An Open Letter To Shah Rukh Khan

Dear SRK,

Baat baat pe bewajah tere roothne se,

Chhoti chhoti teri bachkani badmashiyon se,

Mohabbat karunga main

Jab tak hai jaan, jab tak hai jaan”

Shah Rukh Khan

I am well aware that this letter might never reach you and may get lost amidst all your fan mail, but one of the things that I have learnt from your life is to be optimistic. With this vivid spark of optimism I am writing you this letter with lots of love and respect. It is your birthday today, so many happy returns of the day and may god fill you with abundance of joy and health (which you don’t really take care of).

I would like to make a confession which might border on the verge of insanity. I have always been in love with your “K…K…k..Kiran” and “Rahul, Naam Toh Suna Hi Hoga”. I remember when it was my 12th grade math board examination and I still had the audacity to watch Kuch Kuch Hota Hai the night before.

I know it sounds silly, but I believe in the idea of prince charming and the entire credit of this goes to you. Your love for Simran in DDLJ has always made me feel elated. I mean, who flies from London to India to confess and marry his one true love, that too on just a probability of the girl being in love with him or not? The dialogue in Dil Toh Pagal hai that “Somewhere, someone has been made for you and someday you will definitely meet her” is one of my favorite dialogues which I believe in very adamantly till today. Your role of a doting father in Kuch Kuch Hota hai will always be cherished and I am still waiting for the comet to arrive so that I can also ask for one true love, though the wait seems endless.

I must say that Gauri Khan is very lucky, and your kids even luckier. You exemplify romance both on screen and off. In spite of all the troubles, you managed to make her your own which is simply spectacular- I once read somewhere that you came on an elephant to marry your beloved. Your grandeur, your style and your charisma are definitely unparalleled. Kajol was probably correct when she said that even if you romance a cow, you would still make it look convincing.

Open your arms, twist your legs and you will always get the girl. Your impish charm makes you a loveable rogue. Whether it is your chocolaty boy look in DDLJ or the suave business tycoon attire of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham or your six pack abs in Om Shanti Om, you have perfected it all. You are the guy who scares the lady whom he claim to love, throws women off rooftops, deliberately delays the train of his love interest to spend more time with her, waits and goes to jail for his Zaara. Exceptionally multi-talented is the word for you. You don’t have the classic good looks of Hrithik Roshan or Brad Pitt but you still remain the undisputed king of romance, and your wit and humor is something that I adore.

Once again wishing you a very happy birthday and may you keep entertaining your audience for many years to come. I hope you read my letter and reply to it as well, so that I have the chance to faint just like Sandy (Om Shanti Om) swooned and fainted after seeing you.

With lots of love,

Your diehard fan.
