Career Profile

There are a lot of qualities Shah Rukh Khan shares with both his predecessors and his contemporaries. While there are those who claim he's nothing more than a clever amalgamation of Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan, there are others who swear he's made a fine art of hamming ('Darr's' K..K..K..Kiran being the classic example) and is yet to graduate beyond six set expressions.

However, there's one characteristic to Shah Rukh's personality that no one can even hope to match _ his boundless energy. You could be his worst critic, but whether he's guiding you through a mindless comedy like 'Duplicate' or an intense romance like 'Dil Se..' his own passion is infectious. It's something you cannot shrug off easily and it is, perhaps, the essence of his charisma.

The other attribute that sets him apart is his mind-boggling self-confidence. How else can you explain a small-time television actor from Delhi getting quick breaks like 'Deewana' (1992) and 'Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa' (1993) _ both won him high praise _ and then putting his newfound career on he line with a trilogy of negative characters. 'Baazigar' (1992), 'Darr' (1993) and 'Anjaam' (1994) were risks no established star would have taken _ in fact he got 'Darr' only after Aamir Khan turned it down.

Early in his career, Khan was recognised for his unconventional choice of portraying negative roles in films including Darr (1993), Baazigar (1993), and Anjaam (1994). He then rose to prominence by playing a series of roles in romantic comedies and dramas including Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995), Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001). Khan later earned wide critical acclaim in the drama Devdas (2002), for his portrayal of a NASA scientist in Swades (2004), as a hockey coach in Chak De! India (2007), and as the titular character in My Name Is Khan (2010).

In 2011, Khan produced and starred alongside Arjun Rampal and Kareena Kapoor in Anubhav Sinha's science fiction superhero film Ra.One.Khan's second release of 2011 was Don 2, a sequel to the 2006 hit Don. Khan's only release in 2012 was Yash Chopra's romantic drama Jab Tak Hai Jaan.In August 2013, Khan produced and appeared in Rohit Shetty's action comedy Chennai Express. The film earned mixed critical reviews, broke many box office records for Hindi films in both India and abroad.In March 2014, Khan signed director Rahul Dholakia's next film, titled Raees and co-starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui. He also signed Maneesh Sharma's film Fan, which was produced by Excel Entertainment and Yash Raj Films respectively. In July, Khan finished filming for Farah Khan's ensemble comedy Happy New Year, which co-stars Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani.

But such is Shah Rukh's stature today, that neither the success nor failure of any particular film is likely shake people's faith in him. 'King' Khan is here for a long and glorious innings that is just beginning to shape up.
