Shah Rukh Khan is the man who taught the meaning of love to an average Indian guy. He’s a quintessential lover, while Aamir Khan is best in content niche movies, on the other hand, Salman Khan is having a macho image of Bhai intact. Shah Rukh Khan has been joyfully playing the passionate lover. Unneeded to say, the actor has prejudiced the entire generation, that grew up in the late ’90s, and largely formed the initiative of passionate love. The actor made us all desperate romantics. He built an empire from scratch and carved a slot in every Indian’s heart. SRK has proved that “Passion is the largest trait of all.” Let’s have a look at the actor’s top 5 performances as the lover boy:
1) Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
He became the epitome of fervent love. Nobody, I repeat nobody could love as fervently as him. At that time, he was every girl’s dream boy. Every girl wanted a lover like him. DDLJ is still Shah Rukh Khan’s much loved and acclaimed film, where the actor played a lover boy for the very first time. The movie set many records including the best actor award for SRK and completion of 20 years at the Maratha Mandir. DDLJ is the prime blockbuster of the entire time has Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol at their romantic paramount. The long run it has proves what an eternal classic it is.
2) Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Shah Rukh Khan’s character as Rahul won the heart of every spectator and his lady love when he silently confessed his love to Anjali and watches in moans as she is brought onward for her wedding with Aman (Salman Khan). Shahrukh Khan’s stand out act in the character of an immature romantic in love with Rani Mukherjee and later as a grown-up man coming to stipulations that he loves his best friend Anjali.
3) Dil Toh Pagal Hai
Shah Rukh Khan character of Rahul, a boss of dance group who lives with a fantasy of just right woman Maya in his mind. He tries to craft his hallucination on stage with Nisha (Karisma Kapoor) but destiny brings in Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) into his life. The camaraderie sandwiched between the two leads, who hesitate to articulate their love for each other, is captured marvellously. The 90’s generation boys instinctively tried to make an effort in order to become Shah Rukh Khan, the lover boy. The well-known whistle of “Dil Toh Pagal Hai” turned out to be the fresh pick-up line.
Shah Rukh Khan’s character of Raj Aryan, who set up love and romance to the Gurukul which is run by a harsh disciplinarian Narayan Shankar. The actor wages his battle for love, using a violin as a weapon and memories of stunning beauty Aishwarya Rai by his side, making life easy for 6 other youngsters. The entire generation of guys mimicked his manner, his hairdo and wrapped the “Mohabbatein” sweater over the shoulders became a thing for aspirant Romeos as well as the college hunks.
5) Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
This is the film which deserves a special mention as one of the best romantic films of King Khan because the actor plays the role of Surinder Sahni (not the striking eye-catching Rahul or Raj despite the fact that one of them comes back afterwards) who dresses in a nondescript outfit, talks hesitatingly, drives his scooter cautiously and above all, he is a government employee. In simple words, he is far off from a romantic hero of the silver screen. The movie showcases, how he wins his combat over his additional avatar of Raj who doesn’t keep a moustache, wears flashy tees, ostentatious glares and has a spiky hairstyle, forms the narrative of the film. Shahrukh portrayed the two opposite characters brilliantly, above all the part of Surinder Sahni enacted excellently by the actor.
