About the Book
SRK-25 YEARS of a LIFE A collection of 30 essays from directors who worked closely with India's biggest and the most successful super star SRK. These stories offer an intimate and honest picture of Shah Rukh the actor, and how he became SRK the icon. 'SRK-25 Years of a Life looks at Shah Rukh through the eyes of the directors who transformed him into unforgettable characters in every film. A deeply personal and professional account of SRK, the actor, as seen by these film-makers, and what makes him a living legend. The design of the book is inspired by the Bollywood hand-painted film posters. These iconic portraits transform paint into living, breathing characters from SRK's movies.

AFTER all these years, sometimes I'm not sure whether I gave form and shape to the characters I played or whether unwittingly they gave me more facets than there ever had existed. Whether it was a Rahul, Raj, Mohan or Aryan; each of them took a piece of me and departed, leaving behind a little of themselves Call it destiny or sheer fluke; they were characters that others didn't take up and that eventually found their way to me They chose me, and as I walked in their shoes and traversed their paths, these characters gave my life a direction that I wasn't in complete control of. Now, too, these characters continue to propel me forward with a force so surreal that I can hardly believe this is anything but a fantastic dream.

To have completed 25 years in this industry is a big dream for a boy who came from Delhi 29 years ago; a dream that worked only because directors dreamt it with me with an undying passion. The business of dreams, however, is a scary one. One false promise, one unconvincing trick, and the dream ends abruptly. It takes uncompromising masters to make a dream come alive. And each time a character I have played has worked his charm into the pages of cinematic history. It has never been just me breathing life into them but also great storytellers fuelling them with an intensity that has stood the test of time. The directors who thought me worthy enough to breathe life into the character they wrote and imagined. Even after more than two decades in the industry, I haven't felt that my story is nearing an end. It's only just begun, as I hungrily look for more lives to live through the characters I play.
