Conventionally handsome guys do not become true romantics, and the idea of romance has been built on the premise that it is not the handsome face that counts, what counts is the intensity to love, express it through actions and the demeanor. The mantle of King of Romance that has now become the sine quo non for Shahrukh Khan has graduated through this process of intense love on the screen and he has been fortunate enough to have been given such opportunity to dabble in genre of romanticism in as different ways as could be possible. On the occasion of his birthday, here is a journey through the different phases of his acting oeuvre which have been the catalyst in giving him the title of King of Romance.
BAAZIGAR and DARR
DEEWANA: Right from his very first film in which he made his debut he did not have gumption to fall in love with a widow aka Divya Bharati and to fight against the system to express his love for her. This could perhaps have been one of the reasons for initiation of his phenomenal fan following among the ladies, as for him the social status of a lady was not important what was important was that he had fallen in love with her.
BAAZIGAR: A lover who used his charm to entrap the lady love as he wanted revenge for the family and to seek revenge he used love as the tool to entrap the girl from the family which had been the cause of bad days for the family. BAAZIGAR formed the basis for a platform for emergence of one of the hottest on-screen pairs Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.
DARR: An obsessive lover who goes to manic levels for his lady love, it was for the first time that such a lover boy was unleashed on the screen and it caught the imagination of the country. Shah Rukh Khan himself has said that the role that he enacted in DARR was a watershed role in the history of Indian cinema in an interview to BBC.
KABHI HAAN KABHI NAA: A romantic should never give up the hope till he finds his love and who knows when the road block has come a new way could rise on the side walk, and this is why it is one of the most delectable performances of SRK.
