He was a brilliant student in school and excelled at sports. His passion for acting was a fire that was always burning in his heart. While he went to Hansraj College to pursue a degree in Economics, he could be seen mostly at the Delhi Theatre Action.
The Beginning of His Acting Career
Shah Rukh was supposed to debut on the television screen with the 1988 show Dil Dariya. However, due to production issues, the launch of the show was delayed. He went on to debut with the show Fauji in 1989. Since his debut, he worked on many television shows such as Umeed, Circus, and Wagle Ki Duniya. Since Shah Rukh’s parents died of cancer while he was still very young, he admits that acting helped him vent his inner feelings
It was when Shah Rukh’s mother passed away that the actor decided to shift to Mumbai to become a film actor. With immense determination and just Rs.1,500 in his pockets, Shah Rukh’s Bollywood journey began with the movie Deewana in 1992. He had received his first Filmfare award for the Best Male Debut for that film. However, the struggles didn’t end there. He often had to take up roles rejected by other actors. But, it was sheer will and hard work that got him to where he is today.
