Shah Rukh Khan Crystal Award
Written by Varsha Pillai
Shah Rukh Khan was awarded the prestigious Crystal Award at the World Economic Forum Summit held at Davos in Switzerland. The award was bestowed upon him for his exemplary commitment to improving the state of the world.

Khan is the founder of non-profit Meer Foundation, which provides aid to female victims of acid attacks and major burn injuries through medical treatment, legal support, vocational training, rehabilitation and livelihood support.

Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, actress Cate Blanchett and Sir Elton John were also awarded the Crystal Award.

Cate Blanchett received the award for her leadership in raising awareness about the refugee crisis and Sir Elton John received the award for his leadership in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Receiving the award, Khan praised Blanchett and pulled out a witty moment from thin air when he asked Blanchett publicly for the selfie. He sent the audience into a fit of laughter when he quipped that it may leave his children embarrassed.

He extended his gratitude to WEF for the award and ended his speech with a namaskar and the slogan ‘Jai Hind’.

Upon reaching Davos, Khan recreated the Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge moment amongst the Swiss Alps and posted a picture with the caption, “Switzerland main aake yeh na kiya toh kya kiya…?”

Shah Rukh Khan would be next seen in the upcoming movie Zero, where he portrays a vertically challenged man. Directed by Aanand L Rai, the film also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
