From the courts of Wimbledon to the Hollywood red carpet, Ashok Amritraj has spent most of his professional life blazing new trails.
As one of Hollywood’s most respected producers, Mr Armitraj has brought over 100 films to life, creating a remarkable $2 billion in worldwide revenues.
Now, for his achievements, Mr Amritraj will receive an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of East London. The ceremony is taking place at The O2 on 19 November.
“When I count my blessings, I am grateful for having smashed a path or several paths through the very dense and self-protective thickets of an art and industry which appear, and are in reality, daunting,” Mr Amritraj says.
