Birthday Special: SRK Since Last 25 Years

Shahrukh-Khan film with imtiaz ali

It was in June 2017 when the King of Romance completed his 25 years in Bollywood. It was on 25th June 1992 when the superstar’s debut movie called Deewana was released and since then it has been a festive time for SRK celebrating each of his life for the silver anniversary. Today when we are close to his 52nd Birthday, we take a glimpse of his last 25 years with brevity. His start in the B Town was modest and soon he went on to appear in negative characters with films like Darr and Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa but when he was offered DDLJ in the year 95 he was reluctant to accept it as the film was not going as per his image in the silver screen.

The King of Romance Tag

However, when he finally accepted the film, he soon emerged as the King of Romance. The film simply turned as a change agent in his career in films. Soon he embarked with another blockbuster called Dil To Pagal Hai from the same makers – Yash Films. Since then it was no looking back and he gave one by one big hits including Kuch Kuch sizzlinga Hai, the popular film Devdas from Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Pardesh, Kal Ho Na Ho, Chalte Chalte and many more similar genre films. He had the privilege of working all top filmmakers including Bhansali, Yash Chopra, Mani Ratnam and Subash Ghai to name a few.

Films of Different Genre and with tangible message

He also ventured his own films like Ra One, which was among the most expensive films in B Town along with Main Hoon Na and Happy New Year, which did well over the box office. Films like Main Hoon Na and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani have touched some glaring issues and tried to reframe the image people have about media and its reports. His film, Swadesh has important lessons for the people who feel brain drain is the obvious part of our country. His film My Name is Khan questioned the tyranny going against a particular community which is being targeted in the name of security, which he made when he felt that it is high time we need to get rid of such notions about super natural powers like US.

Wrapping Up

Now when he celebrates his big day tomorrow, it would be interesting to explore the milestones he has covered so far. Films like Chak De and My Name is Khan and Dear Zindagi have loads to teach the audience. So, when he has completed his 25 long years in Bollywood, this birthday should be the special one. Let him wish the actor a very happy and prosperous birthday before he really comes out to celebrate his day.
