It’s October, and it’s the 13th post, let’s get spooky! And also sexy. And therefore Vampires!!!! 13 reasons Shahrukh might be a Vampire. Well, 7 reasons he could be, 6 reasons he probably isn’t.
Yesterday I did “top characters“. This is a post that pairs with it, top performances. But is different, characters were wonderful people imagined by the script writer who Shahrukh was lucky to play. These are characters that Shahrukh elevated through his performance. (part of this post is the same as last year, but most of it is new)
Just to be clear, this is not best performances. “Performances” would mean he brought something extra to the role. Which of course he did, but here I want to focus on characters, characters as written in the script, who would have been interesting no matter who played them.
I was running out of ideas, so I asked around, and a friend of mine from Delhi said I HAD to do this idea. And I couldn’t resist! So, Shahrukh and the traditional 16 bridal adornments (Solah Shringaar).
I am possibly, maybe, beginning to overdose on Shahrukh love. Not totally, but I am at least ready to try making fun of him a little. In a loving way.
I know I already did a silly one yesterday, but I’ve got another looooooooong series of fanfics coming tomorrow, and I am worn out! So another easy silly one today. Outfits! Although I am going to try to actually rank them, so that will give you something fun to argue about in the comments.
I did a serious one yesterday, so now I get to do a silly one! 21 hairstyles. Which was surprisingly hard, because he really doesn’t like to change it up much.
Happy Amitabh’s birthday again! And, because it is his birthday, I thought I would do a Shahrukh birthday post that could kind of work for Amitji too. So, co-stars!!!! Not in order in any way, just 22 that are interesting to think about.
It’s Amitabh’s Birthday!!!!! The second most glorious day of the filmic year (after November 2nd, I do have my priorities). And, of course, for Amitabh, I will be doing a full 75 reasons to love him. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
This is a mix, movie quotes and real life, because I just couldn’t pick between the two! And feel free to add any I have missed in the comments.
Happy 24 days to SRK Day!!!!! Let’s look at 24 of his non-film works, his TV ads. Such fun for those of us not in India who never get to see them! Apologies to those in India who are probably tired of them.
I did 13 this morning, now another 12 for this afternoon. This is such a fun way to spend a Sunday! (part 1 here)
It’s Saturday, no one really wants to think today, right? So, Fanvid time! I did 15 last year, this time I am adding on another 11.
Well, this has been a fascinating journey! I’m kind of tempted to do another series on, like, Shahrukh action films or something. (part 1 here, part 2 here, part 3 here)
I am finding this fascinating, looking at the slow progression of the Shahrukh Khan romance over the years. Not every romance, but almost all, the ones I find interesting to talk about. (part 1 here, part 2 here)
This came up because of a comment in our JHMS discussion yesterday. About how it felt like in some ways the happy ending for “Harry” resolved a lot of unhappy endings for similarly noble Shahrukh lover characters. Which got me thinking about what might be the same and different in how SRK romances play out. So, let’s look at an assortment of romances. 7 at a go, because I want to discuss them in depth and then discuss them cumulatively.
This is considerably longer than it was last year, but we are going to have a string of light posts over the next few days, so I thought I should try to give you something a little more substantive today. And you can all argue with me in the comments about what I left out and what is in the wrong order and so on and so on.
I sense a disturbance in the world of my blog. On one side, I have many many voices crying out in joy at the thought of 31 full days of SRK posts. And then on the other side, I have not quite as many voices crying out in despair. So, here’s the deal. I will continue my Monday and Tuesday reviews. And my Friday Classics. And I’ll throw in news posts and so on. It won’t be all SRK all the time. But all TGIF and Sunday fanfic content will be replaced by SRK focused items. I mean, most of the people who read those are SRKians anyway, right? And every day there will be a special SRK birthday post counting down 31 to 1. Some of them very very silly (as this one will be), and some of them serious (for instance, best performances). If you don’t absolutely hate SRK, at least read the headline topic for the post before deciding not to read it, there will be good content in here.
Happy Birthday Ranbir! Last year I promised to bump you up from 12 to 34 if Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was good. And it was! But then Jagga Jasoos was bad. So I will average it and bring you up to 23. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Should I have been counting down, 88 to 1? Oh well, too late now, and anyway that would have been confusing. I’ll stick with straight 1 through 88. Or, for this post, 31-60 (first post here)
Happy birthday Lataji! I felt so guilty last year for celebrating your sister’s birthday, and skipping yours. But not again!
Okay, let’s do this! A full 85! I broke it into 3 parts last year, but this year I think I will just do one massive post. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
I know, he’s dead. But that’s no reason not to celebrate his life! Especially because Dev himself seems like someone who was always down for a celebration. So, here are 12 random reasons to celebrate! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Happy Birthday Kumar Sanu! Last year I went with 16 reasons, this year I think I will add one more and go for 17. You have done so many great songs, I could probably make it all the way to 20, but we will start with 17 (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
