Shahrukh Summer: Shahrukh in Husband Roles, Which Would You Marry, Divorce, or Leave at the Alter?

This is a variation on a previous post, but in that case I was leaving it open to all Shahrukh roles. Now I am limiting it to just the ones where he actually played a husband so we have a clear comparison. And also to help alert you all to this post from late last night where I discussed Shahrukh as a husband on film.

Asoka: Powerful, controlling, but ultimately responsible

Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham: Rich, kind, generous, perhaps too emotional?

Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam: Very sexual, very rich, but also very jealous

Saathiya: Kind, forgiving, responsible. Unattractive hair though.

Chalte Chalte: Fun, funny, hardworking, a bit emotionally fragile

Paheli: Sexy, fun, giving, not very grounded in reality

Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna: Cheater

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi: Nice house, nice man, not very macho

Ra.One: Kind man, supportive husband, bad hair

Fan: Powerful, confident, very rich. Terrible at communicating and sharing burdens

Raees: Young, happy, ambitious. A bit danger seeking.

Okay, you ready for my life plan? Marry Asoka, then divorce him because he will give me a big settlement and protect me for ever. Leave K3G Shahrukh at the altar, let someone else deal with his tears. Have sex with Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam Shahrukh, and then leave him at the alter too. Take all my experience and money and marry Saathiya Shahrukh. Then take Chalte Chalte Shahrukh as my second husband, I have a ton of emotional energy to spare on him since I have Saathiya Shahrukh to bolster me up. Leave Paheli Shahrukh at the altar, I don’t need all that whimsy in my life. Divorce KANK Shahrukh but steal all his coats. Marry Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi Shahrukh and move into his nice house with Saathiya Shahrukh and Chalte Chalte Shahrukh, they are all Punjabis so they should get along fine. Leave Ra.One Shahrukh at the alter with a note to fix his hair. Marry and divorce Fan Shahrukh so I have another loyal powerful protector. Marry Raees Shahrukh to save him from himself, he and Chalte Chalte and Rab Ne Shahrukh can all start a legitimate business together while Saathiya Shahrukh gives them wise advice.

How about you?

  1. Okay, I wouldn’t leave any guy at the altar because that’s just rude.

    Haven’t a clue what Saathiya is yet so can’t include it.

    I will marry him in:

    – Asoka (have not seen the entire movie yet, only bits but I liked the few scenes I have seen and will watch it in full soon. And; Roshni Se? I don’t think I need to say more.)

    – K3G (a little on the whiney side but I will happily deal with that. He’s a good man)

    – HTHS (one really, really hot guy. I won’t even give him a choice to marry me. He has to. It’s a done deal. End of story.)

    – Chalte Chalte (I love him in this. He is perfectly average, in the best of ways)

    – Paheli (maybe too perfect, but I can’t let the opportunity pass either)

    – Raees (needs to have a good talking to though. I do disapprove of some of his antics)

    – Ra.One (haircut before honeymoon, else I have will go with his AI instead!)

    – RNBDJ (ref. above and everything will be okay)

    I will divorce him in:

    – KANK (because he really doesn’t love me so it makes no sense to keep the marriage alive. A bummer because I like him!and his feisty self.)

    – Fan (sorry Aryan, but I don’t need your money and feel your ego would be in the way of a good relationship. Bugger off already! Well, unless you take the time to reflect on your life. It’s high time you did.)


    • This is all excellent planning. And hopefully your divorce will force Aryan into some introspection.

      My one concern is how all your Shahrukh husbands will get along with each other. Would you want them simultaneously, or in multiple lifetimes, or would you split yourself into multiple essences and life all these lives at once?


        • Heck, I’m having them all at once just for fun. So are you going to travel the world, husband to husband?

          • Fortunately, most of my husbands reside in India. So we travel back and forth between Europe and India. It’s quite manageable.


  2. I really can’t abide by the thought of marrying any of the characters except for Rahul in K3G – I know we’ve been through this before but I love the vulnerability of that character and I think it’s what would make him a good husband. He knows how to protect me and make sure that my needs are met wink wink and also he’s vulnerable enough to be open to reuniting with his father although he was so deeply hurt. I like that in a guy! He seems like he would occasionally be so moved that he would cry after sex and I think that’s hot (as long as it’s not during, yuck.)

    I would for sure sex up HTHS Shahrukh but might skidadddle at the altar (or mandap!)

    I love his smoldering intensity in Raees but I don’t want a husband who’s going to get shot. I really hate the end of that film, the character does so much for people in addition to this weird illegal world he lives in that I think the movie would’ve been more interesting if he could have helped change prohibition laws instead. Civil disobedience!

    Ok back to packing! We move Saturday! Yahoo!!!!


    • Good luck on the move! Every time I move, I assume it will be like this:

      And it never is.

      Also, how DARE you turn your nose up at Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi Shahrukh???

  3. I think you’re a little optimistic to think the ones you divorce would become your loyal protectors. I imagine it’s quite the opposite. Bigamy may be a better option, just don’t get caught!

    • I don’t know, I feel like at least Asoka and Fan would have a sense of responsibility even after I left them. Too egotistical to acknowledge the marriage is really over.

  4. I wouldn’t marry one of those guys but I definitely would like their company. Maybe I would marry KuchKuchHotaHai Rahul because I would love him as much as I would love Anjali. And I think he would be a really good partner…in everything.


  5. Surprising because the movie isn’t my favorite, but I feel Chalte Chalte Shah Rukh would actually be the best husband for me. He needs to settle down a bit, but he’s humble and resourceful and charming, and maybe the least patriarchal of the bunch. I like K3G Shah Rukh, but the in-laws are a problem. Raees is super sexy but too distracted by building his empire and trying not to get caught for murdering people. KKHH Rahul is gorgeous (and Farida is the best) but he has that passive, weepy side. Suri…what can I say? I like him well enough, and he does have a beautiful house, but by the end I find him a little insufferable.

    • Your logic definitely holds up. My one concern with Chalte Chalte Shahrukh is that he spends so much time working. But then, that’s better than KKHH Shahrukh sitting around the house weeping at you.
