What makes Shah Rukh Khan such a huge Bollywood star?
In the burgeoning Bollywood film industry, there are stars that are just as handsome as Khan. There are other actors who are taller and more muscular than he is. There are also a few who are just as charismatic and give riveting performances on the screen Yet, save for Bollywood cinema legend Amitabh Bachchan, few can match Khan, in terms of popularity.
I found out first hand what sets Khan apart from other Bollywood stars when he made a surprise appearance last Friday at a press briefing, hours before the Zee Cine Awards 2011 at Marina Bay Sands in which he was slated to perform.
The reason for his popularity is clear, he is simply a genuinely likable guy and a natural born joker.
He has a following that rivals the most popular sports star, movie star, rock star and pop star in this country combined! It is like revisiting the introduction of the Beatles to the United States back in the 1960’s if you can imagine that!
