I occasionally go to the local theater to watch Hindi films. If it has Shah Rukh Khan as the lead, I’m so there.
Here are three Bollywood movies starring Khan as the romantic hero. I think romance readers will enjoy these stories because they focus on family, commitment and love.
Don’t worry: these films all have subtitles in a variety of languages.
