MUMBAIl It is rather ironical that Yash Raj Films' much-talked about forthcoming release "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", which is expected to bring cheer to the production banner and wrap up the year on a happy note, is being released in a not very happy time.Starring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan along with newcomer Anushka Sharma, the romantic drama is releasing on December 12.The people in Mumbai, in particular, are still haunted by the wounds inflicted on the nation's movie and financial capital by terrorists 10 days ago. But the production house is hopeful that by the time the movie hits the screen, normalcy will return to Mumbai and the mood of the people, not only in Mumbai, but elsewhere in the country, too, will undergo a change."At least, we are expecting that to happen, though nobody can predict what will happen tomorrow," a spokesman of Yash Raj Films said on Thursday.In Mumbai, the people have begun to come to the cinema halls. But there are palpab…

PETALING JAYA: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he is humbled by being awarded a Datukship.

NEW DELHI: Shahrukh Khan says he was mum all this time on the Mumbai terror attacks as he had "no words" to express his feelings which
were mixed with anger, disbelief and sadness.

"I've tried to keep away from commenting on this as there are no words to express a situation like this because our feelings are mixed with anger, disbelief and sadness," the Bollywood 'badshah' says.

"Being Muslim myself, I believe youngsters need to understand and respect Islam in the right way. It's such a huge waste and my appeal to all in these times and in recent years (sic) is that please can we run what we want in terms of politics, government, jobs and teaching our children with the prime motive of taking communalism out of it," Shah Rukh told BBC Asia Network in an interview to be telecast this Saturday.

"The religion our children are born with should be something they practice as a discipline and work should be developed as the new religion. I t…

Srk's royal party

Shah Rukh hosted a party in his suite, which lasted till the wee hours of the morning; it had Hollywood's biggest stars in attendance

No one can quite throw a huge bash like Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan. And this holds true, not just in Mumbai, but also in Dubai.

Says a source, "After the launch party of Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, hosted by international hotelier, Sol Kerzner (Chairman- Kerzner International) and Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, SRK and Gauri hosted a party at their Atlantis Bridge Suite (costs £14,000 a night)."

rnbdj !! last but not the least

Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan, who has a penchant for acting with debutante, says that he has evolved as an actor after working with newcomers. "It is always a new feeling working with newcomers. They teach you a lot," Khan, who is paired against newcomer Anushka Sharma in his forthcoming film 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi', said during an interaction with media persons. "They (newcomers) are not over-awed by the fact that you have done 60 films. They respect you a lot but do their own stuff," he said. "I see them responding to expressions in a new way and I get to learn. They help me be a better actor," he added. Khan's tryst with newcomers began in 1993 when he was paired against Suchitra Krishnamurthy in the commercially and critically successful 'Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa'. The 'Baadshah' of Bollywood later went on to star with Mahima Chaudhary (Pardes-1997), Preity Zinta (Dil Se-1998), Gayatri Joshi (Swades-2004) and with the 'Chak-…

an exclusive interview !

Did you know that Shah Rukh Khan does not use soap or shampoo? That he has never seen a sunset? That he has a bathroom as big as a living room ? If not, then read on… • You are now 43 years old. Tell me three things you didn't know at 23 and at 33.

At 23, I didn't know that I would be an important film person, I didn't know that there is so much goodness in the world, that looks at me with such kindness, and I didn't know how bad an actor I was. At 33, I didn't know that I could play a school kid in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, or a college kid actually, and pull it off. I didn't know how beautiful my children would grow up to be and I didn't know that at 43, I would still look like 33.• How have your fears changed from the time you were in your twenties, through your thirties and now in your forties.At 23, I was fearless, I had nothing to lose. At 33, I was very conscious materially about the work that I did, I used to get scared of flops and hits. At 43, I onl…

