Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has said that it will be a privilege to meet Malala Yousafzai.
His comment came in response to a tweet by the Nobel laureate who invited SRK to a talk at Oxford University where she is currently studying.
Principal of Oxford University Alan Rusbridger had initially invited SRK to talk to the students at the prestigious varsity in November 2016.
