This year Bollywood saw some big blockbuster hits at the box office. Cinephiles welcomed a few debutants and also appreciated the talent of the young brigade. However, year by year it has become a tradition of watching Shah Rukh Khan opening his arms and spelling his magic on the silver screen. Deep in our hearts, we all miss the King of Bollywood! But this void space is not going to be filled as there is no SRK film releasing in 2019. The actor who is on an interim break was last seen in Anand L.Rai’s ‘Zero’ which was released last year, alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
Reportedly, SRK is going through scripts and is waiting for the right opportunity. Recently, in an interview with Rajeev Masand, he said that he has not signed any film as yet. He also stated that he has been hearing a lot of stories of late, not just for himself but for his production house as well.
The thought of not having Baadshah’s release is unacceptable. Although he can be seen on other platforms doing other projects, a true SRKian will always cherish to watch their superstar on 70mm.
Therefore we decided to reminisce some best of his performances and give a breather to all the SRKians. Here are the 5 iconic films of Shah Rukh you can revisit.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995)
Raj and Simran’s love story has become immortal which every girl or a boy wish to live. DDLJ is known for SRK’s impeccable performance as the charming and flirtatious Raj Malhotra who falls in love with a simple girl Simran aka Kajol. The one-liners like ‘palat,’ and ‘bade bade deshon main aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hai,’ ‘jaa simran jaa jee le apni zindagi’ became very popular and are even recited today. The story of a guy fighting for an ordinary girl transformed Shah Rukh into a romantic hero overnight.
Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994)
Shah Rukh Khan’s one of the celebrated films’ ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ is still fresh in minds. SRK’s character Sunil touched several hearts and audiences love to watch this film over and over again.

‘Kuch kuch hota hai, tum nahi samjhoge’ now this line is very close to our hearts. The movie creates a magic that leaves viewers spellbound regardless of how many times one watches. Rahul, Tina and Anjali’s story of love and friendship must have made you cry, didn’t it? During college days, Anjali (Kajol) starts loving her best-friend Rahul (SRK), but he falls in love with Tina (Rani) who later dies in the film. After a couple of years, Rahul’s daughter reunites her father and Anjali. From a college hunk to a father, SRK has excelled in the way he essayed Rahul.
Shah Rukh’s portrayal as a NASA scientist Mohan Bhargava who travels to India to bring his nanny Kaveri amma back to the U.S. with him was loved by all the cinephiles. The process of him discovering his roots and love for his country and people was showcased brilliantly on the big screen. SRK delivered a very moving and real performance that struck all the right chords!
Chak De! India (2007)
Shah Rukh Khan scored a perfect goal with this film.
