SRK has been reigning Bollywood past several decades. He has not only taken over the Box Office but he has become an integral part of every Movie buffs life. You may love him or hate him but you can never ignore him. He is to Bollywood what heart is to body. Yes, he is the king of romance who rose to glory by taking up negative roles. Isn’t this a tad surprise to you…this fact, we mean! Yes, and there much more to SRK’s personality, the facts that will change the way you look at him.
Before coming to Mumbai to try his luck in movies, this chap ran a restaurant in New Delhi’s Dariya Ganj.
SRK has a fetish for numbers, he believes in numerology. It therefore you’d find all his cars with number plate reading 555, even his personal email id has number 555 in it and his cell phone number too contain the same digits. He also makes sure that his wife and all other officials working for him have this auspicious digit on their properties, starting with their mobile number.
SRK earned his first salary of Rs. 50 by taking up a job of an usher for a Pankaj Udas’s concert.
SRK loved watching movies as a child but his Hindi wasn’t all that great. To motivate him, his mother asked him to score well in the subject and in return she’d gaily take her lad to watch movies. Since then SRK started topping the subject. Well, actually he continues to do so even now.
For Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, SRK drew a salary of Rs 25,000/-. In fact on the release day of the film he was found selling tickets of the film in one of Mumbai’s theatres.
Who would have thought that a knight in the shining armour from Baazigar had love for horses but the fact is he has a phobia of riding horse.
SRK is very prompt about fashion and lifestyle. Such is his love for well-being that he wears freshly ironed his pajamas before going to bed.
SRK loves animals and he owns pet dogs. They are named as Dash, Hulk, Kai and Juicy.
SRK may be seen munching on the pani puris in the film but he doesn’t like to eat ice-cream!
When his schedule is running tight, SRK will be fine with just 5 hours of sleep.
SRK loves reading. He is often seen carrying a Kindle with him and has a library full of books. However, his favourite one is The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy By Douglas Adams.
SRK started off with negative roles switching to romance. He has done negative roles in 6 films in his entire career.
Whereas the name Rahul, which is synonymous with his romantic personality, has been used in 9 films and the name Raj has been used in 6 films.
Furthermore, he has done 26 cameos in his entire career and has died as a lover in 16 movies.
His pairing with Juhi Chawla was superhit and the two have appeared together in the 11 films so far.
When we said that this man has been reigning Bollywood, we literally meant it for he has won 207 awards out of 226 nominations and 29 times has been awarded as the Best actor!
It wasn’t only Shah Rukh who had a dream to become an actor but his father too aimed to be an actor and so he left Peshawar to come to Mumbai.
The meaning of SRK name, Shah Rukh is Face of the King, and we believe he has lived up to it.
To sum up, this second richest actor in the world, speaks volumes with his favourite quote that he is often heard speaking, “It is Okay if people let you down, their loss not yours.”
