Better be nice to Farouk, he was named one of the 50 most powerful people in the world a few years back!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shahrukh_Khan
I think it's fair to say that SRK started just as the latest Bollywood pretty boy- miming and dancing along and being the romantic lead, all that- and from that he grew into a phenomenon and from that, into a genuine proper actor.
His performance as a guy with Asperger's Syndrome in 2010's 'My Name Is Khan' (which was a very Westernised movie, and a big hit over here) had me in tears.
I've also seen some of the more usual romantic movies with Jockladeshi, and some are fairly standard fare, and some are very good indeed.
Though if he could just make a movie that's less than three and a half hours long, that'd do for me...
