Explore the business side of Shahrukh Khan!


The Times of India recently reported Shahrukh Khan as the second richest actor in the world, estimating his net worth to be at $600 million. This also puts him as the richest actor in the country way ahead of his peers.

The above news made me curious to explore different avenues in which Shahrukh Khan is materially interested. Red Chillies Entertainment is one which is popularly known. Here are the others:

  1. Arclightz and Films Private Limited – Production house
  2. Tuscany Properties Private Limited – Real Estate Company

‘Red Chillies Entertainment ‘ and ‘Arclightz and Films’ are both production houses. They have been involved in movies like Paheli, Filhaal, Ashoka The Great, Om Shanti Om, Ra One, Chalte Chalte, Main Hoon Na, Don 2 etc. Infact, the awaited movie of Shahrukh ‘Raees’ is also produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.

Both these production houses and the real estate company ‘Tuscany Properties’ are headed by Shahrukh and Gauri Khan.

You must also be wondering about the other popularly known Shahrukh’s company – Kolkata Knight Riders, his IPL franchise (Knight Riders Sports Private Limited). Gauri Khan is the director of Knight Riders Sports Private Limited.

Apart from others, husband of Juhi Chawla, the industrialist Jay Mehta is also a director in Knight Riders. Infact, the only other co-actor to share directorships with the Khan family is Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta. They work together in two companies – Arclightz and Films Private Limited and Knight Riders Sports Private Limited.

I found it interesting to explore the business side of Shahrukh Khan, his family and his business relationship with co-actors. I would also explore the financial performance of the above mentioned companies in my next articles.
