Speaking at a conference at the Maulana Azad University Shah Rukh Khan encouraged young students to listen to their hearts and do what they like, to avoid regrets about career choice later in life.

The Bollywood superstar stated “When you become a person of my age or your parents’ age or your teachers’ age, somewhere that regret will be there that why I did not do that (as a career). I just want to tell every boy and girl that do where your heart is”. Khan talked about his late humble father who was not financially well off but taught him many valuable life lessons. “Nobody is small. You have to respect all. He gave me a typewriter. You have to be very diligent in typing. When I learnt typing, I realised that practice makes you perfect. Whatever you do in life, do it with diligence as if it is the last chance to do it,” 

Khan encourage students to enjoy the gift of life, through good or bad times. Khan was visually happy to be receiving the honour and stated it would make his father happy as he was a freedom fighter.

The 51 year old star was giving a talk to students of the university where he was awarded a honorary doctorate for his contribution towards promotion of Urdu language and culture.
