There's hardly anything that the 'Enigma personified' Shahrukh Khan does and it doesn't make for national headlines. Well, the latest one to his ever glowing and ever growing kitty is of him being conferred the title of 'Datuk' by the Governor of Malaysia's southern Malacca State. For the uninitiated, 'Datuk' is equivalent of the prestigious British knighthood.

The title just couldn't have come to this man any later as he is nearing the grand gala release of his film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Even though the title did raise a few oppositions from the local residents stating that it was unjust to be conferring the title only on SRK, while leaving out many deserving ones! But as they say in Bollywood "Honi ko kaun taal sakta hai", SRK became the first of his ilk to be conferred a Malaysian title. Dressed up in a chic traditional black and gold Malay outfit (Baju Melayu and samping), and headgear, he received the title of 'Datuk' from the Governor of Malaysia's southern Malacca State, Mohamad Khalil Yaacob.

The reason as to why the Malacca authorities chose SRK to be given the title was because six of his movies were shot in the historical State, thus, giving a boost to tourism. SRK started off his celluloid romance with Malacca with his film One 2 Ka 4 (which co-starred the bubbly Juhi Chawla). The said city was also recently named as a heritage city by the UNESCO.

After the grand ceremony, SRK announced that he would star in a new movie My Name is Khan, that would help spread the message that Islam does not support terrorism, but is something that would make clear that Islam does not in any which way tell you to be violent. SRK, on his part also furthered that "I think the whole concept of jihad, the whole concept of warring needs to be explained as Allah meant it to be in the Koran... it is an attempt to try and do that in an entertaining way."

One word of advice from us is that the next time you happen to see a SRK film, and you see the cast and credits reading 'Starring Datuk Shahrukh Khan' do not be surprised as, according to the title, SRK will henceforth be addressed as Datuk Shahrukh Khan. C'mon, guys tell us is there anything that Shahrukh Khan't!

With the kind of awards and citations that this guy is getting, plus the way he manages his shoots, commercials, friends, and the unforgettable business acumen-ed IPL matches, we really wonder as to if this man's day really consist of 24 hours or are the rumors of his day being 28 hours really true! Even at the age of 43, SRK looks as fresh as a morning sunflower even as he romances the debutante Anushka Sharma in his film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi! Can anyone just squeeze in and get his secret out for his ever-glowingly youthful skin!
