Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa
Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa is one of the most warmest film of SRK’s career, his character Sunil in the film is still as relatable as he was 26 years ago. This exemplary film won SRK his third Filmfare award for the Best Actor. This film restores the feeling that if you love someone, you should let them go.
Kal Ho Na Ho
Thinking about Shah Rukh’s Aman in the film still leaves us in a myriad of emotions and we can’t help it. The album of the film is ageless and Aman Mathur’s charm is something you can’t avoid during the entire movie. The actor shared screen space with Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta in this romantic drama.
This film is one of the most heartbreaking love stories till date as it takes you through a lot of difficult situations and scenes. This film also marked Yash Chopra’s comeback in the industry after 7 years long break. SRK manages to make us root for his character with this top class acting skills.
My Name is Khan
This film received a lot of publicity because of its delicate subject. Rizwan Khan experiences Asperger’s condition while he also falls in love with a Hindu hairdresser and later when 9/11 backdrop happens he sets on a journey to change people’s perception about his religion, SRK has done a phenomenal job in this movie. The film also saw the iconic pair Shah Rukh and Kajol share the screen after around nine years. It was a box office hit and broke several awards.
Shah Rukh’s character in the movie is still used as a pop culture reference, he displayed his versatile acting skills and did complete justiceto his character in the film. The revolves around a man who wasn’t able to marry the love of his life because he was bound with his family traditions and goes in a bad state after.
Swades can definitely be considered as one of the best works of Shah Rukh Khan which made us feel like their was not much that was made up about his character Mohan. This film spins around a NRI’s homecoming, Mohan who is situated in the US and works with NASA. After his parents’ demises, he doesn’t have any motivation to return to India other than his nanny, Kaveri Amma so he returns to pay her a visit. The sound track of this film made by AR Rahman is the thing that truly adds to the vibe of this film.
Chak De India
Pass on, the best exhibition by Shah Rukh Khan in a film. Playing the role of a hockey player erroneously blamed to accepting bribe from Pakistan to discard a match, since he is Muslim, Chak De had Shah Rukh Khan swim into the political unexpectedly and the outcome was Khan’s most splendid work on the big screen.
We wish the King Khan of Bollywood a very happy birthday!
