Over three decades ago when he came to the city of dreams Mumbai, Delhi boy Shah Rukh Khan never imagined becoming the Badshah of the Hindi film industry. As the superstar clocked the milestone recently, all he has is gratitude for people who stood by him.
Shah Rukh Khan, 56, started his acting journey with television shows ‘Fauji’ and ‘Circus’. He made his Bollywood debut in June 1992 with ‘Deewana’, opposite Divya Bharti, and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor.
Following his successful debut with ‘Deewana’, SRK played the affable boy-next-door in ‘Chamatkar’, ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’, and ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na’ among others, before experimenting with grey characters in films like ‘Baazigar’, ‘Darr’ and ‘Anjam’.
Yash Raj Films released the first look of Khan from ‘Pathaan’ to celebrate the actor’s 30 years in cinema.
Sharing the motion poster, SRK thanked fans for the abundant love that he received over the course of his 30-year-long career and wrote about “continuing” the journey with Pathaan. He captioned the post: “30 yrs and not counting cos your love and smiles have been infinite. Here’s to continuing with Pathaan. Celebrate ‘Pathaan’ with YRF on 25th January 2023. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.”
Pathaan also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. Shah Rukh was last seen in the 2018 film ‘Zero’, co-starring Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. He has also co-produced Alia Bhatt’s ‘Darlings’, which marks her debut as a film producer. He also backed the standalone film on ‘Bob Biswas’, featuring Abhishek Bachchan in the titular role, which was released last year.
Other than that, Shah Rukh Khan also backed the film ‘Love Hostel’, which starred Bobby Deol, Sanya Malhotra, and Vikrant Massey in the lead roles. He will also star in Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Dunki’, co-starring Taapsee Pannu. He will also star in ‘Jawan’ with Nayanthara.
