A brand that gives an identity to a Nation - Shah Rukh Khan!
Love him or hate him. Become a FAN or Dispise him. You can never ignore him. Without doing a film for about an year, he is still one of the most talked about stars in Indian Cinema and even after many flops, he is still the most influential man in the world from India.
Love him or hate him. Become a FAN or Dispise him. You can never ignore him. Without doing a film for about a year, he is still one of the most talked-about stars in Indian Cinema and even after many flops, he is still the most influential man in the world from India.
In several countries, people recognize India as a country of Shah Rukh Khan and even the local population, not Indians who settled there, adore him for his acting and charisma on screen. What did he really do to become such a brand? How come three letters be such popular and influential?
Some might argue Dileep Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand, Rajnikanth, Kamal Hassan, NTR, ANR, Krishna, Chiranjeevi, Mohan Lal, Mammotty are pinnacles when it comes to actors becoming stars and ruling Industry while also influencing it big time and SRK, Salman Khan are not as big a deal because media is hyping it up.
If media can really hype up a person, Akshay Kumar with his constant and consistent "Desh Bhakth" patriotic films could have been the biggest star that Indian Cinema has ever seen with box office also on his side. But he remains an actor who is highly popular, who makes more films and therefore a person more in the news. But in case, tomorrow he faces a tough phase like SRK or Salman at box office, will there be an uproar from fans asking him to announce a film? Will there be people waiting outside his bungalow or house, asking to come out just once to see his glimpse? Will there be people walking from Delhi or various parts of the country to his residence in Mumbai not because they can't afford a train ticket but because they want to show their passionate love towards him?
This is not to degrade Akshay Kumar or his efforts to keep the business running but these lines are purely to answer those fans and people in film business that constantly undermine star power and connect of SRK with public due to his current flops
