After a brief lull, SRK is back in the thick of things. Chennai Express, the latest film to roll out of his studio, has become Bollywood’s biggest blockbuster. This swashbuckling showman’s movies are renowned for their high production standards that ensure manifold returns, cementing his reputation as the Bollywood Badshah.
SRK has already achieved cult status and his movies’ overseas box office receipts have left him peerless in the industry. SRK had successfully dabbled in television in the early stages of his career before scaling new heights in the Hindi film industry. A recipient of numerous awards, SRK has been always humble about it.
SRK has had his share of controversies too. His religious inclinations have been a talking point among the orthodox. It is widely known that his wife is a practicing Hindu. As a celebrity, his personal life, including stories of marital discord, have provided grist for the rumour mills. Yet, despite controversies and distractions, SRK has remained grounded and focused on his work.
Thank you, SRK. Thanks a lot for your yeoman contributions to the world of showbiz. Thank you for producing films like ‘Rang De Basanti’, ‘Barfi’, ‘Peepli Live’, ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ and many more.
This is a tribute to you, dear SRK, a.k.a. Siddharth Roy Kapur.
