Even if you’ve been living under a rock, this is one name you can’t not be familiar with! The ‘King of Bollywood’ has been ruling hearts since the early nineties, making his silver screen debut with the Rishi Kapoor-starrer Deewana in 1992. Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) also won the Filmfare Best Male Debut Award for this film.

Over the last 20 years, SRK has played a gamut of roles – from the anti-hero in movies like Baazigar (1993), the obsessive lover in films like Devdas (2002) to more unconventional roles like that of Dr Jehangir Khan, a psychologist, in Dear Zindagi (2016).

Apart from his career in Bollywood, ‘King Khan’ also co-owns the popular IPL cricket team franchise representing the city of Kolkata – Kolkata Knight Riders. SRK turns 52 on 2 November.

Yes, history buffs, we have something for you too!

Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France before the French Revolution, was born on this day in 1755. While she was initially popular among her people as the wife of King Louis XVI, she was later accused of being promiscuous, which made her fall from grace.

She was also accused of supporting the enemies of France, particularly the Austrians, being a native of the country.

On 14 October 1793, the last Queen of France was convicted of treason and died by the guillotine.
