Shah Rukh Khan has sent a video with an acceptance speech and thanking for an award apologizing for not being able to be present on the occasion.
The actor is in Budapest busy shooting for Ring.
The Global Icon of The Year 2016 award has been awarded to him at the recently held Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards in Mumbai.
He said in his speech, “I don’t think I am an icon because my dog at home doesn’t think I am an icon. My friends don’t think I am an icon, my family don’t think I am an icon and the best they think is I am someone who arrive at appointments always late. All I did was my thing, work hard and little bit of acting I did.”
He said that an icon is a statue in wood or engraving in wood, “so by that logic, being a global icon would imply for me, at best, that I am a beautiful etching on a barstool open for everyone to put their bums on, especially people from social media. I don’t think I can handle that.” The actor said for him an icon is like Mohammad Ali, Amitabh Bachchan and many more who have inspired him.
Calling himself the global icon of 2016, Shah Rukh said, “never wear thermals” especially the one that “are five inches below the crotch” even if you are dying of cold”. – CINEWS
