He is the Indian heartthrob, one of the highest paid actors, famous for his enticing personality, witty catchphrases, and romantic roles.
Yeah! We are talking about none other than Bollywood's most romantic hero Shah Rukh Khan. SRK has always managed to be the unparalleled King of Bollywood. He is not an action hero though. He is known for romantic characters he has played.
Most of his fans think that Shah Rukh's romantic image is inspired by his love life. That is, how he fell in love with Gauri and how the two got married.
But we have something lesser-known to tell you. It is about SRK's parents - Taj Mohammad Khan and Fatima Khan. Their magical love story is nothing short of a fairy tale.
Read on to know their magical tale and whether SRK-Gauri love story is a leaf drawn from the love tale of Khan's parents.
Shah Rukh Khan's all-time favourite romantic person is his father. His father Taj Mohammad Khan is also his role model.
Shah Rukh Khan once said in 'The Anupam Kher Show' (Indian talk show hosted by Anupam Kher and that aired on Colors TV channel) that his dad is a true inspiration for him. His dad was a lawyer and had M.A, L.L.B degrees.
As per SRK, his father Taj started furniture business in the beginning but it didn't go well and so he moved to another business of restaurant but he failed again. Then, he tried his luck by opening a tea stall. He even ran a canteen in National School of Drama, New Delhi.
SRK's dad Taj was 29-year-old when he met SRK's mother Fatima. Their first meeting was at India Gate, Delhi, and they met with a car accident at that time.
SRK's dad helped every passenger of the car including Fatima. SRK's dad Taj took Fatima to the hospital as she was writhing in pain. She was severely injured.
The blood group of Fatima and Taj matched. Thus, it was easy for Taj to help Fatima. Later, with the passing time, the two started liking each other.
Taj and Fatima got married. Taj told his family that he wanted to marry Fatima and the family agreed.
Seems like SRK's parents' love story has inspired charming actor SRK to create his own.
No wonder, SRK and Gauri's love tale is undeniably magical.
