Two of the biggest stars of the Indian Film Industry, who have been instrumental in helping to make Bollywood so popular, can be named as none other than Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. The two Khans have put considerable effort into making their dreams come true.

Salman Khan
Shahrukh Khan


Salman Khan who was born on December 27, 1965, is lucky to have his roots in the Indian film industry. He is the son of Salim Khan, a legendary writer who came out with scripts like “Don”, “Sholay” and “Deewar”. His career began with a very simple script of the movie “Biwi Ho to Aisi” in 1988. Though his first movie could not give him his claim to fame, this was later achieved in his romantic hit “Maine Pyar Kiya” in 1989. Thereafter, the big star began his journey only to increases in his brightness in the movie starlit sky.

Shah Rukh Khan who is also popularly known as the King of Bollywood has a different background that involved no relation from the film fraternity. He came into this world in November 2, 1965. He began his career with a successful television serial and his first movie was “Deewana” released in 1992. Since then, there has been no halt to his career of successful movies and tear jerking performances.

Personal Life

The media has been very unfair in producing a negative image of Salman Khan related to gossip about his personal life. Just as every human on earth, Salman has had his set of relationships that were unsuccessful due to some reason or other and he is still hunting for his perfect life partner. He has four siblings including his two brothers Sohail Khan and Arbaaz Khan who have proved their talent in the film industry as well.

Shahrukh Khan has also been involved in many false controversies but none of them were related to his personal life. A father of two, Aryan Khan and Suhana Khan, he is a successful family man who has encouraged his wife in every way to achieve her own dream. He has one elder sister, Shehnaz Lalarukh.

Awards and Nominations

Salman Khan was lucky to have his first Filmfare Award for his first commercial movie success “Maine Pyar Kiya” for the Best Male Debut. He has been also appreciated and awarded for his role in the movie “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” as best supporting actor. His national honor includes the Rajiv Gandhi Award for his extraordinary contribution to the world of entertainment.

Another example of how the success of the movie helps an artist receive his/her first award comes from the story of Shah Rukh Khan. He was awarded the Filmfare for his first commercial success in “Deewana”. He became an overnight sensation for the portrayal of an obsessed lover in "Darr" opposite Juhi Chawla and Sunny Deol. He is also recognized as a unique performer who received an award for his negative character in the movie “Baazigar” starring opposite Kajol.


Stars like these two have proven they can shine when they focus on the art and craft of acting.

  • Though Salman was blessed with film Background, Shah Rukh Khan was not.
  • Shah Rukh stands as a family man whereas Salman Khan is still hunting for the perfect girl.
  • Both of them are successful because of their hard work and determination.

The two Khans have their own sets of fans and are in competition with each other but only as actors vying for a brighter spot in the glare of the cameras.
