"Happy New Year" actor Shah Rukh Khan is going to turn 49 on 2 November. The Baadshah of Bollywood has always celebrated his birthday in a private manner but this year it's got to be grand.

Khan has several reasons to celebrate this year. While the success of "Happy New Year" is evidently something he will be glad about, his youngest son AbRam too will be there to join his father on the special day.

The handsome hunk who had humble begginings has come so far in his career that the star is now known as "King Khan". After giving blockbusters which have become members of the 100 crore club, he deserves to be called the King of Bollywood.

The actor started his career from TV serials and has gone through many hurdles in his professional as well as personal life. However, his wife Gauri Khan is known to have been the rock next to him. The couple has three beautiful children – son Aryan, daughter Suhana, and toddler AbRam.
