The above picture is not legendary because it has three bigwigs of the world entertainment industry, but because, together they stand true and strong for women’s rights and gender equality across the world. Shah Rukh Khan was recently awarded 24th Crystal Award for ‘his leadership in championing children’s and women’s rights in India’ by the World Economic Forum and were one of the guests along with Singer Elton John and Actress Cate Blanchett!

Apart from his well recited speech, he is one personality who can turn the most bleak and bland shows and appearances entertaining with his wit and charisma. And being his usual charming and funny on Monday, he left the audience into peals of laughter when he asked actress Cate Blanchett (Thor Ragnarok fame) for a selfie publicly and immediately said that it may leave his children embarrassed.

Apart from being the King Khan of Bollywood, he is also known for being the founder of the non-profit Meer Foundation, which provides support to female victims of acid attacks and major burn injuries through medical treatment, legal aid, vocational training, rehabilitation and livelihood support.

“I am genuinely and deeply grateful for this honour. It is indeed a privilege to be in the company of two phenomenal and extraordinary human beings and talent, Cate Blanchett and Sir Elton John,” Khan said.  After thanking the WEF for the award, Khan finished his speech with namaskar and ‘Jai Hind’. Earlier he tweeted about him being in Switzerland and doing his signature arm stretch. Check it out-
