Tahan mennessa olen pysytellyt Lufthansan lennon aikaisia Bollywood filmeja lukuunottamatta aika hyvin erillani Intialaisesta elokuvateollisuudesta.

Naina viikkoina ei voi kuitenkaan olla tormaamatta yhteen Bollywood elokuvan ikoneista.

Kyseinen henkilo on Shahrukh Khan: SRK, King of Bollywood, tai mita miehen monista lempinimista nyt sitten haluaakaan kayttaa. Tahteyden mittakaavasta kertoo esim se, etta Google antaa Shahrukh Khan haulla 4 700 000 tulosta… 


Talla viikolla televisiossa alkaa SRK:n elamasta kertova reality-sarja, mika onkin sitten todellinen merkkitapahtuma.

Pitkin viime viikkoja ollaan nahty televisiosta ohjelma jos toinenkin Shahrukh Khanista. Yhdessakin dokumenttiohjelmassa mm Delhin yliopiston kulttuuriantropologit pohtivat kyseisen herran ‘merkitysta intialaisen keskiluokan itsetunnon kehittymiselle ja arvostuksien muuttumiselle’.

Kyseessa on siis kaikkea muuta kuin ‘pelkka’ elokuvatahti, ainakin intialaisille.
Innolla odotankin perjantaina alkavaa sarjaa. Murentaako normielaman kaikelle kansalla jakaminen kaverin ymparilla leijailevaa sadekehaa, vai nostaako sarja paahenkilonsa astetta viela korkeammalle? Kohta loppuu kylla Intialaisellakin asteikolta portaat kesken.

Ehka minulle myos selviaa miksi SRK on niin huippusuosittu. Viela en ole henkilokohtaisesti taysin vakuuttunut :-)

Lisaa miehesta ja hanen tuotannostaa voivat kiinnostuneet lukea wikipediasta…


Intialaiseen tapaan on tarkeaa tietaa myos mita palkintoja seka kunnian- ja huomionosoituksia herra on saanut osakseen. Niista loytyykin aivan oma wikipedia sivu..




Who does not know Shahrukh Khan. He is the heart throb of all the Indian girls. Fans or distributors all trust Shahrukh Khan. For if its Shahrukh the movie is worth watching. 


Shahrukh Khan was born on 2nd november 1965. He was brought up in Delhi. He had done his schooling from 'St. Columba's school' and from 'Jamia Millia Islamia' he had done Mass Communication. 


Shahrukh started his career on a TV serial called "Fauji" which has given him instant recognition. He also acted in another TV soap called "Circus". His debut film was Deewana which open the doors of film industry for him. He was playing a second hero in it but his work was appreciated. After that there was no looking back. Shah Rukh Khan has won several awards for his outstanding performance in Darr (1994), Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Baadshah (1999) ...etc. He also formed a popular screen couple with Kajol. 


He's now a successful producer too with Chalte Chalte. His production company "Dreamz Unlimited" is shared with other two people... one is actress, friend, co-star Juhi Chawla and another is director and friend Aziz Mirza. 

He is being called 'King Khan' and 'Badshah of Bollywood'. his films are like ISI mark. He has reached to the position of choice where his films flops or hits their release is an awaited affair. Things which makes him apart from other actors are his average looks, fast speech, soulful eyes, dimples on checks, thick lips and most imp is his saying 'I'm the best'. He feels acting is making unbelievable believable. He feels he become a better actor after acting in his two films which are also close to his heart... Dil Se and Kal Ho Naa Ho. 


While studying he fell in love with Gauri Chibba who was then studying in Loreto Delhi. He later married her before coming into films. The most talented and hard working actor known to have an inflated ego, for which he works hard to keep it floating. He is having two children a son "Aryaan" and a daughter. He loves his children very much.These day he had started reading books on science as he dont want to be sound like a stupid dad, when they'll ask him which is bigger, Uranus or Saturn. He teaches them one new thing everyday. it could be names of Fidel Castro, Michael Schumacher, Osama Bin Laden or a place a name. He is planning to read maths in another two/three years. 


He feels for the younger generation that should follow his zest for life and love of doing the best they can. They should believes that there is a purpose in life that you supposed to fulfill follows it wholeheartedly. And never give up when you stumble and not taken seriously
