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…

Dubai: There are two sorts of shows – one that's entertaining and you want to talk about it for a few days. And then there's the other kind - the kind that clogs your memory cells and just sits there for a very long time .

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. The Saturday evening concert was truly special. 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…

Everyone’s invited to Shah Rukh’s party!

It's Shah Rukh Khan's 17th wedding anniversary. And all his fans in the UAE are invited to the party. Arjun Rampal revealed that October 25, the day on which SRK's Temptation Reloaded 2008 show is scheduled in Dubai, is the star's wedding anniversary.Star addresses media before his October 25 concert in Dubai."It's rare for him to get permission from wife Gauri to have a show on this day. So we are going to make it a memorable night," said the actor.Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Hard Kaur, Anusha Dandekar and Ganesh Hegde are among the stars slated to perform along with SRK and Arjun at the show to be held at the Dubai Festival City Arena.SRK and Arjun spoke about the show at a press conference in Dubai held on Thursday at the Country Club Hotel, the main sponsor of the event.It was the most badly organised press conference we have ever attended and we hope the show will be better organised. But despite the crowds of fans at the venue and SRK having to p…


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…


Shah Rukh Khan is set to make a mark as a producer on the small screen. Shah Rukh's Red Chillies Entertainment Pvt Ltd is producing a weekly sitcom called Ghar Ki Baat that will air on NDTV Imagine. Ghar Ki Baat is Red Chillies' first production on television.Says a source, "Ghar Ki Baat is a weekly show that will air on NDTV Imagine. The shoot is going to commence from the 24th of this month. Juhi Babbar, Sumeet Raghavan, Swapnil Joshi and Jayati Bhatia are part of the show. Aziz Mirza is the creative director while Ananth Mahadevan will direct the show. Ghar Ki Baat is probably going to be on the same lines to that of Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi."Though he didn't reveal anything about the show Sumeet Raghavan did confirm being offered the show. On the other hand, Jayati Bhatia admitted to being part of the cast. It is also buzzed that there may be similarities between Ghar Ki Baat and the old time mega hit Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi. When asked to comment on this Jayati replied…


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. Just a few months …


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 guests were surprised to see the two actors engrossed in a deep conversation for long.Khuli dushmaniAkshay and SRK are both fierce competitors. 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 . This is due to the breach of contract by the promoter of the shows SensAsian Media Limited (SensAsian Media). 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.

Maddie as King Khan’s brother

First Published : 14 Oct 2008 01:27:00 AM IST Last Updated : 14 Oct 2008 03:09:27 PM IST

Be it in terms of looks or his demeanour, Maddie has been likened to the sprightly Shah Rukh Khan many a time. And it is perhaps this similarity, that has prompted Karan Johar to cast Maddie as SRK's brother in My Name is Khan.Madhavan, who hasn't smelt a lot of success in Tamil cinema in recent times, is already working for 'Theen Patti' with Amitabh Bachchan and Three Idiots with Aamir Khan. In Tamil, meanwhile, he has signed up for a movie with Thankar Bachan in which Sathyaraj plays his dad. He also has 'Naan Aval Adhu', 'Yaavarum Nalam' pending for release, apart from Aananda PunnagaiSource:|E6rv46c=&SectionID=ngGbWGz5Z14=&MainSectionID=ngGbWGz5Z14=&SEO=Madhavan,+SRK&SectionName=pLyKHNhe4lKKa/XKjQRUVw==

Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan cancels Germany supershows

Frankfurt - Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has cancelled three live song-and-dance shows scheduled in Germany this week, according to his German promoter on Tuesday. The top name in Indian film was to have compered and performed with his cast at a glittering theatrical show on Friday night in Berlin, followed by performances Saturday in Munich and Sunday in Frankfurt. "Cancelling three concerts with about 10,000 tickets sold at the last minute is rudeness to the fans," said SensAsian Media Ltd, the German company organizing the tour, in a statement distributed by a Frankfurt public-relations agency. The company said it was told by way of a letter from the heart- throb star's lawyer that the actor was not available for the "Temptation Reloaded 2008" tour and no reason was given. But the company confirmed there had been disputes during earlier negotiations with the star's agent. Tickets to the shows cost up to 150 euros. Bollywood love-story movies have devel…

Check out the print ads of Shah Rukh Khan Boulevard Click here to add this article to My Clips

For almost two decades, 'Baadshah of Bollywood' Shah Rukh Khan has been entertaining us through the dream world of cinema. The actor, who is known to try out different mediums of entertainment (be it Films/ T.V. / Sports- IPL), is now getting into something which is a shift from the dream world into a world of reality.

