ShahRukh's List!

Top 7 Blockbusters of Shah Rukh Khan


'Baazigar'

'Baazigar'

Shah Rukh Khan made his true entry into Bollywood with Abbas Mustan's thriller, 'Baazigar'.

SRK, in the movie, was a diabolic combination of charm and menace. He played a character that was so private, so controlled by inner needs that he was almost two persons in one body.

'Baazigar' was followed up by 'Darr', a flick of similar hue.

Release date: November 12, 1993

'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge'

'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge'

'Dilwale Dulhaniya...' established SRK as a romantic hero. Raj, the role played by Shah Rukh Khan, became synonymous with Bolly romance.

This Aditya Chopra film pioneered the 'NRI boy-meets-Desi girl' genre. The movie also gave us one of Bollywood's best loved on-screen couples - Shah Rukh and Kajol.

'DDLJ' paved way for Bollywood's mega entry into the NRI market. It also had the longest run in the history of Indian Cinema.

Release date: October 20, 1995

'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'

'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'

'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' was an inspirational love story, capturing the innocence and idealism of calf love!

It was an Indianised version of Archies, Betty and Veronica. Shah Rukh, Kajol and Rani Mukherjee played collegians. Bubblegum romance made its way into Bollywood through 'KKHH'.

The directorial debut of Karan Johar, KKHH was the highest grossing movie of 1998.

Release date: October 16, 1998

'Swades'

'Swades'

Ashutoush Gowariker's 'Swades' is a deeply moving tale of a man who "discovers himself". SRK plays the role of Mohan Bhargav, a NASA scientist' who rediscovers his roots and love for his country.

'Swades' is counted as one of SRK's most genuine performances.

The movie bombed at the Box-office but received critical acclaim.

Release date: December 17, 2004

'Don - The Chase Begins Again'

'Don - The Chase Begins Again'

SRK stepped into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan with Farhan Akhtar's remake of the 1978 film, 'Don'.

'Don - The Chase Begins Again' is technically sound and well shot by Farhan Akhtar. It is a slick, modern interpretation with a twist. SRK is brilliant as the cold and calculating Don.

Release date: October 20, 2006

'Chak De India'

'Chak De India'

'Chak De India' was a patriotic heatwarmer about an underdog Indian women's hockey team, which fights against all odds to emerge champions. It is also the story of a man's redemption!

SRK infused the role of Kabir Khan with grittiness and confidence never seen before.

'Chak De India' will be remembered as one of SRK's finest performance in a movie sans the regular Bollywood masala.

Release date: August 10, 2007

'Om Shanti Om'

'Om Shanti Om'

'Om Shanti Om' was homage to and parody of Bollywood. The movie was a true blue Bollywood masala movie.

Shah Rukh Khan plays a larger than life character, first as a junior artist and then a bratty star kid. He sails through the role with consummate ease.

The movie was one of the biggest hits of 2007

Release date: November 9, 2007
