Initially starting his career in television with shows like “Fauji” and “Circus,” Shah Rukh Khan made his film debut in 1992 with “Deewana,” instantly winning hearts with his charming persona. His ability to portray diverse characters with depth and authenticity has set him apart, earning him critical acclaim and a massive fan following.
Khan’s success is not confined to the Indian film industry; his global appeal has turned him into a cultural icon. His films, including blockbusters like “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge,” “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai,” and “My Name is Khan,” have not only dominated the box office but also garnered international recognition. He made a strong comeback in 2023 with three hit films – Pathan, Jawan, Dunki.
Beyond acting, Shah Rukh Khan is a shrewd entrepreneur, with investments in various businesses, including film production and the Kolkata Knight Riders, a team in the Indian Premier League. He has received numerous awards for his contributions to cinema, including the prestigious Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan from the Indian government.
Shah Rukh Khan’s class and success extend beyond the silver screen, making him a global symbol of inspiration and resilience. His philanthropic endeavors, wit, and humility further cement his place as a beloved figure in the hearts of millions worldwide.
In this latest speech, Shah Rukh Khan reflects on his approach to acting and the roles he portrays on screen. He starts by defining himself as someone who is inherently optimistic and inclined towards narrating uplifting narratives.

The roles he chooses are centered around protagonists who bring hope and happiness to the audience.

Khan goes on to delineate the moral dichotomy in his character portrayals. When playing a positive character, he ensures that the character engages in virtuous deeds that inspire and uplift the audience. On the contrary, if the role is that of an antagonist or a “bad guy,” Khan is committed to making sure that the character faces the consequences of their actions. He uses the phrase “suffers and dies a dog’s death” to vividly illustrate the severity of the punishment his negative characters endure.
In his speech, Shah Rukh Khan said, ”I am a guy who is hopeful and tells happy stories. The heroes I play do good things, they give hope & happiness. If I play a bad guy, I make sure he suffers and dies a dog’s death. Because Goodness begets goodness and badness deserves a kick in the back side.”
