Bollywood movie superstar Shah Rukh Khan was honored at the SFFILM Fest, he is the first Indian actor to receive a tribute at the SFIFF.
When asked how did he feel, Shahrukh said, “I think I know why I have been given this tribute (smiles). You know, when I got there (San Francisco, USA), I saw so many people from our country, so many Indians. It’s their love that attracts people and [causes] the diaspora to convince other people in different cities around the world that Indian films are important.”
SRK’s conversation with Hollywood director Brett Ratner was one of the highlights of the day, but as has been observed in the past, everybody wants to see him perform the ‘lungi’ dance and strike the famous SRK pose, which he did here as well.
“Not only can he dance, but he smells delicious,” said Ratner.
