Shah Rukh Khan vs Humayun Saeed – Who Is The King

Shah Rukh Khan and Humayun Saeed both need absolutely no introduction. Both of these actors have a massive fan following. Shah Rukh Khan is just as popular in Pakistan as he is in his own country. Same is true for Humayun Saeed, lately he has become more popular in India than ever. Humayun Saeed already enjoys great fan following in his own country. The interesting bit is that there have been many times when Humayun Saeed has been compared to Shah Rukh Khan for some reason or the other. Humayun Saeed himself has at times given the example of Shah Rukh Khan when he faced criticism for playing leading roles in films and dramas even though according to some people he is not young enough to play the ‘hero’. Is there really a comparison between Shah Rukh Khan and Humayun Saeed? And if we were to compare them, then on what grounds? Here is out take on Shah Rukh Khan vs Humayun Saeed discussion.

The Comparisons

There have been many times when people within Pakistan have also criticized Humayun Saeed by drawing demeaning comparisons with Shah Rukh Khan. There was this one time when someone called Humayun Saeed “ghareebon ka Shah Rukh Khan” – which basically implied that he was a cheap version of the popular Bollywood celebrity. Humayun Saeed’s response summed up perfectly how he saw this comment as an insult to the Pakistani awam and not him!

The fact remains that these two actors have always been on cordial ties. They have also performed together on the stage when Pakistani actors were invited to India. The age difference between these actors is huge therefore it won’t be wrong to say that while Shah Rukh Khan’s days as a leading hero are over after giving one flop film after the other, Humayun Saeed is still going stronger than ever.

Who Is More Versatile?

No doubt, Humayun Saeed has reinvented himself over and over again. He still reigns supreme on the big and the small screen. He has not only starred in big projects but he has also produced some of the most popular television and cinema ventures of recent times. While no one can question Shah Rukh Khan’s popularity, the fact is that Shah Rukh Khan’s acting has always been on the over the top side. Apart from this he has never changed his style of acting. His dialogue delivery and expressions remain more or less the same no matter what kind of character he plays. Humayun Saeed on the other hand has experimented more than once and he can mould himself in different characters. He has played the larger than life hero and at the same time he played a love-stricken hopeless romantic, a man who was completely helpless and a complete victim in his latest drama Mere Pass Tum Ho. Humayun Saeed makes his fans wait for his projects while Shah Rukh Khan has so many times worked in so many projects back to back.

The Contribution to Entertainment Industry

There was a time when Shah Rukh Khan’s name sold films but that is no longer the case. He himself has decided to take a break from acting because he too can see that even though people love him, his films are just not delivering. Shah Rukh Khan has obviously done more work than Humayun Saeed because of the age difference and also because of the fact that Indian film industry is much more active than that of Pakistan.

While Shah Rukh Khan has only contributed to the industry by acting in the films which generated great revenues, Humayun Saeed has acted as well as produced many such films. Although on the international level most often we see Shah Rukh Khan being highlighted way more than Humayun Saeed ever has but the fact is that on the national level Humayun Saeed has done more for the entertainment industry of Pakistan. Humayun Saeed has also proved himself as an intelligent business man who is constantly growing his enterprise with him being the central figure.

The Persona

Humayun Saeed is one of those few superstars who have relied wholly on their own capabilities. He works hard on his physique and he does whatever it takes to look good. Humayun Saeed has never been part of any controversy and even when he is dragged into such a matter, he always takes the higher road. Humayun Saeed is focused entirely on his career. Shah Rukh Khan on the other hand has very often been part of controversies. He does not always take criticism gracefully. A recent example of that was when Jaya Bachan termed Happy New Year a nonsensical film and Shah Rukh Khan made sure that everyone involved ‘explained’ what was going on here!

Style Game and Looks

Shah Rukh Khan and Humayun Saeed both have worked hard to get where they are today. Both of them were not star kids when they entered the industry. They have worked their way up owing to their own efforts. While Shah Rukh Khan’s age is over since he has failed to deliver in the past few years, Humayun Saeed still has a lot to offer to his fans.

While Shah Rukh Khan has clearly turned to plastic surgery lately to look younger and more refreshing, Humayun Saeed has never done so. Like any other actor, Humayun Saeed uses make-up to enhance his features but he is totally comfortable in his own skin. Unlike Shah Rukh Khan Humayun Saeed has never endorsed a fairness cream. Apart from this Humayun Saeed owns his age and most of his looks are more manly than boyish. He knows how to make the most of his manly charm. Shah Rukh Khan on the other hand is still busy looking cute and is finding it hard to change his style game to suit his age. At 54 he could be doing character roles and looking his age but very often his styling does not go well with his age.

The Verdict

Humayun Saeed is a growing star who has proved time and again that he is here to stay. He owns who he is and is clearly not going to change himself to fit into certain standards set by the society. Shah Rukh Khan on the other hand should in a decent manner exit from the industry since his time is over. He can easily sit back and enjoy the massive fan following he has earned over the decades.

