Such love for Shah Rukh Khan should not go amiss, what with the book, the love of the directors and how people are reacting to the milestone. Because, there have been superstars in his own generation
Shah Rukh Khan has now completed 25 illustrious years in Bollywood, and he still has the fire in him to rule for 25 more years.
#25yearsofSRK has been trending for the last couple of days so much that it was even threatening to eclipse the far bigger news of Narendra Modi banning Rs 500 andRs 1000 notes with immediate effect, and Donald Trump winning over Hillary Clinton in becoming the 45th President of United States of America. Writer and filmmaker Samar Khan has written a book on Shah Rukh Khan’s journey in Bollywood which is titled SRK 25 Years Of A Life, that was launched by Shah Rukh Khan himself. Samar Khan had earlier directed Arshad Warsi starrer Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye, in which Shah Rukh Khan had a cameo, and A Few Good Men-inspired Shaurya, in where Shah Rukh Khan had been a narrator. However his association with Shah Rukh Khan was way beyond these films, and he took it upon himself to interview most of the directors who have worked with Shah Rukh Khan to give more intrinsic details about the man and the actor. This also included the ever elusive Aditya Chopra, who rarely gives interviews even for his own films.
Such love for Shah Rukh Khan should not go amiss, what with the book, the love of the directors and how people are reacting to the milestone. Because, there have been superstars in his own generation who have completed 25 years in te industry, and yet for some reason, no one thought of penning down their travails on paper.
Here are these three superstars.
Debut: 1988 with Biwi Ho Toh Aisi
Though he had a low profile debut, his second film Maine Pyar Kiya made him the idol of many mallion fans, something he still continues to do flawlessly over the years. He is now the undisputed box office king of Bollywood with his recent movies all breaking records left right and center. Though he has completed 25 years back a couple of years ago, let’s hope that his 30th anniversary will a grander occasion in 2018
Debut: 1984 with Holi
Whether you want to consider Holi or 1988 movie Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak as his adult debut film, Aamir Khan has been in the industry for more than 25 years. In fact he has been in the industry for more than three decades in your consider his debut as Holi. So why not a biography on Mr Perfectionist? We really want to know what goes on in his mind when he prepares for a role. Or why he really cried after watching Katti Batti. Just saying…
Debut: 1991 with Saugandh
Though he is younger than all the three Khans, he has also completed 25 years in Bollywood. Akshay Kumar’s journey in Bollywood is actually the most mesmerising compared to the rest of the actors in the list, since he was nearly written off by critics as a one note actor who can only shine in Khiladi movies, once upon a time. Now he is one of the most bankable stars, delivering back to back hits even if they all belong to different genres. What a stylish comeback!
