Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has shown us once again why he is just like us. The actor-producer finally took time out of his busy life to collect his graduation degree on Tuesday, 28 years after passing out from Hansraj College in New Delhi.

On the occasion, he walk down the memory lane as he recalled his days time at his alma mater. The 50-year-old Dilwale actor, who was in the capital to launch the anthem of his much-awaited Yash Raj Film, Fan, said he felt special coming back to the campus.

“This is a very special moment for me. I am back in my college, which I left in 1988. I am missing only one thing --my children are not with me today, as I wanted to show them every corner of my college,” Shah Rukh said at the event.
