After almost three decades, the famous Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan went to receive his Bachelor’s degree in Economics, from Hansraj College. (makes him my super senior 🙂 )
Shah Rukh Khan received his graduation degree on Tuesday (16th Feb) — 28 years after passing out from Hansraj College in Delhi.
“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. They are not with me today. I wanted to show them every corner of my college,” SRK said, while collecting his diploma.
The star has such a huge fan-following that all roads in North Campus lead to Hansraj College that day. From the rickshawallah at the Vishwavidyalaya Metro station to the vendors outside other colleges, everyone in the vicinity knew ‘Hans Raj mein Shah Rukh aane wala hai.’
Students had been pouring in to the grounds there since morning and once Shah Rukh arrived, barricades, security and the police – nothing could control the unstoppable crowd.
Diksha, a Ramjas student, said, “I came here around 10am because I knew I wouldn’t be able to get any place to stand and I can’t climb on trees like those boys. But once I got a place in the front row, I was unable to leave – there was no place to even move!”
Over 30 policemen, more than 150 bouncers and the college security together could not stop students from jumping over and breaking the barricades once Shah Rukh arrived.
A security person who was standing at the barricade to stop girls from jumping said, “Hamari agency itne bade events karti hai, par aaj yahan 150 bouncers ke hone par bhi ye bheed control ke bahar hai. DU jaisa hungama kahin nahin hota, yeh marne ko bhi taiyyar hain.”
Unbelievable fan base! Isn’t it?
