Shahrukh Khan was the chief guest at the 16th Asianet Film Awards, which was held in Dubai recently. The event was aired on Asianet channel on Saturday and Sunday (Jan 25, 26), which was indeed a visual treat for all the audience. In the last moment, Shahrukh praised the prides of Kerala - Mohanlal and Mammootty!
Shahrukh Khan said that he is so surprised seeing the acting
skills of Mohanlal and Mammootty and said that he can never act
like them or even compete with them at any time. He also said that
he has learnt from them so many things and most importantly he
learned from them that actors have to be more humane and simple in
nature, like how Mohanlal and Mammootty are!
It was a great compliment for the actors indeed, but then they shared their happiness by shaking their leg with Shahrukh Khan for his 'Lungi dance' song, from the movie Chennai Express. It was a great sight to watch the three on stage, dancing together.
Shahrukh Khan even danced to the tunes sung by Mohanlal. SRK danced with Priyamani for the song 'Aattumanal payalil...', showing his love to Mohanlal and even tried to do Mohanlal's most appreciated dance step on stage, but failed!
SRK was gifted by his song 'Tujhe dekha toh yeh jaana sanam...' by Mohanlal, by singing it live along with Rimi Tomy. Shahrukh bowed his head in front of Mohanlal, making it a special moment indeed.
Mammootty was awarded the Best Actor by both Mohanlal and Shahrukh Khan. Mammootty said that the moment will always be cherished by him and that it is indeed a great moment for him as an actor and will try to improve in doing more good roles. Shahrukh bid adieu with a chain song of all his popular songs, that was also a good treat visually.
