Shah Rukh Khan's recent release Chennai Express set the box office registers buzzing. The Rohit Shetty's venture crossed Rs 100 crore mark with its ticket window collections within a week.
THE STRUGGLER (1988): This was the beginning of Shah Rukh Khan, who made his debut with the still remembered TV show, Fauji. Innocent and childish, he is still remembered as the kid who was trying his best, unknowingly taking giant leaps of faith towards superstardom.
THE CHARMER (1993): By the end of this year, he had already delivered hits such as Deewana, Baazigar and Darr. While pretty long hair and a fuller face came with age and fashion trend, his charm and daring chutzpah had already made him the next big thing to watch out for.
THE STAR ( 2004): Over a decade later, SRK had become the star one would idolise in and outside the country. His workaholic attitude and chain smoking had already started showing on his face but he was still the romantic hero.
THE BRAND (2006): He was 40 by now and had the face of a man, who was a brand in himself. Having mostly stayed clean shaven all his life and also known as the metrosexual star, SRK’s only fashion faux pas was when he tried a French beard. He soon got rid of it.
EXTREME GUY (2011): One of the most tiring years for him when he was working non-stop on RA.One and Don 2. While for the former, he tried a Beckham buzz look, the latter saw him sporting extensions, perhaps for the first time in life.
ROUGH GUY (2012) : The clean guy has now put on the rough, soldier-ly look for his upcoming flick, Jab Tak Hai Jaan. While it takes him back to the Army after Fauji, he has gone on record to say that he is in love with his new look.
An evening to remember
