Mumbai: Bollywood’s most popular actor Aamir Khan and his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao are all set for a brush with royalty. News has it that the couple has been invited to attend a royal dinner with Prince Charles and Camila Parker Bowles at the Marlborough House in Westminster, London.

A source speaking to a news daily said, “Aamir is honoured and has accepted the invitation from Prince Charles inviting him to cocktails and dinner being hosted for a select gathering.”

Prince Charles had watched quite a few of Aamir’s films and buzz has it that he was so impressed with the actor and his line of work that he officially invited him for a dinner party.

Interestingly, this is not the first time Prince Charles is going to meet an Indian actor. Earlier, the Prince had met actress Padmini Kolhapure, while he was on an official tour in the 80s, and even Bollywood baddie Gulshan Grover claims to have met the Prince sharing a cuppa with him!

Meanwhile, Aamir Khan will be in Toronto on September 9, for the Toronto Film Festival where Kiran`s film ‘Dhobi Ghat’ is to be screened. And after that, he is expected to be in London for the UK release of ‘Peepli Live’ on September 24. And it will be then that the actor and his wife will play guest to the royal host.
