Shahrukh Khan (born 2 November 1965), often credited as Shah Rukh Khan and informally referred as SRK, is an Indian film actor. Referred to in the media as "Badshah of Bollywood" or "King Khan", he has acted in 55 Hindi films in genres ranging from romantic dramas to action thrillers.[4][5] His work in India's film industry has garnered him numerous achievements, including fourteen Filmfare Awards from thirty nominations. His eighth Filmfare Best Actor Award win made him the most awarded Bollywood actor of all time in that category, tied only with actor Dilip Kumar. He was awarded with the Padma Shri by the Government of India in 2005, and the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the Government of France in 2007 for his contribution to films.
Starting his career appearing in theatre and several television series' in the late 1980s, he later made his Hindi film debut in 1992 with Deewana. Early in his career, Khan was recognised for his unconventional choice of portraying negative roles in films such as Darr (1993), Baazigar (1993), and Anjaam (1994). He later rose to prominence by playing a series of roles in romantic comedies or dramas like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995),[6] Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001).[7] The commercial success of these films earned him the tag of "the King of Romance".[6] Khan then subsequently earned wide critical appreciation for his portrayal of a NASA scientist in Swades (2004), a hockey coach in Chak De! India (2007), and as the titular characters in Devdas (2002) and My Name Is Khan (2010).[8][9] He further achieved commercial success with the superhero drama Ra.One (2011), the action thriller Don 2 (2011), Yash Chopra's swan song Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012) and Chennai Express (2013), all of which rank among the highest grossing Bollywood films of all-time. Fifteen of the films he has acted in, have accumulated gross earnings of over INR100 crore (US$15 million) worldwide,[10][11] making him one of the most successful leading actors of Hindi cinema.[12]
Khan occupies the position of co-chairman of the motion picture production and distribution company, Red Chillies Entertainment and the animation studio, Red Chillies VFX. He is also co-owner of the Indian Premier League cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders.[13] The year 2007 marked his debut as a television presenter with the Star Plus gaming show Kaun Banega Crorepati.[14] Khan is often labelled by the media as "Brand SRK" due to his various brand endorsement and entrepreneurship ventures. He has also been involved in philanthropic endeavors related to Health care, relief funds and children's education, for which he was honoured with the UNESCO's Pyramide con Marni award in 2011.[15][16] Khan is considered to be one of the biggest film stars in cinematic history, with a fan following claimed to number in the billions; in 2011, the Los Angeles Times called him "the world's biggest movie star."[17] He has also been regularly featured in the listing of the most influential names in Indian culture and in 2008, Newsweek named him one of the 50 most powerful people in the world.[18]
