Shahrukh Khan
Known as King Khan, the Badshah of Bollywood, or simply, SRK, Shahrukh Khan is one of the “big three Khans”—along with Aamir Khan and Salman Khan—who have dominated Bollywood for two decades, although Shahrukh has surpassed the other two in terms of global recognition, and unlike the other two, Shahrukh does not come from an established film family. He made his debut in 1992 in Deewana and catapulted to superstardom in 1995 with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, or DDLJ as it’s know, which is still showing in Mumbai, making it the longest running movie in history. His character in DDLJ, Raj, is the archetype of the modern romantic Bollywood hero—brash, hip, and Westernized, but Indian at heart. His top hits include Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), Om Shanti Om (2007), and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008). In 2008, Newsweek magazine named him one of the 50 most powerful people in the world. He’s married to his childhood sweetheart, Gauri, with whom he has a son and a daughter.
