It was an evening to cherish. Hardcore SRK fans gathered together under one roof for the first of its kind award function SRKFandom Awards organized by, and for the fans of the biggest superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Complete with a red carpet, the main focus of the event was to make the fans feel like celebrities themselves. And boy did they feel like one.
SRKUniverse, Shah Rukh Khan’s biggest fan club hosted SRKFandom Awards on 31st November, at Club Millennium Juhu in Mumbai. Muhammad Ashraf, the founder of SRKUniverse and Farhan Siddiqe, the admin head explained that the theme of the awards was to celebrate and honor the hard work that all the fans put in for their love for SRK.
These awards were being conducted on twitter for the past 3 years. This was the first time when they decided to go this big and host a function for the award ceremony. The fans did the voting and nominations on twitter since a month before.
The evening began with a video made from snippets of SRK films. Just by the sheer love that was in the air, even a non admirer would have turned into a SRK fan by the end. Every time SRK flashed on the screen, the atmosphere went electric as the crowd cheered and roared. I wonder what their reaction would have been if SRK himself had walked in. With innovative categories like Best Fan Boy, Fan Girl, Best Editor, Best Trend Setter, Best Number Cruncher, Best Jasoos and Best Fan Club, each and every fan had something to look forward to.
A Mumbai based dance troupe performed on SRK hits. Renowned singer Arvind Vegda, famous for his Guajarati rendition of Fan Anthem also performed to entertain the crowds. Ex Bigg Boss contestant Ajaz Khan graced the event with his presence.
The event was held in such a way that fans who had travelled from all over the world could also celebrate SRK’s birthday on 2nd November in Mumbai. And indeed people from countries like Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, France, US had travelled to Mumbai. All for the love of one man.

And in his trademark SRK style stole the hearts of all present there.
