On Shah Rukh Khan's 50th birthday, I think it's time we are honest. Shah Rukh is not the most good looking guy in the industry. A few other names come to mind. Here's looking at you, Hrithik. But there's something about him. Kuch toh baat hai. Let's peg it down to charm and an innate sense of style.
Shah Rukh has a knack for making even the most insane on-screen costumes look adorable while taking the seriously great ones to the next level.
In Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, the most romantic film of all time (there is no other, get it?
GET IT?), Shah Rukh rocked a lovely leather jacket. The jacket is said to have been bought by
Uday Chopra from a Harley-Davidson store. He does have good taste. Who knew?
Remember Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the film that told us ek ladka aur ladki kabhi dost nahi ho
sakte hain? Even if it was the 90s, you knew that Rahul's 'Cool' chain and Polo T-shirt were cheesy and yet Shah Rukh made them a rage.
Way before hipsters could take over, Shah Rukh made earrings cool in Josh.
In Mohabbatein, Shah Rukh's Raj Aryan showed us the right way to wear sweaters - casually draped over both shoulders.
There's something to be said about a guy who wanders the streets drunk without his dhoti unravelling. And that's exactly what Shah Rukh did in Devdas.
Okay so in Main Hoon Na, he showed us the OTHER way to wear a sweater - over your shirt.
Velvet! Shah Rukh made velvet look dangerously sexy in Don. Is there anything he can't do!?
Shah Rukh looked his best ever in Chak De! India. He looked irresistible in a freakin' tracksuit. And that stubble. I... I'm...ehjayt... I can't even think straight.
In Om Shanti Om, SRK showed us what six-pack abs should really look like.
Sneakers, trousers, moustache and glasses - Shah Rukh made nerd look good in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
Shah Rukh got rid of his floppy locks for My Name Is Khan. The shorter crop made him look
more vulnerable, more endearing.
For Happy New Year, he grew his hair, put it in a ponytail and added a blonde streak. It was a subtle change, but one that did not go unnoticed. And we saw the return of the Glorious Beard.
We'll soon see Shah Rukh in Raees and from the trailer you know he's going to be badass. The pathani, the surma-laden eyes and the bad boy attitude - can it be Eid 2016 already?
