An adoring father

A Born Superstar
Nobody knew back then that this little one would one day grow up to become a heartthrob of a million hearts!
A mischievous kid
SRK was nicknamed as ‘Mail gadda’ during his school times. Talking about one of the famous incidents in school during an interview, he said, “I was nicknamed Mail gadda, because I used to run very fast, like an express train. Also because my hair used to stand out in front.”
Among his more childhood anecdotes, SRK revealed, “I once had my chemistry teacher convinced to give me good grades by telling her I was like her son. Also, I used to simulate an attack of epilepsy very often. Once, I’d ‘faint’ in the classroom that made the teacher present there to take off the shoes for me to smell. During one instance, when we had a new teacher, I ‘fainted’ and the other kids had this new teacher convinced that if he didn’t give me the suede shoes he was wearing, I’d die. This incident made the teacher roam barefoot for the rest of the day.”
One Two Cha Cha
The way he escorts his dance moves makes our heartbeats zillion times. Those are the steps that make us think of the time when we don’t want to do anything but dance like there’s no tomorrow.
