Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri Khan seems to be extremely proud of her husband and she has all the reasons to flaunt her fondness for the 'Baadshah Khan' of Bollywood. 

Recently, Gauri shared a photo of Shah Rukh and captioned it, "At @wef, Davos with the Crystal award..."

In the photo, Shah Rukh has posed with Australian actress and theatre director Cate Blanchett at the World Economic Forum (WEF) summit in Davos. 

Shah Rukh, along with Cate Blanchett and musician Elton John was in Davos to receive the prestigious Crystal award for his efforts to rehabilitate acid attack survivors through his non-profit organisation, Meer Foundation.

Shah Rukh, known for his wit and charm, asked Cate Blanchett and Sir Elton John for a selfie saying, "There, I have embarrassed my children."

SRK was recognised for his attempts towards providing support to female victims of acid attacks and major burn injuries through medical treatment and legal aid, along with rehabilitation. He is also involved in the creation of special children's hospital wards, supporting childcare centres with free boarding for children undergoing cancer treatment.

On the stage, he thanked the ladies of his life for his values. "I want to thank my sister, my wife and my little daughter for bringing me up well and teaching me the value of requesting, sometimes imploring and begging a yes from a woman, instead of forcing it upon her," he said.

The Annual Crystal Awards ceremony, which opens the World Economic Forum summit in the Swiss ski resort, celebrates the achievements of outstanding artists who have shown exemplary commitment to improving the state of the world. The past awardees from India include Amitabh Bachchan, Mallika Sarabhai, AR Rahman, Shabana Azmi, Ravi Shankar and Amjad Ali Khan.
