Melbourne / Shah Rukh Khan blows fans away at La Trobe

One of the world’s biggest movie stars arrived at La Trobe University on Friday 9 August to receive an Honorary Degree in recognition of his work and women’s rights advocacy.

He was welcomed by thousands of adoring fans who could scarcely contain their excitement as he was awarded an Honorary Degree at Union Hall.

Prior to the ceremony he announced a brand new La Trobe PhD scholarship valued at approximately $200000 for a female student from India.

Following the ceremony he left Union Hall and performed for hundreds of devoted fans who had waited for hours in the cold and rain to see the King of Bollywood and they were not disappointed as he performed some of their favourite pieces and did the Lungi dance.
