Meeting Malala will be a privilege, says Shahrukh Khan
The 21 year old Pakistan’s youngest Nobel prize winner, Malala Yousafzai might be getting what she had wished for, and that too very soon.
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has accepted to speak at Oxford University on her request, where Malala has started her second academic year.
Previously, a thread of tweets from 2016 was started by Alan Rusbridger, principal at Oxford University, which was quickly accepted by Shahrukh Khan for speaking at the honored institution. Furthermore, the tweet was retweeted by Malala and she tagged the actor.
can we tempt to to Oxford University to talk to our students at @lmhoxford? They love you (I’m the principal)

“Can we tempt to Oxford University to talk to our students at Lady Margaret Hall? They love you (I’m the principal),” Alan Rusbridger had written.
In his tweet, SRK replied back at Malala’s retweet and instead said that it would be his ‘privilege’ to meet Malala when he comes to the university.
SRK replied to Malala saying that he would not only be coming to deliver a speech at Oxford University, but he also mentioned that meeting the Pakistani activist would be nothing less than a privilege.
