Shah Rukh Khan a.k.a. Badshah of Bollywood turns 52 today. Hailing from a humble middle-class family and after having spent more than 25 years in the Hindi film industry, Khan has reached the peak of Bollywood hierarchy through a combination of grit, hard work, and talent.
Khan who has given us memorable characters such as Ajay/Vicky in Baazigar, Sunil in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, Raj in DDLJ, Amarkant Varma in Dil Se.. Aman in Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kabir Khan in Chak De! India, and Mohan Bhargav in Swades, is extremely articulate off screen, may it be intimate interviews or hosting award functions, his witty one-liners make him stand out as one of the more intelligent artists working in the entertainment industry.
SRK who enjoys almost 30M followers on the microblogging site Twitter doesn't disappoint here either. His wit and charm on the platform are as refreshing as ever.
He entered the Twitterverse by writing, "hi everyone. being extremely shy i never thought i would be here. but my friend @kjohar25 insisted that i should learn to share my life."
