One of Bollywood’s most disturbing love stories, the movie is basically a masterclass in stalking. Rahul, played by Shahrukh in the movie, who is obsessively in love with Kiran (Juhi Chawla)crosses all boundaries of being creepy and at times simply scary. He stalks her, tries to abduct and marry her forcefully, makes several attempts at killing her fiancee, all to win her heart. Needless to say, this is one instance where it is not a great idea to take romantic inspiration from the king of romance.

Men who think that they made a really romantic gesture by getting making their lady love a breakfast in bed on a Sunday morning should probably take a note from Govinda in Hero No. 1. After falling in love with Karisma Kapoor in Europe, Govinda, who is the son of a rich and equally strict businessman, enters her house as a servant to woo her family members who are, frankly, quite a pain in you know where.
Love Story 2050
Remember a certain poor man’s Hrithik Roshan named Harman Baweja and his ambitious debut in Bollywood? Directed by his father Harry Baweja, in this sci-fi meets Bollywood romance saga Karan (Harman Baweja) and Sia (Priyanka Chopra) are deeply in love and is about to get married is killed in an accident. A shattered Karan uses a time machine to time travel in 2050 AD to win her back and here we have boyfriends who cancel dates because there has been a sudden rain and the girlfriend’s place is too far.

There is something about Yash Chopra’s brand of romance that makes you believe in the magic of it. In this classic romantic saga Veer (Shahrukh Khan) an officer of Indian Air Force falls in love with Zaara (Preity Zinta) a girl from Pakistan visiting India to immerse the ‘asthiya’ of her ‘biji’ who left India during partition. In a turn of events, Veer goes to Pakistan to finally profess his love for her and is mistaken by Pakistani government to be an Indian spy. The only person who could vouch for his real identity is Zaara, but since Veer thinks she is married to Raza (Manoj Bajpayee) he silently accepts his fate and remains in prison for 22 years so that Zaara’s dignity is not tainted.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
While some men refuse to wear a shirt according to their spouse’s choice, in this Shahrukh-Anushka starrer Surinder Sahni (Shahrukh) goes through a completely whacky makeover to win the heart of his lady love. He sheds his boring avatar and meets Tani as Raj in a cool and quirky personality. Given how uncomfortable those jeans and body hugging t-shirts look, this was definitely a crazy measure taken in the name of love.
My Name is Khan
I promise this is the last Shahrukh Khan entry on the list. But even you know that Rizwaan had to be on this list. I mean how many would go on an arduous journey to tell the President of United States that his name is Khan and he is not a terrorist, all so that his wife can finally accept the man whose last name killed her only son.
Tattooing the name of your lady love seems pretty tame when you see Aamir Khan in Ghajini. Even after suffering from short term memory loss due to a severe head injury, he continues his quest to try and find out the killer of his lady love and avenge her death, with the help of a camera and tattooing the harrowing details on his body.
This is one movie where you are confused whether you sympathize with the hero or slap him for his stupidity. In this movie Jai (Shahid Kapur) who is madly in love in with Neha (Kareena Kapoor) gets embroiled in a plethora of life-threatening incidents with police and mafia both on his trail to get her out of a serious problem, only to realize that he has been framed by his girlfriend and her actual lover. Go figure.
