Chief Minister explains Shah Rukh Khan’s Datukship

Chief Minister explains Shah Rukh Khans Datukship
By MARTIN CARVALHO

MALACCA: The Malacca Governors 70th birthday title award ceremony here was abuzz with excitement with many expecting to see popular Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan receive his Datukship on Saturday.

However, the international star and heartthrob was not to be seen at the Dewan Seri Hall in Ayer Keroh. Efforts are still being made to get him to come to Malaysia to collect his award.

The Datukship award has been questioned by various parties, including politicians and diehard fans.

Some say the actor did not deserve the award as he hardly knows where Malacca is while others say he promoted Malacca in his songs and movies.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the decision to confer the title on the actor was based on a suggestion by former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin to Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob recently as a means to further promote Malacca owing to the fact that the actor had shot a movie scene here several years ago.

He said the movie One 2 ka 4 was shot at the A Famosa Resort in Alor Gajah in 2001.

This resulted in many people visiting Malacca since then. The award is given in recognition of this, he said after the awards presentation ceremony on Saturday.

Mohd Ali said awarding international artistes was also a good way to promote the state and country as a location for movies.

Phuket Island is famous as an international tourist destination because of a James Bond movie, he said, adding that Shah Rukh Khans movies have penetrated the European, US and Middle Eastern markets.

He said Daim is making arrangements to bring the actor here to receive the award in a special ceremony.

A “Grandfather” Title for this Bollywood star just bcos he ever filmed a movie at A Famosa before??? Its so pathetic and stupid… I don’t think the title mean anything to him at all…
A Famosa is already a famous and historical place and surely got lots of visitors visiting the place whenever they are in Malacca. How about Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta Jones for the film Entrapment which was shooted at Twin Tower? Don’t they more famous than Shah Rukh Khan?
It keep me wondering why our country have such simple-minded and brainless politicians??? :roll: :shock:

Not Logic

Our politicians have Pea sized brain. This SRK made tons of $$$ from the film, using our beautiful locations and did not really promote our country. Basically he is reaping the $$$$ for himself. Did he donate part of the proceeds for charity in Malaysia? If he did, then he has done the right thing.

dasolve also should become datuk…he promote miri food bah…hahaha…

Now Shiela Majid given pangkat Datuk by Sultan Pahang… wow it’s good to singer or artist nowadays you can be Datuk easily… But most of Dato out there they only buy their title to get Dato … at RM6000 like that I guess … If you’ve got a lot of money, so u can buy pangkat Datuk…

this movie also pulled tens of thousand of visitors to Melacca & Pulau Redang from Taiwan, Hong Kong & China. Any datuships for the actors? Two of them, Tan Kheng Seong & Michael Wong, are actually Malaysian! :lol:

high school musical is basically bollywood wannabee wit all the songs, dances n costumes!
correct?
hheheehheh

read kenny sia’s blog.
he recommended jessica alba for datukship for promoting swak!
funny!

Why not David Archuleta, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Diana Ross or Spice Girls to promote Sarawak then haha!!

fuc*k off lah this all gov
