Shahrukh Khan receives Yash Chopra Award

Shahrukh Khan has received the 4th National Yash Chopra Memorial Award. The actor has worked in many films directed by the veteran filmmaker.

Shah Rukh is the fourth recipient of the award, which is given to a Bollywood personality for his or her outstanding contribution to cinema. Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar and Rekha are the previous awardees.

Calling the award the biggest honour of his life, Shah Rukh, in his acceptance speech, said, “This is one of the most important evenings of my life. I am very emotional. Yash Chopra has single-handedly created my career. It is a strange circle that I am receiving an award, which honours him and is in his memory, and I am who I am because of what Yash Chopra made me do.”

Speaking to the media minutes before the ceremony, Shah Rukh admitted that this is one honour he cannot take credit for.

“I am extremely undeserving but I am happy that the jury considered me for it. The reason for this is genuinely a gracious, wonderful and fantastic feeling that the whole family has given me over the years. This can be the only reason for this. It can’t be my talent. So, it feels really special to receive this award. It is very personal. I can’t express how emotional it is for me. It is a personal moment for me, having worked with him for 20 years, right from when I started and then to lose him as we walked along the path of filmmaking… it is emotional for me,” the actor said.

SRK has worked with Yash Chopra in film like Darr, Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Veer-Zara and Jab Tak Hai Jaan. “Yash ji was very basic and simple. He never allowed the craft to take over his art. He made films from his heart. Even today when I work with directors, we talk more about Yash ji than the films that I am working on with them,” Shah Rukh revealed.

The actor received the award from Tamil Nadu governor C Vidyasagar Rao, while Rekha made him wear a gold bracelet, as accompanying token. Shah Rukh was also awarded Rs 10 lakh. Besides Rekha, other guests at the event included Yash’s wife Pamela, Jayaprada, Shatrughan Sinha, Simi Garewal and Padmini Kohlapuri.

        1. Kisne kha national award fare hai agar aisa hota to saif ko hum tum ke liye award nahi milta aur last 20 year main jis trah kmal hsan naseer saheb ko ignore kiya ya phir mera naam joker ke liye rishi kapoor ko award milna sahi hai kya sachhai ye hai ki national award politician ke haath main hota hai o jisse chahe dila de.

  2. Kabhi national award toh meet nahi sakta
    Yahin chote mote awards se khus rahta hai yeh bakra

    1. This is wrong. Yash Raj Films founded in the year of 1970 and of course before Darr (1993) it was well established film making company.SRK is a important ornament of Yash Raj Films but remember Yash Raj itself is a Brand.

      1. ya u r right but growth YRF films made on all on SRK films
        DAAR ---Dil to pagal hai-- DDLJ- Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi --MOHABATTIEN- VEER ZARA - CHAK DE INDIA - JTHJ etc .
        then after it becomes Biggest Banner .
        Then made other bigger films but pillars are created bu SRK Films .
        Recently we have seen result in Befikre it was directed by Aditya Chopra .{Flop}
        Result we all have seen .

    1. sidha bol do paise khilaya....hahahaha..yakin mano koi yakin nahi karega tumhari bat ka.....

  3. Very humble personality. He really deserved this award coz srk is the familier face of yash raj films after the legend Amit ji......

  4. Well and truly deserved award for his contribution to Hindi cinema in the last 25 yrs. He and Aamir are a cut above others in acting skills.

  5. yeh SRK hi tha jis ne yash banner ko wo maqam dilaya jo kisi or actor ne nahi dilaya DDLJ, DARR,Dil Tou Pagal hai,Veer Zara, ne jo business kia uski kamayi aaj tak yash banner kha raha hai Aamir khan ne tou Ego ki waja se Darr ko reject kia tha yash chopra ne SRk ko respect di SRK ne YAsh chopra ko respect di

  6. agr award Ranvir singh ko mile tou theik Agr award ranbhir kapoor ko miley theik agr award Aamir khan ko mile theik magr jaise he koi award SRk ko mile tou tum log rona shuru kr dete ho tum jis marzi actor ke fan ho magr her fAN KO HR ACTOR KI RESPECT KRNI CHAHIYE JO FAN KISI KI RESPECT NAHI KRTA WO PHIR KOI FAN NAHI HOTA

  7. i always carry a confused, amazed and amused look whenever srk gets an award.. later laugh it off.... :D
