22 Unknown And Secret Facts About King Of Bollywood : SRK

Shah Rukh Khan’s debut flick, Deewana, hit the ­theatres 22 years ago. In fact, June 25 was the date when the film had released. A ­nostalgic SRK tweeted, saying, “All notions, creations and experiences of decades will end on the day of truth. I ­tirelessly work to ignore the inevitable. Thx for 22 yrs of O2 {sic}.”
The 48-year-old ­also ­confessed that he never ­really watched his debut film. "I have, till date, not seen Deewana. I have a notion that I don’t want to see my first or last creation. They are ­bookends, the story is between {sic}," he posted.
We take a look at more such spellbinding facts about the Padma Shri awardee, who has been ruling the roost for two decades.

Debut dilemma: His debut film was Dil Aashna Hai, but due to the delay in the release of the film, Deewana is considered to be his debut film.

9 Home, sweet home: One of the reasons why Shah Rukh bought Mannat — his palatial ­bungalow in Juhu, Mumbai, was that he wanted to have an ­exclusive prayer room. He’s been quoted as saying that if he was broke, he would sell everything but Mannat.
10 Southern sojourn: While we all know about Shah Rukh’s love for Delhi, not many known that he spent his childhood in Bangalore, where his grandfather worked as a chief engineer.
11 Love from alma mater: When his college, Hans Raj, ­celebrated its golden jubilee {1998}, the college gave away 17 shields to its alumni who had excelled in their lives, and Shah Rukh was one of them.
12 Anything for Adi: He agreed to act in Aditya Chopra’s debut film, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaenge {1995}, ­without even looking at the script.
13 Monumental earning: His first salary was `50 which he earned by working as an usherer at a Pankaj Udhas concert in Delhi in the early 80s. He used the money to take the train to Agra and see the Taj Mahal. 
14 Pyjama prem: He makes sure his sleeping ­pyjamas are ­freshly-ironed every night because he believes that "one never knows who one may meet in dreams."
15 Pet stars: His favourite actor is Dilip Kumar, and his favourite actresses are Mumtaz and Saira Banu.
16 Filmy bribes: In school, his Hindi was very poor. His mother promised to take him for a movie if he passed his Hindi exams. Teenager SRK loved ­watching movies, and began to score top marks in Hindi then onwards.
17 Old habits die hard: SRK has a phobia of riding horses, and never eats ice-creams.

18 Jodi kamaal ki: Actor Juhi Chawla is not only a partner of his production house, but also a co-star with whom he has acted in the maximum number of films. They’ve appeared in 11 films, including Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman {1992}, Darr {1993}, Yes Boss {1997}, Duplicate {1998}, Bhoothnath {2008} etc.
19 Lucky charm: The number plates of all his cars read 555. Shah Rukh is superstitious about numbers and believes that the right numbers bring him good luck.
20 Dhaba time: During his struggling days before he entered showbiz, Shah Rukh ran a ­restaurant in Dariya Ganj.
21 Movies calling: The prime reason why Khan took up Mass Communications {film making} in Jamia Milia University, Delhi, is because he loved watching television commercials.
22 Being salesman: The actor sold tickets at the booking window of a Mumbai theatre on the opening day of his 1994 film, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, directed by Kundan Shah. He was paid Rs 25,000 for that film.
