Many of Shah Rukh Khan's films are loved globally and this has made him an extremely popular name among audiences around the world, due to which he got the opportunity to represent his country and many of his films at many prestigious film festivals around the world.

Some of his most acclaimed and breakout films in his more than 30-year run in Indian cinema have been the romantic thriller Baazigar (1993), in which Khan played a murderous but sympathetic anti-hero on a quest for revenge. A few years later, he was elevated to superstar status with a romantic drama, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995) and a love story across timelines, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998). At the same time, the enormity of this newfound fame did not stop Khan from playing roles that were different and way ahead of their time, such as Rahul in the Yash Chopra-directed romantic psychological thriller Darr (1993), a journalist who falls in love with a terrorist in the epic Dil Se... (1998) by Mani Ratnam. Over the next two decades, Khan's career would include high-profile collaborations with some of India's most prominent directors and stars, earning him tremendous international recognition as well. Khan was awarded the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2007 and the Legion d'Honneur by the French government in 2014. Shah Rukh Khan's recent releases include three films released in 2023, Pathan (2023), Jawaan (2023), and Donkey (2023), all of which were huge commercial successes and received immense appreciation from global audiences. Jawaan (2023), produced by Khan's own production house Red Chillies Entertainment, has entered the history books as the highest-grossing Hindi film of all time, confirming the actor's status as one of the most beloved Indian stars of his generation.

Khan is a king who has never lost touch with his audience. This bold and daring artist has always been willing to challenge himself while staying true to what his fans around the world expect from his films. A true ‘people’s hero’, refined and grounded, Shah Rukh Khan is a legend of our times.”
