Remember some of the most endearing gifts given by Shah Rukh Khan to his leading ladies that have made on-screen proposals quite memorable? Check out how the King of Romance makes a lasting impression on his heroines:

1. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995)

The Swiss cowbell became central to Raj and Simran’s love story that starts on a trip across Europe and ends in Punjab. 

2. Om Shanti Om (2007)

Shah Rukh and Deepika see themselves dancing in a snow globe as they fall in love. The show piece symbolised the spiritual connection between Om and Shanti that transcended from one lifetime into another.

3. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)

‘Pyar Dosti Hai’. That’s what Rahul from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) believed and what better way to symbolise dosti than a friendship band! One can’t deny that the film did make the cheesy band quite the thing on every college campus. And back in the day it was a fresh change from red roses!

4. Devdas (2002)

This playful scene between SRK and Aishwarya in Devdas (2002) is a memorable one. He gifts her a gold bangle but can’t figure out how to slide it onto her wrist. She unlocks it and they laugh about it. The moment comes back to haunt them later in the film after Paro marries someone else.

5. Veer-Zaara (2004)

When an anklet can stand the test of time, love surely can too. Veer meets Zara after 22 long years and still has her anklet from their younger days in his pocket. Zara of course has been walking around with just one anklet all these years. Uff, too mushy! But SRK and Preity played up the fabulous cross border love story with great style in Veer Zara (2004).
