The Badshah of Bollywood,  Shah Rukh Khan has been honoured with the prestigious award of outstanding contribution to Indian cinema at the fifth annual ‘The Asian Awards’ held at London’s Grosvenir House Hotel.

The presence of global celebrities, including One Direction’s former band member Zayn Malik, Casey Batchelor, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Anna Williamson, increased the fashion and style quotient of the Asian Awards, hosted by fashion icon, Gok Wan.

Dressed in formal black tuxedo coupled with a crisp white shirt and black bow tie, SRK said in a statement, “I say this very often that my stardom belongs to most South East Asians who reside abroad and have made the Indian cinema and me known around the world. I congratulate all the winners at the Asian Awards as well. There is so much talent and so many achievers around Asia, whether it be Dr. Amar Bose, the Hinduja Brothers or Zayn Malik. I am glad to have been a part of such a wonderful celebration of hard work by people in different fields with similar passion.”

The Asian Award was founded by Paul Sagoo who envisioned to celebrate the achievements of individuals born in or with direct origin from Pan-Asia.

On the other hand, Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara won the award for Outstanding Contribution to Sports. Comedian,  actor and broadcaster,  Sanjeev Bhaskar,  fetched the award for Outstanding Achievement in Television.  Zayn Malik was also awarded for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

  • As the reach of a star is growing at a rapid pace, the concept of stardom is changing and affecting its longevity, says superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
  • He has clocked over 25 years in Indian showbiz and continues to rule the hearts of millions.

Shah Rukh Khan was overwhelmed with His Birthday Wishes

On his 52nd birthday on Thursday, Shah Rukh Khan told the media: “Honestly, I think the longevity of stardom will be less in future, unlike our time, because of the simple logic of faster reach to the audience. I think the concept of superstardom will change. In fact, it has started changing.

“Earlier, it used to take three months for a film to get released all over India. Now it takes three seconds for a film to reach our mobile phone. For me, from when I made a debut to becoming a star, it took 10 years because people took some time to know me, then slowly they became fans… Now, for a young actor, it just takes a year to gain popularity.

“So, the longevity of 30 years will go down a bit. Things are going to come and go faster.”

Shah Rukh Khan also pointed at the possibility of having a musical superstar.

“Like they have in the West… like Chris Martin… Because music is getting celebrated beyond films, goes independent on digital platforms. There will be a digital superstar. The concept of stardom will change with time,” he added.

The actor was overwhelmed with the “sea of love” — the crowd outside his house on his birthday — and umpteen wishes on social media for his special day.

Talking about how digital entertainment was posing a challenge for the cinema world, Shah Rukh said: “I think when it comes to cinematic experience, we can offer a much bigger canvas because that is possible through digital shooting, camera, 3D and other technology.

“What we can do today with cinema is unfathomable. In the near future, we can experience interactive cinema, where we all can watch a story on big screen with a different experience. Therefore, I think cinema won’t die, but a new way of experiencing cinema will come.”(IANS)

Karan Johar recalled his first meeting with Shah Rukh Khan

Director Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan recently produced movie Ittefaq starring Sonakshi Sinha and Sidharth Malhotra. Both the producers decided not t hold promotional events in a shopping mall as it would lead to the revelation of movie’s suspense.

Recently in a small promotional event of Ittefaq, Karan Johar recalled his first meeting with Shah Rukh Khan in the office of director Anand Mahendroo to audition for his show Indraprastha. There he saw Shah Rukh Khan sitting on a sofa sipping tea. As the director Anand was in his shooting Karan and SRK had to wait for his work to get over.

Meanwhile, SRK was sitting and enjoying tea after tea, as soon as Anand’s shoot was over,  Anand came and walked to SRK and told him that it was a bit late on his part to meet him. SRK replied in a very soft tone ‘Nahi nahi koi baat nahi. I love the tea in your office. It is really delicious, and thus I could relish and gulp a few cups. But I waited only because I wanted to tell you that I will not be able to participate in this show. Thanks a lot’

Director Anand was shocked to know that Shah Rukh waited for four hours just to say NO to his show. This is how he met Shah Rukh for the first time.
