    Kuala Lumpur (ANI): Indian superstar shahrukh khan will officially receive his Datukship on December 6. State secretary Datuk Omar Kaseh had confirmed that the Bollywood hunk will be conferred the Malaysian title of 'Datuk', akin to the British knighthood. And he's expected to receive the honour in traditional Malaysian attire.

    The actor will be arriving at Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 7.30 am before making his way to the state. Kaseh said that the actor will receive his Darjah Mulia Seri Melaka award at a ceremony at 10 a.m. at Dewan Seri Negri, Ayer Keroh, in the presence of 1,000 invited guests.

    "He will be conferred the Darjah Mulia Seri Melaka (DMSM), which carries the title 'Datuk', by Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob in conjunction with his 70th birthday. Shahrukh will be wearing a black Baju Melayu for the ceremony. We will be inviting about 1,000 guests to the investiture," the New Straits Times Online quoted him, as saying.

    The actor is being awarded the DMSM for indirectly promoting the state to the world through six movies. He is immensely popular among Malaysians and had shot the film One 2 Ka 4 and a song sequence from his blockbuster Don in Malacca.
