Mumbai, April 4 -- Actor Shah Rukh Khan will deliver a lecture at the prestigious Yale University on April 12 as its Chubb Fellow, an honour which in the past has been bestowed on heads of states and Noble prize winners.
The Chubb Fellowship is among Yale's highest honours. "Through his films and his philanthropy, the Chubb Fellowship noted that Khan has been among his generation's most important examples of the power of art to promote higher human ideals and aspirations," the university said.
Chubb Fellows spend their time at Yale in close, informal contact with students and deliver a public lecture. Former Chubb Fellows include President George W Bush, filmmaker Sofia Coppola and journalist Walter Cronkite.
