Celebrities in the Spotlight - Shah Rukh Khan
Bollycurry is back to take a snap shot look at the life and career of another B-Town Celeb!

Shahrukh Khan
: King Khan

Fondly dubbed the Badshah of Bollywood  - quite literally, since his name Shahrukh happens to mean 'face of the king' - is one megastar who is adored by critics and fans, colleagues and rivals alike.

With the need to provide for his family and a love for television commercials, Shahrukh joined the cast of hit TV soap Fauji in 1988 before friend Vivek Vaswani and Hema Malini stepped in to launch his career in Bollywood. It was implemented in the release of the commercially successful Deewana.  But his big screen debut in 1992 was only the tip of the iceberg as Shahrukh's career has been littered with box office hits, coveted awards and adoring fans ever since.

His sizzling on screen chemistry with co-stars such as Kajol, Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit is bested only by the off-screen relationship he shares with wife Gauri Khan, whom he married before his Bollywood break, and has two lovely children with - Aryan and Suhana.

And despite occasional frictions with other Bollywood personalities - most notably members of the Bachchan family, Salman and Aamir - SRK counts among his closest mates many Bollywood biggies such as Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor and Karan Johar.

Did you know?
  • Has a dog called Chewbacca (a Star Wars fan, now that's news!)
  • Loves and owns a number of BMW cars
  • Hates horse riding
  • Interestingly, the collar-bone is his favourite part of the human body
  • Was awarded the 'Sword of Honour' (essentially the award for Best Student) during his time at St Columbus, New Delhi.

    srk is a good and talented actor and very sad to read the bad remarks on india forums .. he has worked with 1. aziz mirza 2. mani ratnam 3. sanjay leela bhansali 4. subhash ghai 5.Rakesh roshan 6. Asutosh gowainker 7.farhan Akhtar which are very big names and on top of that Yash chopra , aditya chopra and Karan johar ... soooo he has worked with much more than chopras and johar and if he is working with them is a great thing as their movies are usually more watchable and successful for sure ..

    "Masterpiece" soooo you are jealous of his name in the news.
    No actor or character is larger than life but some good people just do good deed and achieve the fame and some losers cannot tolerate that
    Nothing anyone can do about it but feel sorry for you.

    pig SRK

    f***k lines of seiba..
    success hahah my foot this ugly black dark face guy..is nothing without johar & chopras...to come always in news he can go to any extent even sell his country or mother... The problem with this creature SRK is that he is thinking himself as larger than life person. Remember his arrogant remarks about Mr. Sunil Gavasker during last IPL, USA airport fisco where this dog bark and said i am khan therefore they did to me like this...Gan*u srk now this. He is making fool of everybody to keep his name always in the news. Bastard

    "masterpiece", you cannot digest SRK's stardom, popularity or his intelligence????

    I don't even know if you are more frustrated on your failure or SRK's megha succes.
