Acting is a profession that thrives on chemistry, the ability to improvise based on the interactions with the co-stars, take the audience into the zone of make-belief world and instill a feeling in the heart of the fan that indeed what is panning on the screen can be synonymous with reality.
Shahrukh Khan as an actor has been blessed with this advantage in his acting career, and it could be one of the prime catalysts which has made him one of the biggest movie stars around the world. It is the quotient of chemistry that sets the box-office on fire, and if one were to glance through the successful films in his career, one would find that the success has hinged to a great extent on the chemistry with his co-stars. On the eve of his birthday, here is a look at such co-stars who in their own way facilitated in making Shahrukh Khan what he is now:
Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla: It was the first pairing in his acting career that brought out the best in him as a performer, Juhi playing the perfect cool foil to his over the board performances and was perhaps catalyst in Shah Rukh Khan being conferred awards for his performance. The pairing started with RAJU BAN GAYA GENTLEMAN, was catalytic in making him an anti-hero in DARR (apparently it was Hrithik Roshan who had suggested DARR as the title for the film), YES BOSS, DUPLICATE and PHIR BHI DIL HAI HINDUSTANI. Shahrukh Khan's association with Juhi Chawla did not end with films in which they acted together, but it has got converted into business venture as well, both being partners in IPL team-Kolkata Knight Riders. Besides, Shahrukh Khan also formed a production company with Juhi, Dreamz Unlimited.
