51-year-old ”King of Bollywood” Shah Rukh Khan felt that he wasn’t good looking hero to play a lover boy role. Shah Rukh Khan has delivered multiple blockbusters under the Yash Raj Film banner, including Dil Toh Pagal Hai (1997), Veer Zaara (2004) and, more recently, Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). He can proudly say that Yash Chopra has single-handedly created his career.
Despite competing with the likes of Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan, who were evidently celebrated for their good looks, SRK battled all odds to become one of the most revered romance heroes of the era. He rememberd Yash Raj telling him that until I play a lover boy, my career wouldn’t take off. Shahrukh Khan was honored with the 4th Yash Chopra Memorial Award in Mumbai recently. SRK revealed that he never believed that he could do romantic films, but Yash ji made him do such films.
