There are innumerable famous personalities in this world in every field. But, today I would like to talk about a globally popular megastar, Shahrukh Khan. He is a famous actor not just within the boundaries of India, but also across the globe. Today, he has millions of people who look up to him as a role model and inspiration.

He is worldwide known for his immaculate acting skills and his ability to help the poor and needy by donating millions to the charity and non-governmental organisations. He came from a very poor family as the financial conditions were not very supportive in initial years of his studies, let alone his acting career. Even though he was really good at his studies, he chose to pursue his life- long childhood dream of becoming an actor. He started his acting career from theatre, from where he went on to do some supportive roles in the then television channel, DD national. From there it was an endless journey of tonnes of hard-work and dedication. From being an absolute nobody to becoming a renowned superstar, he has come a long way in his life. Every day, he wakes up to thousands of his fans, from across the country who just wait to get his one glimpse. He has successfully managed to give India one of the most iconic acting career in her acting history.

Whenever, his films are released, people go crazy to watch him in the cinemas. Thus, the tickets would be out within just few hours of the release. Due to his magnificent acting potential and immense contribution to charities, he has been awarded with a huge number of awards, both nationally and internationally.

I genuinely feel that he is a very down to earth person and humble in nature. He walks out with a charismatic aura which is not the case with other Bollywood actors. I respect him as a person and follow his social media accounts in instagram, facebook and twitter. He is one of the greatest actors on the history of Indian cinema, and his work will remain unforgettable.

Overall, this was a popular person in my country.
