Shah Rukh Khan is the only Indian actor who has been included in an international list of 50 greatest actors of all time by a prominent British Magazine Empire

The 57-year-old Bollywood superstar has been included in the Empire magazine's list which also includes Hollywood giants like Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Anthony Marlon Brando, Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, and others.

The magazine said Khan has a career that has now spanned four decades of "near unbroken hits, and a fanbase of pretty much billions".

The magazine  highlighted Khan's notable characters from four movies — Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed "Devdas", Karan Johar's "My Name Is Khan" and "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", and "Swades", directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar.

His dialogue from the 2012 movie "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" — "Zindagi toh har roz jaan leti hai… Bomb toh sirf ek baar lega" (Everyday life kills us a little. A bomb will kill you only once) — has been recognised as the "iconic line" of his career.

"Jab Tak Hai Jaan" was made by filmmaker Yash Chopra's and featured Khan as an Indian Army Major named Samar Anand. The film also starred Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
