The announcement was made during Shah Rukh Khan's visit to La Trobe University as chief guest of the 2019 Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.

"This award is not an award which Meer foundation might have done or achieved, it is an award for courage of every woman who faces brutally of injustice, inequality and inhumanity". For his outstanding humanitarian work for women empowerment, in reference to the Meer Foundation, the actor has been bestowed with an honorary doctorate from the La Trobe University, Melbourne.

"More often the society are tending to reward anger and hatred rather than nurture compassion and love".

Shah Rukh Khan, 53, is a global icon and a star of more than 80 films including recently voicing the role of Mufasa in the Hindi version of Disney's remake of the Lion King Movie.

He said that with such conviction, the world will be able to sustain its beauty and reject the false barriers created by man.
