Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan is knwon for his good command on English language and can spell his charms only using his infectious charm and wit. The Indian star has hit the headlines after a picture of his admission form for Hans Raj College went viral, celebrity website reported.
According to a leading daily, a student-run online portal, Delhi University Times, had shared the picture of SRK’s admission form for Hans Raj College where it shows that he secured 51 marks in English when he graduated from school. With this, the trolling began with many targeting the superstar.
While the source of the admission form is not known, Milhaj Hussain, the admin of the portal, told a leading daily that the form is authentic. He further added, “We shared it online to showcase that marks don’t matter if you are hardworking enough and know your aim in life. And, who can be a better person to set an example than Shah Rukh Khan? Through our portal we encourage students.Also, celebrity posts attract a lot of traffic and students tend to talk about them more. When it’s the King of Bollywood, traffic is must.”
Well, while many supported the actor saying that marks does not matter in the long run, others questioned the cuts-off and its relevance.
A leading daily quoted a third-year student of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College saying, “I got better marks than Shah Rukh and still could not crack a college in North Campus. With marks like him, it is now difficult to get admission in any college of Delhi University. What has changed in all these years if the courses and colleges are the same?”
On the other hand, another student of Kirori Mal College said, “Marks don’t define anyone. After a point, it is about how you present yourself. One can score a 95 in English and still not able to speak fluently! Coming to SRK, he just delivered the most amazing TED talk in Vancouver. Try beating that!”
However, Dr Rama, Hans Raj College principal said, “Sharing an admission form is not illegal but making fun of his marks is not right. Students should understand that the scenario was different back then. The marking scheme and checking were different and difficult back then. I feel proud that Shah Rukh is from my college and marks don’t matter, it is the overall development that matters.” – Web Desk
