Khan is a classic example of how one can turn a deficit into an advantage. Long mocked for his wooden acting and dancing, over the years Khan has managed to get past this criticism, carving his own identity. He has transformed himself as an actor, and also entertained his legion of fans with some inimitable dance moves. 'Radio Song', from his upcoming film Tubelight, is a reminder of the many dance moves devised by Khan over the past few years.
