The Bollywood superstar had arrived in the college with Maneesh Sharma who is the director of his upcoming movie ‘Fan’ and an alumnus of the same college.

A large number of students of Hansraj College and neighbouring colleges of Delhi University gathered for the ceremony to catch a glimpse of him.
“This is a very special moment for me. I am back to my college after so many years. There is only one thing that I am missing. My children are not with me today as I wanted to show them every corner of my college. For me, this is the most special moment in my life because whatever I know and have learnt in my life is because of the college. Though my school was beautiful but my college taught me how to be who I became,” said Khan as reported by The Indian Express.
The college principal was quick to add, “We are very happy and proud to bestow him with the degree after so many years. We had kept his degree safely in our college.”
The actor also signed the register after taking the DU graduate degree.

He took to twitter to express his happiness and gratitude.
