Priyanka Chopra did not get honorary doctorate at Bareilly University.
Actor Priyanka Chopra will be honoured with a doctorate degree by the Bareilly International University. The international icon will be felicitated with the degree tomorrow by the University chancellor Keshav Kumar Agrawal in a ceremony to be attended by Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan and Uttar Pradesh Finance Minister Rajesh Agarwal.
On this, Priyanka wrote a message to the social media with a heart-sighing – I am sorry that I could not get honorary doctorate in person by attending personally at Bareli International University. We waited for the ATC’s green signal on the airport.
“Weather Gods and Goddesses, please do your thing and clear the skies. I really need to get to Bareilly! Fog lock down. This can’t be happening,” Priyanka tweeted.

The chancellor will also present Chopra a memento as she revisits her hometown after almost 5 years. The 35-year-old actor’s mother, Madhu Chopra said, “It gives me immense joy and satisfaction, that Priyanka’s work for various social causes is being appreciated and felicitated. “She justifiably deserves it. May god bless her and give her the strength to do good for those who are less fortunate,” she added.
An enlightening discussion with Dr. Yasmin Ali Haque, Representative, UNICEF India, and Avantika and Simran, two amazing and bright adolescent girls who have been doing some amazing things. Simran fought for her right to an education amidst much adversity from her family. This spirited child ensured that she continued her education. We discussed giving voices, platforms and equal opportunities to all adolescents. To give them a chance to express what they want to do and to demand their basic rights like education. I left the conversation further encouraged and determined to continue the work that we are doing with @unicefindia! #ForEveryChild #EndChildMarriage And I would like to specially mention our partners in the media, who were such an engaging audience. I am sure they will highlight these issues meaningfully.
