Bollywood Baadshah Shah Rukh Khan celebrates 23 years of outstanding work in cinema today, June 25.
The actor is often looked upon as an example of hard work and perseverance after he made it to the top of the leading actor’s list, especially since he had no Godfathers in the industry, nor did he come from a filmy background.
Twenty three years ago, on this very date, Shah Rukh Khan’s debut film ‘Deewana’ was released.
Since then Shah Rukh Khan has gone on to be named as the King of Romance, thanks to his heart-melting performances in films like ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’, ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘Devdas’ to name a few from the long list.
The actor’s ever-faithful Twitterati wished the actor on his anniversary in Bollywood and within no time the hashtag #23GoldenYearsOfSRK began to trend.
His negative roles in ‘Baazigar’ and ‘Darr’ at the start of his career earned him a lot of appreciation and his other notable work was seen in films like ‘Karan Arjun’, ‘Pardes, ‘Swades’ and ‘Veer-Zaara’.
Shah Rukh Khan’s recent releases ‘My Name is Khan’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Happy New Year’ also went on to become huge commercial hits.
Shah Rukh Khan is currently filming for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Dilwale’ along with Kajol. The actor will also be seen in ‘Fan’ and ‘Raees’.
SRK was busy cycling in Bulgaria, the actor tweeted a pic of his from the sets of ‘Dilwale.’
