Badshah of the Indian film industry Shah Rukh Khan who entered the movie business with Deewana (1992), has given us memorable characters such as Ajay/Vicky in Baazigar, Sunil in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, Raj in DDLJ, Kabir Khan in Chak De! India, and Mohan Bhargav in Swades.
But before landing on the big screen, Khan was known for his acting in popular television serials such as Fauji (1989), Dil Dariya (1988), Circus (1989-1990) amongst others.
On Monday, Doordarshan that aired Circus surprised SRK's fans by announcing the rerun of the serial starting 19 February on their channel, 8 pm onwards.
Drama serial Circus was directed by Aziz Mirza and Kundan Shah and revolved around a circus troupe's day-to-day life.
In an old interview in the early '90s, when Khan was asked about television serials, he had said,"I have a lot of people around me who do acting and still work in television serials. So, if stardom is equated in terms of the value of payment and value of time, then the television stars are much bigger stars. Television is as respectable as films."
