Shah Rukh Khan birthday: The King Khan of the Bollywood industry is celebrating his 58th birthday today and gearing up for his upcoming film Dunki, directed by Rajkumar Hirani. Shah Rukh Khan made a comeback to the big screen after almost 4 years and he stunned everyone by setting new records with his films Pathaan and Jawan. Now, he is gearing up for another release in 2023 and fans are excited to see him once again in a new role because he set the stakes higher with his performances in Pathan and Jawan.
His recently released film Jawan garnered a lot of attention because the film showcased several social issues of farmers, doctors etc which made the fans excited. On his special day, let’s take a look at some of his amazing movies that gave a message and connected socially in a wonderful way. From Pathan to Swades, let’s take a look at these movies.
His recently released film Jawan was not focused on only one story. The movie conveys a powerful social message on problems including the dysfunctional political system, difficulties farmers endure, and shortcomings in the healthcare system. It highlights the ability of the index finger to allow voters to actively influence the course of their nation during elections.
Swades shows the story of a scientist who leaves everything behind to serve his village and country with his intelligence and resources. It shows the story of a successful NRI (non-resident Indian) Mohan Bhargava works at NASA’s technological forefront in the United States. He travels back to his hometown, driven by nostalgia, with hopes of locating the nanny who nurtured him there and bringing her back to the United States. His voyage takes him to the village of Charanpur in rural India, where he embarks on an inward and an outer search to discover his true place in the world.
Chak De India
Who else doesn’t remember Shah Rukh Khan’s iconic motivating dialogue from the movie Chak De India? The movie featured the story of ex-team India Hockey captain Kabir Khan who lost a match against Pakistan and the country started giving hate to him. He trained the Indian girls’ hockey team and made them win the World Cup which made him earn respect in the country.
King Khan’s comeback movie Pathan showcased the story of a spy who is a deadly fighter and a very intelligent spy. The agency sends him on a mission to catch John Abraham so that he can fail in his endeavour of devastating the world with his virus. The film showed the dedication of a wise officer towards his country.
Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa
The protagonist of Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa is a young man named Sunil (played by Shah Rukh Khan), a “loser” who is good in his heart but a failure in life and love. The lead vocalist, Anna (Suchitra Krishnamoorthi), is the object of his affection, although she primarily views him as a friend. She is in love with her friend Chris (Deepak Tijori). The movie presented us with a friend zone when it was not a popular term. It also served as a lovely reminder that love cannot be forced, no matter how powerful your feelings may be.
Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani
The film shows Shah Rukh and Juhi portray two very competitive TV reporters who will stop at nothing to secure a story. They work for competing networks. Paresh Rawal portrays a normal man who is turned into a political scapegoat and sentenced to hang, making him a victim of injustice. After discovering the truth, the two reporters utilize the media to hold the politicians accountable. With the aid of media-obsessed mobster Johnny Lever, they manage to pull this off despite the resistance of their greedy employers, power-hungry politicians, and dishonest police.
My Name is Khan
In the Karan Johar-directed film, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol play the key roles. The story centres on an Indian Muslim guy (Rizwan Khan) with Asperger’s syndrome, a type of autism that affects his capacity for social interaction. He gets arrested on suspicion of being a terrorist in the 9/11 incident that happened in Los Angeles.
