SRK started gaining renown in his film career as the bad guy in movies like Baazigar and Darr. After a couple years of playing villainous roles, he moved into more romantic features for the next decade or so, starring in films such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Devdas.

SRK continued to branch out into different genres with dramas (My Name is Khan), comedies (Dilwale), and action films (like the upcoming Pathaan). He's one of the most winning actors in Bollywood with 117 award nominations and 109 wins, including 14 Filmfare Awards.
