From ‘Jo bhi chahu vo mai pau’ to ‘Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho ... to puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai’, Shah Rukh Khan has made us believe that your hard work and universe go hand-in-hand to make you achieve what you deserve. Coming from a middle-class family and becoming the most successful actor the world has seen, SRK’s journey from rag to riches is an inspiration. From having nothing to ruling the world and having everything that he wants, SRK has grown with passing time.

Talking about SRK’s luxurious car collection, on January 29, 2021, Shah Rukh Khan and AbRam Khan were spotted at their airport from a distance when they had come to drop off Suhana Khan as she had headed back to her college in New York. While it was an adorable moment to see Shah Rukh hugging Suhana goodbye and had walked her till the entrance gate, it was his swanky red convertible car worth Rs 25 lakh that had grabbed everyone’s attention. According to the Wealth-X’s Hollywood and Bollywood Rich List, Shah Rukh Khan is the second richest actor in the world with a net worth of $600 million.
Shah Rukh Khan owns many expensive and luxurious vehicles, but did you know that his first car was a gift for him? Yes, when SRK was young, his first car experience was with a Maruti Omni van and it was gifted to him by his late mother. According to ETimes, for Shah Rukh, his first car, Maruti Omni was a special one for him as it was gifted to him by his mother. The van priced around Rs 2.75- 3.06 lakh as recorded last. While, it is unknown if SRK still has his old car with him or not, but we would sure love to know more about his reaction.
Well, SRK might have everything in his life, but he still craves for the love of his parents. In 2018, Shah Rukh Khan had spoken about how losing his parents was a ‘hichki’ moment and his decision to overcome this hiccup of his life by letting acting fill it up. In an interview with Rani Mukerji, Shah Rukh had said, “My greatest ‘Hichki moment’ is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father passed away and 26 when my mother passed away. It was very sad for us. The empty house without my parents used to come to bite us (my sister and me). The loneliness, pain and sadness of the loss of both my parents, could have been overwhelming enough to take over my life wholly. I decided to overcome this Hichki moment by letting acting fill up my entire life. My parents went away suddenly. We got to know they had cancer and within two and a half months, they were gone. I didn’t know what to do." (Recommended Read: Shah Rukh Khan's Daughter, Suhana Khan Looks Exactly Like Him And This Photo Collage Is A Proof)
When Shah Rukh Khan had appeared on David Letterman’s famous talk show, My Next Guest With David Letterman, he had revealed that he had said mean things to his mother when she was in the hospital in her end days. He had said, "So my mom was in the ICU and I thought that if I give her trouble then she will be extremely dissatisfied. So I would sit next to her bed and say things like.. I am going to be extremely mean to my eldest sister. I will not get her married, I'll not work, I'll start drinking and said all these bad things hoping that she will be on her way to this nirvana place, to her Godly abode, happy and then she'll be like Oh God this boy I still have to worry about this...(all laugh)...but it didn't work."
