Shah Rukh Khan awarded BrandLaureate Legendary Award
Having gone to attend Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohammad's birthday, Shah Rukh Khan was also awarded the prestigious BrandLaureate Legendary Award.
The Malaysia-base Asia Pacific Brands Foundation presented the 47-year-old actor the honour for his contributions to the Bollywood film industry and as India's foremost brand ambassador.
Humbled by the honour, Shah Rukh commented,"It is an honour to be given the Brandlaureate Legendary Award. It is always a pleasure to be amongst friends and to be given so much love and motivation to do better."
Later the actor tweeted, "Got honoured at Dr Mahathirs function & a beautiful digital Koran."
The BrandLaureate Legendary Award has been earlier given to the likes of Dr Nelson Mandela, Nobel Laureate recipient Mohammad Yunus, Ratan Tata, Steve Jobs, Marck Zuckerburg, Michael Schumacher and more.
In 2008 Shah Rukh had become the first Indian actor to be conferred with the prestigious Malaysian title of Datuk (equivalent of the British Knighthood) by the governor of Malaysia's southern state of Malacca for promoting tourism through his movies in that region.
