Happy 27 Days to SRK’s Birthday! 27 Images From His Favorite Photographer

I had a moment of fear that I wouldn’t be able to find a full 27.  But nope!  I totally could!  It wasn’t even hard, because they are all so good.

This isn’t a real countdown (although the best is clearly the last one), but I am going to put in numbers because otherwise I will lose count!

1.1. Let’s start with one that Dabboo identifies as a candid, at Mannat.  Man Shahrukh’s house is nice!

2. Definitely not a candid, but very very good.  Looking at him making love to the camera with his eyes!

3. Oh my, how have I not seen this one before?  And how is Dabboo the only photographer who knows he looks best in suits?

4. Suits and wet shirts, a match made in heaven.

5. Suits and bicycles?  Okay, that’s not quite a perfect match.

6. But really, just a simple suit, that’s the best.

7. Of course we all know the reason Shahrukh is so relaxed in these photos.  Because Dabboo uses his secret weapon, the little girl that the whole film industry adores.

8. Maybe that’s why he came up with this brilliant serious/silly image, because it’s something that would make Myrah laugh.

9. Now this one, you may think “no way a little girl was around for this!”, but nope.  She was right there, hanging out with her parents behind the camera while he was making his “I am a sex God come from the sea to serve you” faces.

10. And she may have been the reason he was laughing so hard in this shot, although I like to think it is just that he finds suspenders hilarious.

11. And his biceps very sexy.

12. But once they are both covered up, he can be serious.

13. I like the concept for this shot, showing off his tiny waist and all, but I don’t know if I like the artsy black and white look.

14. Okay, this is in color, but just silly!  I can’t tell if he is about to throw that ball or have sex with it.

15. Okay, now he’s throwing it.

16. And now he’s having sex with it.

17. Now, let’s take a trip back in time to one of the first Dabboo-SRK images.

18. It’s a good image, but he got a lot more imaginative as time went on.  Like, for instance, Shahrukh Cupid!

19.  Or, Shahrukh-Goldfish Salesman!

20. But simple is also good.  Like, Shahrukh-man whose shirt is falling off.

21.  Or, Shahrukh-man with rope.

22. Or Shahrukh-man smoking.

25. And, in contrast, Shahrukh about to kiss the camera!

26. Let’s take a moment for the man himself!  Dabboo, and his wife/lighting assistant/very lucky woman.

27. Saved the best (I think) for the last.

Okay, you ready for your well-nigh impossible challenge?  You have to somehow pick a top 3 out of these!  Excluding the red sheets shot.

For me, in no particular order;

Shahrukh laughing at suspenders:

  1. Thanks for the link, procratinatrix 🙂 lead me to other making of calendar shootings. I like the choice of photos…as three I would choose 6 (tuxedo), 8 (waterpistol) and 23 (mirror, “you’re talking with me?”)

    • Huh! I didn’t think anyone would choose mirror. Just shows my own prejudice against longhair SRK.

      • 🙂 He can be very “young Don Quixote” with long hair. I also like the subject of the pic…the “man in the mirror” and both reaching out to the other.
        The tuxedo is because of my wish to see him as Atticus Finch (and he looks a lot like I imagined this man while reading the book).
        The waterpistol is because of the multiple meaning of shooting.

    • You’re welcome! I almost went with the other mirror pic, 21, because I haven’t seen that shot before and I like the stark light and shadow. Ultimately I can’t go with a photo that doesn’t show his eyes though. Windows to the soul and all that.

    • Glad to see some love for 3 and 18! Those were new to me, and quickly became some of my favorites.

      • For a second triple I would also choose the 18 (cupido) and the 1st one on the terrace and the smoking (hot) number 22 🙂 (without any doubt I would find one mor triple…and one more 😀 )

  2. Now that I’ve scraped myself off the floor:

    6. Tux. The beautiful lighting which emphasises his dimple. That shy, soft smile, like someone has just made an embarrassing suggestion.And what is he doing with the cummerbund? Surely he’s not going to take it off?
    17. Lux. That come-hither look is irresistible. I love the squeaky clean effect ( good for a soap ad) which is at complete odds with what might be going on in his mind. Makes me want to jump right in.
    16. ..x. He’s doing what with the ball? LOL! Couldn’t leave this out. The intensity of his expression and the angle of the shot are delicious.

    Great post Margaret! Thank you!

    • So glad to see 16 get some love! I am hoping by the end of the comments, every photo will have been chosen as a favorite by somebody.

  3. Oh these are all well and good but the sexiest shoot SRK has ever done is his 50th birthday shoot for Vogue. Even then, the video was better than the pictures alone. Sorry Daboo.

  4. My picks – 6,8,12

    I always thought he looked horrible (sorry ladies!), but he suddenly transformed around age 45. He’s really aging well, ala George Clooney, these are by far his best days. He isn’t afraid to ooze sex appeal. I just about died seeing him ooze it opp Aish in ADHM.

    P.S. There needs to be a prequel “ADHM Origins: the aish srk love story”.
