So, SRK turned 50, and it became a trending hashtag. And why not? He is a heartthrob and every girl’s dream. Every blog, every newspaper, and every portal is dishing out their portrayal of King Khan, so we thought, why not us too? But, but, but, we would like to do it in a way tad different from the others.
After all, it is the Baadshah of Bollywood, so why should he get the same old and boring tribute over and over again. Agree? So, let us get on and watch reel and real mesh together, when we remind you, how growing up, we reimagined some perfectly normal moments of our lives, SRK style, haath phaila ke!
Well, this was before the romance began, but it sure scared the hell out of girls back then, when someone stuttered. K…K…K…Kiran!
Pyaar Dosti Hai, Love Is Friendship
For some insane moments, all of us tomboyish gals actually looked at our best guy pal and thought; “Is he the one?”
The Makeover Effect
Trust us, when we were grown up and convincing ourselves that we are so over that goofy slapstick romance, we were secretly hoping our childhood crush to come and fall in love with the new, makeover”ed” us. Much like Rahul meeting Anjali after 8 years.
The Rain Dance
Ok, one more “kuch kuch hota hai” moment we wanted to come true. There was a reason we wanted to hang around our crush when it rained. You never know when the piano starts!
Valentine’s Day. 12.00 a.m.
We really fell for this one and stayed awake just so that someone would walk by with some indication of being our true love. Sigh! But we could only see the watchman.
When We Took Up Music Lessons
SRK’s character of the lovable music teacher Raj Aryan in Mohabbatein to convince us of it. How we wanted this cute cupid in our lives.
When A New Neighbour Moved In
We wanted him to be as charming as Aman, and sing “Pretty Woman” to the chashmish inside us.
When We Were New to A College/Office
Remember how (Major, Oops! A Secret) Ram saw Miss Chandani for the first time and sang for her with his arms open. Sigh! What we would have done to get such a welcome.
When Even the Bookstore Guys Looked Like a Crush Possibility
After watching a scene in Swades, where Mohan takes his friend’s place and bills the books for Gita, for a moment we were insane enough to consider this possibility too.
When We Talked, and Over-Talked, and Laughed
We actually had the Anjali of K3G inside us, waiting for our own Rahul to get entranced by our meaningless less cute overload of nonsense, and kiss us to be silent.
When Army Officers Were Hotter
Trust Major Samar Anand, with his brooding attitude, secret diary, tough stubble, and pain in his heart, to give us butterflies in our stomach. And every time we see a hot hunk in uniform, we can’t help but dream of a romantic sequence.
A…..and When The Train Starts Moving
And once more:
In slow motion. We all have imagined the mandolin playing, and a slow motion happening in the background, with a Raj giving his hand to us from the train, to make us keep pace and catch up,
Kyon ki Bade Bade Deshon Mein, Aisi Choti Choti Baatein Hoti Rehti Hain, Senorita!
This Megastar sure added a swag to our lives. Thank you SRK, for all our daydreaming is dedicated to you. We would not have thought of all the above scenarios, had it not been your super mushy movies. Have more in mind? Do tell us in the comments below.
