Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan was presented with an honorary belt in taekwondo and bestowed the title of an Honorary Ambassador for Culture and Tourism by the South Korean Government.

The 43-year-old actor has been conferred the 5th degree black belt of taekwondo.

“It is wonderful to wear this. I feel like I know taekwondo but a special thank to the Consulate General,” said Khan.

Earlier this year, Khan was presented an honorary doctorate in arts and culture by the Bedfordshire University in London. Last December, the Malaysian Government presented him with their highest honour, the title of ‘Datuk’.
