    The publication highlighted Khan’s notable characters from four movies – Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas, Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Swades, and Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. His dialogue from the 2021 film Jab Tak Hai Jaan – “Zindagi toh har roz jaan leti hai…Bomb toh sirf ek baar lega (Every day life kills us a little. A bomb will kill you only once)”, has been deemed as the “iconic line” of his entire career.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan was filmmaker Yash Chopra’s last movie before his death. It featured Khan as an Indian Army Major named Samar Anand. The film also starred Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in pivotal roles. 

    On the work front, the actor will next be seen in the action thriller Pathaan, which is to be released globally on January 25, 2023. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film also stars John Abraham and Deepika Padukone. Khan will also appear in two more films, Atlee’s grand-entertainer Jawan and Rajkumar Hirani-directed Dunki. Jawan is a pan-India project, all set to come out on June 2, 2023, and he stars in Dunki alongside Taapsee Pannu, which will release in December of next year.
