Shah Rukh and Priyanka have previously worked together in Don and Don 2. They are also rumoured to have dated for a short while, however, neither ever spoke about it.

After receiving the award, Shah Rukh said, “I am truly honoured to receive this award from the Red Sea International Film Festival. It's wonderful to be here among my fans from Saudi and the region who have always been huge supporters of my films. I'm looking forward to celebrating the region's talent and being a part of this exciting film community. Film is a unifier because it transits shared human experiences across cultures. You like a film because it stirs your emotions, be it in whatever language or culture it is from. And Thank God for subtitles. It brings all that is human to the fore and it shows perhaps better than any other art, how despite the immense diversity of the world we live in, our basic pursuits and emotions are the same.”

"Cinema celebrates diversity. It doesn't stop short of fully exploring differences. And doing so, in the most beautiful fashion, it teaches us not to be afraid of those differences," he added.

Also at the ceremony, Sharon Stone was a little starstruck on seeing Shah Rukh next to her. The sweet moent was also caught on camera as she exclaimed ‘oh my God’ on seeing her.
