Here are some different phases of this superstar who is filled with enormous energy to impress the audience worldwide.
1. Anti-Hero Phase: Most actors tend to take such risks in the later parts of their career, but for Shah Rukh Khan who was just a few films old, it was an opportunity to get recognized for his acting capabilities.
He was then popular for the same when he played a similar role in Anjaam which won him the best actor in a negative role award.
Twelve years later, he was offered by Farhan Akhtar to play the titular character in Don: The Chase Begins Again which was popular among the masses and also contributed the sequel Don 2 five years later.

This pose has become a pop culture amongst the masses who have been performing it all their lives.
This pose is seen in almost every film of the romantic genre he has done so far.
3. Serious and Intense Performances: Most of his films in this category were completely away from his comfort zone and he excelled in different avatars.
Be it a self-destructive alcoholic in Devdas, a troubled NRI in Swades, a determined hockey coach in Chak De India, an avenging soul in Karan Arjun and finally a disabled man on a mission to spread humanity in My Name Is Khan.
Shah Rukh has proven that he can pull off any kinds of characters given to him.
4. Offbeat Performance: An actor means that he/she can pull off all sorts of roles and this was proven by Shah Rukh Khan in his 25-year-old career.
With these choices of roles, he has managed to attract fan base with the adults of today.