Animation fails to make SRK and SALLU bond

The great divide between Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan has been in news for quite a while. Now, it seems this realistic battle is all set to hit celluloid as well.News is that Karan Johar, who is making an animated version of his directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai called Kuchie Kuchie Hota Hai has roped in Sanjay Dutt to do the voiceover for the character that Salman played in the original. However, the other actors — Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji — will dub for the animated version.Some industry people say Sanjay dubbing for Salman could be a result of the SRK-Salman fight as Karan and SRK are close friends and King Khan is in no mood to reconcile with Salman. However, Karan says the inclusion of Sanjay was due to the changes made to the character Salman originally played.Karan says, "It is true that Sanjay Dutt is lending his voice to the character that Salman played in the original film. In the animated version we made certain modifications to Salman's characte…


Aditya Chopra has so closely guarded the script of Yash Raj Films' next, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi that even the film's unit doesn't know what it's all about. Whoa...Kya jodi hai! After several unpleasant instances when scripts of films were leaked out to the media much before they hit the theatres, Aditya Chopra is in no mood to take any chances with his next film, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, which is his third directorial venture after Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in 1995 and Mohabbatein in 2000. Even though the Chopras have always been careful to keep their scripts under wraps, Aditya is being extra cautious with the Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer, which will release on December 12.Even as there are several rumours doing the rounds about the film's subject, news is that the director has guarded the script so well that even the unit members till today have no clue what the film is exactly all about.Our source said, "Aditya does not follow the usual working style whe…


Frenzied fans, 10 ft cards, tamasha outside the gates… it doesn't get bigger than this. A lowdown on the scene outside SRK's residence on his birthday…As millions of fans flocked outside his bungalow Mannat on Bandstand, Mumbai, SRK was there on the terrace waving at them. Well, the festivities did not just end there. His forthcoming film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was also unveiled that very day.Here's how his day went…Take a look…Trust SRK to climb over terrace rails to reach out to his fans.With so many people flocked outside his house, SRK kind of had to lean over the terrace rails. And the King Khan was right there, first thing in the morning to acknowledge his fan. And then SRK went on to unveil the first look of his forthcoming flick Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. He happily cut the cake as well. And like a good boy he offered the cake to other. But a bad mean man wanted to steal the bouquets from him…But SRK held them close and would not let them go.

Shahrukh and Aamir .... who's ahead ?

When Aamir Khan showed his "yaara da tashan", Shah Rukh Khan yelled "yeh dil maange more". Since then both the Khans have not only been competing in movies but advertisements as well. Sirf Main Hoon Naa... Though not a conscious effort but the Khans have been seen endorsing rival brands of colas, cars and now the DTH services at the same time. However Aamir feels, "There is no competition nowadays. Every actor is doing ads, and our job these days is not to compete. We are only concentrating on the products we are endorsing! Whenever I endorse a product I see if the product is convenient for consumers. Then I am happy that as a star I am able to attract attention towards the product." Trying to negate the competition between him and SRK, Aamir also added, "Whenever I do anything I do not see left or right or what other people are doing. My entire concentration is on whatever I am doing." Perhaps there is no competition between the Khans, be it fil…

SRK Rocks! Shah Rukh Khan's devilishly entertaining 'Temptation Reloaded' live concert at Dubai Festival City Arena fell in the second category.Bristling with high-voltage action and power-packed performances by Bollywood A-listers it was an event Dubai folks are unlikely to forget in a hurry.

Not just for the audience but for the King of Thrill himself too.October 25 was Khan's seventeenth wedding anniversary and he celebrated it with wife Gauri by cutting a massive multi-tier cake in front of the 20,000 capacity crowd, triggering mass hysteria in the stands.Secretly planned by Gauri the onstage celebration caught Khan off guard. But only momentarily. The actor found his bearings quickly. Far to…

As the curtains come down on former India skipper Sourav Ganguly's international career after the Australia series, he will still have a major role in leading Kolkata Knight Riders in the second edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), said team owner and Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan.Most of the team policies are decided by him (Ganguly's) and we will all sit down with him and discuss where he stands and, inshallah, he will play as well for the Knight Riders as he did last season, Shah Rukh told IANS here. Shah Rukh said that his team will start the next season with a three-week camp in January ahead of the second edition of the tournament slated for May. In that pre-season camp, we will all sit down and Sourav will form an important part of that decision (making process), Shah Rukh said. In the first edition, the Knight Riders failed to make the semi-finals despite getting off to a good start. On Ganguly's retirement, the actor felt that great players could only decid…

