Nearly 28 years in Bollywood and someone is really rocking. Be it comedy, action, romance or villainous performance, he nailed it every time, “boley toh, ball stadium se bahar.” (ball out of the stadium). He made us laugh with his comic roles, shocked us as an obsessive lover, and thrilled us as a murderer. I bet, if I call him, “Abhimanyu Rai (Fauji Serial),” it would be a mystery. Because, we know him as Badshah Khan, King of Bollywood, or King Khan.
I love you K-K-K-Kiran (Darr). Despite winning countless awards for memorable performances, khan loves to stay low-profile. He never brags about his social commitments and humanitarian work. His journey from a 50/- earning guy (a guide at a Pankaj Udhas concert in Delhi) to a 45-50 crore per movie is full of ups and downs. Not many of us know that his name is spelled as Shahrukh (means face of the king), but the king of romance preferred Shah Rukh. It was his mother who was always sure of him becoming a super start as she was the one who used to tell him that his face shares resemblance with Dilip Kumar Sahib. He is married to his only girlfriend – Gauri (Chibber) Khan and a happy father of three Aryan, Suhana, and AbRam. Let me walk you through a few his evergreen movie stills.
The King of Romance
After Rajesh Khanna, Shah Rukh is the man who gave romance new meanings. Without favoring any cheapness he proved, to be a romance, you don’t need to be a degree holder in ‘serial-kissing and lusty hugging. He knows how to play with emotion on the screen; we feel in love when we see him spreading his arms wide for Senorita (Kajol). Agree or not, people do imitate his style. Correct me if I am wrong, the characters he played over the years, made him numero-uno inspiration for all young lovebirds.
Why Women Love Him So Much
His trademarks – killing smile and dimples; he is the heartthrob of every second woman in the town. Reminds me of DDLJ, he made every woman drool over him; many of them are literally dreaming . Despite being 50, he is still a tough competition for upcoming dudes. Let me tell you the secret; it is his ideology about women – “If you respect women, be it as a girlfriend, wife or sister, they will love you. Respect is love for them. So, I respect them a lot.” the secret is – no aging at all or seeing him make me feel like he had said ‘no to age’ a long ago.
The Man & The Controversies
Big names and controversies are more likely a pastry and cherry on the top. SRK and controversies are like iron and magnet; no matter how safe you play, one chance and game over. Remind me of SRK controversies like foetal determination (false allegation), Wankhede stadium entry ban, Katrina Kaif birthday party bash with Salman, Shirish Kundra (Farah Khan’s husband) slap incident, and smoking in a public place( Rajasthan – IPL 2012) are few of them. But, to all controversies, this might be his reaction
Evergreen Jodi Number 1
Any discussion about Bollywood without romance is just like a kiss without squeeze; no use at all. And, when it is about romantic Jodis like Amitabh & Rekha, Rajesh Khanna & Mumtaz; how can we miss and SRK and Kajol. Although he was paired with Juhi Chawla, Madhuri Dixit, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kareen Kapoor Khan, but SRK & Kajol; seriously no comparison. This jodi never failed and undoubtedly, people still want to have more of “Kali Kali Aankhen.”
Bhai’s Ishtayil – Style Man
He is not one among those who need experiments with face, but his looks in most recent movie Fan, RaOne, Don and his six-pack abs got a huge round of applause.
Dance Pe Chance Mar Le
We love see him dancing. Dancing Diva Madhuri Dixit once said in an interview that, “he is an undoubted breeze to dance” Madhuri further added, he used to say, ‘Madhuri tum lead karo aur main follow karta hoon. (you start and I will follow you).’
Angry Young Man
He made us jump from the theater seat with his stunts. Be it the era of single screen cinema or multiplex, hooting, whistling, clapping and standing ovations are reserved for SRK.
He is a family Guy and for him, family means a lot. Besides, his kids and wife, SRK have a sister (Shehnaz Lalarukh) who lives with him in his mansion, “Mannat”.
Dear SRK, we love you and we wish you to give us more entertainment. We would like to wish you very all the best and a huge success for your upcoming movies and this is for you from www.bestofme.in.
