15 Reasons Why Shahrukh Khan Is Undoubtedly “The King Of Romance”

I have been the BIGGEST fan of Shahrukh ever since I first started watching movies. For years, he has been my hope that I too will find someone who will love me the way he does in his movies. (I know it is all fictional for now, but I choose to believe that such a world exists).


I have been blessed to meet this man thrice (nothing that he would remember, of course) but I cherish those moments and think of them as the happiest moments of my life! Shahrukh has inspired millions of people to dream, not just in India, but worldwide. Here, I have shortlisted just a few of his most romantic movies, the characters played by him, and the many reasons why we love him SO much!
