This Vintage Video From 'Dil Dariya' Proves Why Shah Rukh Khan Can Sell Anything

King Khan.


Shah Rukh Khan is called the Baadshah of Bollywood for a reason. Apart from starring in blockbuster movies and winning awards, Khan has been seen in hundreds of TV commercials selling soaps, paints, cars, wristwatches, toothpaste and even fairness creams.

But before he became a star and landed into brand endorsements, he was doing television serials. One of them happens to be Dil Dariya (1988). Set in Punjab, the story revolves around the Hindu and Sikh neighbours who are best friends.

In one of the scenes, Khan unknowingly yet convincingly sells clothes to his would be in-laws.
