Shah Rukh Khan gets felicitated with ‘Game Changer’ Award in London for his unmatched contribution to Indian CinemaShah Rukh Khan was not just awarded with the Game Changer honor but a coffee table book titled 'Game Changers of India' was also unveiled at the summit.
King of Romance Shah Rukh Khan has added one more star to his already starry career. The actor has been felicitated with a “Game Changer for his Unmatched Contribution to Globalising Indian Cinema” award at the business summit in London, on Tuesday. It won’t be wrong to say that Shah Rukh has made the country proud on many global platforms that now, he has become synonymous with India for the whole world.
Shah Rukh graced the ET India - UK Strategic Conclave, a special business summit discussing the economic relations between India and UK, and was awarded for his unending contribution to the growth and recognition of the Indian cinema. He represented the entertainment industry there and lauded the Television industry for its brilliant work.
Shah Rukh said, “The growth for Indian films has been much smaller compared to the growth of television in India.The ratio of theatres to the audience area is still very small, we have very few theatres compared to the audience we can garner. In the interiors of India, there are not many screens for people to go and I think there is a huge market here for entrepreneurs to get into making low-cost theatres.”
The actor was not just awarded with the Game Changer honor but a coffee table book titled 'Game Changers of India' was also unveiled at the summit which features SRK along with other accomplished leaders.
Accepting this honour Shah Rukh said, “I take this opportunity to thank a lot of people, actors, actresses, and audiences, for allowing me to continue unencumbered with any idea that I had, they gave me the ability to just go ahead and give it a shot, try and go wrong if I may, and more often than not they allowed me to go wrong”. He further added, “Business is become about millions, targets and projections, though I fully respect the managerial capacity of business, but I like to think of it as the people who work with me allowed me the imaginarily capacity, they allowed me to imagine and they managed that imagination. So, when you become a game changer you cannot take it upon yourself, there are loads of people involved and the audience as well around the world accepts you doing the stuff you do and think it’s entertaining”.
Themed 'New Economy, New Rules' the global business summit was held in London today, wherein top CEOs, government officials and the global elite came together to focus on the India-UK relationship and future trade and business opportunities that could exist between the two countries. The conclave featured speakers and panelists of respected delegates from their respective fields, providing a platform to enable delegates to interact and exchange ideas.
After bagging the great honour, Shah Rukh is all ready to be back in the bay to his kids and wife. Sharing a picture of himself, the actor thanked Economic Times for the award and wrote, " Coming back home to change the game again. Now it’s time for Lego Blocks game with AbRam. Thx London & Economic Times for the honour."
