Shah Rukh to receive Legion d’Honneur – France’s highest award


France has decided to honour Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan with Legion of France, its highest distinction – civilian or military. The French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, will travel to Mumbai next week to confer the award of Officier de la Legion d’Honneur (Officer of the Legion of Honour) on Khan for his contribution to cinema. The only Bollywood actor to have received the same honour was Amitabh Bachchan in 2007.
