Many people often get amazed at how a man with an ordinary personality and acting talent can become a super star in Bollywood and become darling of the people for more than a decade. Success of Shahrukh Khan is a very interesting case study for the people who want to succeed in life or for those businessmen who want to set up money-spinning business.
Many people do believe that Shahrukh Khan is a media created super star which has been presenting him as a king of Bollywood and often comparing him to Amitabh Bachchan, sometimes more successful then him. Actually Shahrukh Khan can not match the acting talent of great Amitabh Bachchan. But still Khan is highly successful and can inspire common people with his traits which made him very successful. If he had not got those traits then neither media nor any big producer would have been able to drag him to super stardom for long. So the man definitely has something in him that made him to remain at the top for so long.
HE HAS A STRONG SELF IMAGE
World famous plastic surgeon and scientist Dr. Maxwell Maltz found that success of a person depends more on the self-image of a person than skill or talent.
Shahrukh Khan is a shining example of this scientific truth. His self-image is as big as Himalayas. Positive self-image boosts his self-confidence. Even if he fails in a role or face criticism inferiority complex or depression never struck him. He simply and very confidently moves into the other chapter of life and comes with a new hit. The best reflection of his strong self-image is a dialogue that he spoke while talking to a journalist: “There are only to big Khans in this world, one is Genghis Khan and other is Shahrukh Khan.”
On his self-comparison with a twentieth century world-conqueror many called him arrogant but it definitely reflects his self-confidence in himself. You may call him lucky that he got such a fantastic self-image from his parents or surroundings.
DISCIPLINE AND HARD WORK
It is almost impossible to achieve anything in life without a strong dose of discipline and hardworm. And Shahrukh gets 10/10 marks here. Directors like him because he reaches on the sets on time, is very cooperative with them, and works very hard on his work. Due to his habit of discipline and hard work he is respected everywhere. He is a shining example of this quotation of Albert Einstein: “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
GOOD PUBLIC RELATIONS
He always maintains good relations in the film industry with his producers, directors, co-stars, other people and his friends and well-wishers. He is polite in talking and nobody has seen him in a vicious mood like so many other stars. He doesn’t show tantrums. He talks less and never criticises others. This is the reason Bollywood people like to work with him.
Shahrukh Khan is definitely having those traits which are essential to succeed in any highly competitive field.
