Actor

Khan — affectionately called King Khan — is one of Indian cinema’s great global romantic stars, winning most popular actor three times at the Central European Bollywood Awards. A thriving actor-producer, he co-produced “Zero,” in 2018 through his VFX house Red Chillies Entertainment, but it underwhelmed. Undeterred, Red Chillies hit big with thriller “Badla” in 2019, and the company has its eight-episode political espionage series “Bard of Blood” currently running on Netflix. Inducted into AMPAS in 2018, Khan has been making his mark for decades: His romance “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge” has been playing nonstop for 24 years, and “Dil Se” was the first Indian film to break into the U.K. top 10. He also co-owns cricket teams Kolkata Knight Riders and Trinbago Knight Riders.
