Vikram who is keeping an extremely low profile was conferred an honorary doctorate in the field of Fine Arts by an Italian University in Milan.
Vikram himself announced it while inaugurating Milan 2011, SRM University's culturals.
Vikram said it is a pure coincidence that he is attending Milan culturals at SRM and made the announcement public of his getting honoured by the university.
The actor enjoyed his interaction with the student community.
Nearly 7000 students from 200 colleges and universities across the nation are attending the culturals.
Also present on the occasion was the music legend Balamuralikrishna.
