In times of CAA, police encounters, JNU and AMU, and now DSP Davinder Singh, Indian TV serials are still about who loves whom and who loves to hate whom.

 

Everybody loves the army these days – politicians, TV news channels, Twitter troll armies and Bollywood movies. But there is no army on entertainment television.
 
So, come back Shah Rukh Khan, India needs its Fauji.
 
That, by the way, is the name of the TV serial (Doordarshan, 1989) that helped launch SRK’s career as the actor who went on to win blockbuster fame and fortune in Bollywood.
 
He appeared in other TV series, like Circus, Dil Dariya (DD National) but it was as Abhimanyu Rai, the carefree and careless young jock with a mop of most annoying hair in his eyes, who decides to follow in his elder brother’s footsteps and join the army, that made Shah Rukh Khan something of a household star – old timers still remember him as the army cadet out to prove that one day, his instructor Major Vikram Rai will be known as his brother.
 
Shah Rukh Khan has not returned to TV serials following his success in films, except fleetingly as Amitabh Bachchan’s replacement as the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati (Sony).
 
Now, it is the perfect time for him to reprise the role that first got him noticed, for five very good reasons.
