It is Shah Rukh Khan's 56th birthday and we can't keep calm! Lovingly known as the king of romance, Shah Rukh Khan has millions of fans across the globe. Through the years, with the multiple roles he played, he won our hearts and gave us many life lessons.
Not just through his personal life, his amazing movies too he gave us life lessons which inspire us each day. We thought what better than celebrating King Khan with some big life lessons he gave us with his movies all these years. Here are some of our favourite ones -
Kal Ho Na Ho
One of his most loved movies, a Karan Johar directorial, Kal Ho Na Ho taught us to live today.
'Aaj ... aaj ek hasi aur baant lo ... aaj ek dua aur maang lo ... aaj ek ansoon aur pee lo ... aaj ek zindagi aur jee lo ... aaj ek sapna aur dekh lo ..aaj ... kya pata, kal ho naa ho.'
Indeed, who knows what the future holds for them, so one must live today to their fullest! As Aman, SRK taught us to stop taking ourselves so seriously and just selflessly love ourselves and everyone around us.
As Dr. Jehangir Khan in Dear Zindagi, Shah Rukh Khan gave us more than just 1 lesson but here we thought of sharing the most special one. One of the best lessons Jug taught us was to love ourselves.
'Jab Hum Apne Aap Ko Achi Tarah Samajh Lete Hai Toh Dusre Kya Samajhte Hai, It Doesn't Matter.'
People around are judging us all the time, trying to pull us down but when we begin to understand ourselves, nothing else matters.
Om Shanti Om
Another much loved movie starring the King Of Hearts, Om Shanti Om was a film packed with loads of drama. The reincarnation saga got immense love from the audience globally.
As Om Prakash, Shah Rukh Khan gave us one of the biggest lessons of life - If it is an unfavourable ending, it isn't the end!
'Hamari filmo ki tarah, hamari zindagi mein bhi end tak sab kuch thik hi ho jaata hai, happy ending.'
Chak De India
One of the most popular sports films in Bollywood, Chak De India celebrated patriotism, women and sports like no other. The movie was packed with powerful performances, an engaging script and dialogues which we still recall years later.
'Maine kaha tha na, team banane ke liye taakat nahi, niyat chahiye'
More than strength, one needs the right intention and as Kabir Khan's women hockey team brought back the world cup trophy home, we all understood why.
This is one love story I can watch over and over again. Squadron Leader Veer Pratap Singh and Zaara Hayaat Khan's story of unconditional love and sacrifice taught us the true meaning of relationships.
One thing I loved the most about the movie was how convincinglt it made us believe that one shouldn't give up on their loved one so easily, even if it meant waiting for them their whole life.
'Sarhad Paar Ek Aisa Shaksh Hai, Joh Aapke Liye Apni Jaan Bhi De Dega.'
Even when Zaara was leaving for Pakistan with her fiance, not knowing if they will ever meet again, Veer didn't give up on his love.
Shah Rukh Khan is an inspiration, each day, beyond Bollywood. We indeed cherish the life lessons by King Khan and wonder if we could ever live by them.
