Jab Harry Met Sejal actress while back established Meer Foundation, an organization which works extensively towards empowering women subjected to acid violence. The actor has helped set up specialized children’s hospital wards in the nation and also helped with childcare centers which provide free boarding for children undergoing cancer treatment. The Actor also thanked his sister, wife Gauri and daughter Suhana for bringing him up well and educating him the value of requesting.

During the speech, Shah Rukh Khan was quoted saying that, “Actors are renowned narcissists. No matter how much we pretend to not to believe in external beauty, we tend to be obsessed with it, one way or another. Perhaps being surrounded by this obsession of beauty, a few years ago I came across a lady who had been brutalized by an acid attack and it kind of changed my life, or the perspective of it at least. To disfigure a woman by throwing acid on her face, to me, is one of the crudest acts of subjugation imaginable.”

Versatile actor also gave an insight into the need for power reversal and said that “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.” Post acknowledging the World Economic Forum for the award, Shah Rukh Khan finished his speech with namaskar and Jai Hind.
