Shah Rukh Khan does not have to work in an American sitcom or do a Hollywood movie to become a global icon. The 53-year-old Bollywood superstar actor with a career spanning over almost three decades has taken the charm of Hindi cinema to those parts of the world where even English is not a primary language! SRK has huge non-Indian fans across the globe, including a handful of Indonesian fans who have recreated King Khan’s 1998 film “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” title track. This fan version video of the song “Tum Paas Aaye” originally featuring Shah Rukh, Kajol and Rani Mukerji is pure gold. Peru Loves Shah Rukh Khan!

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, ace filmmaker Karan Johar’s directorial movie (probably his best till date) had everything – college romance, a love triangle, ugly duckling to beautiful swan transformation (don’t judge me), best friends to lovers, romance in the rain, rona-dhona and dher sara pyar. I mean there’s hardly any trope that KJo left out of his first picture. KKHH also boasted off a great soundtrack and its title track “Tum Paas Aaye” remains a fan-favourite till date.