  • There is absolutely no comparison, Shah rukh Khan may be more globally known n has earned more money, but when it comes to acting he is just 1 D , kkkkkkkiran n that’s about it. As for Humayun, look up old n new dramas, not just MPTH, he seems like a completely different person in each role.

  • Jab main modeling karta tha tu log mujeh humayon saeed se milate the tu main kehta tha nhi main alag hon , humayon saeed apni jaga , sharukh khan apni jaga ,,, haan dono dhabhang hain.

  • The writer really does not know much about Shahrukh Khan. Suggest he should do his homework before writing an article.

  • Who wrote this wonderful piece, I want to kiss their hands. It takes guts to speak The truth. SRK is overrated. He cannot act and he looks awful.

    • King is always king or rahi bat looks ki to SRK ne apne courier ki suruat nagative se ki thi good looks se nahi or ye humayu he kon mene to naam bhi paheli bar suna SRK is world wide celebrity Bina makeup apne aap ko bhi dekhna 😂😂

  • Shahrukh khan should exit from the scene. He looks worse than he looked 20 years ago. He was always a not nice looking man!

    There is no comparison with Humayun Saeed.
    He is the best!

  • well for all praising Humayun Saeed’s acting, kindly read international reviews of his films Bin Roye and JPNAs.
    Humayun Saeed has done chocolate boy type unidimensional roles all his career and his lifetime earnings are even half of what Srk’s last production Badla made.
    There is no comparison at all.

  • Humayun Saeed is a way better actor than Shah Rukh Khan please write an article about Salman Khan vs Humayun Saeed or Aamir Khan vs Humayun Saeed please

  • Sorry to say your website going from worse to worst…can it even be a topic to discuss that much? So pointless.. do what u were known for i.e reviewing dramas. There is no comparison btw these two..Both have entirely different situations and different work styles..
    Trying to create topics from nowhere, trying to make everything news like cheap channels or evening urdu newspapers doesn’t make u tactful. .it makes you low..
    P.s : there might be many mistakes in me comment , take me message not language.

    • Exactly
      Humayu Saeed is a drama actor who has found some luck in films due to zero competition.
      Better to compare him with Ronit Roy.
      Kal ko De Niro ke sath competition kra dena ha in ne.
      So much stupid article.

      • It seems that now admin has so material now to entertain us. Next article would be adnan siddiqui va aamir khan, maduri vs ayeza khan or reema…possibilities are infinite. Then come down to xyz dressing vs 123 dressing ,make up, blush on foundation shades, relationship of abc vs breakups of 10,20

  • No doubt, humayyun performed and proved himself awesome, brilliant, challenging, but comparison between s.k and H. S isn’t justifiable due to global intro of both heroes of own fans. But h.s is now at great. Love him

  • Well neither I’m from pakistan nor india so if we think upright and straight I find humayun acting more decent and his roles his dialogues are more meaningful.. he gives justice to his roles.. he doesnt fake it.. hes a versatile actor with morals and manners.. when he speaks in public or in a interview hes calm and straightforward.. on the other hand shahrukh khan is a good actor but hes always played a role of a hero who’s desperate for a girl a psycho chasing a girl *tu meri nehin ho sakhti toh kissi ki bhi nehin ho sakhti* kinda masala type which has really messed up the society in india Pakistan.. and most of his movies have the same acting.. he was ok for time being but people do get bored with the same food if eaten for a long time.. I have enjoyed few of his movies but I wouldnt watch his movies more than 2x.. no doubt hes a great actor but comparing his acting with humayun is an insult…😑

  • Srk is srk no one can reach that level. The answer and evidence you will find based on his fans and popularity basis
    Firstly i want to know who is this ‘HUMAYUN’ genuinely speaking i came to know about him just today itself

  • Shahrukh also had a brief but successful career on Indian tv during the early 90’s which got him noticed and gave him big breaks in Bollywood.

  • first of all, i didn’t even know who is humayun. i think fawad khan is more popular in india than mr.humayun. i only knew mughal humayun and not this actor humayun.
    second thing, no one can reach the stardom of srk. no actor.he has a global fan following unlike saeed.
    third, the writer of this fkng article should see srk movies like ‘my name is khan’, ‘fan’,’swadesh’, devdas etc. and then compare his acting with saeed
    fourth, every actor and actress resolves to plastic surgery around the globe.
    fifth, srk is king and maybe has awards 5× the age of humayun
    ps:don’t compare srk with saeed next time

  • Are u serious just got to know there is some one by name Humayun who is being compared to a person who has entertained the whole world for last 25 yrs common this is one of the shittiest articles i have gone through and shame on the person who wrote this article 🤣🤣🤣 to be honest I don’t think 10% of fan following he has of wat srk has in the world srk is known as King of Bollywood “once a king always a king” please keep that in mind..
    Advise to the person wrote this article please ilaj karwa lo bhai/behen..

