Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan who is in the news as his upcoming release 'Raees' is nearing its release date, was awarded an honorary doctorate by a University in Hyderabad few days ago, and also grabbed another award at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 2016. He was presented with Kids Icon of the year award at the event. Shah Rukh Khan remembered his childhood while receiving the award, “When I was a kid, I always wanted to grow up, and now that I am old, I really miss my childhood. I think it’s the best time of our lives, when we are so carefree,” he said. He went ahead and shared his memories with his father, “I feel proud when I see people studying and educating themselves. There is nothing greater than education in the world. My father was a highly educated man. But he was also poor. He never got any job. He hardly had any money. Whatever business he started despite being so educated, they was all failures. But he gave me a lot of love. Because he didn’t have any money on every birthday of mine, he used to give me some of his old things and through those, I got my learnings,” SRK said. The event which featured Varun Dhawan as well as Alia Bhatt will be aired on January 1, 2017. Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of a bootlegger in his highly anticipated movie 'Raees' which will clash with Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil on 25th January 2017.
