[[caption-width-right:300:I'm the king of Bollywood! I can do whatever I want! (But I won't do that)]]

Also called [[FanNickname SRK]] or [[FanNickname King Khan]] by those in the know. Chances are, if you've heard of Bollywood, you've heard of SRK. Maybe in a newspaper article calling him {{Bollywood}}'s TomCruise or Creator/HarrisonFord, as in the page quote, but none of those descriptions can capture the mystique, the appeal, the popularity of the man himself.

Famous for playing endearing [[ManChild manchildren]] who mature due to the [[LoveRedeems the love of a good woman]], but he does get some range in now and again by playing the StalkerWithACrush (''Darr'', ''Anjaam'', ''Bollywood/DilSe''), Buddhist Emperors (''Asoka''), SuperCoach to the Indian women's hockey team (''Chak De India''), and the eponymous ''[[DonTheChaseBeginsAgain Don]]''.

[[ThoseTwoActors Forms a very popular onscreen jodi]] with Creator/{{Kajol}} and Creator/MadhuriDixit.

----
!!His work provides examples of the following tropes:

* AlmostKiss: Enforced as he refuses to kiss his costars (reportedly) out of respect for his wife.
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: You cannot have a Shah Rukh Khan movie without one of these.
* TheCharmer: Used most famously in ''Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge'' where he charms not only his love interest, but also her entire extended family including his girlfriend's future-in-laws of her arranged marriage that was being forced on her by her father and gets her father in the end to accept him as his son-in-law.
* {{Fanservice}}. All the time. More specifically SexySoakedShirt.
* PsychopathicManchild: Before he became famous as a chocolate hero, he was known for his villainous roles which were almost always in this mold.
* StalkerWithACrush: He plays this in almost all his early movies. Either women he falls in love with return his love and he becomes endearing or in a darker movie, he becomes a psychopath.
* VerbalTic: He's famous for his stutter. He also has a famous line reading from the movie ''Darr'' where his character stutters out the name of the heroine whom he is stalking. "K-k-k-k-kiran!"
* StrokeTheBeard: He regularly strokes the hair on his head in each and every movie.
