Ask any random guy, living in any part of the world, what he knows about Bollywood and he will proudly admit of knowing Shah Rukh Khan. He, in a way, defines Bollywood and takes it to places some of us may not even know exists in the world map. That’s the beauty of this man- he came out of nowhere, he conquered our hearts and he connected Bollywood to the rest of the world, and we wish the actor a very happy birthday!
