Shahrukh Replies to Birthday Greetings! Thanks Kamal Hassan Two Times, Me Zero

I do so much for the man, and does he acknowledge it? NO! Okay, I understand that he has to thank the people he knows for real-real, but I do have that small moment of “why not me?” buried deep inside. This is probably why he spends so long thanking all those folks in just the right way.

How well do you know family friendly sitcoms of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and today? How many of them do you want Shahrukh to feature in? I have many ideas and I hope at least some of you can also enjoy them!

It is now well past midnight in India. Meaning the SRK Birthday celebrations have officially begun, and I cannot possibly keep up with all the news coming out. But if you have insomnia, or really good social media skills, or are just obsessive about trolling for stories, you can post them all here!

Sunday ReRun Announcement: Celebrate Shahrukh Day By Watching Dhanak!!!!!!!

I am very excited about this! I may rewatch this film myself, because it is so beautiful and such a nice little tribute to what SRK is. If you haven’t seen it before, you MUST. Even if you are not a Shahrukh fan, just because it is a beautiful beautiful film.

Month of SRK: A Gift From Me to You! Two Very Old, Very Very Good, Interviews

These are from the “First Day First Show” book (buy it here! There’s a lot of really good well-written stuff in it) by Anupama Chopra. It’s a collection of the best writings from the first years of her career, when she was a journalist researching and writing long form articles and interviews. They are both good on their own, and also a fascinating time capsule for that period of Shahrukh.

Month of SRK: 3 Ways Shahrukh Gives Us Love

Did I already do a post similar to this this month? Whatever, I don’t care, the sun will never come out again (it’s so rainy here that it still looks like night at 3 in the afternoon), Albie Dog killed his bunny, and I can’t get anyone to see Housefull 4 with me (WHY??? It’s a reincarnation sex farce comedy!!!!! How are people not beating down my door to watch it?). I am going to lose myself in a collection of three categories of Shahrukh things that make me go “aaaaaahhhhhh”.

Month of SRK: Game Post! Sex or Punch, Shahrukh’s Double Roles

I was going to make this marry or kill, but that would be way way too easy. Also, marry or sex. Obviously you marry the better man and kill or sex the other one. But what if sex or kill are your only choices? Well, then (I know you!), you would all be too soft-hearted to kill in order to avoid sex. You would put up with boring sex in order to save the life of the better man. So, new rule! Sex or a swift punch in the nose.

Month of SRK: Shahrukh’s Life Story in 5 Sections

I am writing this at work from memory, I don’t have my King of Bollywood (the book, not the person, the person is obviously always with me in my heart) with me, so forgive errors! Forgive, but correct, I will doublecheck and fix if I have to. Also, GOOD LORD this is long!!!!! Sorry about that.

Silly Sunday/Month of SRK: 6 Cary Grant Movies for Shahrukh to Make

This is a very “niche” post, but it makes me happy. And I really hope at least SOME of you will read this and appreciate it. I can’t be the only one with an encyclopedic knowledge of old Cary Grant movies, right? Oh, and it’s also kind of a long one, I got distracted with the details of the plots a bit.

Month of SRK: 8 SRK Movies To Learn His Life Story

Thanks for the suggestion Emily! Shahrukh (as most celebrities/actors do) has used his real life trauma to support his performances and promote his films. Which also means we can easily find 8 movies to watch if you want to get a sense of the emotional journey of the “real” SRK!

Silly Sunday: Expansion of the “14 Plots to Take a Second Pass” Post! Kuch Kuch, Kal Ho Na Ho, Asoka

I was trying to come up with a new idea, but I just kept cycling back to yesterday’s post, so finally I decided to lean into it and write the additional ideas that were in my head.
