What should Shahrukh Khan do next?

Shahrukh Khan is well known for his romantic role. He started his career with the film Deewana in which he played a lover. However, it was the villainous roles which made him a massive superstar early on.

The role of Anti Hero in Darr And Baazigar made him popular among fans who thronged theatres to see him act. Anjaam was another high point in his career for which he won filmfare for the best villain.

Nonetheless, more success was in store, success that Shahrukh khan himself did not foresee. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge was a blockbuster and one of the longest running bollywood films in history. The essence of the film appealed to people of many nationalities.

After Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge put Shahrukh Khan on a pedestal he delivered more such hits. Dil toh Pagal hai and Kuch Kuch Hota hai were phenomenal with King Khan enduring a rough patch after that.

After the 90’s

In the 2000’s films like Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om, Chak De India, Rab ne Bana Di Jodi and My Name is Khan worked well both at the box office and with die-hard fans. However, post 2010 massive success has been hard to come by.

Fans expect Shahrukh khan to deliver mega blockbusters so when he delivers only blockbuster they feel happy but not fully satisfied. Chennai Express, Raees, Don 2 and Jab Tak hai Jaan were all commercially successful films that promised Shahrukh Khan fans hope for the future.

Shahukh is praised for his acting because he gives his all to the film. Nonetheless a bad script can make even the best actor bad examples of this include Zero, Ra.one, Happy new year, Dilwale and more.

Shahrukh needs to do a couple of films which are successful both commercially and story wise. This will help him feel like a superstar all over again which we know is important to him.

Here are the type of films that Shah Rukh khan should do next:

1)The Husband

Shahrukh Khan has given his wife Gauri Khan enough credit for his success but what if he plays a coy onscreen husband to a wife who is ultra-successful. The story can start with the wife achieving a lifetime award and giving credit of success to her husband.

However it is not all as the husband has not just supported the wife but done the work she claims credit for as male fashion designers don’t get as much applause as female fashion designers.  As the film progresses the husband threatens to reveal the details on multiple occasions while the wife continues with her pompous appearance.

Shahrukh Khan will be convincing in such a role and make audience fall in love with his depth and charm all over again.


An escrow is an agreement in which a third party receives and disburses money or property for the primary transacting parties. Shahrukh Khan can star in the film initially as the third party merely holding money that will be given if the first party fulfils the obligation of the contract.

However, he learns that the person who represents the second party is dead and the killer is coming for him as he has the money. It throws his monotonous life upside down and forces him to figure what is really going on.

3)Tender Loin

Tenderloin as you know it is the part of meat served in most restaurants with a good dressing. It is part between the lowest rib and hip bones. Nonetheless this won’t be a movie about eating meat. It will be about an animal dear to Shahrukh khan who saves him by taking the blow to his loin. It happens when he is under attack from a force that has destroyed the village he lives in.

There has not been a single film centered around the bond between animal and man in Bollywood. Shahrukh Khan is the right man to break this trend right? The animal can be horse, dog, wolf or even an elephant.

4)Historical Drama

Sharukh has done only one film that is based on a lot of historical facts and that was Ashoka. After that he has stereotyped himself as a romantic hero which audience have grown sick of watching. The stage is set for him to play a man who took on the most evil rulers of his time. Also he did it with minimum resources and maximum courage.

This will bring back the belief that Sharukh Khan is not written completely off when it comes to playing brave men.

5)Maverick Minister

Sharukh Khan has not done a political role yet which is really disappointing. He has the charisma, wit and diplomatic face to play a politician really well. He can star as a key figure in a political party who runs the show while the face of the party romances the public.

Moreover, the film can show what lengths politicians actually have to go to in order to be the winning party. Nevertheless Shahrukh uses only blackmail as he is exceptional at digging secrets. He does not use muscle which most politicians depend upon. The film will surely be a box office success.
