'Charity should be done in silence and with dignity': Shah Rukh Khan receives honorary doctorate for philanthropy
Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan on Thursday received 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," Shah Rukh said in a statement.
"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," he shared.
The actor also took to his Twitter page to share a picture from the felicitation ceremony.
He wrote: "Thank u for the honour @universityoflaw & my best wishes to the graduating students. It will encourage our team at @MeerFoundation to strive ‘selfishly’ to share more."
