SRK is now Datuk Shahrukh Khan


Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan on Saturday became the first Indian movie star to be conferred a prestigious Malaysian title. Actor Shah Rukh Khan (L) receives the title of ‘Datuk’ from Malacca state Governor Mohammad Khalil Yaakob in Malacca.

Wearing a traditional black and gold Malay outfit (Baju Melayu and samping) and headgear, Khan received the title of “Datuk” (equivalent to British Knighthood) from the governor of Malaysia’s southern Malacca state.

Baju Melayu is similar to a kurta pajama, while ‘Samping’ is a piece of cloth men tie around the waist and which falls to the length of the long shirt. (AP Photo)
