Shah Rukh Khan's golden words from his 2019 graduation ceremony

For the unversed, Shah Rukh Khan received a doctorate in Philanthropy from the University of Law, London in April 2019.

Now a short video clip of SRK's speech from the ceremony is taking the internet by storm, and netizens are heaping praise on him for his wisdom and wit.

In the video, Shah Rukh Khan, who is in his graduation costume, said: "I missed my graduation day. I couldn't be there because I was working. I started working very young. So I missed wearing a gown like this and this headgear. And this is an important day, and I feel very bad that I can't take it away home. In the back, it's written - 'not for sale ever'. So, I just wanna tell you this - the job, the profession, and whatever you do in life, use it to sell your profession. Earn a lot of money. Earn and be happy emotionally. Look after your families like your families have looked after you. But just like this gown, make sure your ideologies and ideals are not for sale ever!"
