Khan's first hit after a slew of flops, Wanted was on of the first films to cement him into the Bhai mould.
Next came Ek Tha Tiger, positioning Khan as India's top spy. The film would turn into the successful franchise we know it as today, becoming a part of the much-anticipated YRF spy-verse.
Director Kabir Khan has a way of extracting from Khan exactly what his army of fans what they wish to see of the star. Amidst his growing persona as a moral muscleman, the director cast him as Pawan, a man whose magnanimity sees no borders.
Under the hand of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Khan channels the easy charm he was once known for but also delivers a heartbreaking performance as a man left bereft of love.
Devi Lal Singh aka Devil cannot be slotted into a neat mould. Khan plays a man who tries to get a kick out of life whenever he can, eventually turning to the path of crime.
