Facts you didn’t know about Shah Rukh Khan
The King, the Badshah, the Baazigar, the Don — what else should we call superstar Shah Rukh Khan who has turned 48 and continues to rule over billions of hearts worldwide.The superstar doesn’t need any introduction as words would be less to describe his achievements. But on his 48th birthday we would like to reveal some unknown facts about King Khan.
Let’s begin with his childhood notorious acts.
While SRK was four, he used to throw stones at his neighbor’s house. Once he broke a child’s teeth staying there. Later that night, the child’s father, drunk, knocked at SRK’s house. Khan’s father opened the door and the man threatened to kill SRK.
Father crosschecked with Shah Rukh as to whether or not he had committed the act of mischief. When he confessed, 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 took 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 had excelled in their life 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. He can’t stand Gauri wearing a bikni in a swimming pool. His possessiveness towards her led Gauri to lose her temper and she 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 when she was standing in water.
SRK considers himself a better father than an actor. He has taught both his children 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. But 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. remembers 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.”
There are numerous cuisines which SRK loves but there is also one in his dislike list. The star hates to have 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’ and will also be witnessed with the same in his upcoming flick “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”. But offscreen SRK hates to keep beard as he and his kids finds is 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 broke, he will sell everything except 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 Gauri Khan 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 asks 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 will ask there will be fulfilled 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 gaming freak. Shahrukh can’t wait to get his hands on the new Games.
It’s often said, never let your child inside die even if you grow older. SRK, keep your childish attitude alive forever as we wish this King of Romance a very Happy Birthday.
