​1. As Raj In DDLJ

​A romantic drama set in the '90s is a record-breaking film for the Bollywood fraternity. Raj and Simran’s love story can give Romeo and Juliet a run for its money. Its legendary soundtrack, outfits, and movie props may be cliché in 2022, but SRK makes it worth our while.

​2. As Kabir In Chak De! India

​Grossing over Rs 100 crore when there wasn’t even a 100-crore club, SRK's acting in 'Chak De' shows us a side of unwavering grit and determination of the Indian Women’s hockey team coach.

​3. As Mohan Bhargav In Swades

​ A tear-jerker, 'Swades' will evoke a multitude of emotions as you watch Mohan Bhargav, a NASA scientist, travels back to India to discover his roots and love of the country that he once left behind.

​4. As Rahul In Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

​You can frown, and joke, but you can’t hate 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. A light-hearted romantic comedy set on the ground of friendship, Rahul, Tina, and Anjali are evergreen characters that every '90s kid has grown up watching.

​5. As Dr Jehangir In Dear Zindagi

​His role in 'Dear Zindagi', as the psychologist Dr Jehangir Khan, is a rare and real representation of mental health issues in today’s trying times.

​6. As Rizwan In My Name Is Khan

​Playing the role of a Muslim man with Asperger’s syndrome in America, SRK’s character Rizwan will leave you heartbroken when life hurls racial prejudices on a goofy lover after the 9/11 attack. Khan’s journey to meet the President of the USA to tell him, “My name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist” will leave you teary-eyed as you voyage along with the character.

​7. As Devdas In Devdas

​Doing a remake of an iconic film? Leave it to SRK to ace the role. 'Devdas', one of the best movies to watch on the star’s birthday, will take you on a journey of an OG pained lover turned alcoholic who ultimately dies at the gates of his childhood love’s husband’s home.

​8. As Amarkanth In Dil Se...

​A romantic thriller where SRK plays the role of an obsessive journalist who meets Meghna, Manisha Koirala. Packed with thrilling secrets and a love story for the books, 'Dil Se' is nothing you will expect from Shahrukh’s flowery rom-com.

​9. As Major Ram Prasad In Main Hoon Na

​'Main Hoon Na' saw the actor as Major Ram, who attends college as a student on an undercover mission to protect the general’s daughter from an estranged ex-marshal. An action-packed, emotionally stirring, and romantic drama, this film is one of the best SRK-movies for a weekend.

​10. As Rahul In K3G

​'K3G' was Karan Johar’s brainchild, but we watched it multiple times for SRK. A multi-starrer family drama that weighs on the grounds of wealth and class, Shah Rukh’s character's love for a simple middle-class girl versus Amitabh Bachchan’s set rules was emotionally delightful.
