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. (Totally justified, considering his chock-o-block schedule, we say. )
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.
While presenting him with the degree, Hansraj College Principal Rama Sharma said the institution is proud of its superstar student.
“We are very happy to present him the degree after so many years. We had kept his degree safely in our college. We are proud to bestow him with it today,” Sharma said.
