If someone had asked me the question, “Who is the most successful movie star in the world?” I might have said Angelina Jolie, Hollywood’s highest paid actress. Or I might have said Tom Cruise, an actor and producer. It would never have crossed my mind that the most successful movie star in the world is not an American or a Brit. In reality, the most successful movie star in the world is Indian: Shah Rukh Khan. Mr. Khan is an Indian film actor, producer and television personality. In India, they call him the “King of Bollywood” or “King Khan.” He has made more than 80 Bollywood films and has a following in Asia and in the Indian diaspora around the world. If this reveals anything about me, it reveals my lack of international exposure and my ethnocentric perspective of movie stars.
