Shah Rukh Khan is more than a superstar who has been delighting us with his performance and actually made us acquainted with romance in every sense possible. But now, we get to see another side of him, on Thursday he has received an honorary doctorate once again. After the University of Bedfordshire and the University of Edinburgh, SRK received a doctorate in Philanthropy from the University of Law, London during a graduation ceremony held for more than 350 students.
The University of Law tweeted the photos of the King of Bollywood and wrote, “Our next Honorary Doctorate goes to actor, producer and philanthropist Shah Rukh Khan (@IamSRK), in recognition of his work in championing human rights, access to justice and crime reduction #ULawGrad #SRK #ShahRukhKhan #ULaw.”
While receiving the honor, the actor talked about how important it is to express love and emotions and also said, “The acid attack victims are the bravest women I have met in my life. They have suffered tremendously.” He talked about the work done by his Meer Foundation which is working towards the empowerment of acid attack survivors. The official website of Meer Foundation says that their mission is to ‘enable, enhance and encourage – empower women by making them feel appreciated and inspired, and to foster humility, pride, and gallantry among the men in their lives.’
SRK expressed his gratitude towards the University of Law, London tweeting, “Thank u for the honor @universityoflaw & my best wishes to the graduating students. It will encourage our team at @MeerFoundation to strive ‘selfishly’ to share more.”
In a statement, the actor also said, “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.”
