Happy Monday! I went to bed super early last night (sooooooooooo tired, very long weekend) and woke up super early today which is nice. I was able to make bread and reply to all your comments and have coffee before I even had to start work.
Here is where you get to ask me anything you want from “does SRK dye his hair?” to “What is your favorite SRK haircut?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new (SRK related) questions!
Now, Shahrukh Month appropriate question! How do you spell his first name?
I spell it “Shahrukh” which is wrong in many ways. When I first found him, somehow the first few materials I saw spelled it like that so that’s how I’ve always thought of it in my own brain. I keep writing it this way because I know it’s not wrong-wrong, it is a barely acceptable way of writing it, and it’s a little personal nod to my relationship with him and how I’ve always thought of him.
More and more in interviews with friends/co-workers people are referring to him as “Shah Sir” or “Shah Bhai”, so I guess in regular life he just goes by “Shah”. And “SRK” as initials seems to imply that the “Rukh” is a middle name separate to itself. Plus it just makes more sense that way as a name, they are two separate words as they are usually used “King” and “Face”, his parents just combined them as a cool first/middle combo. So Shah Rukh Khan is probably how I would tell someone to write his name if they just wanted the correct way. But I will stick with “Shahrukh” because that’s my special Margaret way. And really, about 25% of the time, that is how it is written. And since the name itself is intended to be written in non-English script, there isn’t exactly a 100% “right” way to write it in English script.
