Our PM said ‘Hum yahan apne logon ka danka bajane aaye hain’ (We are going to make our people famous). He pointed out globalisation is losing sheen and India was the only bright spot. India can reclaim its hub back very soon,” Shah Rukh said.

The Raees star heaped praises on Prime Minister Modi’s presence, especially his command over Hindi, and said that his speech is a matter of pride for the country. “It is a matter of pride for all of us, that for the first time in 20 years, we have a PM who came and represented our country at the global level,” the Badshah of Bollywood said.

Earlier on Monday, Shah Rukh received the 24th Crystal Award for “his leadership in championing children’s and women’s rights in India”.
