During his recent trip to Qatar, versatile actor Johnny Depp paid a visit to Galeries Lafayette Doha in 21 High St at Katara Cultural Village on 28 March 2019. The legend was invited there to meet a group of children with special needs.
The Hollywood star was personally greeted upon arrival by his friends, the Chairman & President of Ali Bin Ali Holding, Adel Ali Bin Ali, and Vice-Chairman and EVP of Ali Bin Ali Holding, Nabeel Ali Bin Ali. Hundreds of Johnny Depp’s fans were waiting for a glimpse of their favourite star and cheered as he waved at them.
Adel Ali Bin Ali said:
We are delighted to be able to host the international star and friend Johnny Depp. It has been a very special rendezvous which was made even more memorable by the kids. Depp has a heart of gold and we are touched by his sensitivity towards each child.’
Depp shared some exclusive time with the kids at the ‘La Suite’ in Galeries Lafayette Doha. The private penthouse was decorated with posters of the superstar to set the mood. He cuddled each and every child and interacted with them individually. In his own signature style, he surprised the kids and spread love and happiness. Depp added:
Kids make me happy. I feel blessed if I can bring a smile on their pretty faces.’
