Shah Rukh to be Honoured by South Korean Government


Mumbai, Oct 15: The South Korean embassy will Thursday confer two special honours on Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan here.

"The Korean government has decided to confer an honorary belt in taekwondo to Shah Rukh and they are also giving him the title of an honorary ambassador for culture and tourism," Shah Rukh's spokesperson told IANS on phone from Mumbai.

The event will take place at the Taj Lands End hotel here.

According to his spokesperson, the talks for the honour had been underway for "a couple of days".

This will be Shah Rukh's second international honour this year after he was presented an honorary doctorate in arts and culture by Bedfordshire University in London for his contribution to culture in July.

For the doctorate, the 43-year-old was nominated by Routes to Roots, an NGO that works across the SAARC region to bring South Asian people together, in recognition of his exceptional achievement as a film actor and producer.
