Entertainment Desk: The 'King Khan' of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan is all set to deliver his next lecture at Oxford University.

This would be Shah Rukh Khan's second best invitation after TED Talk in Vancouver, in Vancouver, Canada where he was the first Indian actor to deliver a speech.

With leaving no stone unturned to impress his fans through his mesmerising speech, the Jab Harry Met Sejal actor has accepted the Oxford University's invite and will be delivering a lecture soon.

The actor, who just completed his silver jubilee in the Indian film industry, is a force to reckon with whether it comes to glamour, stardom, success or money.

"I love to talk. Whenever someone invites me to deliver a speech, I always consider it an opportunity. I have been to Yale earlier (in 2012) and now, I have received an invitation from Oxford. I'll go if I have the time and if it fits into my scheme of things," Khan said in recent Mid-Day report.

In June 2016, Shah Rukh Khan was invited as a Chief Guest at a recent graduation ceremony event at the Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai.

In 2012, the 'King Khan' became the first Bollywood personality to be honoured with the prestigious Chubb Fellowship at Yale University. During the ceremony, he left everyone in awe when he started his inspiring yet entertaining speech.  He said, "I believe that the true path to success is through the fear of failure."

Also, in 2015, Shah Rukh Khan was presented with the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa from the University Chancellor HRH The Princess Royal in Edinburgh where, his speech was a perfect combination of knowledge and humour.

Shah Rukh Khan is currently hard at work promoting his new film Jab Harry Met Sejal, co-starring Anushka Sharma and directed by Imtiaz Ali. He's also begun work on an untitled project helmed by Aanand L Rai, in which SRK's character is a dwarf.
