Shahrukh Khan has been a special person in my eyes ever since I first saw him. People listen to his stammer-dialog delivery. I can sense a passion and an energy missing from Indian life! While Amitabh Bachchan epitomized the quiet subdued power of anger, Shahrukh goes a notch higher and makes that anger a rage. A passion that goes beyond words.
I have always mantained that Shahrukh would have succeeded no matter what he did. When he was studying – he did so very well. When he played he captained. Whatever he does, it has his 120% concentration and focus. He works to win. Nothing short. That is why a guy with good but not the most dashing looks, ordinary body (hold on!), and a TV career – made it as a super-star in Bollywood. Unthinkable combo and act.
Now, Shahrukh at his 40+ age thought of doing something with his body. And what does he do? He creates something out of his bland and flat body.. a physique that only a few can match in the Indian cinema!! Here is a pic (from Sakshi’s blog) of his six packs for his movie – Om Shanti Om (a retro kind of take on the world of bollywood itself!)
