I'll admit it. I'm a little obsessed with the famous Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan. And I discovered his films about a decade ago by checking them out from Skokie Public Library! These are some of my favorite SRK (Shah Rukh Khan) movies, from when he was the #1 heartthrob in Indian cinema.
One of my favorite movies of all time, this story is all about family--what breaks it apart and what keeps it together. As a bonus, this movie includes almost all of my favorite actors from Indian cinema: Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bhaduri, Kajol, and Hrithik Roshan.
It's Kajol and Raj (SRK)! (I'm almost as obsessed with Kajol as I am with SRK.) Boy meets girl. Girl can't stand boy. Boy and girl get separated from their group while on a trip through Europe and fireworks ensue...eventually.
Raj (SRK) has already loved and lost. And now he is a peace-and-love-promoting professor to three lovestruck young men. Will their stories end happily? Will Raj break the iron will of the university's headmaster (Amitabh Bachchan again!)?
This film has some of the best music and most visually gorgeous dance numbers I've ever seen. This movie leaves Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge in the dust. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays SRK's gorgeous love interest in a tragic romance.
