Shah Rukh Khan in Kathmandu (With video)

“Just landed in Kathmandu. Years ago I had come here, feels so pleasant and calm here,” Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan tweeted on Monday immediately after landing at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), Kathmandu for a day’s visit.

Khan, who reached directly to Hyatt Regency to launch an environment-friendly initiative of Nerolac Paints U-Can, tried making his tweet more clear and vowed to make another trip to Nepal as soon as possible.
