TIME Magazine’s Annual Readers’ Poll
Shah Rukh Khan receives more votes than both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as Lionel Messi to take the Top spot in TIME Magazine’s annual readers’ poll.
In the TIME100 survey from 2023, Shah Rukh Khan earned 4% of the 1.2 million reader votes.
SRK Tops TIME Magazine Poll
Shah Rukh Khan came in first place in the TIME100 Reader Poll. Reader votes determined which individuals would appear in the annual survey of the most influential figures published by the famed magazine TIME.
The actors came in ahead of people like Serena Williams, Mark Zuckerberg, Michelle Yeoh, an Oscar-winning actor, and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the president of Brazil. Following more than 1.2 million votes, Shah Rukh triumphed with 4% of the popular vote. If that isn’t caused for celebration, we’re not sure what is.
