Who is the biggest film star in the world?

If you ask Google – Who is the biggest movie star in the world? Click comes the reply – “The numbers prove that Shah Rukh Khan is the biggest movie star in the world.” Whoa a desi!

We all know his life story – a nobody with a dream, comes to Mumbai to become an actor and eventually becomes the king of the Indian film industry. He did not stop at that – He is the biggest star in the world now!


The fact that he is a self made, hard working family man totally endears him to his fans. I have grown up binge watching his movies, applauding his scenes, defending him and knowing that – Shah Rukh Can! He is romance incarnate in Indian Movies.

From ‘Army’ and ‘Circus’ days when my mom used to exclaim – ‘Ye ladka hero banega'(This boy will be a film star  someday) to ‘Hello Zindagi’, he has come a long way.

Here are my coolest top 10 SRK movies.

  1. Chak de


2. Swades


3. Kabhi haan kabhi na


4. DDLJ


5. Rab ne bana di jodi


6. Chennai Express


7. Kal ho na ho


8. Raju ban gaya gentleman


9. Veer zara


10. Fan 


(Yeah, I liked Fan, despite all the criticism. I am yet to watch his newly released, Dear Zindagi, hence it is not in the list)

Recently, Netflix signed a deal with him in order to capture the coveted film market in India and stay one step ahead of rival Amazon. The charismatic Khan is not much known in the western world but the deal is sure to give him a wider exposure.

But meanwhile, we SRK fans are happy in the knowledge that he is the biggest movie star in the whole wide world with high grossing films, enviable film offers and a huge Twitter following. 

BTW, What is your favourite SRK film?

    1. I didn’t like the ending of ‘Fan’, it was too melodramatic but I liked how he carried the double role. I love Chak de and Swades they are right at the top in the list… So glad you came over๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    I loved Swades. Another movie which I really liked was Dil Se. I would probably place it above Fan.

    I am a huge fan of Shahrukh Khan, but have been disappointed by his recent movies including Happy New Year and Dilwale. I really feel he is at that stage of his career where he can go ahead and indulge in more meaningful cinema. Even if we go through your list, apart from Fan, none of his recent movies finds a place there. That says a lot.

    1. Nice analysis Animesh…have been disappointed too with Dilwale and Happy New Year… mindless films. I hope too that we get to see some good cinema, he really can carry off serious roles too. He should go for critical acclaim now!

    1. Yes, these films were hugely successful but personally I do not like them as much as the others. Devdas had more of Bhansali magic, Darr was a little too dramatic and Baazigar was a copy of an English movie. Nevertheless, I love these too but not as much as the top 10 ones. BTW did you watch Hello Zindagi? How is it? And thank you for coming over๐Ÿ˜€
