Shah Rukh Khan will be attending the 10th Indian Film Festival of Melbourne as the chief guest. He will be honoured for his contribution to Indian cinema. About being a part of the film fest, SRK told Hindustan Times, “I’m honoured and delighted to accept the invitation from the Victorian government and the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. An industry of our magnitude and diversity deserves to be celebrated with great passion and fervour, which is what the festival embodies.”
