Well before you get puzzled and start applying your grey cells on the aforementioned sentence, give us an opportunity to share our thoughts with you. It's about his romantic movies/love stories which we are talking about which earned him the title of a quintessential romantic hero. Believe it or not, but in many films King Khan is being shown struggling to get his true mate/love interest.
As an actor we have seen him growing bit by bit but (we must say) King Khan's eternal lover boy image has remained unaltered and intact. He still has the same loverboy charm and till date in his films we can see the same amount of passion & pain of getting his soul mate. Following are the films where Shahrukh truly, duly, madly struggles for his love life.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi: Here a simpleton, nerd Shahrukh wholeheartedly loves Anuskha Sharma and just for her wish goes for a complete makeover in his looks, style, attire, etc.
Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna: Here the already married man Shahrukh who is not satisfied with his marriage finds his soul mate in Rani Mukherjee, who herself is married to someone else. After settling all the misunderstandings and grief Shahrukh finally gets Rani.
Veer Zaara: This is one of the most beautiful mature lovestory in which Shahrukh starred giving one of his best performances. Indian boy Veer (SRK) falls for Pakistani girl Zaara (Preity Zinta) who are separated for about twenty two years. And after a long meditation finally the true lovers SRK and Preity meet.
Kal Ho Naa Ho: This is one of the most unfortunate love stories of SRK where he loves Preity Zinta unconditionally, but can't let her know about his feelings towards her because of his deadly disease as he is destined to die.
Devdas: The list would stand incomplete without this name. The passionate lover Devdas (SRK) turns rebellious alcoholic and ruins his life because of the agony of being separated from his childhood beloved Paro (Aishwarya Rai, now Aishwarya Bachchan). This is one of the saddest love stories where SRK ultimately dies after messing up his life.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge: This is SRK's unarguably most loveable, adorable, cutest, simplistic, charming, delightful love stories till date which appears very real. To get his Dulhanaia, the dedicated & loyal lover Raj (SRK) puts all his efforts to patao his lover Simran's (Kajol) stern dad, who is against romance and love. But finally manages to get her.
Dil Se: It would be unfair if we forget to mention this film. The film very beautifully showed the ardent, passionate, immature lover boy side of SRK who desperately wants Manisha Koirala in his life but cant as she is linked to anti social elements.
Other films which makes the list complete are Anjaam, Darr, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, Pardes, Mohabbatein, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, where SRK struggled/ suffered all the pain to gain his love dale.
Even after spending almost 15–16 glorious years in Bollywood, Baadshah Shahrukh Khan is still a struggling lover!
