Shah Rukh Khan’s career is now officially over

The longer you keep wine, the better it ages, becoming premium in value. However, when you age beer for too long, it goes bad. You don’t have to be a genius to figure out which direction Bollywood badshaah Shah Rukh Khan is heading.

From 1992-2007, SRK had absolutely everything. He gave Bollywood one blockbuster after another. The evergreen Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) ran for a record 1,000 weeks as SRK emerged as the undisputed ‘King of Romance’.

He was every director’s delight. From 1993 to present date, the father-son duo of the late Yash Chopra and current Yash Raj chief Aditya Chopra have only directed SRK. From 1986 to 2003, Aziz Mirza directed only SRK in all his TV serials and films.

Farah Khan as a director is nothing without him. Rohit Shetty dumped his highly lucrative partnership with Ajay Devgan for him. Even Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raju Hirani first approached SRK for both Munnabhai and Rancho (3 Idiots).

He was also an innovator par excellence. He had the guts to play the villainous trilogy (Baazigar in 1993Darr in 1993 and Anjaam in 1994) early on in his career and would think nothing of dying regularly on screen.

He experimented with the grand Asoka (2001), remade Devdas (2002) with great commercial success and also tried different things with Ashutosh Gowarikar (Swades  in 2004) and Amol Palekar (Paheli  in 2005).

He remade the Amitabh Bachchan 1978 classic Don in 2006 and got away with it as many found the second half of SRK’s film better than the original.

SRK probably peaked with Chak De! India in 2007. He was totally out of his comfort zone. No romance. No heroine. No dancing in Switzerland. No scope for hamming – a solid movie with a radically different role.

SRK pulled it off and struck gold at the box office too. Everyone thought he would consolidate and go from strength to strength. But when you are at the absolute top, there is only one way and that is down.

While SRK definitely gave hits between 2008 and 2015, he has had more misses.

In Om Shanti Om (2007) and Billu (2009), he practically played himself (how original!). In Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) and Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), he went back to his mindless romances and got more bad reviews than good. In fact, Jab Tak Hai Jaan came in the Twitter age and became the butt of jokes and memes.

He had an extended role in Dulha Mil Gaya (2010) that ended in a Grade 1 disaster at the box office. My Name Is Khan (2010) actually lost money for certain distributors. Ra.One (2011) could compete for his worst film and one of the weakest science fiction films of all time.

Don 2 (2011) didn’t recreate the magic of the first film – this at a time when sequels end up making much more money. That’s why Don 3 keeps getting postponed though it has not been outright scrapped yet.

Chennai Express (2013) and Happy New Year (2014) were totally mindless films but the box office just about saved SRK. However, trade analysts pointed out that SRK charges such a high premium that most of his films from 2008 onwards have made profits, but have been rank under-earners when compared to the other Khans.

In fact, for the first time in ages, SRK finds his name missing from the list of the top five top grossers:

1. PK (2014): Rs735 crore
2. Bajrangi Bhaijaan(2015): Rs626 crore
3. Baahubali: The Beginning (2015): Rs600 crore
4. Dhoom 3 (2013): Rs536 crore
5  Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015): Rs431 crore

Salman Khan realised what his core competency was and has supersized it. In the 2010s, his blockbusters outweigh his misses.

Aamir Khan gave his first “all-time blockbuster” with Ghajini (2008). He bettered that with 3 Idiots (2009). He surpassed that with Dhoom 3(2013). And as if that hat-trick wasn’t enough, he went past even that with PK (2014).

And now let’s come to Dilwale. One trade analyst has called it the greatest disaster of all time! How can a movie which has a worldwide gross of Rs300 crore be called that? Simple. It’s the film distributors, stupid!

(As it is, all Khan films make a profit for the Khans even before they are released. It is all others who are on the tenterhooks.)While it’s still early, the amount of money that distributors all across India will lose combined could be in the range of Rs50-60 crores and that’s a brand new record for Bollywood.

Twitter is full of Dilwale disaster stories of distributors absconding, suffering heart attacks and newbies having their life savings wiped out. One multiplex claimed to have sold two tickets in an entire day. Some folks of Twitter had put booking site screenshots of half-empty cinema halls on the opening weekend itself! The ultimate insult was that rival Bajirao Mastani has been declared a blockbuster and something that has totally thrashed Dilwale.

The thing is that Dilwale is not a one-off movie as has been discussed above. If Chak De! India had capped a brilliant 15 years for SRK, Dilwale has merely bombed after a mediocre eight years.

The sad part is that even the Kajol-SRK chemistry seems dead. Their first five films were blockbusters: Baazigar (1993), Karan Arjun (1995), DDLJ (1995), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001).

Their last two movies (My Name Is Khan and Dilwale) have lost money for the distributors.

The Filmfare Awards also reflect this slide. From 1992-2007, SRK won seven Filmfare Awards for Best Actor along with one for Best Villain and a few critics’ awards. Between 2008 and 2015, he has won just one Filmfare award!

Earlier, SRK used to stay away from controversies, but now he is falling into one after the other – the Wankhede Stadium brawl, the Shirish Kunder slap, the Farah Khan splitairport checks, link-ups with Priyanka Chopra, et al.

The intolerance remark was merely his latest and may have severely affected Dilwale’s box office collections.

By 1997, Amitabh had milked his brand dry and after Mrityudaata, one prominent headline declared him dead. While you may argue that Amitabh is still alive and kicking in 2016 and that was way off mark, the headline was in a way right.

At that time, you could see the wrinkles on Bachchan’s face and it was humiliating for a fan to see him attempt to play someone 20 years younger. That Bachchan avatar did indeed die.

In 2000, he was reborn as a grand and graceful old man with a salt and pepper look on the TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati. It is that avatar which is flourishing till this present-day.

Dilwale is SRK’s Mrityudaata. By 2015, SRK too has milked his brand dry and you cringe when you see this haggard face trying to play someone 20 years younger than himself, a royal romantic hero that he once was in an era far, far away.

Here’s a little confession: I was a diehard SRK fan from 1992 to 2007, but I have felt disconnected with him after that. Here’s a wish that he too (like Bachchan) will reinvent himself and stay relevant in the decades to come.

Otherwise, it will be ‘Dilwale SRK ko le gaye khadde main’ (Dilwale took SRK to the ditch)!

    . Since 2008 SRK has only one failure Billu and one average Ra. one.
    All other movies were hits/superhits. Amir and Salman became superstars
    after 2010. SRK are in super stardom since 1998. SRK’s
    success graph never went down, always up, but now straight. Mr. Sunil Rajguru , as you have mentioned names of 5
    blockbusters including Bahubali, now you should write a blog mentioning
    the names of flops of the flop season of Salman and co. SRK was only
    hitting sixes from 1993 – 2007. That was the flop season of many others like
    amir, Akshay, Ajay and many. After Salman khan broke up with Aish in
    2001, his flop season started, continues upto 2009. When SRK was hitting sixes,
    they were taking sinles/twos. Its not SRK’s fault. And now SRK for last 4 years
    or so playing test cricket , people like you saying SRK is over. You not
    deserve to be a SRK fan. Since, bollywood started, we got three real
    Superstars. Rajesh Khanna, BigB and SRK, all three belongs to nonfilmy
    background. Good to see Amir and Salman joins them and become superstars.

    And Dilwale is certainly not Mrityudata. Mrityudata was a
    real flop. Dilwale is a big hit oversees , semi hit in India. S The only thing I agree with you is SRK-Kajol wasted in
    Dilwale. People have rights to criticize any movies as the buy
    tickets to watch the movies but All the critics those earn
    money by give rating to films, SAALO, before give ratings ask yourseif,
    can you make a commercial movie like these.Recommend

  • Shastri

    Writer has over-analysed the situation.

    SRK and Rohit Shetty made a bad movie. Casting was wrong and the over-emphasis on a wrongly cast Varun Dhawan and Kriti did not help either.

    Perhaps SRK and Rohit should look for better scripts.

    On other hand BajiRao was a well-made movie. Intact its earnings would probably have been much more had the director not released it with Dilwale. Who knows if that movie was released a week earlier probably would have made 30% more profits. Considering that it is an expensive movie with lavish sets and dressings, the profits are not as high. On other hand Dilwale is a cheaply made movie and producers probably minted money.Recommend

    hahahaha The title of this news itself is the BIGGEST joke ever!

    you are just a SRK hater nothing else. You used to be FAN of SRK? oh please! I was HIS FAN, I AM HIS FAN and I WILL BE HIS FAN for forever!

    AND WHAT? career officially over?! my foot! His latest movie Dilwale faced the 1 month long intentional negativity, the planned protest, clash with other movie still….its earning is 360+ worldwide and still running! Broke record in Pakistan, UAE, Malaysia…etc. His not so strong movie earning 360+ worldwide….is according to you the end of this career?

    OMG then what will happen to other actors in Bollywood who cant even earn 100cr?

    And the controversy? Just tell me the name of an actor who never faced controversy! For example Salman Khan..who killed someone..his case was running for many many years and now declared innocent, though each and everybody knows what the truth is!

    Shah Rukh Khan is in TOP for more than 23 years now. Dilwale is his 13 continued HIT and will take over that with FAN and Raees for sure.

    Forbes declared him as the most Popular Actor in the World as well as He is in TOP in their new issue! According to you, its his worst time? Then just imagine what is his BEST! 1000cr may be..according to you.

    And in case of actor Shah Rukh Khan, I hope you have seen FAN and Raees Trailer, or may be you have not as you have written this article without knowing anything and just to increase the negative impression of him.
    . and ya NOBODY CAN DRAG HIM DOWN…do whatever you want to do! :)Recommend

    (SRK’s career is now officially over) is a game played for over 2 decades,but he is king khan and u see still he is ruling Indian film industry were u would be out of business if u deliver 2 or 3 flops in a row no body will remember or care u in the next film u do.and the whole dilwale episode with bajirao mastani,yes the film is little bit offbeat,childish and doesn’t suit his coming back with kajol but should have selected a good story line and commerce will automatically come in line as he says in his interviews do good movies and money will follow.but this time around his name itself bought that collection to the movie (dilwale) the story,script,actors nothing was in place.

    so as die hard fan i suggest maintain his brand name,select very good scripts,and do some logical films.
    as of now he king in entertainment business.Recommend

  • http://www.unitedmigration.com Tanjil Kamal

    The movie name is Dilwale but who is Dilwale??? Sharuk lives in India but his heart is in Pakistan as he has been accused Paki Agent by the BJP leaders. Sharuk has been also under suspect for money laundering by India police, so he may not be Dilwale rather Mr Billwale, who is taking all the wealth to abroad from India by making cheap movies to make Mannat like Jannat overseas and let his fans remain outside Galaxy theater making 50 Rupees a day by selling tickets just as like Sharuk’s early career time. Sharuk & Kajol both become & looks too old and should not act in this type of cheap romeo class movie as they are no more in DDLJ age or time!!! Also Are we all audience Dilwale or Chillwale?? Just to be entertain our lust we are risking other people life in terrible danger and even not bothering to pay them the right amount of money by paying Mr Billwale King Khan 35cr Ruppes per film, who takes no life in danger stunts and claim himself Dilwale of India with the help of poor stuntmen. It is just like making poor people hostage with their life to earn livelihood and all we enjoy when the fruit emerges. Damn shit truth video I have seen from Youtube (Dilwale – Heart behind Action) and my cordially Thanks to Sir Mr Ruined Shitty, we never regard for this kind cheap falsify profession and so even Fassale, Kattwale, Marlwale or Petwale Never Going To See That Ruined Shitty’s Dilwale. Many top countries have now banned thin figure models from any modeling jobs, so why no law is there by which movie heroes will be banned to do any action movies, if they can’t take stunt by own or if hire stuntmen then will be liable to pay half of their earnings. I request all audience that if you buy the ticket to watch Dilwale then must ensure that most of the money is going to the stuntmen not to all those who can command only by keeping himself safe behind the camera or can pretend himself to be Dilwale and can not take any stunt of even compare to a Chichkawale….!!!!!!!Recommend

  • abhi

    very well written blog. The quality of SRK is going down with each new release. Om Shanti Om was last SRK movie that I saw in theater and made sure that I don’t waste money on his movies anymore.Recommend

  • Azmat Ali

    SRK has been a mediocre actor, at best, always. With an extremely limited array of expressions and looks, this guy could only act in a very narrow field of expression. And even within that range, he was stunted, at best. With 100s of movies under their belt, everyone will produce a few shining examples of craft.
    Box Office success is never a reflection of artistry or talent. It is a reflection of entertainment provided. In that context, SRK may be a great entertainer, to those huge masses who like that genre of entertainment, but he was never an actor’s actor. Aamir Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Amitabh are / were great actors indeed. They had presence, they adapt to their roles, and provided a wide variety of look and feel in their roles. SRK could only dream of such.
    Having said that, I’ll switch places with SRK in less than a second, given that opportunity. With limited talent and looks at his disposal, that man made a mountain of himself, both in terms of fame as well as fortune.Recommend

Its true after 2008 SRK faced a tough fight, but he never took any SAHARA of south film, just like the other did. On 2009 salman khan’s career could have been over if he not took SAHARA of a south film remake named Wanted. Originality can be risky. some will like, some not. Class is permanent.

    Discussion can not be done with ifs and buts or probables… discuss with facts and reality… and the whole blog is a question mark of the ability of the blogger. yes, since 2008, 2-3 SRK movies were not up to the mark but none of those were south film remakes, Salman and co. worked in more than 3 south films remakes to find and carry a momentum on their career, those were not only remakes, those were copy and paste without showing any creativity. Its true after 2008 SRK faced a tough fight, but he never took any support or shelter of any south film script, just like the others did. On 2009 salman khan’s career could have been over if he not took support of a south film remake named Wanted. Mr. Blogger,your blog never would be a non sense if you would prepared yourself with proper knowledge and evidence. Originality can be risky. some will like, few will not. Class is permanent.

    Thats not a logical person speaking. Thats the voice of a blinded fan. Everytime someone tries to say something logical these SRK bhakts come running to defend their deity. The quality of a film cannot be decided by the amount of money it earns. It’s just the fame and fans he has achieved in his career that are making his movies hit, without even thinking if the film is worth it. Yes SRK can be called the Badshah because he used to do great films and he is a great actor. But looking at his films now, no one can deny he has lost his charm. Its difficult to believe that an actor of SRK’s stature can do such shitty films. Saying that his career is over would be a stretch, but no doubt the quality of his film has reached a new low.

    And an actor who hasn’t faced controversy ? Well in today’s time, Akshay Kumar is one such actor who hasn’t faced any controversy. There was one about him and Priyanka dating some 10 years back, but that was just media hype and wasn’t true. Everyone knows that. If you think about it, Akshay is someone who deserves far more respect than SRK. Obviously you are a blind SRK fan and won’t pay heed to this.

    And yes looking at Fan’s trailer one can say it could be his return to form. Can’t say anything about Raees yet

    Edit- Completely forgot about Happy New Year. Forget Dilwale, Jab Tak Hai Jaan or Chennai Express which are obviously bad movies, Happy New Year crosses all limits. After I watched that movie, I literally stopped taking any sort of interest in Bollywood. What a bag of crap that film was ! I wish I could remove it from my memory. Haven’t seen a film that bad in recent times.

    Sorry to break it to you but SRK is not The SRK that he used to be.Recommend

    Shah Rukh Khan is not only the King of Bollywood but the King of Hearts & any of his movie which does not perform well at box office can’t reduce the Love of his Fans. Actors come & go but the Biggest thing is to live in Hearts of People not only in movies. He has millions & trillions of fans across the Globe & no one can deny this fact. Personally, I love him not only because of his Movies, Acting & Style (which is obvious) but also because he is a Family-oriented man, Loving Husband, Caring Brother & a Doting Father.Recommend

    its not over yet..but if next two flops then he will be out of reach to top 2 or top 3 and then eventual knockout will start. I agree that he did biggest mistakes by doing RA one, dilwale, happy new year. all these comes together and added to this were controversies. He rejected 3 idiots, munnabhai, robot that is insane.Recommend
