The principal of the prestigious institution, Alan Rusbridger, requested Khan to pay a visit to Oxford through a Twitter post saying “Can we tempt you to (visit) Oxford University to talk to our students at Lady Margaret Hall( at the campus)?

Seems like it was a lucky day for Malala because Mr Khan saw her tweet to which he kindly replied that it will be a privilege to meet her and that he’ll ask his team to make the arrangements sooner than ever!
Most certainly would love to do it & meeting u will be a privilege. Will put my team to schedule it sooner than soon https://t.co/hX9b0ghJxL

If met, Khan will be the latest addition to the string of celebs Malala has met. Last year, the activist met another global icon Priyanka Chopra, who was in absolute awe of her.
