Shah Rukh Khan has been an inspiration for one and many. Right from his songs, his films and his signature 'arm spread', people love to emulate him. He has been an inspiration to upcoming actors and also to people who want to join films. Shah Rukh Khan has always maintained that it was Amitabh Bachchan and Dilip Kumar. 

But SRK at an event recently said that he has always been inspired by real-life heroes such as PT Usha, Milkha Singh, Mohammad Ali, Mother Teresa. He also adds that he loves how the Indian hockey team has progressed and is reaching scaling heights and doing India proud on an International level. " I am not praising the hockey team because of my movie Chak De India, but also because I genuinely appreciate the hard work they are putting in putting Indian hockey team on the world map."

Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in the role of a dwarf in Aanand L Rai's next film.
