New Delhi : The Bollywood badshah, Shah Rukh Khan turns 53 today. He is celebrating his birthday in the launch event of film Zero's trailer. While age is just a number, the Baazigar will make you fall in love even today. 

Shahrukh Khan hails from a middle-class family and has started his journey back in 1988. Having spent more than 26 years in the Hindi film industry, he has attained stardom through his determination, hard work, and talent.

He is known for characters as Ajay/Vicky in Baazigar, Sunil in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, Raj in DDLJ, Aman in Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kabir Khan in Chak De! India, and Mohan Bhargav in Swades.

In an interview with HuffPost India, when SRK was asked about money, he said, ""Don't be a philosopher or a teacher without being rich, Money is extremely important. Earn it when you can."

When asked about stardom, he said, "I do enjoy being a star. There was a time when I thought... there are times when I still think I'm not big enough a star. I think I would miss being a star. It's like seeing in future and seeing that when I go down on the roads and I'm not able to make people smile when they look at me, which I think is the greatest gift god has given me."

On being abused on Twitter, SRK requested Twitterati not to abuse him in capital letters online. He said, "They have reduced gaalis (cuss) to nothing. I feel so bad for gaalis, I want to start an association to help the gaalis on social media.

"Some of the spellings of the gaalis... you have to pronounce u. The feel of the gaali goes away when you use double o."
