Shah Rukh Khan has always enjoyed the ‘romantic’ tag in Bollywood. The chocolate-boy has his famous stretched-arms pose in films like ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, ‘Mohabbatein’, ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’, among others, which just gets the women floored. And that dimpled smile? Always assured to get the women swooning!
At the same time, in his personal life, Shah Rukh Khan has always been the tech-savvy guy. From launching a game to promote his superhero film ‘Ra.One’ to continuing the game idea in ‘Don’ and then to ‘Chennai Express’ too, the actor has embraced technology like no other Bollywood hero has.
For ‘Chennai Express’, Shah Rukh Khan has combined the two ideas. Considering that the superstar is, for the first time perhaps, acting his age in the film, his character Rahul is having issues flirting with Deepika Padukone’s character. The film’s team has decided to use this to their advantage.
They have released an interactive Youtube video on their Facebook page that lets users try different options in helping Rahul patao Meena. Of course, it’s not that easy. We’ve tried, and failed.
Looking back at Shah Rukh Khan’s screen history, it’s surprising not many films have taken advantage of this flirty self that the actor has almost always put out in his films. From pataoing a hot Sushmita Sen in ‘Main Hoon Naa’ to dancing with the shy Preity Zinta in ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ and playing band with Rani Mukerji in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ to romancing Kajol in a stable ‘Karan Arjun’, Shah Rukh Khan has flirted with every Bollywood leading-lady possible.
Can we learn anything from Shah Rukh Khan’s flirting techniques? Of course we can! Since there’s still some time till ‘Chennai Express’ releases on 9 August, 2013, let’s look back at Shah Rukh Khan’s romantic hero roles where he flirts the hell out of the women on screen (and the women sitting in front of the screen too), and learn from the King of Romance, none other than Shah Rukh Khan.
