Shah Rukh Khan Award Fiasco - Pathetic Lies From An Ambitious Bluffmaster

The Malacca Governor’s 70th birthday title award ceremony here was abuzz with excitement with many expecting to see popular Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan receive his Datukship on Saturday.

However, the international star and heartthrob was not to be seen at the Dewan Seri Hall in Ayer Keroh. Efforts are still being made to get him to come to Malaysia to collect his award.

The Datukship award has been questioned by various parties, including politicians and diehard fans.

Some say the actor did not deserve the award as “he hardly knows where Malacca is” while others say he “promoted Malacca in his songs and movies.”

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the decision to confer the title on the actor was based on a suggestion by former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin to Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob recently as a means to further promote Malacca owing to the fact that the actor had shot a movie scene here several years ago.

He said the movie One 2 ka 4 was shot at the A Famosa Resort in Alor Gajah in 2001.

This resulted in many people visiting Malacca since then. The award is given in recognition of this,” he said after the awards presentation ceremony on Saturday.

Mohd Ali said awarding international artistes was also a good way to promote the state and country as a location for movies.

“Phuket Island is famous as an international tourist destination because of a James Bond movie,” he said, adding that Shah Rukh Khan’s movies have penetrated the European, US and Middle Eastern markets.

He said Daim is making arrangements to bring the actor here to receive the award in a special ceremony. (The Star Online)

*****
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam must take us all for fools. The cavalier manner in which this award was decided upon is appalling. How can he claim to have listened to the words of a known crook like Daim? And the idiotic justification that the actor had shot a movie scene in Malacca several years ago!!

Do you think that the umnoputeras will ever change? And to know that Ali Rustam is on his way up in the party hierarchy is frightening. God bless Malacca, Malaysia and Shah Rukh Khan.

Why are the Malaysian people blaming Shah Rukh Khan for this award? I see so many nasty blogs from your countries the last few days condemning him for this award. He knew nothing about it and has nothing to do with some stranger picking him to get this award. Why call him a liar and all these nasty things just because some person in your country wanted to give him an award no one here ever even heard of?

I didn't know that this crook and plunderer of our assets like MAS is still lurking in the background. Hoping to make a comeback through Ali Rectum perhaps?

I don’t know this khan fello that much and i don’t watch such movies. But to me the unsung datuks and tan sris are the silent BolehLand people who do great deeds quietly. Money fame and fortune seem to taint the datukship so what’s so surprising that it is awarded to those who meet that criteria.. It’s a insult to Malacca that the khan-fACTOR promoted their city to the world. See No Can Do for a Khan Can Get! http://www.jonathan66-my.blogspot.com... will sean and cathy get a tan sri since they shot in kl and malacca.. two versus one state? :P

Anonymous,
It is fine to give award titles to foreigners, now that every politician in UNMO is a Datuk, there is no one else to award anymore. Thieves and corrupted politicians has all been awarded. The maybe in future we can invite Mickey Mouse to receive a Datukship as well.

These 2 items below tell us all we need to know about this motherf**ker. Poor gullible Indians like Pooja and their "heroes".
I'd like to meet him too and give him some payback.

JODHPUR, India (AFP) - "The court held Salman Khan guilty of killing black bucks, but all eight other accused in the case have been acquitted," Khan's lawyer Ditesh Mehta told AFP on Friday.

He said the court was likely to decide on the sentence later in the day.

Mehta said the actor could face up to three years in jail and a fine of 25,000 rupees (566 dollars).

Khan, who enjoys a massive following in India, was accused of poaching the protected species in the Jodhpur district of Rajasthan in September, 1998.

Khan is no stranger to controversy.

The actor also faces charges of manslaughter following a road accident in 2002 which allegedly left one person dead and four injured.

The actor has denied charges that he was at the wheel, drunk and had no license when his car ran over people sleeping on a sidewalk in western Mumbai, home to the country's film industry.

Yes, it's not Shah Rukh Khan's fault if these idiots want to give an Award! However, please also note he never bothered to attend the ceremony. I don't blame him, what does he need a "datukship" for?
These UMNO idiots are just trying to gain some votes & some publicity I guess.
