Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan is a year older. The actor turns 57, one of the Hindi film performers who has shown the world that talent and hard work can get you where you want to be. Twitter began the countdown, as usual, yesterday, as SRK is the topic of conversation. As Pathaan, SRK’s birthday, and Shah Rukh Khan are trending on Twitter in honor of his birthday, fans are eager for more sneak peeks from his next films. In Yash Raj Films’ much-awaited Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan will play a kind of spy-patriot. Pre-birthday greetings for the celebrity were exchanged on the site, along with updates on the Pathaan teaser and the anticipation of fans for SRK to appear on Mannat as usual on his birthday.
Birth & History
Abdur Rehman “Shahrukh” Khan was born in New Delhi in 1965 to Meer Taj Mohammed Khan and Lateef Fatima Khan. That “rags to riches” storyline is exactly what the biography of SRK is. He is “the outsider” who moved to Mumbai, toiled in the acting business, and eventually rose to fame as a compassionate Bollywood star. He was raised in a middle-class home where his father moved about from one business to another without ever having a reliable source of income. His grandparents raised him during his formative years in Bangalore. Through his father’s catering company at the National School of Drama in New Delhi, he was introduced to the close-knit community of theatre professionals and may have developed a passion for it. At the age of 16, he lost his father, and at the age of 26, his mother passed away. He made his television acting debut in 1989 with the TV series Fauji, which led to the success of Circus in 1990.

In order to avoid unemployment, he worked part-time at everything he could (Idiot by Mani Kaul, Umeed , Wagle Ki Duniya, and English-language television film In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones). Shah Rukh Khan had only planned to act in three to four films during his early career in Bollywood before returning to Delhi to care for his mother, who was dying. He achieved success in the field so swiftly, though, that he was forced to take some time off. The rest, as they say, is history.
