Bollywood has grown over the years, matching several other movies all over the world. Notwithstanding, one can’t leave actor Shah Rukh Khan from the magnificence. The Indian star has without any help bring back single film screens to India.
The superstar has throughout the years been lifting the banner of his country as the emperor of Bollywood. Currently, Shah Rukh Khan has a new film out called “Jawan”, which has set the Indian film industry ablaze with the most highest ever collection of the first-day figure of₹75 crore across India.
“Jawan” which was released on September 7 and went on to break a record by netting 85 crore on the day he released his film weeks ago. As it turns out, the new bar for Shahrukh Khan is just Khan himself as “Jawan” broke the movies records of his prior “Pathan,” which saw Khan return following a five-year break.
Shah Rukh Khan is only one of India’s special and daring actors, who has been hailed by directors as a top and simple person to work with. In fact, one of the directors Sanjay Gupta recently affirmed this on X, previously known as Twitter, and posted,
“back in the 90s when the underworld bullying of the film stars was at its peak, Khan was the only star who never gave in. ‘Goli maar doh par tumahrey liye kaam nahi karoonga, mei Pathan hoon’ (Shoot me, but I will never work with you. I am a Pathan).”
Aside from his first love, which is acting, Shah Rukh Khan has also resolved political centered issues including corruption and the issues that plague India. At a point, his son Aryan was imprisoned for a month during the pandemic in a phony drug case, but Khan kept on with his way of tending to all ‘rots’ in the country.
Unfortunately, Khan is generally disliked by the followers of a specific philosophy basically along these lines — his all out refusal to stoop before power. It got to a point, all his films were box office flops, and he was in the news for comments on intolerance. A period when he was called a “terrorist” by an important leader of a political party.
Despite this multitude of challenges, Khan has rehashed himself as the emperor of the movies, which is the main metric that is important in Bollywood.
Initially part of the Khan trinity that controlled the movies for quite a long time, Khan with Aamir and Salman Khan ruled as the king of romance. But, as the other two struggle with the reality of ageing and flops, Khan has reinvented himself as an action hero with a conscience.
Meanwhile, his Daughter Suhana Khan will also make her acting debut later this year.
