True to the adage, ‘The best deserves only the best’, the multitude viewers
of Asianet (Kerala’s No.1 channel) have selected Shah Rukh Khan as the ‘International Icon Of Indian Cinema’. This prestigious laurel was presented to SRK at the 16th edition of Asianet Film Awards by southern superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal at a grand award function which was held at Medan, Dubai yesterday.
Speaking about the award, SRK said, “It is a great honour for me to receive this award by Asianet. And to be given the award and so much love by Mammootty and Mohanlal sir was an amazing feeling. They are the artistes who have inspired me as an actor always. I have always worked towards making or being a part of cinema that entertains all and is meant for all. It is humbling to know that it gets noticed in the same capacity. Awards always motivate me to work harder and make more cinema that brings a smile on everyone’s face. I wish Asianet many more glorious years of entertainment and success.”
Besides this, the USP of the event was Mohanlal’s surprise rendition of
an entire song from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. If that wasn’t enough, then, SRK danced both the south veterans on Chennai Express‘ hit track ‘Lungi Dance’.
