Shah Rukh Khan and SS Rajamouli make it to Time's 100 most influential list!

After topping the 2023 TIME100 poll, Shah Rukh Khan has been named the world's 100 most influential people of the year. As per Time magazine, the superstar, filmmaker SS Rajamouli, author Salman Rushdie and television host and judge Padma Lakshmi are on the coveted list. 

Deepika Padukone, who wrote Shah Rukh's profile, said, "For someone who has known him intimately and cares for him deeply, 150 words will never do justice to the phenomenon that is Shah Rukh Khan." She added he will be 'known forever as one of the greatest actors of all time'. "But what truly sets him apart is his mind, his chivalry, his generosity. The list goes on...," she praised him. 

On the other hand, Alia Bhatt penned a note for her RRR director, Rajamouli. The actress wrote, "I call him the master storyteller because he genuinely loves the flair and abandon of stories. And he brings us together." She continued, "Whatever choice you make, just do that with love. Because even if the film doesn't work, the audience will see love in your eyes for what you're doing."

The list released by Time magazine also includes US President Joe Biden, King Charles, Syrian-born swimmers and activists Sara Mardini and Yusra Mardini, star icon Bella Hadid, billionaire CEO Elon Musk and iconic singer and artist Beyonce.
