For the last two years, this time of the day on November 2nd the entire media was parked inside mannat with a huge crowd gathered outside. Shahrukh graciously waved to them, answered all the queries of media, he cut all the cakes and ensured everyone had a good time. This year he is away and courtesy Twitter, his entire fan base from across the world is participating in celebrating his 45th Birthday to the hilt.
I have interviewed Shahrukh Khan thrice. He is a committed listener. Gives long detailed answers to each question and makes sure one gets a proper byte. Though personally I am not happy with either of the three interviews (maybe OSO one was wholesome to some extent). I would love to chat with him about his parents as thats an area that fills me with a lot of curiosity. Losing one's parents at a young age and overpowering all odds must have been quite a ride. This aspect of SRK hasn't been probed in detail even in the books written on him (closest comes Anupama Chopra's book on him). Maybe I shall get the coveted time with him soon.
I had asked you guys to send your wishes on Shahrukh's birthday. Your favourite films, scenes of SRK's movies. Which actress makes the best pair with him? For me Chak De India is SRK at his best. Do you think he should be doing more films with directors like Shimit Amin? What do you think of SRK as an actor and as a person? The response has been overwhelming. I haven't been able to include all of your tweets but I have tried to balance it as much as possible. Many of you have sent lovely cards and videos. have included their links. Hope you enjoy reading this looooooong blog post. And yes Happy Birthday Shahrukh Khan. You are truly one of a kind. God Bless!

@Faridoon_S I met SRK when he was shooting for KANK..the best quality about him is that he gives his full attention to you because he knows how special that moment is to you. He is one of the nicest celebs that I have met personally. He treats everyone with respect and love. You wouldn't know if he's in a bad mood because he doesn't let it affect that few moments you have with him. That says a lot! :)
@Faridoon_S My fav film of SRK r: 1. Chak de India 2. MNIK 3. Swades 4. Devdas and 1 of my all time fav DDLJ!

@Faridoon_S Best pairing with SRK is Juhi, Madhuri, Kajol only look good with SRK. He and Kareena look so cute in Asoka and that is why I can't wait to see them together in Ra.One. I would love to see him and Manisha Koirala in another full on film. Not to forget him and Preity, Rani. All the films him and Ash did together, they look very nice together. Well anyone looks good with SRK so moving on:))
I love like all SRK films. He is just too perfect at everything he does.
some amazing scenes
Even though Mohan has good drinking water he still bought that water from the kid. So heartfelt. What a performance and what a man ShahRukh is.
My Name Is Khan. I love the whole film but a very nice scene is where he went to the place wanting to pay 500 dollars to meet the president and the African American lady told him that the event is only for Christian. Then he told her to keep the money for all the children that is not Christian. "Honey, feed Africa"
Great SRK films like K3G, Mohabbatein, Veer Zaara, Chak De India, KANK, DDLJ, Asoka, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Don, Paheli, Chaahat, Dil Se, Pardes, KKHH..all of them.
Wishing the one and only KING a very special/happy Birthday. May you live a long and happy life with your lovely family. You are the king of the world, the best and you will always be
Love him lots and lots
his fan 4 life...Meshanna

the !st Ever Movie I watsh to the king was "Karan Arjun" this film have raised a tremendous amount of emotions I have had do not go beyond seven years old .. & I loved him since that Perhaps the reason 4 my love to Shahrukh that I Grow up watching his Movie my Father & My Mom a Huge Fan to Shahrukh ji .. & watch All his Movie , without exception, to this day
So it was natural for me to fall in love with all the work of this legeant " King Khan " & he Desarve this nikname
I can not choose one a favorite movie of his films, because that will be injustice of what remains
but I can name some of his work "#DDLJ , #KKHH , #K3G , #KHNH, #MNIK , #MHN
, #DTPH , #RNBDJ , #CDI , OSO" more &more;the bist dialoge
“Babuji ne kaha gaon chhodh do, sub ne kaha paro ko chhodh do, paro ne kaha sharab chhodh do…aaj tum keh rehe ho yeh haweli chhodh do…eik din ayega jab woh kahega duniya hi chhodh do… ”
“Kaun Kambakht Bardasht karne ke liye peeta hai… main to isi liye peeta hoon ke hosh main na reh saku…”
“Kitney aasani se ginwa diya ki tumhe har pal meri yaad aati thi, magar yeh kabhi nahi socha ki un palo mein beeta toh main hi tha… diya tum jalati thi lekin us mein jalta toh mein hi tha…”
Om Shanti Om
“Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost”
“Itni shiddat se maine tumhe paane ki koshish ki hai
ki har zarre ne mujhe tumse milane ki koshish ki hai….
kehte hai agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho
toh poori kaynath tumhein usse milane ki koshish mein
lag jaati hai…aap sabne mujhe meri chahat se mila diya…
“Agar kisi cheez ko puri shiddat se chaho,,,toh puri kayanaat usse aapse milvane par majboor ho jaati hai”
Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge:
“Koi baat nahi Senoreeta… bade bade deshon mein… aisi choti choti batein… hoti rehti hai”
“Kabhi Kabhi Kuch Jeetne Ke Liya Kuch Haar Na Parta Hai, Aur Haar Ke Jeetne Wale Ko Baazigar Kehte Hain”

“Aaj….. Aaj ek Haseen aur baant loon…. Aaj ek Dua aur mang loon….Aaj ek aansoo aur pee loon… Aaj ek Zindagi aur ji loon…Aaj ek Sapna aur dekh loon…..Aaj….. Kya pata Kal Ho Naa Ho!!!”
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai:
“Hum ek baar jite hain, ek baar marte hain, shaadi bhi ek baar hoti hai, aur pyar….ek hi baar hota hai”
“Pyaar zindagi ki tarah hota hai, Jiska her morr aasan nahi hota, Her raste per khushi nahi milti, Per jab hum zindagi ka saath nahin chhodte, To hum pyaar karna kyon chhodein…”
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham:
“Zindagi mein kuch banna ho, Kuch hasil karna ho, Kuch jeetna ho, To hamesha apne dil ki suno, Aur agar dil se bhi koi jawaab na aaye … To apni aankhein band karke apni Maa aur Baba ka naam lo … Phir dekhna tum her manzil paa sakoge, Her mushkil aasan ho jayegi, Jeet tumhari hogi ….. Sirf tumhari…”
Dil To Pagal Hai:
“Rahul, naam to suna hoga”
“Don ke dushman ki sabse badi galti hai…. ki woh don ka dushman hai”
Whatever the role played by Shah Rukh "Romnci, dramatic, aggressive, evil, or anything else is always the best
And always has the talent to convince those around him & his Fan that this is his character
If Shahrukh "Man, actor, father, husband, boss, or a famous person," Always keep love and humility is the key feature of his personality in dealing with his fan always
we love him & we will Still love him Coz Shahrukh is the Person Planted in our hearts love We learned how to love .. So we owe him our Soul's and our lives
@Faridoon_S Hey Fari.. I've created something for @iamsrk ..Hope he sees it!! http://yfrog.com/1srfep