  • Who is this Humayun whatever??? Don’t compare SRK with some random actor.. and above all your so called final verdict sucks..u r nobody to decide what SRK should stfu..😈

  • A moment of silence for all those doesn’t know HSd.. As far as concerned SRK can only over act while HSd is Infact an actor who perform simple characters in very real way۔

    • Yes SRK can go OTT but my argument is Humayun can only do these simple characters or sober characters as demonstrated by nearly all his dramas or films…. Barring perhaps what I’ve seen of Kafir… Please tell me how he is versatile then?

  • Don’t u think u choose easiest way to promote Ur actor matalab srk naam lo pata hi kitane fans hai sabko pata lag hi jayega tumare humayan ke baare me like seriously Naam bi ABI Suna hai and u just wanted that right compar karane ke b koi limit hoti hai global star hai aur srk ke thi tom b fan hai tumare human ke baare me koun jaata hai bas sabko srk piche hi padana hai jealousy ki b haad hoti hai shukar manao tumare hero baare kuch nahi kaya o tho srk ne kaha tha kis b actor ko nicha nahi dekane ko varana Hume b atta hai asiliyat dikana tum tho bahot kuch hove hoge bahot logo ko tumare humayan ke baare pata chalega srk ke badolat agali baar koi achha sa topic chose karana yese bakawas nahi

  • Lol.. is this your new tactic to generate more traffic to your website. Because it sucks. BIG TIME! You should kindly stick to posting reviews admin sahab. Too much greed for ad revenues and you just might start losing your site visitors. People are only interested in reviews here, not this ghisa pita nonsense comparisons. It’s ironic that a site that has a title of reviewit only allows for reviewers to review 3 dramas in a week. Your homepage also showcases only 3 drama reviews in the review section now. For what? This stupid joke of an article. Shame on you.

  • Use to love coming to reviewit but fazool articles like this I don’t want to bother…. There is no comparison at least in terms of acting…. Humayun is a good actor and no doubt impressive in MPTH but he has played Variations of a character with a sober demeanor in 90% of the dramas or films he has started in barring maybe Kafir? Even Fawad Khan is miles ahead in terms of versatility… Remember he started with Dastaan! Sorry but before Dillagi even Humayun was put into “uncle” category and people were not interested in him…. SRK might have done some horrible unforgivable films like Happy New year but are you saying he can’t act differently if required… See Koyla, Baazigar, My Name is Khan, Fan etc… Every actor has done massy type roles or develops a style… That’s commercial cinema for you!… for SRK it was romance… even Amitabh Bachchan went through bad phase but everyone agrees he is an awesome actor… That way Pakistani actor Shaan is a bad actor… playing a dumb villager in so many movies but we can all see he could really act and was better than those movies! Please also do some research next time as SRK is also a big producer for movies and has a VFX venture too. Please also have the guts to add your name to your article if you’re gonna try and be controversial! Lol

    • Humayun Saeed can also act differently if required watch Kaafir, Inteha, Yalghaar, Punjab Nahi Jaungi etc Shahrukh hasn’t given a memorable performance like Humayun Saeed has in Meray Paas Tum Ho

  • LOL a good way to get PR for MR Humayun Saeed😂🙏🏻🙏🏻 Please research and then try to write an article, don’t make a fool of yourself that’s all I am going to say here.

  • oye ye shah rukh kon hai ?
    humayun is the best drama acting is more difficult than a film. we should support our actors rather than others.

  • Helo,ever heard of Red Chillies enteriments,it is SRK production company, one of the top company ,plus ,SRK is very stylish, in formal events. SRK films are classic now,he is a tremendous actor . Nevertheless , humayun saeed is a tremendous talents ,in Pakistan he does come close to srk ,both do tv,and films ,plus,both msde a very awesome pair with Mahira khan, in very successful films ,Raees,and bin Roya 👍

  • Bhai I am from peshawar. till this very date I didn’t knew humayun but I know SRK from the past 2 decades. In terms of popularity its 10 and 90 (humayun and SRK). I know SRk is less versatile but his acting ability is WOW. SRK delivered only 4 flops this decade (only 4) 4 blockbusters and 2 hits and what do you mean by age in Hollywood there is no such bullshit (the actor is old he shouldn’t do movies) like WTF?. Al pachino and De Niro are 78+ and still delivering outstanding movies( e.g IRishman ). Look at Denzel Washington and liam nesson Tom Cruise, RDJ etc They all are older than SRK so acting has nothing to with age.Ups and downs come and Srk is one of the few bollywood actor of all time who has given very few flops.
    SRK has no match in bollywood and humayun isn’t even a comparison. He should be compare with Saif ali khan.
