Shahrukh Khan is famously known as the Badshah of Bollywood, King Khan, King Of Romance etc but have you ever wondered why or how he got this status in the Bollywood industry?
Well I did and I got my answers as well. There are some things or attributes in Shahrukh Khan that he is blessed with and which just clicks with the people, making us love him more and more.
From a guy who first appeared on television in Fauji serial to becoming one of the most famous personalities across the world, Shahrukh Khan has achieved what every layman in India dreams to achieve.
While some call it sheer luck, I would like to clarify that SRK has achieved this status with his hard work and nothing else.
During the promotions of Chennai Express, The Times carried a headline, 'Meet the world's biggest film star,' which clearly shows how big a star he has become.
Speaking about his star status, Shahrukh said, "I get amazed they call me that - and I think maybe deep down inside my heart I don't deserve all of this.
He further added, "I feel very grateful and very odd. I don't even know why people like me so much." While he may be the epitome of being modest, read to know about the 10 traits of Shahrukh that made him the Badshah of Bollywood.
He is witty and intelligent. His humour skills comes in handy every time he hosts an awards show. He is simply a great company to be with.
If there is one thing that Shahrukh Khan cannot be beaten by anyone, it is his charming nature. He can simply charm the hell out of anyone, even at this age he can make any person go gaga over him.
Shahrukh Khan is more popular internationally than any Bollywood star, including Aishwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan. Apart from India, his films have market in USA, UK, Canada, UAE and Malaysia.
Ruling Bollywood Without A Godfather
One of the reasons why people love him is because he represents them. Before he became King Khan, he too struggled to make it big in films. From theatre to television and finally to films, he did all this with no Godfather in the industry to help him.
Special Human Being
SRK is known to always be there for those who need help. Kajol once said, "For me Shah Rukh Khan is like a God. He is kind and will always take care about the problems of his friends. He is a person who is very easy to discuss and talk with. He likes to help people. For me he is a very special human being."
He is not only an actor but a great businessman as well who knows just how to mint money, be it through his unique marketing strategies for his films or by performing at weddings. Whatever he did has worked, for SRK is estimated to be worth $600 million, beating Hollywood celebs like Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood and even Adam Sandler.
Everybody in the industry is in awe of Shahrukh's working skills. He works round the clock and barely sleeps. Amitabh was once quoted saying, "Shah Rukh Khan is the rage of the country he is a superstar and loved by millions of people....he's a very very hard working actor...doesn't take anything for granted."
He has female fans all over the world and that includes both the Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities. Vidya Balan once said, "When I went for the screening of Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and he puts out his arms in the song 'Mitwa', for a minute I saw myself running to him!"
Actor And Villain
He was one of the first actors to have blurred the lines between hero and villain. He has done a lot of roles with negative shades and has never shied away from doing something new and different.
