He has been ruling the filmdom with his prolific career of 28 years and is the irrefutable ‘King of Hearts’. Shah Rukh Khan celebrates his 51st birthday on November 2.

The actor made his debut in the year 1992 with the film Deewana after starring in a string of television shows such as Fauji and Circus.

SRK was first cast in villainous roles in films like Baazigar, Darr and Anjan, but soon turned it into his favour and became the quintessential romantic hero.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, Dil To Pagal Hai, Mohabbatein, Veer Zara and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi… he continued to charm viewers with his “lover boy” image.

The Baadshah of Bollywood followed Amitabh Bachchan’s footsteps and soon hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati for a season in 2007.

Shah Rukh returned to the small screen in 2008 once again with the show Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain.

Co-owner of the Indian Premier League cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders, SRK is known as a marketing genius with a brilliant businessman’s mind! 

One of the highest paid actors globally, he has not only clinched numerous awards for his stellar performances, the Government of India has honoured him with the Padma Shri too!

Last year, Shah Rukh was seen in two films – Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale and Maneesh Sharma’s Fan. While the former failed to impress critics and viewers alike, the latter earned good reviews but failed to get a good box office collection.

After his surprise cameo in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Shah Rukh has projects like Dear Zindagi, Raees and The Ring lined up.
