What’s common between Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and the hero of yesterday’s India-Australia World Cup quarter final, Suresh Raina? Of course, their Zodiac sign, Scorpio. All three, plus a host of other Bollywood and cricket stars, belong to this zodiac sign that is considered the most deadly of all. Lets us find out how.

Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan’s is a typical rags-to-riches story. Not to say that he came from an impoverished background before he became Bollywood’s biggest super star, but he did come from a humble home in Delhi. But as is common with Scorpios, SRK never rested till he achieved what he wanted. He made few friends and stayed loyal to them; he saw the world in a black and white and set out to conquer it. The fearless, determined and hardworking SRK finally made it to the top of Bollywood and has stayed there with grace and wit for many years now. He is open with his friends and the media and greets even the spot boy on his sets very warmly, but very few know the real SRK. Like he is the King Khan, he is also the King of Scorpios. The world’s waiting now for his Ra.One.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
She came from a conservative middle class family and went on to become the leading actress for almost a decade, winning acclaim in India and abroad. Renowned for her green eyes and beautiful demeanour, the Scorpio in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan makes her powerful and passionate. Being the quintessential Scorpio, Ash also loves competition, whether at work or play, although she might not say it in so many words. And hasn’t she beaten all competition by being the heroine of the highest grossing film India has ever seen – Endhiran (Robot).

More on Scorpios: Reputed to be the “most powerful” sign of the zodiac, Scorpios lead fate filled lives and have intense and dramatic personal relationships. Passion, desire and power go hand in hand for Scorpios. They are different from all other zodiac signs and this difference has them walking, working and loving to a different beat. They are wise beyond their years and act as leaders and are an inspiration to others.

Suresh Raina
He’s a quiet, obedient boy from the innards of India, who rose up the ranks to become one of the most competent cricketers we have today in the Indian team. Just like the typical Scorpio, Raina looks up to his elders, like when he remarked after the Indian win over Australia in the World Cup quarter finals, “One hi-five from Sachin (Tendulkar) made all the difference.” His greatest strengths are his determination, passion and motivation and, of course, the burning desire to take the cup back home.

Brett Lee
He has been around for ages and has inspired hundreds of fast bowlers around the world. And being the Scorpio that he is, Brett Lee knows how to take defeat on the chin, but, at the same time, never give up. So, even after he hurt his eye in the quarter final match against India, he got bandaged and back to the ground in no time, ready to give the Indian batsmen a difficult time. Like all Scorpios, Brett Lee doesn’t have the word ‘quit’ in his dictionary and more often than not, he gets the work done.
