Shah Rukh Khan Explains Why He Hasn’t Won A National Award Yet

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who recently launched the Indian Academy Awards (IMA) in Mumbai, said that he loves awards and considers them to be collective applause for his work. The 51-year-old actor. shares the record for most Filmfare Best Actor wins with Dilip Kumar. He is to receive the Yash Chopra Memorial Award, an award instituted in the memory of the late director and producer, many of whose films SRK starred in. However, Shah Rukh Khan’s collection of trophies is missing one crucial honour – he’s never won the National Award and, he says, it’s because he hasn’t deserved to. Shah Rukh Khan’s critically acclaimed performances include his roles in Chak De! India and Swades but, at the launch event, he said his work so far hasn’t been National Award-worthy. “If I didn’t get it, I didn’t deserve it. I don’t think any of my performances so far deserve a National Award,” SRK said. On a lighter note, asked if he would retire after winning a National Award, Shah Rukh Khan quipped, “I think that’s why I haven’t received any yet.” SRK has 15 Filmfare Awards to his credit, eight of them for Best Actor. He also has an eye-watering array of trophies from several other film awards. “After working for some time in the industry, we all reach a point from where we need some kind of applause and recognition. My awards are the collective applause for the work that I have done that year or on a film,”
