Davos [Switzerland], Jan 24 (ANI): Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan on Tuesday said that the new policies proposed in the Fintech policy would lead to creation of a digital environment, which would be favourable for the country.

Sharing the dais with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, after the unveiling of the Magnetic Maharashtra summit, Shah Rukh said, "New policies will create a digital environment, which will be favourable to young India. Our country will be technologically advanced and lakhs of youths would be benefitted as well."

Espousing himself as an example of how he fulfilled his dreams as an actor, Shah Rukh added, "I'm a living example of how someone can come to Mumbai and fulfill his dreams. I always say I have two mothers - Delhi, which gave birth to me, and Maharashtra, which helped me grow."

The actor maintained that he came to Davos to represent Maharashtra and expressed interest that he would be ready to participate and represent the state through summits and conferences.

On being asked about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's historic speech, at the World Economic Forum (WEF), earlier in the day, Shah Rukh asserted that he was inspired by his speech, especially on terrorism and his plans to make the country a top business destination, as well as ensuring better standards of living.

The actor also praised Prime Minister Modi's decision on making India a global business hub, despite the slowdown of the world economy in recent times.

"Our PM said 'Hum yahan apne logon ka danka bajane aaye hain' (We are going to make our people famous). He pointed out globalisation is losing sheen and India was the only bright spot. India can reclaim its hub back very soon.", Shah Rukh said.

The Bollywood actor heaped praises on Prime Minister Modi's presence in the WEF since 1997.

"It is a matter of pride for all of us, that for the first time in 20 years, we have a PM who came and represented our country at the global level," Shah Rukh concluded. (ANI)
