Way forward for any country is by educating itself more: Shah Rukh Khan


PTI, Feb 27, 2020, 12:27 PM IST

Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Wednesday said it’s with constant education that a country, a family can move forward as there is never an end to learning.

In December last year, when the actor visited the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, La Trobe University announced the ‘Shah Rukh Khan La Trobe University Ph.D. Scholarship’.

At the event to announce the recipient of the scholarship here on Wednesday, Shah Rukh said it was his honor to lend his name or be attached to the scholarship.

“I am a big believer in education. I truly believe that the way forward for any country, any family, city, state is by educating itself more and more. There is never an end to education. I’ve come to realize the more I know, I figure out, the less I understand. It’s very important to keep educating ourselves for the rest of our lives.

“I’ve always believed education in India and elsewhere in the world, is the most important step forward for any nation,” he said.

The scholarship was dedicated to Gopika Kottantharayil Bhasi, a female researcher from Thrissur, Kerala.

Gopika, who choose from over 800 women, is working on farming practices through animal science, ecology, and molecular studies.

Shah Rukh, 54, said what also will help to make the world move ahead is educating women.

“Related to the fact, is, of course, education of women, empowering women, to look after themselves to look after their families. If you are able to empower them with education, the world goes even further forward,” the actor added.
