A leading UK University will confer on Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty on Wednesday an honorary doctorate for her outstanding contribution to cultural diversity.

The Leeds Metropolitan University, by presenting the doctorate to the 32-year-old star, has fulfilled its wish to honour prominent Indian personalities who contributed to India's emergence as a fast developing cinema-proud nation during its 60th year of freedom struggle, a spokeswoman of the University said.

The Mangalore-born Shilpa Shetty is the youngest actor from the Indian film fraternity to join ranks of Amitabh Bachchan, Shabana Azmi and Yash Chopra who have been earlier chosen for the honour.
