Created in 1802 by Napoleon Bonaparte, the honour is the highest award given for outstanding service to France, regardless of the nationality of the recipient. SRK is the second Bollywood celebrity after Amitabh Bachchan to receive this honour by the French government.

Shah Rukh also said a few lines in French during the award ceremony here. Meanwhile, King Khan had a successful eye surgery and the Jab Tak Hai Jaan actor read lines without wearing specs. He even said that the eye surgery was a success and now he doesn't need to wear specs to read anymore.

Even at this special occasion, SRK showed his charm, enjoyed with everyone and looked really happy!
