Superstar Shah Rukh Khan returned to his alma mater, Delhi University's Hansraj College, to finally receive his graduation degree after 28 years.

The degree was presented to the Bollywood actor by Hansraj College principal Rama Sharma on Tuesday.


The 50-year-old who was an undergraduate student of Economics at the college, was humbled by the love showered by his fans waiting to catch a glimpse of him as he launched the promotional anthem for his upcoming film Fan.

Following the event, where he regaled his fans with an impromptu jig and some fun, the Dilwale actor tweeted: "What a beautiful day! Thank you university mates and faculty. Love to all for such a memorable emotional moment."

It was like a walk down memory lane for Shah Rukh as he recalled his days when he was a student in the city.

"Fan took me to Delhi, my younger days and today to my college. Thank you YRF and Maneesh. JABRA mazaa aayaa," he added.

Shah Rukh was accompanied by Fan director Maneesh Sharma, who too is an alumnus of the same college.


The actor has been living in Mumbai for over 25 years, but clearly, he has his heart in Delhi, where he studied at St Columba's School.