The organiser of a Shah Rukh Khan international show 'Tempation Reloaded' has decided to take legal action against the actor for cancelling at the last minute and renames show 'Temptation Unloaded'.
Says Qasim Ali, global manager of Sensasian Media which was managing the Temptation Reloaded show, "After Shah Rukh Khan decided to cancel the shows, I sent him an SMS requesting him to do at least one show but he did not revert. We have lost about one million euros in this whole deal and will demand compensation from the actor."Qasim Ali says a clause in the contract he signed with Khan states that the star has the right to keep the down payments in case of cancellation. "So, we have come to the conclusion that the shows have been cancelled on purpose," he said.Khan had reportedly exited three days before the October 17,18 and 19 gigs in Germany because the "organiser had defaulted". Industry watchers say this is the first time the box-office …

When someday someone decided to remake the yesteryear hit Don, it was Shahrukh Khan who was considered as the best bet to match up to the charisma of Amitabh Bachchan. Then be it playing the gangster or dancing to the song Khaike Paan Banaras Wala , SRK did total justice to the act.Just a few moons after Big B graced the wax museum at Madame Tussaud's, it was Shahrukh Khan, so loved and so admired by people all over the world, to be thought worthy and carved into a wax statue.Also, while Bachchan forayed into the small screen with the quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati , it was SRK yet again who was deemed fit to host the second season of the show and thereby match up again the magnetism of the matinee idol.And it doesn't stop here. The same time around the Bachchans kicked off their Unforgettable Tour, King Khan was busy globetrotting for his Temptations Reloaded tour.And now, it's their Dubai connection that has once again forced us to do that comparison.

At star designer Shabina Khan's birthday bash held recently at Olive, Bandra, all eyes were on Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar who were seen bonding in one corner for over an hour.This is interesting, given that Akki has been making digs at SRK in his last few interviews.

The only man who can threaten SRK's position is the Khiladi. This year with the 'Singh' delivering the maximum hits was pitted against the 'King' and the usually politically-correct Akshay made statements about dogs (remember Aamir's blog) and knights (Kolkata Knight Riders). Although SRK never reacted to those statements, the animosity was out in the open. Following which, both avoided each other at filmi dos and social events.An eye-witness from the party says, "The two actors haven't come face-to-face in a long time, so they haven&#…


Red Chillies International Limited, today announces with great regret that they will be unable to facilitate the three city tour of the show "Temptation Reloaded 2008" with the proposed starring of Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan and other superstars in Germany .

SensAsian Media did not fulfil its obligations in due time which makes it impossible for the shows to happen in Germany. We regret the inconvenience that these unforseen circumstances have caused to our fans and the audience. The Shows were planned to be presented in Berlin (Velodrom) on October 17th , in Munich (Zenith Die Kulturhalle) on October 18 th and in Frankfurt (Festhalle) on October 19 th. Source :

A Datuk for SRK

Shah Rukh Khan was in Malaysia on Saturday. He was conferred a Datukship, the country's equivalent of a knighthood.

The actor is among 78 people to get the award in conjunction with the governor's 70th birthday, alongside the country's navy chief, academics, artists and journalists.

Special bond

The Datuk was given to SRK as he has helped promote Malacca as a tourist destination through his films 1 2 Ka 4 and Don.

The actor who returned to Mumbai on Monday says, "I have a special bond with Malaysia and the people who live there. For years, I have been going there and always hoped to make films in the country and it's various states because of the warmth of the people.

They do love me a lot there. I got the opportunity to shoot 1 2 Ka 4 in Malacca and Don there and am really honoured by their awarding me a Datukship.
