Actor Shah Rukh Khan who attended the Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah as a representative of India. In a recent interview the actor spoke about how he is fortunate to work in Indian films and promote it at the world stage. He also affirmed that he loves to receive recognitions and awards for his works.
Shah Rukh was felicitated with an honorary award to ‘recognise his exceptional contribution to the film industry’ at the film festival. Earlier he also received an award in Shahraj and thereafter with the Global Icon of Cinema and Cultural Narrative award for being the ‘ international icon of cinema and culture’.
At his latest win, Shah Rukh spoke with TV presenter Raya Abirached, “I shamelessly and brazenly say I like awards. I like the whole idea because it’s not for a specific job that I have done. I have been trying to make people happy for the last 32 years, sometimes successfully, sometimes not, but I feel nice.”
“I sometimes feel being recognised for this work is not something individual, it’s for the film industry in India. I am very fortunate and lucky that I get chosen in places to be the face of the Indian film industry. I am just very happy that I can go and tell the stories of Indian films and how we make cinema to the rest of the work and bring it forth, hopefully, people will see them more around, whether I am in those films or not,” he added.
