Tribute: Shahrukh Khan completes 20 years in Bollywood

I just got lucky, says SRK on 20 years in B-Town

On this day two decades ago a new Hindi film superstar emerged: Bollywood's all-time favourite romantic hero Shahrukh Khan, who debuted with "Deewana". On completing 20 years, SRK says he just "got lucky" and admits he has made mistakes all along.

"Twenty uninterrupted years of serving. Not enough talent or looks or game plan. Thank you all. I guess I got lucky, lucky to be working all the time," tweeted Shahrukh Khan, who entered filmdom with "Deewana", which released June 25, 1992.

Superstardom, disappointment and controversies - Delhi guy SRK has seen it all in his celebrityhood.

For Shah Rukh, it's been two decades in Bollywood, but his tryst with showbiz began in 1988, the year he started his journey with TV series "Fauji", after being trained at The Barry John's Acting Studio. Next year he featured in another successful show "Circus" and "Doosra Keval".

If people loved his act on small screen, he won hearts as a crazy lover in Deewana, in which he was competing with none other than Rishi Kapoor in the lead role. But lady luck was smiling on him and audiences loved his chemistry with late Divya Bharti. The song "Aisi deewangi dekhi nahin kabhi" picturised on them became a chartbuster.

"Deewana" turned out to be a huge hit at the box office, and won Shahrukh Khan a Filmfare best male debut award.

There was no looking back thereafter - only more films, more hits, and more awards for Shah Rukh. His success earned him titles like - King Khan and Bollywood Badshah.

He redefined the romantic hero in Hindi cinema with films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Mohabbatein, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Kal Ho Na Ho and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

His work profile is eclectic - he has played an obsessive lover in films like Darr and Anjaam, a villain in Baazigar, a warrior in Asoka, a modern day patriot in Swades, a superstar in Om Shanti Om, a don in "Don: The Chase Continues" and "Don 2: The King Is Back", and a superhero in his mega-production Ra.One.

At the peak of his career he choose to go back to his roots - TV - in 2007 to host the third season of game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati". He also hosted "Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain" (2008). He was last seen on small screen as the host of "Zor Ka Jhatka" in 2011.

After making it big in showbiz, he turned businessman by launching his production house Red Chillies Entertainment and later by investing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), whose victory at the fifth IPL season was a silver lining for the star this year as lately, he has been a part of controversies.

He got embroiled in a brawl with director Shirish Kunder and has been banned from entering Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium for five years over his alleged misbehaviour with security personnel and MCA officials.

But later he admitted his mistake and apologised too.

"Made mistakes, still continue to do so. A little madness. A bit of solitude. Too silly to realise it's impossible and maybe that's why it gets achieved.

"Mom said to only feel and say positive things. 'Your Farishtey (angels) are always listening and fulfil your words.' My Farishtey work overtime," wrote the 45-year-old.

Now, one of the most lovable Bollywood actor is set to return to his lovey-dovey avatar with Yash Chopra's next directorial venture. He will be seen romancing Katrina Kaif in it.
