Shah Rukh Khan has come a long way--the Bollywood actor who was once a 'Fauji' in a television show went on to become the Badshah of Bollywood.

The same man can now entice a billion fans with a single arm-sweep, and there are movies being made on his fans. So, you know it's not an easy task to pay tribute to him.

But Rahul Arya, who calls himself India's first sand animation artist, has managed to leave an incredible etching on the sands of time. Literally. A 200 second sand-art video, directed by Arya, pictures the entire life of SRK poignantly on screen.

If you would think King Khan wouldn't have the time to respond to such videos that he must be getting from his fans on a regular basis, get ready to be surprised.

This is what SRK posted on his Facebook a while back.

"Thank you. Makes me want to work harder when I see my life flashing past me and I still have enough to create more," he wrote.

The actor had once said, "Common people have bigger dreams. I had the hugest dreams when I was a nobody. That's what made me somebody."

As a child, it wasn’t an easy journey for SRK. His father died when Khan was 15 and the family transport business collapsed before being built back up by his mother. “We had a lot of issues in terms of money,” he once said.

Many years later, The Guardian wrote on him: “His very ordinariness has won over his audience, who see him almost like them, as has his on-screen cheekiness. It often seems as if he is winking at filmgoers, admitting his latest vehicle is no masterwork.”
