In a video shared by a fanclub, Shah Rukh appeared at the event in an all-black avatar. He sported a backcombed hairstyle. He received the award for the act of ‘contribution to the cultural scene and reproductivity in the field of writing and creativity’ as per the actor’s speech at the event.
A part of his speech read, “All of us, no matter where we live, what colour we are, what religion we follow or what songs we dance to… thrive in a culture of love, peace and compassion.” During his time on stage, Shah Rukh also recreated his iconic, arms-stretched-out pose, from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. In another clip, he treated the audience with his iconic dialogue—Itni Shiddat se maine tumhe paane ki koshish ki hai, ke har zarre ne mujhe tumse Milane ki saazish ki hai. Kehte hain ki… agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho to puri kayanat usey tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai, from his film Om Shanti Om, which recently clocked 15 years. He also added dialogues from Baazigar.
Reacting to all the visuals from the event, a fan wrote on Twitter, “He is worthy of all the awards.” “I watched the interview and he was so sweet. But he is right! We love him because he commits to everything that he does,” added another one. Someone else, “Just King being King.”
