Meeting Malala Yousafzai will be a privilege: SRK

Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan received the honorary doctorate at the sixth convocation of Maulana Azad National Urdu University in Hyderabad. The ‘Raees’ star was conferred with the honour for his immense contribution in the promotion of Urdu language and culture.

Fully clad in a graduation gown and sporting a sunglass, SRK received the honorary doctorate amid a huge applause by the students. The actor in his brief acceptance speech thanked the University for the Honour.

The actor said his parents would have been delighted to see the moment, especially as he was receiving the honour at his mother’s birth place.

SRK also said his father was a follower of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. “I heard my father also contested an election as an independent candidate and forfeited his deposit,” he said.

SRK also told the crowd that his father spoke beautiful Urdu and Persian. “Whatever little knowledge I have about how to speak, it is because of him,” he said.

“I think it is a very big responsibility in the field of education and in the field of Urdu and languages. Through my work, whatever little I can do, I promise, I will make sure that I take it to the best of my capabilities,” he added.

Previously, actor Aamir Khan has also been conferred with a similar honour by the University back in 2013.

On the work front, SRK will be next seen in Rahul Dholakia’s Raees.
