Shah Rukh Khan was felicitated alongside Hollywood stars Elton John and Cate Blanchett at the World Economic Forum's official ceremony on January 22 in Davos. While receiving the honour, SRK talked about how his wife Gauri Khan, mom and daughter Suhana Khan for his values.

Talking about receiving the honour, SRK said, “Extremely charged that I’ve had this amazing opportunity, this award, being recognized like this for minuscule work that I did, I’d like to do it with even more fervor. What is even more pleasant is that India is here in full power.”

SRK even thanked the women in his life and said, “I want to thank my sister, my wife and my little daughter for bringing me up well and teaching me the value of requesting, sometimes imploring and begging a yes from a woman, instead of forcing it upon her.”
