[tps_footer]Shah Rukh Khan, the face of Indian cinema for the world, the Badshah of Bollywood, the king of love, and much more, has recently been awarded by the President of India, at the Presidential Residence (Rashtrapati Bhavan) in New Delhi.
Shah Rukh Khan is among the 25 living Global Indian legends. The world learns romance from his movies, a girl somewhere in Germany tells her boyfriend to love her like Shah Rukh Khan does, his photos are sold with Gods and Goddesses to international tourists in Varanasi, his birthday is known as the “Day of love”, and it becomes a chaotic situation outside his palatial residence Mannat on this day – that is Shah Rukh Khan’s magic.
Wherever he goes, there is a beeline of fans to see him. When he walked the red carpet at the Berlinale, organizers were shocked to see the fanatic gathering of crowd. And be it any corner of the world – he has fans. Shah Rukh Khan is truly a legend, and the story will be told by many for centuries to come. The foundation of this connection is made with love, and nothing can shake it, or break it.
The award ceremony was organized as part of NDTV’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Shah Rukh Khan was given the title of unstoppable living legend by NDTV at this ceremony.
Shah Rukh Khan, “Never forget to be thankful to almighty, your parents, your family, your friends, the people you work with, the people who work with you and everyone who has been a part of your journey, because on your own you are not unique. You are rather alone! So, gratitude should be an attitude. Also, never try to be anyone else, because it takes away the two greatest gifts from you – the ability to fail, and the ability to accept ‘I don’t know’. And lastly, don’t forget to pray.”
