Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan delivered a lecture on life lessons at the University of Edinburgh on Thursday.
"My speech today is about Life Lessons at the Edinburgh University and my biggest learning is Life is the only Miracle," SRK tweeted alongside a black and white photograph of himself on Thursday.
The actor, who has been honoured with a Padma Shri award, is globally known for films like "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" and "Jab Tak Hai Jaan".
The 49-year-old star has three films in his kitty -- "Dilwale" "Raees" and "Fan".
"Dilwale", directed by Rohit Shetty, will see SRK and Kajol together on the big screen after five years since "My Name is Khan".
While "Dilwale" is slated to hit the theatres on December 18, "Raees" and "Fan" will release next year.

"Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is indeed an honour for me to receive this doctorate today. "Humbled" is a word often used by people in my profession. I dislike the hypocritically obsequious connotation of it in these contexts so I'm not going to use it, but I will say that such occasions have a way of putting me right in my place! I get invited to conferences and inaugurations now and then to speak. When I receive the invitations, I also receive my brief. It's usually about "success" and my "tips" on it (not my toes- those are covered by the "I will never show my toes" clause in my acting contracts. It's my attempt at gender equality. My co-stars have no nipple clauses; I have a no toes one).
Most people believe Bollywood stars aren't insightful about anything other than the fateful occurrences that made them stars in the first place! I've had the odd divergence from being taken for stupid though; recently I got an email from the International Association of Advertising It read, "Dear Mr. Khan, The advertising community would like you to address them on Globalization and disruptive marketing". I spent the next 4 hours on Google trying to assimilate the "disruptiveness" of innovating a product to match its market? But it was one of those rare days when even Google can't help you. A day when you need to leave Google and ask God for deliverance. But I have a film releasing soon, so I didn't want to waste my quota of favours from God...believe you me, I need a big hit right about now. So I did the next best thing. I made a grand entry on my io hawk and told everybody, that there is nothing I can tell you that you already don't know. You are such an august group of gathering...blah blah. Instead let me entertain you because you all deserve a break, and before the organizers could interject I started thrusting my pelvic into their faces and broke out into the one and only intellectual thing I know to do... The Lungi Dance. I got away with it without being "humbled" (it helps to be a better dancer than most advertisers ) and what's more, they seemed to have a good time."
