I could have added more but I think it's enough, Shah Rukh Khan never beat the drums of his charity work. He, in an interview with 'Guardian' was Quoted as Saying "I follow Quran which says if you do charity for a reason, it's not a charity".He, in an interview with CNN, said "My friends advice me to have Photoraphs whole doing charity but i don't believe in it".//It's Really important to highlight because People think he's selfish and greedy.

No one can achieve what he has achieved in the last 20 years.He started at zero and reached at top.He was a common man came from a poor background with no parents and one mentally unstable Sister to be taken care of.He achieved everything through dedication and hard work.

He fell in love with a non-Muslim girl and married her without converting her religion.He hasn't even forced his religion into his childrens either and gave them the right to choose their religion once they get matured.

He is the real Indian,Secular and Patriotic Badshah of Bollywood-Shah Rukh Khan.
== Shah Rukh Khan - The Pride of India==
