Shahrukh Khan, widely regarded as one of the sharpest minds in the industry, hasn’t enjoyed much success as a producer.
So far, he has produced 10 films (including Always Kabhi Kabhi which released today), out of which 4 have done well and the rest have failed to make any impact. Kaal, which he co-produced with Karan Johar, opened well but soon faded away.
Below is a list of Shahrukh Khan Films as a Producer (box office verdict in brackets)
- Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (FLOP)
- Asoka (FLOP)
- Chalte Chalte (HIT)
- Main Hoon Na (HIT)
- Kaal (Average)
- Paheli (FLOP)
- Om Shanti Om (Blockbuster)
- Billu (FLOP)
- My Name Is Khan (HIT)
- Always Kabhi Kabhi (FLOP, most likely)
Note: All films above, except Kaal and Always Kabhi Kabhi, featured SRK in lead or supporting roles.
What do you think is the reason for his not-so-success role as a producer? Lack of script sense or was it the case of some of his failures lacking entertainment value (like Paheli, Asoka, Billu)?
