Guess who's the special fan?

On an invite from his special fan, Bollywood's star Shah Rukh Khan attended Arsenal vs Newcastle United Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium on Monday. 

Guess who's the special fan? It is none other than Arsenal's star midfielder and one of the best footballers in the world, Mesut Ozil. 

Shah Rukh Khan, who is popular as 'King Khan' in the Indian film industry, posted a picture of him with Ozil and a Swedish-Turkish actress Amine Gulse. 

"What a lovely evening @Arsenal congratulations. Thx @MesutOzil1088 & #AmineGulse for your warmth love & hospitality. See u guys soon in India," Shah Rukh wrote on his Twitter handle.  

While in the match, goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal a 2-0 win over Newcastle United on Monday and lifted them to third place in the Premier League above rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United. 

The result put Arsenal on 63 points with seven games left, two above Spurs and Manchester United, with Chelsea a further point behind, as Unai Emery's side boosted their hopes of a top-four finish and Champions League football next season.
