Shah Rukh Khan addressed the audience and said: “Once again good evening and this is really nice. Yes, even more so, because I am in the wonderful company of Angelina. She has something to say to you.”

Angelina then said, “Namaste Indiawaalon (Hello, people of India).” Shah Rukh smiled and applauded and the crowd cheered for her too. She continued: “Thank you so much for having me here. It’s great to meet you all. It’s a pleasure.”

Shah Rukh and Angelina then announced the winner of the Best Actor (Female) category awarded to Aishwarya Rai for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999). As Aishwarya was not present at the event, the director of the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, came to the stage to accept the award on her behalf.

As Sanjay took delivery of the trophy, Shah Rukh joked, “We need to make sure Angelina knows this isn’t Aishwarya Rai.” Angelina burst out laughing. Shah Rukh also added: “This is the director of the film. I’m tired of taking awards on behalf of Aishwarya Rai, sibling whatever.” The awards ceremony took place at the Millennium Dome in London on June 24, 2000. The event was co-hosted by Anupam Kher and Yukta Mookhey.

Angelina, who is celebrating her 47th birthday on Saturday, has starred in many films, including Playing by Heart and Gia (1998), Gone in 60 Seconds (2000), Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life (2003), Sky Captain and the World Tomorrow (2004), Alexander (2004), Mr & Mrs Smith (2005), Beowulf (2007), A Mighty Heart (2007), Changeling (2008), Kung Fu Panda ( 2008), Wanted (2008), Salt (2010), The Tourist (2010), Maleficent (2014) and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019).
