IMG SRC: The Economic Times (SRK-Crystal)
Shahrukh Khan recently received Crystal award by World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos for his philanthropic work through his NGO “Meer Foundation” towards acid attack victims. He was honored with the award along with two international peers Cate Blanchett and Sir Elton John.
During his acceptance speech he prioritized the women in his life. He criticized the hideous acts such as acid attacks on women. He explained what struggles a woman has to go through not only from outside but from within. In his speech, he also mentions that he is amazed by the strength women have to break the shackles and achieve their dreams. To add his dose of wit to an otherwise serious and focussed acceptance speech he childishly asked for a selfie with his co-awardees.
He talked about access to resources for people in general and mentions “We, the powerful, need to get out of the way, and break open the access to the resources”. His speech was such a motivation to all the powerful members of the audience at WEF, Davos.
Towards the end, he thanked his sister Shehnaz Lalarukh Khan, his wife, Gauri Khan and his daughter Suhana Khan, for teaching him the value of requesting and sometimes begging for a yes from a woman.
Filmywhisky congratulates SRK for the award and we all thank him for his work towards a very important cause.
