Shah Rukh Khan is one of those actors who has given us films to cherish, reasons to fall in love and ways to handle heartbreaks like a boss. We cannot imagine anyone in our country who has not used any of his dialogues to describe a situation or just as an expression. As he is turning 51 today, let us give a throwback to dialogues that make him not only the king of Bollywood but king of hearts as well.
Bade Bade desho mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai, Senorita
This is an iconic dialogue from the iconic film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. The film has won accolades for years and even now, it gets the maximum viewership whenever it airs on television. This dialogue has taught us that no matter how big a mistake you make, everything will be alright eventually. And then there is another, “Agar yeh tujhse pyar karti hai, toh palat kar zaroor dekhegi, palat…,” which has a similar effect on us.
Rahul, Naam toh suna hoga
The dialogue from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in which Shah Rukh says ‘Rahul, Naam toh suna hoga‘ has been used hundreds of times in Indian cinema ever since. In fact, even in our general lives if we meet somebody who is Rahul then this dialogue is a must say. Hell, Karan Johar used it in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with a minor twist. Makes for one great opening line.
Haar ke jeetne wale ko hi baazigar kehte hai
Now remember the time when you would just let your friend win a race or a competition but you do not want to feel like a loser, what would you say to yourself? Well, the apt dialogue that SRK gave us with Baazigar was, “Haar ke jeetne wale ko hi baazigar kehte hai”, which eventually made us feel like a winner even when we lost.
K k k k Kiran
Of course, if we are talking about his old films, how can we not talk about his famous ‘Kiran’ dialogue? His dialogue from Darr did create a lot of horror for people who had either one-sided lovers or were simply called Kiran. We bet that you have used it yourself when talking to the Kiran in your life.
Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost
It is not over till Shah Rukh Khan says it is over. Remember this iconic dialogue from Om Shanti Om? Use it when faced with a disappointment, it works like a charm every time. And we have got another one for you from the same film for those tough days when you need some pep talk: “Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho to puri kainath usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai.”
Kaun kambakht bardaasht karne ko peeta hai…
With Shah Rukh Khan’s Devdas, unrequited love found an icon. Trying to find succour in a bottle? Can’t do it without SRK’s famous dialogue.
“Kaun kambakht bardaasht karne ko peeta hai … hum toh peete hai ki yahan par baith sake, tumhe dekh sake, tumhe bardaasht kar sake.”
