Shahrukh Khan the most saleable actor in the business today. Crazy fans or canny distributor. His name is the guarantee. He hedges his bets by working only with best banners and top heroines. But the flip side is that he’s also willing to take risk for friends. Aditya Chopra And Karan Johar were untested entities when he signed on for Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Farah Khan directing his upcoming home production film Main Hoon Na is a first timer too.
Shahrukh Khan was born on 2nd november 1965. He was brought up in Delhi. He had done his schooling from ‘St. Columba’s school’ and from ‘Jamia Millia Islamia’ he had done Mass Communication.
Shahrukh started his career on a TV serial called “Fauji” which has given him instant recognition. He also acted in another TV soap called “Circus”. His debut film was Deewana which open the doors of film industry for him. He was playing a second hero in it but his work was appreciated. After that there was no looking back. Shah Rukh Khan has won several awards for his outstanding performance in Darr (1994), Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Baadshah (1999) …etc. He also formed a popular screen couple with Kajol.
He’s now a successful producer too with Chalte Chalte. His production company “Dreamz Unlimited” is shared with other two people… one is actress, friend, co-star Juhi Chawla and another is director and friend Aziz Mirza.
He is being called ‘King Khan’ and ‘Badshah of Bollywood’. his films are like ISI mark. He has reached to the position of choice where his films flops or hits their release is an awaited affair. Things which makes him apart from other actors are his average looks, fast speech, soulful eyes, dimples on checks, thick lips and most imp is his saying ‘I’m the best’. He feels acting is making unbelievable believable. He feels he become a better actor after acting in his two films which are also close to his heart… Dil Se and Kal Ho Naa Ho.
While studying he fell in love with Gauri Chibba who was then studying in Loreto Delhi. He later married her before coming into films. The most talented and hard working actor known to have an inflated ego, for which he works hard to keep it floating. He is having two children a son “Aryaan” and a daughter. He loves his children very much.These day he had started reading books on science as he dont want to be sound like a stupid dad, when they’ll ask him which is bigger, Uranus or Saturn. He teaches them one new thing everyday. it could be names of Fidel Castro, Michael Schumacher, Osama Bin Laden or a place a name. He is planning to read maths in another two/three years.
He feels for the younger generation that should follow his zest for life and love of doing the best they can. They should believes that there is a purpose in life that you supposed to fulfill follows it wholeheartedly. And never give up when you stumble and not taken seriously.
