Vikram to become Dr. Vikram
Looks like the Tamil tinsel town and its citizens are surely going places. The University of Milan, Italy, has decided to confer an honorary doctorate in Fine Arts on ‘Cheeyan’ Vikram.
The actor himself disclosed this on Wednesday, while inaugurating the annual national inter-college cultural festival at SRM University in Kattankulathur, whose name too is Milan.
“This is a pure coincidence. This is the first time I am making this announcement in public and I am happy to do that at Milan,” Vikram said, even as students welcomed it with a warm applause.
When a student posed a question on whether he was interested in entering politics, Vikram said in a lighter vein, “I do not know how to wear a dhoti. I will think of politics after I start wearing a dhoti with out a belt.”
Music legend Balamuralikrishna also spoke. The three day festival would have participation of over 7,000 students from 200 leading univercities and colleges of Engineering and Technology, Arts and Science, Medical, Paramedical and Management colleges across the country.
