King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan.

Anupama Chopra



Here is the astonishing true story of Bollywood, a sweeping portrait about a country finding its identity, a movie industry that changed the face of India and one man's struggle to become a star. Shah Rukh Khan's larger than life tale takes us through the colourful and idiosyncratic Bollywood movie industry, where fantastic dreams and outrageous obsessions share the spotlight with extortion, murder and corruption.

Shah Rukh Khan broke into the $1.5 billion business despite the fact that it has always been controlled by a handful of legendary film families and sometimes funded by black market money. As a Muslim in a Hindu majority nation, exulting in classic Indian cultural values, Shah Rukh Khan has come to embody the aspirations and contradictions of a complicated culture tumbling headlong into US-style capitalism. His story views the greater Indian story and the underbelly of the culture of Bollywood.
