In order to commemorate Father's Day, Shah Rukh Khan took the opportunity to launch the website of Meer Foundation, a philanthropic foundation named after his father, Meer Taj Mohammed Khan.

Taking to social media, the superstar shared this development with the whole world and tweeted, "A foundation I named after my father - @MeerFoundation - aims to create a network of support for women. No better day than #FathersDay for me to introduce our website to the world."

"On this very special day, #MeerFoundation brings to you a platform, powered by information, promising to strengthen women across the country," the official Twitter handle of Meer Foundation tweeted.

The main purpose of Meer foundation is to enable, enhance, encourage and empower women by making them feel appreciated and inspired, and to foster humility, pride and gallantry among the men in their lives.

The superstar is not just known for his acting and performances, but also for his philanthropic work. On the work front, the star is yet to announce his next project after Zero last December.
