But this is an SRK in his late 40s playing 25, though I will take him trying to do youthful over Aamir's laboured efforts at ditto in 3 Idiots. The lines show, and it takes all his charm to make us overlook them. Is the smart SRK brain thinking of what will take him to the next level, in which he can actually play his age? You may get older, but if you've done charm offensives before, that's what you can continue to do. The tricky part is to keep looking for the new while holding on to the old — the essential SRKness —which keeps his fans, as well as plain viewers — coming back for more.
Because if there is one star who needs that next step, it is Shah Rukh. Not Aamir who reaches for character, not Salman who aims for Salman, but SRK who tries for a new expression to add to his self-confessed armoury of 'five'. In Jab Tak Hai Jaan, he showed he could do a couple more.
