SRK has given us millions of reasons to cherish, fall in love, and handle heartbreaks like a boss with his movies.

Apart from giving major hits, the actor has made headlines for his alleged affair with co-actor Priyanka Chopra as well as for his controversial statements.

As he is turning 51 today, let us give a throwback to some major controversies faced by him:

1. Shah Rukh's alleged affair with Priyanka Chopra:

It took everyone by surprise when Shah Rukh Khan was linked to Priyanka Chopra. A picture of SRK and Priyanka sparked the rumours when the former went to visit his office at 3 in the morning. After this, rumours started doing the rounds that the two were dating each other. However, SRK chose to remain silent and did not respond to any of these reports.

2. SRK's alleged misbehaviour with Shirish Kunder:

The Badshah allegedly assaulted Farah Khan's husband and filmmaker, Shirish Kunder at Sanjay Dutt's 'Agneepath' success bash. The ugly spat started over Shirish's comment on the failure of SRK's film. However, the truce happened after Shirish and Farah, along with the latter's brother Sajid Khan went to SRK's home, Mannat.

3. Shah Rukh's intolerance comment:

A few months back, Shah Rukh hogged the limelight for his comment on ‘extreme intolerance’ in India at an event. Following his comment, he faced many protests. Although, SRK justified his comment back then saying that his statement was misconstrued. In an interview with Mid-day, the actor was quoted as saying that he talks about something and it is misconstrued and he gets into trouble. He thinks it's a nuisance. He insists that he had never said that India was intolerant.

4. Abusive language:

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, almost three years after the incident of Shah Rukh Khan using abusive language in front of children at Wankhede Stadium, the State Child Rights Commission has directed the Mumbai Police to register an FIR against the actor. The commission has also asked the police to conduct an inquiry into why an FIR was not registered earlier.

5. Shah Rukh's Sex Determination Case:

When SRK and Gauri decided to have a kid through surrogacy, the actor started facing charges of sex determination. And our law prohibits such tests. However, after the investigations all reports were found to be false.

6. Shah Rukh- Salman Spat:

It all started on Katrina Kaif's birthday bash in 2008, it is believed that King Khan made some inappropriate comments about Salman’s ex-flame Aishwarya Rai Bachchan which annoyed him. The duo stopped talking to each other. However, now all is well between the two and they are often spotted together.
