Why Shahrukh Khan remains the Baadshah of brands
Birthday boy Shahrukh Khan is so huge today that he is a brand on to himself. And it comes as no surprise that Bollywood’s Baadshah is a favourite of brands as well. From LML, Pepsi, Nokia, Hyundai, to Dish TV, D’decor, Lux, TAG Heuer, Byju’s – there’s hardly any category of brands that SRK has not endorsed.
It’s been a while since we saw SRK on the big screen – his last outing, ‘Zero’ in 2018, failed at the Box Office. But we are seeing him on the small screen, cheering for his team – Kolkata Knight Riders – at the ongoing IPL 2020 tournament in the UAE.
Delhi boy Shahrukh first caught the eye on DD serials such as ‘Fauji’, ‘Circus’ and ‘Doosra Keval’ in the late 1980s. He burst into the Bollywod scene with ‘Deewana’ for which he won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut in the year 1992. From playing the villain in films like ‘Darr’, ‘Baazigar’ and’Anjaam’, SRK turned into the quintessential Bollywood lover boy in hit after hit, including the mega blockbuster, ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge’, which recently completed 25 years. But the king of romance has tried his hand at other genres as well, with films like ‘Swades’, ‘Chak De India’, ‘Raees’, “Hey Ram’, ‘Asoka’, ‘Don’, ‘Fan’, and ‘My Name is Khan’.
Shahrukh Khan is also the co-owner of motion picture production company Red Chillies Entertainment, along with wife Gauri Khan.
