New Delhi: The King, the Badshah, the Baazigar, the Don — what else should we call superstar Shah Rukh Khan who still continues to rule over billions of hearts worldwide.
The superstar doesn’t need any introduction as words may fall short to describe him. SRK has won millions of hearts as Raj, Rahul Kabir Khan and many more.
Today, we would like to reveal some of his unknown facts, which only a die hard Shah Rukh Khan fan would be aware of.
Let’s begin with his childhood notorious acts:
While SRK was four, he used to throw stones at his neighbor’s house and once he broke a child’s teeth staying there. Later that night, the child’s father in drunk condition reached Shah Rukh’s house and threatened his father that he’ll kill his impish kid. His dad crosschecked with him as to whether or not he committed this act of mischief. When the actor confessed so, his dad asked him to go out and explain himself to the man who was not only drunk but also armed. Shah Rukh went outside and apologised for his deed.
SRK was an all-rounder in school. Along with studies, he also took active part in numerous co-curricular activities. For this he also won the Raman Subramanyam Award in Class 10th in 1983 and the Sword of Honour in 12th standard 1985 for the best all round performance, loyalty, obedience, integrity, and sportsmanship.
The college where he studied was Delhi University’s Hans Raj College, and Shah Rukh did his Economics Honours from the institution between1985-88. When Hans Raj celebrated its Golden Jubilee, the college gave away 17 shields to its alumni who excelled in their lives and professions and Shah Rukh was one of them.
After his graduation from Hans Raj, SRK went on to join Jamia Millia Islamia’s Mass Communications Research Centre to do his masters in filmmaking and journalism. It was his first step into the entertainment world.
Shah Rukh was, in fact, uncomfortably possessive about his lady love, Gauri, whom he lovingly calls Gaurima.
He loved her so much that even didn’t hesitate to quarrel. It is said that the actor couldn’t even stand Gauri wearing a bikni in a swimming pool. Following this extra possessiveness Gauri lost her temper and came to Mumbai without informing SRK. Shah Rukh followed her to the huge city and kept looking for her around the beaches because he knew Gauri was attracted to sea beaches in a big way. Later, a cab guy advised him to go to Aksa Beach and Gorai Beach. After searching anxiously, he managed to track her down.
SRK considers himself a better father than an actor. He has taught both his kids Suhana and Aryan to admire the co-existence of Ganpati and Allah in his house Mannat itself. They have been taught so brilliantly that when Shah Rukh was having a critical neck surgery, Aryan went to the temple and offered an Islamic prayer so that his father could get well soon.
Shah Rukh Khan is a Muslim but he celebrates Diwali and Christmas along with Eid every year. He keeps a Lakshmi Pooja every year in his office and at home. He even has a Christmas tree at home and among all the festivals, Shah Rukh’s kids love Christmas the most.
There are billions of fans of SRK and it would be really tough to sift out a few among them. But among them all, SRK still remembers his first lady fan who admired him even before he became a film star and knows him since his theatre days. SRK recalls she used to shout his name on the middle of the road when she spotted him. That’s an unforgettable moment for King Khan.
SRK reveals on Twitter that he’s not a good swimmer. “I feel shy swimming in front of ppl also not a good swimmer. Swim or sink or just don’t get into water my philosophy.”
Shah Rukh Khan while shooting for Dilwale took a selfie with his father’s favourite actress Tanuja, whose daughter Kajol was the heroine in the movie.
King Khan then posted the picture on Twitter with the caption “With my fathers favourite actress….”The Ber (berries) Liyo, Meva Gareebon Ka Babe” song…Tanujaji…Tanu aunty”
There is a big list of SRK’s favorite cuisines but there is also one which he dislikes. Any guesses? Well, he hates ice-cream.
Ups and downs have been a part of one’s life but when Baadshah is depressed he goes quietly to his kids and hugs them to overcome his sadness.
Keeping beards have been in fashion and SRK looked best with it in ‘Chak De India’, ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and recently in Happy New Year. But offscreen SRK hates to keep beard as he and his kids finds it scratchy.
One of the reasons why Shah Rukh bought Mannat, his palatial bungalow, was since he wanted to have an exclusive prayer room. Shah Rukh says that if he ever breaks financially, he will sell everything but Mannat.
Shah Rukh Khan can be managed best only by his wife as she understands him the most. She is the only person who can command Shah Rukh to do things while his daughter Suhana imitates her mother Gauri very well by saying in a strict voice, “Shah Rukh, eat your food.”
Shah Rukh never asks anything for himself from God. It is always his family and his close people he prays for. But whenever he wants to ask for himself, he never goes to a temple but goes to his parent’s grave. He believes that whatever he wishes will be fulfilled by praying there and yes most of them have come true which makes Shah Rukh’s belief all the more strong.
Shah Rukh requires a lot of his own space for himself and his near and dear ones understand that. Whenever Shah Rukh is angry, he needs to be left alone or you will only make him angrier.
Shah Rukh loves watching movies in the darkness of his car. He loves watching movies alone and peacefully.
Shah Rukh is a complete game freak. In fact he turns everyone around him into a game fanatic and he can’t resist getting his hands on the new games. It’s often said; never let your child inside you die even if you grow older.
