The King, The Badshah of Bollywood ‘Shahrukh Khan‘ to complete 28 years in Bollywood tomorrow. Shahrukh made his movie debut in ‘Deewana‘ which was released on June 25, 1992. After exactly 28 years, his contribution to the Indian cinema is no less than a revolution in it’s own.
28 YEARS OF SHAHRUKH KHAN IN BOLLYWOOD
In the early days in his career, he starred in several Rom-Com and established himself as a dependable lead for such genre of films. The biggest hit of Shahrukh in the 90s was DDLJ(Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge). The movie got a worldwide recognition and appreciation for it. His other big hits were Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Baazigar, Baadshah, Darr and many more.
Later in the 2000s he signed some experimental films, which were revolutionary in Bollywood in many ways. Films like Devdas, Veer-Zaara, Swades, Chak De! India, My Name is Khan became massively successful but films like Asoka was left underappreciated. If you really want to celebrate his work then give the movie ‘Asoka’ a watch today, It’s available for free on Voot.
In all these years, he worked really hard to make himself a successful Individual. He reconstructed a failed production house, into one of the biggest in the country with his wife. He also owns a cricket club named Kolkata Knight Riders, which plays in the Indian Premier League(IPL).
His Career graph improved a lot in all of these years. But after 2017, his choice of films were not liked by fans at all. Back to back average movies like ‘Jab Harry met Sejal‘ and ‘Zero‘ left his superstar reputation hanging on the edge. His last film project was released back in 2018 after that there’s no other confirmed news of him signing a new one.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR SHAHRUKH KHAN?
Look there are rumours for months but in reality there’s no official confirmation by SRK that he signed any new project. Weeks ago, a rumour started circulating that he read around 20 scripts from different writers after Zero. But if the rumours are to be believed then there’s news that he is going to work with director Rajkumar Hirani next.
Look as an admirer of Shahrukh Khan, we all only want him to come back to the silver screen with a Big Bang. A man who won awards and accolades all around the world for his work don’t deserve any average looking film.
On behalf of his fans, I can say that they are ready to accept anything experimental or anything out of the box. Shahrukh is undoubtedly the face of Bollywood at the world stage. Fans want something new from him, some of them says “enough of these Rom-Com, deliver something unexpected sir“.
