Shah Rukh Khan is in a phase where he has to do something drastically different to retain his position in the top 5 stars. This is exactly what Salman Khan faced back in 2009 and he made a comeback with Wanted; since then there’s no looking back for him.

The filmography of Shah Rukh Khan was perfect till Om Shanti Om, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and My Name Is Khan because along with his superstar image he was juggling with a good mixture of films. Then came in his dream project Ra.One, for which he also apparently turned down Shankar’s Robot. Yes, Ra.One was a plus affair at the box office but it really didn’t fulfilled the desired expectations.

Ra.One was one expensive experiment which paid off monetarily but the audience didn’t welcome it wholeheartedly. It started the birth of some cracks in the dynasty of the sole King of Bollywood. With Don 2, Shah Rukh Khan was still in his zone making that film a success too.

It was Jab Tak Hai Jaan that really provoked a thought of, “Was this a right film for Shah Rukh Khan?” It was Yash Chopra’s last movie and trailer/promos were receives very well along with a good music. It clashed with Son Of Sardar and both the movies did well at the box office.

Then came Chennai Express proving to be a game changer for Shah Rukh Khan. Entering the 200 Crore club back in 2013, Shah Rukh Khan retained whatever seemed to be slipping from his hands. Everyone expected another potboiler masala from him and he shook hands with Farah Khan, with whom he was having a bittersweet relationship back then.

Coming back together after 7 years, Shah & Farah Khan’s Happy New Year had every ingredient to work at the box office and it did work being a plus affair. But as Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Ra.One, it was received to berukhi mixed response amongst the audience.

Then came Dilwale, Fan, Jab Harry Met Sejal and now Zero – Shah Rukh Khan needs something like Chennai Express to maintain his position at the box office. He, apparently, has walked out of the space film Saare Jahan Se Accha after the debacle of Zero. It seems he wants to stay away from the experimental roles and follow the tested box office formula. Reports also state he’ll do Don 3 before anything else and this also hints at the same. Only time will tell what’s the next move and next movie of Shah Rukh Khan.

  4. LOL!!! He is not doing any experiments. He is afraid of experiment that’s why he still does same kind of love story but in different settings. He relies heavily on his VFX company to make film success, when he has a need of good script. He should have done this space film. I bet at least it has a good script since it’s a biopic. This movie could make him come back on track, but of course now he wants to only work with a big directos like he used to before a decade. I hope Don3 doesn’t turn out to be another big ZERO. If Don3 also fails to make fans happy, then SRK needs to retire and give his kids chance in Bollywood.

    BTW, anyone who still calls him King of Bollywood haven’t watch films for 10 years. His thrown was taken by Salman, and other actors. Now he is a beggar of Bollywood, trying to taste a success for almost a decade. Even Akshay did not have this long unsuccessful years in 90s. SRK sure needs to learn from Akshay and new comers. Akshay is still able to give good masterpieces after releasing atleast 3 films per year. Look at Ayushman Khuranna, Rajkumar Rai, and several others and learn from them. It’s not 90s anymore. Playing same old lover boy at the age of 53 is not acceptable. It’s not called an experiment, it’s called afraid of change. Grow up SRK, try different genres. Pass lover boy roles to your son, and try to live in 2019. Everyone knows you will not get your kingdom back, but atleast you can live happily.

  5. He doesn’t need something like Chennai Express. It was successful at box office, but ITV was a crappy movie. It was super hit at box office doesn’t mean it was a good film. He needs something like this space film to make his path better. His last success film was Don2, so he is trying to see if that works at the box office. But I highly doubt it will work. With the way he is choosing the script in the last 8-9 years, fans are afraid to go watch first day- first show. Everyone want some to wait for review and go watch. Without bumper opening day, he can’t do anything at the box office no matter if it has good story. He needs to lower the budget like Akshay Kumar so even if box office is very low, it will be super hit and everyone who invested money will be happy.
