30 Years of King Khan in Bollywood: 25th June 1992, the day when a young guy full of confidence, belief, glow in the eyes, and an aspiration to rule Bombay (now Mumbai) city debuted in the Bollywood.
He never dreamt that after 30 years of that start, he would be called with various names and become ‘one of the biggest superstars Bollywood ever produced.'
Today marks the 30 years of Shah Rukh Khan in Hindi cinema with his debut movie Deewana too completing its successful 30 years. Today, his co-stars from that movie; Rishi Kapoor and Divya Bharti will be very proud of the Delhi-born superstar.
Shah Rukh’s early life wasn’t as easy and lavish as it is today. He lost his parents at an early stage even before he started his Bollywood career. He started his acting career with the role of a soldier in Doordarshan fame serial ‘Fauji’. Later worked in Circus and gained popularity among the people.
In the initial years, he was termed “Fauji Wala Hero.”
Now, he doesn’t need names as he has many with people calling him “Baadshah”, “King Khan”, “Baazigar”, and many more to say.
Shahrukh though had gained immense popularity with the success of his debut movie “Deewana” but to stay there more, he had to opt for Villain roles too.
He once said, “I want to get work anyhow and I thought I’m not that good-looking to be a hero, so I accepted the films like Darr and Baazigar.”
But to the contrary, his work in both films became memorable and gained cult popularity. His dialogues in these films like “Kabhi Kabhi Jeetne Ke Liye Kuch Haarna Padhta Hai Aur Haarkar Jeetne Walo ko Baazigar Kehte Hai” and “I love you k.k.k.k.k.kirannn” became famous among people’s tongue.
After doing some of the villainous roles in these films, Shah Rukh’s fame as the romantic hero increased with his all-time blockbuster “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.”
This film was the turning point of his career and he only rose to the top from thereon. His partnership with Yash Raj films became memorable as he did many films with the production house later on.
He did “Dil to Pagal Hai”, “Mohabbatein”, “Veer-Zara”, etc. and made his work count.
He never had thought of this much respect, love and emotions he will get from fans across the world and will be termed as a global superstar when he came to Mumbai.
Once upon a time, at the marine drive; looking at the setting sun he announced and said “one day I will rule this city” and its 30 years to that unmatchable aura, class, charm, passion, determination, and all hard work he did in his whole life.
