Shah Rukh Khan.

Also known as the the badshaah of badshaahs, the mega-popular, mega-famed, and very much so mega-rich superstar of the Indian film industry.

What about him?

As is well known, his odyssey to fame has been marked by countless obstacles. We all know that SRK started off his career in television. But how many know that his first paycheck was courtesy B-town's singer Pankaj Udaas?

It happens to be the case in fact!

According to none other than SRK (as per his confession on microblogging site Twitter), he was paid his first paycheck when he took up the job as a show usher to a Pankaj Udaas concert.

Yes, this information does not technically qualify as hot-and-happening gossip, neither is it significant to SRK's future filmography. However, it is interesting to know that the man that many consider a phenomena unprecedented in his own ways, was also, at a point in time, the man who scraped and scratch to make ends meet. SRK struggle has long been a secret unraveled and narrated many times over.

King Khan could be only fair in wanting all his fans to emulate the persistence that has taken him places, ardently, without giving up!

Inspirational, he has already established to be. Shah Rukh Khan and his ability to be open about his humble beginnings display an awe-inspiring idol in him.

If you, dear readers, picked the cue, say aye!

One thing I admire in SRK is that he never forgot his old days and is never shy to say it in any platform. I remember once in a show, he said when he first came to Mumbai, he lived at Aziz Mirza's place for months and the other person who means a lot to him is Vashu Bhagwani for whom he said he ate their foods and wear their clothes,
After being such a mega star I wonder how many of these stars will be have the guts to say such things??? That what make SRK special !!!
