The 43 year-old sha shaa shaaa Shah Rukh Honoured To Be Dr. Khan. 🙂

 

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan can now call himself “Doctor” after being honoured in the United Kingdom for his contribution to arts and culture.

 
Khan said he aimed to use the award to help educate underprivileged children.
 
At a Ceremony in London on Friday night, Bedfordshire University conferred the doctorate upon him. The ceremony was also attended by the famously barefoot Indian painter MF Hussain and British film maker Gurinder Chadha.

The actor, who has starred in dozens of films, already has his own waxwork at Madame Tussaud’s and has previously been honoured in France and Malaysia.

“Interestingly my kids don’t understand this doctorate and believe I will be awarded a stethoscope,” he joked at the degree ceremony.

 
The – Top Achievement:

The star was awarded the doctorate at a top London hotel instead of on university premises north of London because of the summer break.

Accepting the honour, Khan said,
“he had received numerous awards as an actor but being given an honorary doctorate was the top achievement”.

Khan also joked that he might get to keep his university robes:
“I have sweated in them – [they] can’t be returned unless I dry clean them.”

Khan also added, he was most scared of mathematics as a child, and intended to make sure his children were good at the subject.
