At the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting in Davos, on January 22nd, Shah Rukh Khan is going to be honoured with an award at the organisation's 24th Annual Crystal Awards. This will be for his work towards championing children's and women's rights in India.

The actor will receive the honour at the 24th Annual Crystal Awards along with Cate Blanchett and Sir Eton John. Each of them in their own way has taken action to uphold human dignity. "It will serve as a marker of the intention of the Meeting and as a reminder to us all of our responsibility to act with respect, generosity and compassion".
