8 Times Shah Rukh Khan Played Rahul Onscreen

Rahul, naam toh suna hi hoga!! Yeah, you must have… a good 8 times in Shah Rukh Khan’s movies.

It seems Shah Rukh Khan’s favourite screen name has been Rahul. This name brings the image of SRK stretching his arm, smiling that dimpled smile and beckoning you…. aah! didnt that make you go weak in your knees. He has made the name Rahul immortal. His dialogue, ‘Rahul, naam toh suna hi hoga’ became famous in Yash Chopra directed and Madhuri Dixit, Karisma Kapoor, starrer Dil To Pagal Hai. This dialogue was used with a twist in Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express by ‘Rahul, naam to suna hi nahi hoga.’

Here are the 8 times Shah Rukh took on the name Rahul in his movies.

  • Darr : In this movie we see the darker side of Shah Rukh as an obsessed-lover- stalker, Rahul Mehra. His ‘K-k-k-kiran’ terrorised Juhi Chawla and gave us sleepless nights too.


  • Zamaana Deewana  : Though the movie tanked at the box office, Shah Rukh Khan as Rahul Malhotra and Raveena Tandon as Priya rocked as a pair.

  • Dil Toh Pagal Hai : Who can resist when Shah Rukh Khan as Rahul says “aur paas, aur paas, aur paas”!

  • Kuch Kuch Hota Hai : Pyaar dosti hai. Did we know that? But when Shah Rukh  as Rahul Khanna told us that friendship is the most important aspect of love, we believed him.

  • Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega : He made a special appearance in this Salman Khan movie as, yes… Rahul!

  • Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham : Shah Rukh and Kajol come back together as Rahul-Anjali, and their magical chemistry.

  • Chennai Express : In this SRK-Deepika Padukone starrer, we see SRK as Rahul and a twist in dialogue from Dil to Pagal Hai and the famous train scene with Kajol in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
