Mammootty for Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar
The 90s musically blockbuster hit film, ‘Dil Se’ gained immense popularity through its song, ‘Chaiyan Chaiyan‘ and the title song, ‘Dil Se‘. And Shahrukh Khan as Amarkant Verma is a stunner in the film. We believe that Shahrukh Khan would have won the National Award for this.

Award won by- Ajay Devgn for The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
In Devdas, Shahrukh Khan gives the best of him on the screen to alter his image from Chocolate boy to a harder. But, again Ajay Devgn manages to beat Shahrukh Khan with his impeccable acting skills in ‘The Legend Of Bhagat Singh’ and won the National Award.
Award won by Saif Ali Khan for Hum Tum
Possibly the time when Shahrukh Khan almost booked himself a National Award for Gowariker’s ‘Swades’. But, unlucky Shahrukh! this time Saif Ali Khan beat Shahrukh by his Hum Tum. Everyone was shocked at that time as Shahrukh Khan is the ideal for the Nationals!!
Chak De India (2007)
Award won by Prakash Raj for Kanchivaram
Shahrukh Khan gives him once in a lifetime performance for the super hit film ‘Chak De India’. He won many awards for the film but poor Shahrukh Khan couldn’t make it for the Nationals again!!
My Name Is Khan (2010)
Award won by Dhanush for Aadukalam & Salim Kumar for Adaminte Makan Abu
Shahrukh’s performance in ‘My Name Is Khan’ is something beyond perfection. The film was said to break all the stereotype and the most lovable as the tough role of Shahrukh Khan. But, what happened at the end? South actor Dhanush won the National Award for Aadukalam and the second winner was Salim Kumar for ‘Asaminte Makan Abu’.
