Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan captivated the students of Yale University as he came to the Ivy League institution as a Chubb Fellow, one of its top honours.
Khan charmed the crowd as he spoke to them about success and failure and how to live life to the fullest. He encouraged young people to find fulfilment in creativity, to learn to laugh at themselves and to never become cynical about their lives.
“Failure is a fiendish friend that can lead to success by teaching one to be pragmatic, to work harder, and to be true to oneself,” he said, adding that the true strength of one’s friendships is tested in the face of strong adversity.
The lecture took a light-hearted turn when Khan danced his signature ‘Chammak Challo’ moves with Yale student Natalia Khosla.
“This is the most fun I have had in months!” Khan said. Does that include the two hours he was detained at the airport!!!!!
