Shah Rukh Khan has completed 27 years in Bollywood. The statement alone has created a massive uproar on the internet. Fans and audiences are sharing their love on social media for the 53-year-old star who made his debut on television with Fauji in the late 80s.

The icon is also referred to as SRK, King Khan, Badshah, and King of Bollywood among many other moniker. Shah Rukh’s career has spanned across the last three decades with a plethora of filmography that has seen him excel in almost all genres, except ‘best heroin’, perhaps!

For his contributions to film, the Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri, while the French Government awarded him with both; the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and the Légion d’honneur.

Khan has a massive fan following across the globe, so much so, that his popular films are screened in the local languages of the country they are released in.

While many are elaborating, intellectualizing on the actor’s cinematic career, most have missed the amount of love and adoration people have for the star in his own country. Just as critics make the artist and the work of art reach somewhere, so do the fans of film stars in India.

Twitter is flooded with heartfelt messages, memes and posts sharing the actor’s journey along with the fans expressing their love in myriad ways.

Here are some handpicked posts.
