Shah Rukh Khan to Perform in the Coronation of Bhutan’s New King

Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk will ascend to the throne of Bhutan pretty soon as the new king through a power-packed coronation program in the presence of some of the high-profile Indian politicians including chief guest President Pratibha Patil. UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi is in the list of invitees. Along with External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi will reportedly join the coronation program of the new king.

On the coronation of Bhutan’s new king, Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan will perform along with Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif at Thimpu’s new soccer stadium. As a movie-freak person, the would-be king Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk has made a royal request for performance by Bollywood stars. At 29, he is going to be world’s youngest king. No doubt, a glittering performance is expected on the coronation ceremony of Bhutan’s new king.
