Shah Rukh Khan humbled by the tribute at SFIFF.
Shah Rukh Khan who was recently honoured at the 60th edition of the San Francisco International Film Festival was overwhelmed with the gesture.
SRK is the first ever Indian actor to get such a special tribute and was humbled to see the response from the audiences.
The actor’s 2010 film screening of My Name is Khan was held as part of the line-up of films at the festival.
When asked Shah Rukh about the special tribute at the prestigious San Francisco International Film Festival the actor shares, “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. 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, there was a conversation that took place between SRK and Hollywood director and producer Brett Ratner. Brett was all in praise for Shah Rukh and also expressed his wish to work with him in a Hollywood project.
Shah Rukh Khan, whose first film of this year, Raees, also became the year’s first film to enter the 100-crore club, is currently busy shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s next directorial opposite Anushka Sharma.
