Bollywood celebrities are not just acting aces but are also armed with a professional degree. Before entering the glamorous world of entertainment, B-town stars had wrapped their academics and here’s a glimpse of the same. From Shah Rukh Khan being honoured with a doctorate to Navya Naveli Nanda’s graduation celebration during lockdown and Sara Ali Khan’s graduation from Columbia University – here’s taking a look at Bollywood celebs who rocked the graduation cap and robe.
Dapper looking Shah Rukh Khan has often been honoured with doctorates and here’s a cheerful memory of the actor from 2019 when he suited up for a special graduation ceremony. He received a honorary doctorate from The University of Law (London) in Philanthropy and was awarded the same during a graduation ceremony. SRK apparently has honorary doctorates from The University of Bedfordshire and The University of Edinburgh.
Before entering the dreamy world of films, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh made sure that their daughter Sara Ali Khan had wrapped her education. She graduated in 2016 from Columbia University in New York. While Saif and Amrita had parted ways then, the couple made it a point to be there to drop Sara as she went to US for further studies. Sara marked her debut in Bollywood with ‘Kedarnath’ in 2018.
Parineeti Chopra is not just a pretty face but is armed with a triple honors degree in business, finance, and economics from the Manchester Business School. She had told Mumbai Mirror that she was an ace in academics and graduated in 2009, post which she started applying for positions in investment banking firms. However due to recession she returned to India and steadily worked her way in front of the camera.
