5 Naked Facts ... About Shahrukh Khan

In the last 15 years, the Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has danced and sung through almost 70 gaudy, colorful and greasy films, and with his charming smile has now also conquered women's hearts beyond the Indian borders. The Hindi films stand for kitschy, melodramatic love stories with a happy ending. And Shah Rukh Khan's private life is also scandal-free and harmonious. He has been married for 18 years and maintains the image of a clean man.

Nevertheless, we have found some interesting details about Bollywood's top actors and present them to you in ours 5 naked facts:

The first naked fact: Shahrukh Kahn brings money into the till
Going to the cinema is apparently one of the favorite occupations of Indians, as around 15 million Indians flock to the cinemas every day and wash several rupees into the box office and into the account of Shah Rukh Khan. But the Bollywood star passes some of his income on to the state. He paid 27 million rupees (about 480,000 euros) as income tax in 2007, making him India's second largest taxpayer. This year Shah Rukh Khan even overtook Indian superstar Akshay Kumar and now tops the list of India's largest taxpayers. (stern.de and india-server.com)

The second naked fact: Shahrukh Khan is a pale face
In India, having a dark complexion is frowned upon, dark skin is considered ugly and a social stigma - and so many Indians resort to bleaching creams to lighten their skin tone. That is why Shah Rukh Khan, whose complexion has somehow lightened a few nuances since the beginning of his career, recently started promoting “Fair And Handsome”, India's most successful whitening cream. In the commercial, he hands a dark-skinned young man the bleaching cream and promises him that with regular use he will drastically increase his chances with women. This commitment on the part of Shahrukh Khan is perhaps not the best approach to reduce social stigmata and counteract the ideals of beauty that are oriented towards Western countries and the widespread discrimination that goes with them.

The third naked fact: Shahrukh Khan pulls bare
During his promotional tour for My Name is Khan, Shah Rukh Khan had to undergo a security check with a body scanner at London's Heathrow Airport. According to the Bollywood star, the female employees are said to have printed out the exceptions and held them under his nose to sign. Shah Rukh Khan gave autographs to his admirers, although he was a little ashamed at first as everyone could see exact details on the printouts. The airport management denies the incident and claims that the machine cannot make printouts. (telegraph.co.uk)

The fourth naked fact: Shahrukh Khan is Günter Jauch
In 2007, Shah Rukh Khan succeeded his Bollywood colleague Amitabh Bachchan and took over the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire ?, which is called Kaun Banega Crorepati (Who Wants to Be a Ten Million Millionaire?) And in the film Slumdog Millionaire plays a crucial role. But after a short time Shah Rukh Khan terminated the contract with the responsible broadcaster due to low fees and sued them.

The fifth naked fact: Shahrukh Khan smells good
Once an actor has developed a certain level of awareness and has built up a fan base willing to buy worldwide, pretty much anything can be sold with the name. Shah Rukh Khan got his name to market the perfume “Tiger Eyes”. A French cosmetics company offers the fragrance for women and men under the slogan “Shahrukh Khan's invincible facets captured in a bottle”. (bollyvisa.com)
