Shahrukh Khan's last release, Chennai Express was a monster hit and it further strengthened the actor's position as the top superstar in Bollywood. SRK's earlier hit films like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Pardes and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham helped him establish a huge fan following in the overseas market.

Khan's next film will be Happy New Year which is directed by Farah Khan and co-stars Deepika Padukone. The film is expected to release on October 23, 2014.
