For every SRK fan out there, here's sharing with you movie stills of some of King Khan's most popular movies that definitely make you nostalgic.
Darr, a psychological romantic thriller had SRK play the role of an obsessive lover, Rohan Mehra. The film released a year after his debut and he was already essaying a negative role. That was quite a risk he took but it put him in a different league altogether.
Another negative character that won him a lot of praise. Not many are aware but Sanjay Dutt was the first choice for this role.
Karan Arjun had Salman Khan and SRK playing brothers. The film had fans vouching for this jodi thanks to their reel and real bromance. Kajol played Shah Rukh's love interest in the film.
Raise your hands up if you remember this iconic scene from Dil Toh Paagal Hai!
Josh was box office dud but fans loved watching Shah Rukh as 'Max' who was nothing less than a gulla ka gunda
He played a rather different character - Kishan in Paheli
Not just SRK but EVERYTHING about K3G was, is and will always be EPIC. Thank you, Karan Johar.
