London, (ANI): The University of Bedfordshire will honour Bollywood star shahrukh khan with an honorary doctorate in the field of arts and culture on July 10.
The actor was nominated by NGO Routes to Roots which has people like Anuradha Mahindra, Juhi Chawla and Mahesh Bhatt among its patrons.
"shahrukh khan was selected by us after careful study since he has his head and heart at the right place in spite of being crowned the king of the Bollywood. The superstar has done immense work for the under privileged and downtrodden and has always come forward for charities in case of natural disasters," said Tina Vachani, one of the founders of routes to roots.
"I am delighted that Routes to Roots nominated me for the honorary doctorate in arts and culture from the Bedfordshire University UK and it will be my pleasure to receive it personally on 10th July in London," shahrukh khan said in a statement.
