June 26 marks a special day for the die-hard SRK lovers (including me) as the majestic superstar completes 26 years in the film industry.
His debut film Deewana was released on June 26, 1992 and was a commercial success. The film featured him alongside established superstar of that era, Rishi Kapoor. Divya Bharti played the female lead in the film and the film was directed by veteran filmmaker Raj Kanwar.
It is to be noted that SRK initially signed Hema Malini’s Dil Aashna Hai but it did not become his debut film because Deewana released earlier.
SRK was really amused at his journey and expressed his emotions in a heartfelt tweet that read,
“Tomorrow will be exactly half a lifetime of being ‘others’. Expressing love,happiness, sadness,dancing,falling & flying. Hope I hav touched small bits of ur hearts & hope I can do so for the whole lifetime... ’रोशनी मेरी बहुत दूर तक जायेगी, पर शर्त यह है, की सलीखे से जलाओ मुझको”
Interestingly, the role in Deewana was initially offered to Armaan Kohli but he backed out and we got the charismatic SHAH RUKH KHAN.
If we discuss SRK’s future projects then he is all set for his mega release ZERO this Christmas.
