If there’s something that can rival Shah Rukh Khan’s acting skills, it is his oratory. After charming the audience with his signature wit and humour at his maiden TED Talk in Vancouver in April, the actor is ready to weave magic with his words again – this time at Oxford University. Khan confirms to mid-day that he has accepted the invitation to deliver a lecture at the prestigious university and is in the process of working out his dates.
“I love to talk,” says Khan with a smile, before adding, “Whenever someone invites me to deliver a speech, I always consider it an opportunity. I have been to Yale earlier (in 2012) and now, I have received an invitation from Oxford.
I’ll go if I have the time and if it fits into my scheme of things.” Khan was invited by Alan Rusbridger, the Principal of Oxford University, in November last year, when the latter wrote to the superstar on Twitter, “Can we tempt you to Oxford University to talk to our students @lhmoxford? They love you (I’m the principal).”
