman, Aishwarya Rai, Aamir Khan and Vidhu Vinod Chopra, among others. Vicky Ratnani, the celebrity chef was in-charge of the kitchen for this dinner party, said sources.
Celebs were very happy after meeting Mr. Cook and thanked King Khan for such a grand bash. Here are some of the pictures where people can be seen enjoying the gala with Tim Cook, who is on his first India visit as Apple CEO.

Earlier in the evening, Cook was taken on a tour to the sets of upcoming horror film Raaz 4, by Film and TV Producers Guild of India president Mukesh Bhatt, at Mehboob Studio in Mumbai.

"People from the Apple group got in touch with me, saying that Tim would not want to skip Bollywood on his first visit to India. I showed him around the sets. He seemed keen to see how Apple could partner with the industry - after all, movies don't have to be made by just big film producers these days, it can be shot on producers these days, it can be shot on an iPhone," said Mukesh Bhatt.

Mr. Cook landed at Mumbai airport in his private jet at 11:45 pm on Tuesday night. He will stay for a week in India and will visit Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Delhi and Gurgaon. He kick-started his tour with a pre-dawn visit to Shree Siddhivinayak Temple at Prabhadevi in Mumbai.

On Saturday Cook is expected to visit Delhi to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has been trying to stimulate India's manufacturing sector and develop the country's ties with Silicon Valley. According to a source from Apple, Cook will also visit iPhone stores in Delhi and Gurgaon.

Although, India represents a much smaller share of Apple's revenues than China, the country is still an important market for the world's second biggest smart phone maker. Cook had said earlier this year that, "India is incredibly exciting. The population of India is incredibly young. Almost half the people in India are below 25. And so I see the demographics there also being incredibly great for a consumer brand and for people that really want the best products."
