There are a lot of qualities Shah Rukh Khan shares with both his predecessors and his contemporaries While there are those who claim hes nothing more than a clever amalgamation of Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan there are others who swear hes made a fine art of hamming Darrs KKKKiran being the classic example and is yet to graduate beyond six set expressions However theres one characteristic to Shah Rukhs personality that no one can even hope to match his boundless energy You could be his worst critic but whether hes guiding you through a mindless comedy like Duplicate or an intense romance like Dil Se his own passion is infectious Its something you cannot shrug off easily and it is perhaps the essence of his charisma The other attribute that sets him apart is his mind-boggling self-confidence How else can you explain a small-time television actor from Delhi getting quick breaks like Deewana 1992 and Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa 1993 both won him high praise and then putting his newfound career on he line with a trilogy of negative characters Baazigar 1992 Darr 1993 and Anjaam 1994 were risks no established star would have taken in fact he got Darr only after Aamir Khan turned it down But then Shah Rukh has made no bones about the fact that he believes hes the best It is this belief and a sensible decision to seek out respected names like Yash Chopra Darr Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Dil To Pagal Hai Subhash Ghai Trimurti and Pardes and Mani Ratnam Dil Se that has put him ahead of the competition Theres no disputing the fact that Shah Rukh Khan is the most saleable Bollywood star both in India and overseas No wonder then that he decided to rake in the benefits of his own popularity by turning producer with Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani alongside co-star Juhi Chawla
