Shah Rukh appeared in television shows such as Fauji before making his Bollywood debut in 1992, with Deewana. He followed it up with films such as Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and King Uncle, and Baazigar and Darr.
He established himself as a leading man in the 90s, with hits such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Karan Arjun. Interestingly, Kumar Sanu sang several songs for SRK films. One fan wrote in the comments, “Kumar Sanu would have never imagined that he would sing most number of songs for the anchor!”
Shah Rukh’s most recent release was the critical and commercial failure, Zero. He said in a recent interview that he will announce his next project in the coming months. He said, “I am taking time. I am thinking. I am working on two-three scripts and as soon as they are ready, because I am ready and most of the people working are ready, I will announce it. Till that time, whatever rumours are going around, some of them have given me ideas.”
