Shahrukh Khan featured in some of the biggest hits helmed by filmmaker Yash Chopra and now he has been selected for an award instituted in the memory of late Bollywood legend.

SRK will receive the fourth National Yash Chopra Memorial Award. The award jury includes Chopra’s wife Pamela, filmmaker Boney Kapoor, Simi Garewal, Padmini Kohlapuri, Subbarami Reddy, Any and Shashi Ranjan. Earlier the award has been given to Lata Mangeshkar, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha.

Pamela said that he was extremely close to Chopra. “The award is given to those who are icons, who we know are legends like we gave to Lata Mangeshkar and Amitabh Bachchan. Last year, it was Rekha, who will be a legend tomorrow and same is the case with Shah Rukh. Also, Yash was very close to Shah Rukh and they both were extremely fond of each other,” Pamela told reporters here.

“Shah Rukh is not just one of the biggest stars of our film industry but also known globally. Despite the onslaught of action heroes and actors famous in other genres, Shah Rukh has maintained his position for the longest time. Off screen, he is a very humble person. He is humility personified and very hardworking,” she said.
