You don’t do that without outrageous amounts of charisma and absolute mastery of your craft. Comfortable in almost every genre going, there’s pretty much nothing he can’t do.”
The Om Shanti Om star is the only Indian actor on the list, alongside some most memorable stars of cinema, from all over the world like Al Pacino, Joaquin Phoenix, and Leonardo DiCaprio. The list also includes an iconic dialogue of Shah Rukh from the film Jab Tak Hai Jaan: “Every day life kills us a little. A bomb will kill you only once.”
He played an Indian Army Major named Samar Anand in the film, which marked the last directorial feature from Yash Chopra. It also starred Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
