PAHANG - Singapore-born actor Aaron Aziz, 41, was conferred the honorary title of Datuk by the state of Pahang in a royal ceremony on Saturday (Dec 16).

He was among the six recipients who were awarded the Darjah Indera Mahkota Pahang (DIMP) by Crown Prince Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah.

On Sunday, he posted two photos from the ceremony on his Instagram, where he is seen dressed in a black baju kurung, with a tanjak (headdress) and keris (dagger).

He said in the post that he is appreciative of the title.
