Diwali, for the Hindus, is the day Lord Ram returned from Lanka after defeating Ravana. Jains celebrate it as the day on which Mahavira attained Nirvana. Sikhs commemorate the return of Guru Har Gobind Singh from the Mughal jails. And the Bollywood buff celebrates it as the day of the year when Shah Rukh Khan raises his Box office toast!
It has been a habit with King Khan to release his pet blockbuster on Diwalis. The DDLJ legend was born on a Diwali 13 years ago. KKHH kept the norm, in 1998. ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’, ‘Veer Zaara’, ‘Don’, ‘OSO’ and many more had been Diwali releases. 2008, however, saw no Khan crackers on Diwali.
SRK's 43rd B'day comes as a relief to his fans who were not allowed the privilege of celebrating his customary Diwali movie.
