Egyptian icon Yousra, AR Rahman, Kajol, and Priyanka Chopra too attended the event. On receiving a special honour at the second edition of the Red Sea Film Festival, Shah Rukh Khan said, “I am truly honored to receive this award from the Red Sea International Film Festival. It’s wonderful to be here among my fans from Saudi and the region who have always been huge supporters of my films. I’m looking forward to celebrating the region’s talent and being a part of this exciting film community.”
He further added, “Film is a unifier because it transits shared human experiences across cultures. You like a film because it stirs your emotions, be it in whatever language or culture it is from. And Thank God for subtitles. It brings all that is human to the fore and it shows perhaps better than any other art, how despite the immense diversity of the world we live in, our basic pursuits and emotions are the same.” Khan also mentioned that the cinema commemorates diversity and that it does not confine people from fully exploring differences.
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol attended the festival as it opened with their blockbuster film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. On the work front, the actor is gearing up to mesmerize his fans with Siddharth Anand’s directorial Pathaan, a film directed by Atlee titled Jawan, and Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki.
