Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was at his wittiest best in Davos on Monday when he asked actress Cate Blanchett for a selfie publicly and immediately quipped that it may leave his children embarrassed, sending the audience into peals of laughter.
Khan received the 24th Crystal Award on Monday at the World Economic Forum in Davos for `his leadership in championing children's and women's rights in India`.
English singer Sir Elton John and Australian actress Cate Blanchett were also honoured at the event.
`I am genuinely and deeply grateful for this honour. It is indeed a privilege to be in the company of two phenomenal and extraordinary human beings and talent, Cate Blanchett and Sir Elton John,` Khan said.
He talked extensively about his social initiative, which he has named after his father, and the reason for the same.
The 52-year-old cine star also thanked his late mother, wife and his daughter for inspiring him. After thanking the WEF for the award, Khan finished his speech with namaskar and 'Jai Hind'.
He was presented the award for `his leadership in championing children's and women's rights in India`.
SRK expressed his gratitude on social media and wrote, "Honoured to receive the @wef's 24th Crystal Award, together with @eltonofficial and Cate Blanchett. My fan moment!!
