We met the man himself on his big day – and he charmed us, as he always does! Shah Rukh Khan kept his date with the media on his birthday on November 2 at his iconic bungalow Mannat in Bandra, Mumbai. We at India.com presented the Bollywood superstar with a specially made chocolate cake, and he graciously took it in his hands and posed for pictures as he cut through it with a knife!

So, was Shah Rukh Khan in a good mood on his birthday? Yes, he was. But in a more mature kind of way – now that he has turned 49. Shah Rukh looked relaxed and was a host at ease, as he chatted with the media and maintained his calm when posed with questions of all kinds. He is an ace at it now, on the verge of half a century in his life and 25 years in Bollywood.
Shah Rukh was not that witty this year, and did look a bit fatigued – or maybe it was just the sweltering temperature of Mumbai on the threshold of winter. He looked fit as a fiddle in a black tee, with his Happy New Year eight-pack abs intact we presume.
Shah Rukh left the media bewitched when he said that the only regular birthday celebration he has every year is the annual interaction with journalists in his home – some of the journalists who are his old friends and many newer ones.

SRK even obliged fans by wearing T-shirts gifted by them and signing autographs. And in his trademark style, he waved out the crowd atop the guarded gates of Mannat to thousands waiting in the hot sun. Charm all the way!
Here’s wishing Shah Rukh Khan a happy birthday again, and may he have many more to come.
