Shah Rukh Khan aka King Khan is ruling Bollywood and changed the face of the film industry. But we would not have had him if destiny had changed a bit.
Well, did you know that a car crash that happened 60 years ago at India Gate, actually gave SRK to Bollywood.
Yes, you read it right. Shah Rukh Khan’s parents met due to this accident. Here’s how:
Taj Mohammed Khan went for a morning walk one fine day with his cousin around India Gate when they saw a car crashing into a pillar.
The car turned upside down and Khan wasted no time to help the accident victims. Among the victims were 3 girls and their father. One of the girls had lost immense amount of blood and required to undergo transfusion immediately.
When doctors at the hospital inquired about the blood groups of the people present. And luckily, Taj Mohammed’s blood matched with the injured girl – Lateef Fatima Khan.
And this is how Taj Mohammed saved Fatima’s life, but she was facing trouble recollecting last six months of her memories due to excessive blood loss.
It was when Fatima’s father insisted Taj Mohammed to take care of her for the next few weeks that he fell in love with Fatima.
And impressed with his bravery and selflessness, Fatima’s father asked Taj Mohammed to marry one of his daughters. And even though Fatima was already engaged, he offered to marry her.
And the family agreed.
Few years after their wedding, they gave birth to Shah Rukh Khan.
Had Taj Mohammed not gone for his walk that morning, the world might not have got Shah Rukh Khan.
Shah Rukh turned 51 today, and we are so thankful to destiny.
