Shah Rukh Khan 's story

With dreams in his eyes, Shah Rukh came to Mumbai 'to own this city'. Today he confesses that it's the city that owns him. But he seems to have no regrets. With over 50 movies to his credits Shah Rukh Khan may well be the most envied star today. But like many actors, he too started small. Shah Rukh's first film was Dil Aashna Hai but it was Raj Kunwar's Deewana that released first. Incidentally, both the films had the late Divya Bharati opposite him.Divya was then a very big star. But Deewana turned the tables and made Shah Rukh a star overnight. It also fetched him the Filmfare Award for best debut. However after this hit, Shah Rukh took some bad career decisions that resulted in a string of flops.With Baazigar and Darr, he was back in the running. The two films also started the trend of a hero doing negative roles. Then a lean period followed after which came the two big hits – Karan Arjun and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.The fluctuating career graph headed northwards after Koyla. Indeed there have been those drawbacks in his career even after Koyla, like Asoka, One 2 Ka 4, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, etc. But he almost always managed to give one huge hit every year and maintain his standing.1992-2008:
