When Shah Rukh Khan ruled over hearts with some smashing entry scenes
A unique dual role for SRK playing the teenage obsessed fan Gaurav Chandna of a superstar named Aryan Khanna. The entry scene of Gaurav saw him first with a couple of montages played earlier that showed how he turned the biggest fan of Aryan Khanna. But, carrying those prosthetics for the character of Gaurav and SRK’s first appearance with it had witnessed a huge cheer from his fans who even blew whistles looking at him. Though the overall impact of the movie didn’t remained that positive, but this entry was quite appreciated by everyone.
2/8'Happy New Year'
Another paisa vasool and seeti maar entry scene which saw SRK flaunting his chiseled abs and beefed up look playing a street fighter Chandramohan Manohar Sharma aka Charlie. Directed by Farah Khan, this film yet again saw Shah Rukh in a complete action avatar where you just can’t stop drooling over his look, hot body and action. A sheer delightful treat for his ardent fans out there.
3/8'Main Hoon Na'
Then, debutant director Farah Khan had projected Shah Rukh in a never-seen-before avatar that of a military officer in the movie. By far, this was the first time when SRK was seen doing some kickass action and his entry scene witnessed him shattering glass, firing bullets. In short, it was one full-fledged action sequence. This film had literally changed the minds of his countless admirers who only considered him the ‘King of Romance’ until then.
The first meeting between Devdas and Paro as he returns after a gap of 10 long years is heart-melting. The shot sees the beautiful Paro (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) waiting in her room to see Devdas. As he is making his way towards her room, a Bhavra (insect) starts irritating her. To get rid of him, she takes the help of a cloth sheet which follows the dramatic entry of Devdas. The first expression of SRK looking at Paro and the way this sequence has been shot overall by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, surely makes it to one of the best entries of the superstar in a film.
5/8'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham...'
Every principal character in this Karan Johar directorial had a unique and splendid introduction. But, matching to the grand scale of the film, Shah Rukh’s entry had undoubtedly topped over everyone else. It saw him arriving in a helicopter with the title song ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ being picturised simultaneously which featured Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan and Rani Mukerji. From entering, stepping down from the helicopter to running towards his mansion, this entry scene was completely filled up with emotions and love between a mother and her son. Perhaps, one of SRK’s best introductions ever shot.
It showed him playing a music teacher Raj Aryan Malhotra who is pitted against the character of the strict principal of the Gurukul University, Narayan Shankar (Amitabh Bachchan). His entry was much crucial for the movie as he arrives as the one who is a ‘saviour of love’ in this principled institution. The intro scene sees him giving flowers to the ones who work in Gurukul (not revealing his face). This follows with a melodious tune he plays on his violin and when interrupted by Amitabh Bachchan, he turns back and introduces himself. For his fans, till SRK turned back, it was something they waited with bated breath.
SRK’s first association with the late director Yash Chopra, ‘Darr’ was a turning point in the actor’s career. He played the character of an obsessive lover and his intro aptly showed the traits of his role. It had shown him walking on a parapet terrace with a rose flower in his hand. With each petal breaking down from the flower, the character was wondering whether Kiran (Juhi Chawla) loves him or not. This entry scene from ‘Darr’ certainly made a place.
Shah Rukh Khan’s debut film saw him riding a motorcycle which was followed by song ‘Koi Na Koi Chahiye Pyar Karne Wala’. His innocence and charm stole hearts of many. This entry scene of ‘Deewana’ saw a debutant making his way towards super stardom in near future and therefore it remains very close for all his fans out there.
