There is no full-stop where learning is concerned and certainly no age limit when it comes to school. Actor and singer Fakhr-e-Alam just did an online course from Harvard Business School and he is encouraging all his followers to give themselves that little push that opens them up to new worlds.

On Tuesday, the 46-year-old shared his latest milestone on Instagram. “Never STOP learning, [you can] never [be] too old to learn…. Never thought I would one day attend Harvard Business School… Even though online but Harvard none the less… Earned my Alternative Investments certificate,” he wrote, explaining what constitutes it. “It’s a very interesting course from private equity, private debt, distress investing, hedge funds, real estate, portfolio management and strategies….”

The ‘Laut Aao’ singer said the course added to his knowledge and helped him discover new ways to go about his business dealings. “It perfectly aligned with things I have been doing for a few years in business but it opened my mind and changed my approach on so many business strategies especially my investments…..”

He repeated himself and reminded his followers that it’s never too late to learn. “It’s always great to learn new things….. Wish you all happy learnings……” He concluded by tagging Harvard Business School and thanking them.

Like Alam, there are several other actors who have set an example by pursuing further studies. Actor Mawra Hocane went back to law school to finish what she started despite her blossoming career because education is not necessarily about getting a job, but polishing oneself. Actor Ameer Gilani also recently graduated from Harvard Law School and Indian actor and author Twinkle Khanna is currently pursuing her Masters in Fiction Writing at the prestigious Goldsmiths, University of London.
