Shah Rukh Khan

Age: 44
Occupation: Bollywood actor, businessman
Previous TIME 100 Appearances: 0

Known to his adoring fans as King Khan, the superstar shows no sign of flagging at the box office: his latest vehicle, My Name Is Khan, is a critical and commercial smash. Khan produces most of his movies, which has helped make him one of Bollywood's richest men, with an estimated net worth in excess of $500 million. And he has successfully fused India's two great passions — movies and cricket — by buying a cricket team in the wildly popular Indian Premier League.
