Shahrukh Khan studied acting under celebrated Theater Director Barry John at Delhi’s Theater Action Group (TAG). Later on, John said this of SRK, “The credit for the phenomenally successful development and management of Shahrukh’s career goes to the superstar himself”
For his debut Shahrukh started shooting for Lekh Tandon’s television series Dil Dariya. However, as that got delayed he made his acting debut with the 1988 television series, Fauji, playing the leading role of Commando Abhimanyu Rai. This was his claim to fame on the silver screen. He went on to appear in other television serials, such as the 1989 serial, Aziz Mirza’s Circus, which depicted the life of circus performers. The same year, Shahrukh also had a minor role in the made-for-television English-language film – “In Which Annie Gives it Those Ones”, which was based on life at Delhi University and was written by Arundhati Roy. When Khan appeared in those teleserials, people found him to resemble thespian actor Dilip Kumar. This was just the entry that SRK needed.
