On a number of occasions, we’ve heard Shah Rukh Khan saying how his fans keep complaining him of doing same or similar kind of roles over the years. The King of Romance in his defence questions how Raees is similar to Don or Swades being same as Chak De India! But if we take a closer look at the 51-year-old actor’s upcoming film, Jab Harry Met Sejal, a romantic-drama directed by Imtiaz Ali, Shah Rukh Khan will himself agree to be guilty of repeating himself. Jab Harry Met Sejal can be called predictable as the story once again has King Khan fall in love with another man’s fiancée. This time around his lady love is the gorgeous Anushka Sharma. From Kajol in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Preity Zinta in Veer-Zaara to Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express, the handsome romantic hero has swept the engaged girls off their sweet. Here’s a list of Box Office Blockbuster films with a little predictable element where Shah Rukh Khan gets his love who was someone else’s bride-to-be. SRK-DJ Diplo in Phurrr Song from Jab Harry Met Sejal: 7 Times Bollywood Was Mesmerized By International Musicians.
1. Anushka Sharma in Jab Harry Met Sejal
When Jab Harry Met Sejal mini-trailers launched, one of them caught everyone’s attention. The leading lady named Sejal played by Anushka Sharma declares to have lost her engagement ring given by her fiancé on the trip to Harry (Shah Rukh). In another video, she is seen saying that she is not of the type who leaves their fiancés to elope with a tourist guide. (Ouch!). But the trailers and songs have displayed the two already falling in love with each other and why not. Resisting the charm of Shah Rukh Khan is impossible.

2. Preity Zinta in Veer-Zaara
The 2004 romantic film helmed by the legendary director, Yash Chopra saw Preity Zinta breaking off her nikah (marriage) with fiancé for Shah Rukh Khan. The intense love story between an Indian Air Force pilot, Squadron Leader, Veer Pratap Singh (Shah Rukh) and a bubbly, feisty Pakistani girl, Zaara (Preity) is quite fresh in fans’ minds. An already engaged Zaara to Manoj Bajpayee’s character falls madly in love with Veer when she visits India and thus begins an iconic romantic tale.
3. Kajol in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
DDLJ is touted to be the baap of all Bollywood love stories. And in this movie, Shah Rukh Khan steals the heart of a girl who was engaged to her father’s best friend’s son in their childhood. The iconic pair of Raj and Simran, played by SRK and Kajol face several obstacles, such as Simran’s grumpy orthodox father and her obnoxious, butthead fiancé played by Parmeet Sethi. Nevertheless, Raj manages to win his dulhania against all odds because he is Shah Rukh Khan.
4. Mahima Chaudhry in Pardes
The 1997 musical drama, Pardes directed by Subhash Ghai saw Shah Rukh Khan in the role of a wingman, Arjun to a brat NRI named Rajiv (Apurva Agnihotri) who is getting married to small-town simpleton named Ganga (Mahima Chaudhry). Well, obviously there are too many clashes of cultures and traditions which lead Ganga to realize her love to a more desi boy, Shah Rukh Khan. In the end, SRK gets the girl and lives happily ever after.
5. Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are tagged as the golden pair of Bollywood. They have created magic on the silver screen on several times, and it totally makes sense if King Khan stole her away from another man. In Karan Johar’s directorial debut, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Shah Rukh makes a puppy face, emotionally blackmails by bringing in his eight-year-old daughter to break Kajol’s engagement and subsequent wedding with Salman Khan. Instead, he gets married to her and lives happily after.
6. Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express
Deepika Padukone as Meena is running away from a forced marriage to Tangaballi (Nikitin Dheer) which her appa has fixed. Enter Shah Rukh Khan’s character, Rahul (Naam Toh Suna Hi Hoga)! A lot of banters, misunderstanding, massy jokes, action, Badshah of Bollywood beats his competition in the climax to win his love’s hand. With this accomplishment, he once again breaks off the marriage plans of a girl’s decided by her parent.
7. Madhuri Dixit in Dil To Pagal Hai
Shah Rukh Khan, the quintessential lover boy of a Yash Chopra-directed film, saw him woo an already-engaged Maya in Dil To Pagal Hai. Maya played by Madhuri Dixit is certain to get married to his childhood best friend (Akshay Kumar) – but they never get married. Why? Because the film had Shah Rukh Khan! According to XYZ scientific research, if the movie has SRK in a lover boy role, he gets his dream girl.
8. Rani Mukerji in Chalte Chalte
Shah Rukh Khan was so persistent in breaking his love’s engagement that he followed her all the way to Greece, from India, obviously. In Aziz Mirza’s Chalte Chalte, Rani Mukerji plays the role of Priya who is wealthy and engaged to a man of same class. But then she meets Raj (SRK) in an accident, then meets on several times including his chase to Greece after which she finally realizes to be in love with him. We told you about the XYZ scientific research about Shah Rukh Khan and his love for other’s fiancées. Yes, that happens in this very movie as well.
A special mention to Shah Rukh Khan in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, where a married him meets a much-married Maya played Rani Mukerji and carried out an extra-marital affair. He makes sure he gets his love by the end of the film by ensuring all twists and turns. Well, let’s not blame Shah Rukh Khan, if every actress ends up with him. Teen or old aunties, single or married, and of course, the much-engaged, every girl loves Shah Rukh Khan, and it is ideal for the leading ladies to end up with him.
