Shah Rukh Khan attended his friend and the 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohammad's birthday and he was also awarded the prestigious BrandLaureate Legendary Award. The superstar was given this honour by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation for his contributions to the Bollywood film industry and as India's foremost brand ambassador. Shah Rukh was humbled by the honour given to him by Founder of Lord's Tailor Mr Robert Loh, President of The BrandLaureate Dr KK Johan, and Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohammad.


''It is an honour to be given the Brandlaureate Legendary Award. It is always a pleasure to be amongst friends and to be given so much love and motivation to do better,'' said Shahrukh.

The BrandLaureate Legendary Award has been earlier given to the likes of Dr Nelson Mandela, Nobel Laureate recipient Mohammad Yunus, Ratan Tata, late Steve Jobs, Marck Zuckerburg, Michael Schumacher and more.

In 2008 Shah Rukh had become the first Indian actor to be conferred with the prestigious Malaysian title of Datuk (equivalent of the British Knighthood) by the governor of Malaysia's southern state of Malacca for promoting tourism through his movies in that region. Earlier this year, Shah Rukh became the first Indian film industry's personality to be honoured with the prestigious Chubb fellowship at Yale University and very recently he was honoured with LE'toile d'Or by Mohammaed VI, the King of Morocco during 12th International Film Festival of Marrakech twice in a row.
