It’s been 23 years since he has reached the pinnacle. Shah Rukh Khan has made it to the top of the Indian film industry and his journey hasn’t been an easier one. Ever since making his debut 23 years ago as a frail, dark skinned young lad, Shah Rukh has made his way to the top through sheer hard work, determination and consistency. Over the years, he has starred in a plethora of hit films and given outstanding performances, which have led him to establish himself as an international artist of note.
Shah Rukh demonstrated promise and earned accolades for portraying negative roles in his earlier movies Darr and Baazigar. He followed those movies up with steady hits such as Karan Arjun, Pardes, Swades and Veer-Zaara. Throughout the years, Shah Rukh Khan has risen to the expectations of every generation by putting in versatile performances. Who can rival SRK’s portrayal of the drunken Devdaas, or the lethal Don or his role of Khan in My Name Is Khan?
Shah Rukh Khan’s recent releases, such as Happy New Year, My Name Is Khan and Chennai Express have went on to become superhit films and grossed astronomical amounts at the box office. The Bollywood actor is currently filming for his movie with Dilwale, which also stars Kajol, Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan.
On the occasion of 23 years of his debut in Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan’s massive twitter following (numbering to about 13.7 million) honoured him by trending the hashtag #23GoldenYearsOfSRK. Here are a couple of tweets from his fans:-
