20 Things We Love About Shah Rukh Khan

It's been a memorable 20 for the 46-year old King Khan. Here are 20 things we LOVE about him.

1. He speaks so well
The man's any interviewer's dream. SRK's charming eloquence and can battle its way out of the trickiest questions with characteristic wit and snazzy repartee.

Right from his first cool quote, 'When a movie flops we find hundreds of excuses, right from the colour of one's socks to the Great Wall of China' to his famous speech in Yale, 'I become heartbroken, angry and completely convinced that bananas and critics, both should have their skins peeled and fed to the monkeys.'
 

2. The entertaining intellectual

There's no doubting SRK's intelligence.Being one of the few educated celebrities in the film industry, his well-read and informed attitude is keenly reflected in his ideas and conversation.

3. What a success story!
Without a godfather or starry connections to boot, SRK conquered an infamously nepotistic Bollywood on his own terms and conditions.

In the last 20 years, among his many other accomplishments, he's worked with the likes of Yash Chopra, Subhash Ghai, Rakesh Roshan, Mani Rathnam, Kundan Shah, Aziz Mirza, Ketan Mehta, Abbas-Mastan, Ramesh Sippy, Mahesh Bhatt, Amol Palekar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Kamal Haasan, Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit while starring in the debut of currently top-notch filmmakers like Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar and Farah Khan.


4. His passionate streak
From featuring on simultaneous TV shows to promote his ambitiously-scaled superhero flick, Ra.One to developing a six-pack in his 40s for an item song in his earlier home production, Om Shanti Om, SRK is one ardent fellow.

5. Aww, look at those adorable dimples!
Be it Leonardo DiCaprio or Sharmila Tagore, dimples are an alluring  finishing touch on any beautiful face. SRK's not an epitome of pretty but, boy, can he work those tiny dents on his cheek!
So much that, some young men not only want to emulate his style but also sport similar dimples, by asking cosmetic surgeons to do the needful.

6. Dang, he's stylish!   
He's no clothes horse but the man sure knows how to dress up.
On big screen, we've dug his easygoing style in a white shirt and black trouser for Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, his hip leather jacket and denims look in Dilwake Dulhania Le Jayenge, his checkered casual shirts and khakis in Swades and his dapper dude avatar in Don.
Off screen, too, SRK's suave formals or fuss-free casuals cut a smart picture.

7. Three cheers for Mr Right
As much as we laud his incredible convictions as a bad guy making life hell for the dainty heroine, it's his positive side we've always rooted for.

He's so good at doing the right thing, this Khan. Whether it's telling his folks about his forged report cards and giving up the girl of his dreams in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, saying no to corruption in Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, refusing to compromise on ladylove for lavish career in Yes Boss, choosing the 'sahi raasta' in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, lighting bulbs in Swades, coaching an underdog team to win a championship in Chak De! India, feel free to add to this list.


8. 'Rahul, naam toh suna hoga'
There's a good reason why SRK's female fan following is greater than that of any other Khans.

No one can romance the heroine like a Raj, Sunil, Rahul or Aman.
From serenading her with the most bewitching lines to gazing into her eyes till the screen and she turn a shade of pink, SRK is designed to evoke a mass-scale kuch kuch hota hai.


9. His killer enthusiasm
Ask his co-workers and they'll tell you what a bundle of energy the man is.

Even if you don't have access to do so, you surely remember his cheer guy routine during the recently concluded IPL season? The owner of Kolkata Knight Riders was simply uncontrollable after his team won the cup.

The ecstatic star went all out to demonstrate the extent of his joy by jumping /dancing about, performing a spontaneous round of cartwheels and even offering an impulsive apology to his fans for his much public spat with Mumbai Cricket Association officials previously.

10. He's a man of his word
Okay, unless you're a writer or filmmaker who hasn't got his dues or his dates, you'll probably agree that SRK has lived up to his statement of never posing with another actress on a magazine cover unless it's part of a promotional campaign or consenting to intimate scenes with his co-stars on the big screen.

Now if only he'd kick that awful habit of smoking he's promised to so many times.

11. 'Haar ke jitnewale ko Baazigar kehte hain'
Though he's perceived as someone who's stuck doing the same old, same old, courtesy his soft corner for playing the proverbial romantic in film after film, SRK is quite a risk taker.
While his acting assignments don't underscore that so much, he's much more adventurous as a producer. Be it Asoka, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, Paheli, Om Shanti Om or Ra.One, there's nothing commonplace or safe about either of these projects.

And most of them didn't do well either. But it's his Baazigar motto that holds particularly true for his run as the owner of the down-in-the-dumps to we-are-the-champions story of IPL cricket team, Kolkata Knight Riders.

12. iKhan
Unlike actors who endorse laptops but don't even know how to use one, SRK's always been at ease around gadgets.
Said to own every latest piece of technology in his den, from e-book readers and gaming consoles to smart phones and ingenious gizmos that are better suited in a Don 2 sequel than Mannat, King Khan's dabbles in all things wired and wireless.

13.Impish charm:  He is a loveable rogue. The one who will deliberately delay his love interest so that she misses her train and they can spend more time together, but doesn’t take advantage of her. Other Khans tried it in other films, but failed to succeed.

14. He's a family guy
SRK lost his parents long before they could witness the phenomenon he would turn into.

That unmistakable longing and warmth with which he talks about them showcases a vulnerability his starry demeanor works hard to conceal.

Ditto for his protective stance and loving declarations of affection for his childhood sweetheart turned wife, Gauri, sister Lalarukh and his two greatest strengths and weakness alike -- children, Aryan and Suhana.

15. Love me, love my quirks
A dash of eccentricity never did a man any harm.

So SRK's brand of weirdo includes his non-foodie extremeness, can survive on four hours of sleep, loves to mix his perfumes, refuses to wear brown socks and will go to the extent of missing a flight if he can't find the right set to go with his shoes.

16. Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani
There's much to admire about how religion is treated in SRK's household.

Being married to a Hindu hasn't altered his faith nor expected any changes in his wife's. Pooja, namaz, allah, bhagwan, all enjoy a harmonious coexistence in the Mannat family with the virtues and decorum of both religions inculcated into their children Aryan and Suhana.

 
17. He can crack a joke. He can take a joke
SRK's cheeky sense of humour has always been one of his greatest draws whether he's lampooning his colleagues at awards functions or fooling around on chat shows.

Most importantly, he can make fun of himself.

SRK Hugging A Fan ..

18. Fan-tastic!
It's a proud feeling to have a Bollywood hero who is heralded as 'the world's biggest superstar' by the likes of Los Angeles Times.

SRK, not only enjoys huge loyal fanbase in India but other countries like UK, USA, Germany, Pakistan, Dubai, Morocco and Poland.

19. His sexy stubble
He's not the shirt dropping, muscle flexing Sexiest Man Alive types anyway.

But SRK's intense quality when teamed with a few days old stubble goes a long way in making him dishy and desirable at once.

Remember his Kabir Khan in Chak De! India or the sleek pony-tailed crook of Don 2?

Makes us wish SRK went bristly more often.
 

20. He's a believer
Because somewhere behind that Godzilla-sized ego and high-strung megamind is just a restless boy who build his own Neverland and never stopped believing.

  2. The e - Book workout program by Vince Del Monte does not
    aim at training the user as professional body builder, but as an average person who want to gain muscles on their bodies.
    Before you turn on me and say 'Thank you Captain Obvious', I want you to stop for a second and really try
    to gain an appreciation for the role of attitude in bodybuilding.
    Even though you are holding very heavy weights, it is a very safe form of
    exercise because you are holding the weight in the
    safest range of motion.
