Veteran actor Anupam Kher dined with Swiss President Doris Leuthard at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi.

Kher, 62, on Thursday shared a photograph of the invite on Twitter and captioned it: "It was an honour to attend dinner in honour of... President of the Swiss confederation. Thank you..."

He said Leuthard made a special mention of late filmmaker Yash Chopra in her speech. "At the dinner hosted by Rashtrapati Bhavan... Doris Leuthard made a special mention of Yash Chopraji in her speech," he tweeted.

Many of Yash Chopra's films featured Switzerland as a backdrop, and he is credited with boosting the popularity of the Alpine nation among Indian tourists.
