It's a long time until Shah Rukh Khan's next release, so I am filling the void by watching as many of his films as I can between now and then. My Twitter friend Ashley suggested a themed series exploring the chemistry between SRK and his leading ladies, and so First Dates with SRK was born! For those who want to play along, here is the schedule for my reaction posts. Get these films in your queue now!
June 3: Juhi Chawla - Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman (1992)
June 10: Kajol - Baazigar (1993)
June 17: Madhuri Dixit - Anjaam (1994)
June 24: Sonale Bendre - English Babu Desi Mem (1996 -videos only) and Duplicate (1998)
July 1: Karisma Kapoor - Dil To Pagal Hai (1997)
July 8: Preity Zinta - Dil Se (1998)
July 15: Rani Mukerji - Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)
July 22: Aishwarya Rai - Mohabbatein (2000)
July 29: Karina Kapoor - Asoka (2001)

August 12: Deepika Padukone - Om Shanti Om (2007)
August 19: Anushka Sharma - Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008)
As you can tell, these are not all of the actresses he has wooed; just the ones who appeared in more than one film as his love interest. I was uncertain about including Karisma Kapoor, but decided that at the very least it's a good excuse to watch Dil To Pagal Hai.

Great list. I like your selection criteria. Lots of good flicks but manageable. Maybe I'll like Mohabbatein better the second time around? :)

I have watched it a few times, and it is still not one of my favorites, though it has some nice moments. I actually play the violin, and find the simulated playing truly annoying. SRK with glasses, however...

Simulated instrument playing in movies generally is so cringe-worthy! I was happy that for Challa in JTHJ there was at least a nod to fretting and strumming in time with the song.
