e haven’t wat-ched millions of movies starring Shah Rukh Khan for nothing. At least that’s what we tell ourselves while we sing ‘Chhan Se’ softly every day into the mirror.
And guys, look, we know King Khan (that’s what he was called back in the day. The last true superstar if you ask us), is maybe not your generation’s top idol. Maybe yours is Rajesh Khanna (look him up), maybe it’s Ranbir Kapoor, maybe its Kartik Aaryan (he’s still a thing, right?) . But it was SRK who drew the road map to super stardom. And while his signature laugh might make you shiver with fear for the ominous things it indicates, there are times we could all learn a thing or two from Rahul.
Be Om from Om Shanti Om
Om Prakash Makhija was a loyal friend, even when his crush snubs him. He believes in his dreams strongly even though his career as an actor is going nowhere. Do better people. When was the last time you deliberately reincarnated to get the girl and the job?
Be Raj from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
Ladies and gentlemen, it never is a bad idea to woo your intended’s family while you woo them.
Be G.One from Ra.One
To this day we have no idea what the movie’s about, but if an awkward robot can bust a move on the dance floor, so can you.
Don’t be the older dude with a bun
We are so delighted Pathaan is doing well, but we’ve noticed a disturbing trend among South Asian men of a certain age. It’s like they cross 45 and think, oh I must grow out my hair and put it in a messy bun, so I can express my fun edginess, because I’m not like other men. Stop doing this, please.
Don’t be Raj from
Don’t borderline harass women who are clearly not into you, to the point they start questioning if they actually are. Additionally don’t chase some girl – whom you barely know - and her folks across the world to woo them. It’s really creepy.
