This book is the best window into Shah Rukh Khan’s inner world and soul. Mushtaq, being a friend of the family, is the best artist for this family portrait portrayal. It’s almost like having Shah Rukh Khan over for coffee.’ -- KARAN JOHAR ‘Compelling. A story you need to read if you feel the need to be inspired.’ --TABU ‘This book catches Shah Rukh Khan in his personal and professional space with versatile ease.’ --SUBHASH GHAI ‘A book that I could not keep down. Worthy of many reads!!!’ --FARAH KHAN ‘It’s not a book...it unfolds like a movie.’ -- ASHUTOSH GOWARIKAR ‘It’s a beautifully crafted book. It’s very difficult to catch the radiance of a man and star like Shah Rukh Khan. Mushtaq Shiekh not only manages it but also shocks you by adding further value.’ -- SANTOSH SIVAN ‘When a writer of the caliber of Mushtaq is writing a book about me, then I presume the book I am writing can wait.’ -- SHAH RUKH KHAN Mushtaq Shiekh cut his teeth on film journalism and went on to become a writer of movies. He brings a journalist’s nose for facts and a screenwriter’s flair for drama to Shah Rukh Can. So much has been written about Shah Rukh Khan (at the time of going to press, a Google search shows up 2.1 million results in 0.28 seconds). What makes this book special is that a lot of the material (words and pictures) is stuff that we haven’t seen before. There are some things even Google’s search algorithms cannot find. But Mushtaq Shiekh can. Mushtaq has known Shah Rukh for nearly as long as the rest of the world has. But unlike the rest of the world, Mushtaq has put in guest appearances in Shah Rukh’s films (Main Hoon Na, 2004 and Om Shanti Om, 2007), co-written the screenplay for Om Shanti Om and is more family than guest in the Khan’s inner circle. If Shah Rukh’s CDs line your music library (not to mention your iPod playlists) and his DVDs line your movie library, then your bookshelf is incomplete without a copy of Shah Rukh Can.
