Shah Rukh Khan turns 50, humbled by love from fans
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 03 - 11 - 2015

It was a scene right out of "Om Shanti Om" — with a gleam in his eyes, Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan stood in a balcony of his house Mannat in Mumbai, blew kisses to his fans, waved and smiled at them. On his 50th birthday on Monday, the Bollywood superstar was "humbled" by the love that his fans showered on him.
Cameras went clicking pictures and lights flashed as seen in a video that the actor posted on his Facebook page. There was a loud cheer and whistles from the crowd that filled the street outside his house in Bandra, The Hindu reported.
Even before the clock struck 12, fans had begun gathering outside, and the attention made the star be grateful for the love that his audiences have showered on him since over two decades of his Bollywood career.
"Right now so humbled by the attention and love being given to my birthday. Didn't ever realize living will be so beautiful. Thanks all," Shah Rukh shared on social media platforms.
At night, he even cut a cake with his family members — wife Gauri, sons Aryan and AbRam and daughter Suhana. "Happy birthday Shah Rukh... it's just us tonight," Gauri posted with a photograph on Facebook. The actor is seen cutting a cake with white frosting.
On his special day, SRK reached out to his fans to treat them with a glimpse into his upcoming movie "Fan", a Yash Raj Films (YRF) production.
"Today as I turn 50, I turn 25 again — for all the years of love you have given me, I give you my most heartfelt creation. Gaurav the FAN. You and I are a belief," he posted. The film, directed by Maneesh Sharma, stars SRK as a fan.
Its first 63-second teaser was launched earlier this year, but on his birthday, SRK released the second teaser — a much-longer version — for his fans.
A host of his celebrity friends, including names like Karan Johar, Hrithik Roshan, Anupam Kher and Preity Zinta, took to Twitter to wish SRK. Some shared how the actor's journey from the small screen to the big screen has been inspirational; while others said his charm and warmth makes them consider him like family.
SRK, who has featured in a melange of action, romantic, dramatic and comedy roles through his career, is one of the most successful actors in Hindi cinema. His fan following is global, and his charm, unmatched.
With films like "Baazigar", "Badshah", "Duplicate", "Karan Arjun", "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge", "Dil To Pagal Hai", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Dil Se..", "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham", "Swades", "Kal Ho Naa Ho" and "My Name Is Khan" — he has won his fans over and over again.
The saga will continue with "Dilwale" and "Fan". So, as he says in "Om Shanti Om", "picture abhi baaki hai...". — Agencies
