We're all obsessed with Shah Rukh Khan and his success. From being a commoner to becoming one the biggest stars the world has ever seen, SRK has wayyy too many stories of struggle, fame, school days and his life that are known to us.

So we've comprised a series of never heard before, heart-warming stories from his life that'll make you fall in love with him, a bit more than you already do.

1. SRK admits to being filmy off screen and in daily life too. His friend from Delhi, Benny Thomas, who came with him to Bombay during his struggling days narrates an incident where Shah Rukh Khan, standing on Marine Drive, in the backdrop of the setting sun, said 'I'll rule this city one day,' totally unaware that it would turn into reality pretty soon.

3. SRK once turned down a lucrative movie deal that required his make-up man to be replaced by someone else. Why you ask? He considered his make-up man, Ravi, his family.

4. In an old interview SRK shared an incident from his school days. He said that he used to pretend having epileptic attacks to bunk classes. His acting was SO realistic that the teachers allowed his friends to take him home and let him take rest. What happened after that showed his squad's mischievous side even more – instead of escaping immediately, one of his friends went back to the class and asked for the teacher's leather shoes as making an epileptic person during an attack smell leather is considered a remedy. Poor teacher had to walk and spend the day with just one shoe on.
