Shahrukh Khan accepts Datukship. Now we know from whom did they get their advice from (read here).
MALACCA: Bollywood heartthrob Shah Rukh Khan has accepted the Darjah Mulia Seri Melaka (DMSM) award from Yang diPertua Negri (or governor) Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob, which carries the title of Datuk.
“He will try to make it in November but the date of the ceremony has yet to be fixed".
This is the best part. "Mohd Ali reiterated that arrangements for the actor’s trip here is being made through former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin, who was the one who mooted the idea."
I don't know whether the former Finance Minister just making fun out of them or just saying out loud in jest, but they really bought the splendid idea.
The people of Malacca must've been in a jolly good mood to welcome their new Datuk this coming November or is it just my thought?
