Shah Rukh Khan Sets New Record; Receives FOURTH Doctorate
Shah Rukh Khan’s record has not been matched by any actor in Hollywood or Bollywood so far
Shah Rukh Khan wasn't allowed to appear for the final exams of his college Jamia Milia University in Delhi because he lacked class attendance. Hence he could never complete his Masters. However, that didn't come in the way of him becoming the first Bollywood star to get four doctorate degrees, a record in contemporary Bollywood. Even among Hollywood, there are no actors with four doctorate degrees.
Shah Rukh Khan may be the only actor in the world with four PhD degrees but without a Master Degree. There has been no official confirmation to this so far. Hence it is not an official claim. But till now, no actor has been spotted (either in Bollywood or Hollywood) who can surpass Shah Rukh Khan's honorary degrees.
Shah Rukh Khan received an honorary doctorate (his fourth so far) in philanthropy by The University of Law, London on April 4. The actor, who already has honorary doctorates from The University of Bedfordshire and The University of Edinburgh, received the merit during a graduation ceremony for more than 350 students, held at the Barbican in London last Thursday.
Shah Rukh Khan’s philanthropic work includes serving as brand ambassador for government campaigns such as Pulse Polio and National Aids Control Organisation, as well as working closely with charitable foundations like the Make-a-Wish Foundation. He has also lent support to acid-attack victims through his non-profit organisation, Meer Foundation.
