It takes a lot of toil to be helmed as the Baadshah of Bollywood, and Shah Rukh Khan’s struggle from a middleclass back ground to the pinnacle is no secret. The actor who started his romance with the big screen in 1992 with Deewana, had explored several mediums before he forayed into Bollywood. Apart from being a part of soaps and ad campaigns, SRK had also featured in some short films to hone his acting skills.
The magic box that the internet is, a short film starring Shah Rukh Khan has surfaced, and though SRK was in his initial days of his career, his impeccable screen presence is quite evident. The film called Mahan Karz, or Great Debt is a retroscape where SRK stars as a treasurer’s son, who nourishes a dream of working in the castle, winning over the king with his sweet talk.
The actor looks quite dapper in his traditional garb, and clearly his charming demeanour was a draw right from his initial days before the camera. Undoubtedly, it’s Shah Rukh’s intense expressions that make this short film a must watch.
No wonder SRK is the undisputed Baadshah of Bollywood.
