"We have constituted a new award called 'Entertainer of Indian Cinema', which will be given to Shah Rukh Khan this year. This will be the second time in a row he will be attending our award ceremony," a member of the organizing committee told IANS.
At the same event last year, he received Chevalier Sivaji Ganeshan award.
King Khan's presence last year drew a lot of attention from general public even though he was late by few hours.
The event, which honours the best in Tamil cinema, will see performances by some of its top stars such as Shruti Haasan, Hansika Motwani, Vaani Kapoor and Lakshmi Rai.
This year, ace Tamil filmmaker S. Shankar will receive the Chevalier Sivaji Ganeshan award.
