Shah Rukh Khan is not just an actor but a global icon. He is a philanthropist, an orator and an entrepreneur. And when it comes to international recognition, the actor is in a league of his own.
After the Honorary doctorates from The University of Bedfordshire and The University of Edinburgh. Shah Rukh Khan has been venerated with an Honorary doctorate in Philanthropy by The University of Law, London.
I believe that charity should be done in silence and with dignity. One cannot speak about their charitable acts because it loses its purpose. I have been privileged to be able to use my status as a public personality to champion causes close to my heart. I actively participate with the causes of women empowerment, rehabilitation of the underprivileged and basic human rights. I firmly believe that I have to give back to the world that has given me so much. I am humbled with this Honorary Doctorate bestowed upon me and would like to thank everyone involved for choosing me.
The actor received the merit during a graduation ceremony for more than 350 students, held at the Barbican in London on 4th April 2019.
