Shah Rukh Khan who was recently honoured at the 60th San Francisco International Film Festival was overwhelmed by the felicitation. SRK is the first ever Indian actor to get such a special tribute. The actor’s My Name is Khan was screened as part of the line-up of films at the festival.
“Very humbling, as I’ve said before. Also I know why I’m given a tribute like this. First of course thanks to the San Francisco Film Festival. But I think, you know when I reached there, so many people from our country. I know it’s their love which kind of attracts people, the diaspora too, you know, convince people around in different cities around the world that Indian films are important,” SRK said. And he added, “So, like I’ve always said, I just happen to be in the right place at the right time and I’m getting the right kind of love. It’s very humbling and very wonderful to see so many people screaming and shouting and watching My Name Is Khan again. So I felt very grateful.”
At the event, Shah Rukh had a conversation Hollywood director and producer Brett Ratner who was all in praise for the megastar. Shah Rukh also expressed his wish to work with him in a Hollywood project.
