1) SRK is the most down to earth actor we have ever come across. And trust us, we handle a lot of tantrums when we come across so many actors who don’t even share 1/10th of his popularity.
2) His first three films did a total Indian theatrical business of approximately Rs 13 crore. His last three films crossed 887 crores worldwide.
3) He is the prime example for outsiders to believe that anyone and everyone with the right talent can make it big in Bollywood.
4) We know that his team keeps a track of SRK’s Twitter mentions. They follow up and often try to help his fans who need financial or medical help.
5) The 52-year-old actor doesn’t need to romance a heroine to look like a hero. He was amazing with the 24 year-old Alia Bhatt in Dear Zindagi, playing her therapist.
6) Sports is his first love. An injury several years ago put paid to his dream of an athletic career, but now he owns a cricket team.

14) His wax statue is installed at London’s Madame Tussauds museum. The other versions of the statue are present in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, New York and Washington.
15) For every commercial movie he does, he gives us the brilliant Chak De India, Swades, Devdas etc.
