    A pervasive belief among many Indian fans is that he dropped out of school when he didn't.

    He goes through hairstyles like kleenex.

    He simultaneously manages a flamboyant persona and a down-to-earth lack of arrogance.
    His rise to prominence is considered especially unique in that he was born without the advantages and social connections usually necessary in a still--caste-driven India.
