King Khan of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, has been conferred with an honorary doctorate in arts and culture by the Bedfordshire University, Britain at a ceremony in London for his contributions to culture. 

Shah Rukh was nominated by Routes to Roots, a non-government organisation that works across the SAARC region to bring South Asian people together. 

"Shah Rukh Khan needs no introduction - being a superstar his contribution to arts, culture and media is well recognised. He has a huge fan following not only in India but across the globe," said a spokesperson for Routes to Roots. 

"In spite of being a busy superstar he reaches out to the needy, poor and contributes to charities for the upliftment of the underprivileged at large. He is a great philanthropist but rarely talks about his charities," the spokesperson added.  

Bedfordshire University deputy vice-chancellor Ashraf Jawaid said: "We are absolutely delighted to confer this honorary doctorate on Shah Rukh Khan. He has made an outstanding contribution to the arts, culture and media, which is recognised around the world."
