Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan, one of the world’s most popular movie stars with a fan following in the billions, will visit Yale University as a Chubb Fellow on Thursday, April 12.
The Chubb Fellowship is devoted to encouraging and aiding Yale students interested in the operations of government and in public service. Established in 1936, through the generosity of Hendon Chubb (Yale 1895), the program is based in Timothy Dwight College, one of Yale’s residential colleges. Each year three or four distinguished men and women have been appointed as visiting Chubb Fellows.
Often referred to as “The King of Bollywood,” Khan has acted in over 70 Hindi films. He has won 14 Filmfare Awards from 30 nominations for his work in Indian films. In 2005, the government of India honored him with the Padma Shri, one of the country’s highest civilian awards, for his contributions to Indian cinema.
