Star Wars: Shah Rukh Khan vs. Salman Khan

The Twain Shall Meet

And they met - on-screen.

1995, the year that defined Shah Rukh Khan, giving him that upper hand, when he returned to his turf - that adorable young man, any mom would give her daughter without batting an eyelid.

'Karan Arjun', the pairing of Salman and Shah Rukh, was a box office super hit. Salman Khan was nominated for his role as Karan, the angry man against whom destiny conspired, for a popular film award.

But it was Shah Rukh Khan who walked to the victory-stand - to clinch the trophy for his endearing role as Raj in the all-time super-hit 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.'

Shah Rukh now was destined to be the 'good boy' of Bollywood; and much like the Karan of yore, Salman Khan found destiny casting the 'bad boy' tag - for reasons, perhaps, beyond his control.

Perhaps teaching the rest of us mortals on the fickleness of success, fame and whatever, this year, Salman Khan's 'Bodyguard' looks set or has surpassed the long-standing collection records of 'Dilwale...'.
