At the 4th National Yash Chopra Memorial Award Ceremony, King Khan saved his speech for the last after Shatrughan Sinha’s and as they say save the best for the last, is so true when Shah Rukh Khan started his.. His speech was exhilarating with the actor sharing his sentiments about filmmaker Yash Chopra, the Hindi film industry, talked about his flirting tendency with Rekha and Jaya Prada whom he looked up as one of the most beautiful women of the film industry !
The good looking actor said his one liners like Governor Sahib is here so I shouldn’t say this… which had the audience broke into laughter.
As the superstar received his award by the Governor, Diva Rekha who also was a recipient last year made him wear the gold bracelet as a part of the ritual.
Rekha recalled of an incident when both of them were travelling together for a show, Shah Rukh Khan had woken her up asking her to look out of the window to see the sunset.
Rekha returned the compliments showered on her by King Khan when Khan with his keen sense of humour said that he least expected a Rakhi from Rekha when she tied the gold bracelet around his wrist ! He went on to say that Sunset was only an escuse to see the beautiful actress and spend time with her and all in a good humour , the 51 year old actor says he would have liked to do just one more film with Yash Chopra ji.
