Shahrukh Birthday ReRun! 9 Best Expressions!

He jokes sometimes about how he is only working with 5 expressions, but we all know that is a joke, he is really a wonderful actor.  Although he also knows how to use his face in certain set ways that the fans love.  Here are my 8 favorites, feel free to add your own in the comments (reminder: no way to insert images from your computer, but if you can find them online, you can insert an image link by simply going down a line before and after.  It works best with a short link).

1.1. Slight smile with dimples and shared joke eyebrows

  1. I like his serious Chak De face, also the gif – if he were clothed in that it could be ‘things OK? …Good’ sort of thing, with dimples…


  2. I’m glad you re-posted this one. I had so much fun answering this one last year that I went back and copied it to paste again here (with some tweaks for number changes). Hope you don’t mind. My answers still stand!

    I couldn’t keep it to just 8. I’m mixing his acting and real life expressions. In no particular order:
    1. The swag face when he’s making an entrance. Just 100% confidence. Example, 10-15 seconds into the Marjaani video.
    2. The look he gets when listening to an interviewer patiently, chin slightly down, eyes slightly raised and widened, wrinkly forehead. Sometimes bites his lips or pulls his collar back.
    3. Straight sweet smile on the edge of a laugh, eyes crinkly, teeth showing and parted. Like when he’s around kids or surprised by a funny comment.
    4. His cricket watching face, especially when it’s not going so well. Just intensity, intelligence, and fierce concentration.
    5. Blood covered rage face–just after he’s gotten beaten up, when he turns on his opponent and you know the other guy’s in trouble. Crazy eyes, bared teeth, sweaty hair.
    6. All of his drunk expressions–sorry I can’t pick one!
    7. His face when he’s contentedly hugging someone, eyes closed, mouth soft, sometimes punctuated by a little nuzzle on the huggees forehead. Like the poster for PBDHH.
    8. I think of your number 7 look (open mouth lovestruck) as his “I love you so much it’s making me stupid” face. Lovestruck is more elegant, lol. Favorite example is in Sona Nahi Na Sahi when he looks at Juhi just before going through the imaginary marriage ceremony, towards the end of the song.
    9. Related to “sexy eyes” is his “come hither” face, well known from the Dabboo Ratnani 2014 calendar and this Twitter selfie. My, my, my.
    10. The completely child-like “did you see that?!?” look he gets when he does a little trick on set, or wins a rapid-fire round in an interview.
    11. The “I want to say something but I just can’t” look. Like in Chennai Express at the beginning of Tere Rastaa Chhodoon Na or in JHMS when Anushka shows him the ring in the airport. Intense eyes saying everything, lips tightening.
    12. His shy looking down while smiling face, with dimples and eyelashes in full effect.


  3. My favorite when he changes who he is just with his expression and a slight one at that. Mild mannered car fixer to Kali, brash Raj back to sweet Suri, Bablloo to criminial and back in Duplicate..Ghost to real man to ghost in Pahelli. This is also his acting so I’ll count it as both.

    • My favorite of those is in Baazigar. Such a silly shallow movie, and then there is one moment when he learns Twinkle’s brother just died and his face immediately shifts to sincere and concerned instead of silly.
