The viewers of Asianet, a Kerala TV channel, chose him for the award. It was presented to SRK at the 16th edition of Asianet Film Awards held here Friday.

“It is a great honour for me to receive this award by Asianet. To be given the award and so much love by Mammootty and Mohanlal sir was an amazing feeling. They are the artists who have inspired me as an actor always,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.

The actor, who has been in showbiz for over two decades, says he has "always worked towards making or being a part of cinema that entertains all and is meant for all".

"It is humbling to know that it gets noticed in the same capacity. Awards always motivate me to work harder and make more cinema that brings a smile on everyone’s face,” added the 48-year-old.
