SRK Honored With A Doctorate Degree At La Trobe University For The Work He Has Done For Underprivileged Children & Women

Shah Rukh Khan, the ‘King Khan’ of Bollywood, has been ruling the hearts of his fans since a long time now. From his persona, his acting, his charm, to his performances, SRK never fails to take our hearts away. In a career of nearly three decades, what the actor has achieved, is a dream of many.

Apart from the movies, SRK has worked to bring a change at ground level and build a world that empowers women through Meer Foundation, a philanthropic organization founded by Shah Rukh Khan named after his father Meer Taj Mohammed Khan.

Recently, Shah Rukh Khan was honored with a doctorate degree from Melbourne-based La Trobe University for his efforts and contributions towards underprivileged children and women’s empowerment through his ‘Meer Foundation’.

The official twitter handle of the University shared a few pictures of the superstar and excerpts from his speech. While receiving the award, Shah Rukh Khan had said:

‘I am deeply grateful to @latrobeuni for its graciousness in offering scholarships for the education of young women from my country. I doff my hat a million times to you!’ – @iamsrk

In another tweet, the university’s Twitter account also shared another excerpt from his speech, where he said: “This is not an award for anything the Meer Foundation might have achieved. It is for the courage of every woman who faces the brutality of injustice, inequality and inhumanity.”

Before receiving the degree, SRK has uploaded a picture of himself on his social media where he thanked the University for the honor. He wrote:

On the way to @latrobe University.. Thank you for the kind gesture of offering a scholarship to a girl student from India for higher education and supporting the work at @MeerFoundation

Talking about his work front, SRK was last seen in Aanand L.Rai’s Zero and in his interviews after that, the actor admitted that he wants a break before signing his next project.

The actor is yet to sign any movie but if rumors are to be believed than Aditya Chopra will soon announce a project starring King Khan in the lead role. The movie is expected to be a love story, where SRK will be seen in his element.
