Shah Rukh also thanked his sister Shehnaz Lalarukh Khan, wife Gauri and daughter Suhana. "I want to thank my sister, wife and my little daughter for bringing me up well and teaching me the value of requesting, sometimes imploring and sometimes even begging a yes from a women instead of forcing on her," he said before wrapping up his speech with a "Namaskar" and "Jai Hind".
