Shah Rukh Khan turns 52 today, a celebratory moment not just for the country but the entire world. His following goes way past the geographical borders. But whether it is Eid or Diwali, King Khan never ceases to disappoint his fans by ceremoniously waving them from his home, Mannat’s balcony. Hence, on this special day the army of fans would have already gathered outside his base for his one glimpse. But how crazy can you get because “normal is just another word for lifeless!”
1. Ganga Sanan
While promoting his film ‘Fan’ which was also about an obsessive fan, the actor spoke about incidents when he faced such people in his real life. The actor said that one such incident really stood out to him when a crazy fan broke into Mannat (his house) and took a swim in his private swimming pool. As he was leaving, the actor’s security personnel caught him and asked why and how did he break in, to which the fan simply replied that he wanted to have a bath in the same waters in which Shah Rukh bathed in.
2. ‘Jabra Fan’
SRK has many diehard fans, but there is also Vishal Singh or as he likes to call himself, Vishahrukh Khan. Yes, this obsessive fan is a businessman from Lucknow whose whole life revolves around King Khan. His entire house, that is every wall both inside and outside is covered with posters of Shah Rukh Khan. Vishal also has the actor’s posters covering his car. His medical shop too has his posters! But it doesn’t just stop there, he has even named his kids, Simran and Aryan. However, the last straw has to be the fact that for his honeymoon, Vishal drove 1300 kilometers to Mumbai with his wife and they spent their special time standing outside Mannat.
3. “Chand Taare tod ke le aun”, quite literally in this case!
SRK once shared a story of a fan in Australia who showed her love for the actor in a unique way. This Aussie woman buys a piece of land on the moon for the actor every year. She has bought several acres of land on the arid landscape over the years and the actor receives certificates for it every year from the Lunar Republic Society.
4. Worth the money?
According to reports, Mehjabeen who is from Bangladesh spent a whopping USD $3300 to head to Malacca for two days just so that she could meet the star. The woman’s dream did come true when she met SRK in the flesh. However, he only smiled, posed for pictures, gave a few autographs and left in a short while.
5. Baadshah From Bollywood to LA
You might have his posters in your room, wallpaper on your phone’s lock screen and maybe retweet his every status, but Page Wilson from LA has gone a step further. She recreates King Khan’s life in miniatures paying tribute to his contribution to all aspects of entertainment from films to television, concerts, advertisements and sports.Read More
