Shahrukh Khan Gets Honorary Doctorate From Hyderabad University


Shahrukh Khan has been given an honorary doctorate by the Maulana Azad National Urdu University in Hyderabad. Dressed in doctoal robes and donning dark shades, Shahrukh Khan accepted the degree from the university officials at a convocation ceremony where 48000 students were awarded degrees. President Pranab Mukherjee was the chief guest at the ceremony.

Earlier Shahrukh had received the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa from the University Chancellor HRH The Princess Royal in Edinburgh, UK. He had also delivered a lecture to the students of the university.

Speaking to the students, he encouraged them to listen to their heart and do what they like, to avoid regrets about career choice later in life.

When you become a person of my age or your parents’ age or your teachers’ age, somewhere that regret will be there that why I did not do that (as a career). I just want to tell every boy and girl that do where your heart is.

The 52 year old actor remembered how his father, himself a highly educated man, always emphasized on the importance of education.

“He gave me a typewriter. You have to be very diligent in typing. When I learnt typing, I realised that practice makes you perfect. Whatever you do in life, do it with diligence as if it is the last chance to do it.”

He remembered how his lessons from his student days taught him to respect others. “Nobody is small. You have to respect all.”

Shahrukh said his father taught him to retain a sense of humour and childlike innocence. “Life will be better if you look at things with a sense of humour,” he said.

He observed that creative expression in any form is a good outlet for emotional expression.

“I am a bad poet. But, I still write something…When I write, I get peace.”

Shahrukh Khan advised the students to respect and enjoy the gift of life, through good and bad times.


SRK said the honour would make his father happy as he was a freedom fighter and held Maulana Azad and also education in high esteem.

Shahrukh Khan was seen this year in films like Fan and Dear Zindagi. His upcoming film is Raees that has already taken the internet by storm. While the film’s trailer went viral when it was released, the recently released video song Laila Main Laila is busy breaking youtube charts.
