    Shahrukh Khan in elite company as Yale Chubb Fellow

    Shahrukh Khan in elite company as Yale Chubb Fellow

    Cineswami talks about Shahrukh’s Yale University visit, Eros’ plans to get listed on the NYSE, and Sunny Leone’s plans to remain a pornstar
    Shahrukh Khan is all set to take one of the world’s premier universities by storm. He will visit America’s Yale University as a Chubb fellow on April 12. The Chubb Fellowship is devoted to encouraging and aiding Yale students interested in the operations of government and in public service. Established in 1936, through the generosity of Hendon Chubb (Yale 1895), the programme is based in Timothy Dwight College, one of Yale’s residential colleges. Each year three or four distinguished men and women have been appointed as visiting Chubb Fellows. Chubb Fellows spend their time at Yale hanging out informally with students and deliver a public lecture.
    Former Chubb Fellows include Presidents George W Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter; authors Octavio Paz, Carlos Fuentes, and Toni Morrison; filmmaker Sofia Coppola; architect Frank Gehry; choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov; and journalist Walter Cronkite. That’s quite a roster of names and SRK should be elated at this recognition. Let’s hope that he doesn’t eat too much and return to India a chubby fellow. Click here to read more
