BadSHAH Of Bollywood!

I have never been a Shahrukh Khan fan from my childhood.in fact it quite surprised me why people went ga ga go go over him.i found nothing worth admiring in him.but that didn't stop me from appreciating his movies-Dil toh pagal hai,Kuch kuch hota hai,Kal ho na ho,Swades and more recently Chak de!i really enjoyed all the movies but somewhere i feel that shahrukh is very stereotypical.earlier i felt he did romantic movies because he knew he was great at it and wouldn't be much of an action hero or pull the macho stuff well.but it was evident,where other heroes were experimenting with all kinds of roles,shahrukh stuck to what he did best!and for that i appreciated him.he never followed the trend but was a trend in himself.there were times he romanced ladies on screen half his age but he pulled that off with great aplomb!a thing that only he could do.

Of late i notice him trying out things that has already been tested and is a sure shot success.Amitabh Bacchan made Kaun Banega Crorepati became a household name,due to a feud with him,mr khan decided to take up the offer of hosting the show.moreover he starred in the re-make of DON, a film originally done by Mr Bacchan.then comes Main Hoon Na, a film by friend Farah Khan,with all essentials spices of bollywood,patriotism,romance, and action:a tested formula and a sure shot hit!Chak de, a sports flick was a hit too but what is noticeable is that previously Amir Khan's Lagaan was based on a similar theme was a hit and marked as the first bollywood flick to be nominated in the Oscars.With his next release-Om Shanti Om,he is seen romancing Deepika Padukore ,daughter of ace badminton champ prakash padukore.what is visible despite his perfectionist expressions and impeccable acting in the trailers is his age lines.

A man of 45 romancing a lady in her early 20's works great only when it is presented is a proper way.but one has to keep in mind there are things even make up cant hide!in this movie we see him bare it all, to show his newly acquired 6 pack abs,but to tell the truth he is no match to the likes of the macho image of John Abraham or Hrithik Roshan,there are certain things that doesn't suit all and sundry,just to be on the top one should not follow trends blindly but personalize it.Shakrukh is still the badshah of the industry he need not take drastic steps or follow trodden paths to maintain his position in the summit but he should pave his own way!he should stick to being an actor of substance than join the bandwagon!
