Shahrukh has ruled the hearts of fans with his every character. So far, fans have become fond of Shah Rukh Khan's action in Jawan and Pathan, who is considered to be the romance king.

Shah Rukh Khan accepted some of the films rejected by other actors with an open mind and thanks to them he became a superstar of Bollywood. Let's tell you about some such great films for which Shah Rukh was not the first choice.

is said about the film 'Darr', which brought a new turn in Shah Rukh Khan's career, that Shah Rukh Khan was not the first choice for this film.

Shah Rukh Khan in the role of a crazy lover made this film a superhit.


Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge DDLJ still hits theatres today. Through this film, Shah Rukh Khan became a Bollywood star. This film with Rahul and Simran was the best film of Shah Rukh Khan's career.