In case you are wondering what we are talking about, it's the latest project that King Khan is part of called Shah Rukh Khan Boulevard. For the uninitiated, Shah Rukh Khan Boulevard is an AED 8 billion signature beachfront residential development at the picturesque Dana Island in Ras Al Khaimah, one of the seven Emirates of the UAE. Besides 10 premium residential towers and its fair share of high-end hotels and commercial complexes, the Boulevard will also have an underwater discotheque and lounge connected by a glass tunnel, a sit-in theatre, a shopping mall, called the Shah Rukh Khan Plaza, and a public square on the beach, the first of its kind in the wo…

News -After Rab Ne , SRK will sport a new Avatar in Billoo Barber also

There were reports about SRK postponing his home production, Billoo Barber to 2009. However, the good news is that after a hiatus, the actor intends to resurface in an all new avatar.While some thought he was being nice to friend Aditya Chopra by not releasing it with his Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi on the same day (Dec 12), others thought King Khan wanted to avoid his film to release along with Salman’s Yuvvraaj.
But according to the latest buzz, SRK has different plans. He is planning for a surprise element in Billoo Barber. The actor will be seen in an all new avatar in the film. A source says, “It was Shah Rukh’s decision to postpone the release of Billoo Barber to next year as soon after his Temptation Tour, SRK will be taking a long break and work on his new look as he did during OSO. He has also decided to increase the length of his role to a full-fledged one†.

“I sell dreams, now I’m going to sell reality,” Shah Rukh Khan tells Masala! as he launches SRK Boulevard

You already know about SRK Boulevard, the Dhs8 billion beachfront project Shah Rukh Khan is building on Ras Al Khaimah's Al Dana Island, in collaboration with the UAE-based TSA Group. Now find out how he wants this project to be "unique" and "special".

In a one-on-one with Masala! following a press conference, King Khan talks about his idea of a perfect home and more.

How will you leave your mark on this project?

I've been really trying to think that out. I don't want it to be too much SRK, like any sort of image or photograph, because one day if you don't like Shah Rukh Khan, I don't want you not to like your home. I know finally Shah Rukh Khan will get over, but I want you to love your home all the time.

I want to design something with my wife and (architect) Tony that will be me, yet not be in your face. A thing you will look at and say, this is something Shah Rukh Khan did himself. It could even be a flower arrangement (pointing to a vase on the…

Kajol keeps mum about "My name is Khan"

Kajol does what she is famous for - flashing her stardom - at an event in Delhi where she came to promote a jewellery exhibition. She kept up her aloof manner. But Kajol's mood changed for the better when we spoke to her about her recent goodwill streak with Cherie Blair.

She said, "I am deeply honoured and charity is something I always wante to do so. I will do my best."

But, on her working with Shahrukh Khan once again, for Karan Johar's "My name is Khan", Kajol kept mum.

She said, "There is nothing to talk about. I have not even started the shooting. so once I start with it we will talk about it."

With "Toonpur ka Superhero", and a few special appearances in her kitty, it looks like Kajol has
successfully broken the married jinx.

Shah Rukh Khan Says I was launching a business venture in Dubai and my hosts were religious Muslims. They wanted to take my entire family on Haj

Here are the views of King Khan on terrorism, religion and a wide gamut of subject, as published in a leading weekly. Evil is a religion of its own. There's no such thing as a professional Muslim terrorist. There's just a professional terrorist. Evil has become a discipline, a faith of its own. It does take, after all, a lot of planning to make explosives, do a recce of where to plant them, and then plan a way to escape.My children are growing up at a time when a new religion has come up, which is morally, ethically and humanely against the tenets of any faith. Fundamentalism itself has become the new religion. And I fear it will take elements from every religion and create a new force if we don't educate our children appropriately.Every time I read of a bomb blast or watch such an incident on TV, two things strike me. One is good. That those directly affected by the attack never actually blame any particular community. But what disturbs me is this-and it really goe…

King Khan to bid goodbye to acting

This piece of news will not sound good to Shahrukh Khan's fans. But it is a fact and we all have to accept it any way. It is reported that King Khan will bid goodbye to films in three years. He is planning to move to Dubai and his wife Gauri has already started planning for a new Mannat in Dubai. Mannat is very dear to SRK and he is emotionally attached to his abode. With an aim to feel the same pleasure, he has given the task of designing a replica of Mannat in Dubai to Gauri as he has made up his mind to leave film and get into production and building housing complexes.

The source continues, "Shah Rukh has already started looking – and it has just been announced – for land in Dubai where he intends to build housing and shopping complexes."
Says a source, "Shah Rukh knows that his time in Bollywood as an actor is limited. An actor can only go on for so long and with the kind of roles he plays – young romantics – then he will not be able to do that for any longer. He …

Linc Pen set to rope in Shah Rukh

Linc Pen and Plastics is all set to rope in Shah Rukh Khan as its brand ambassador. "We want to aggressively market our brand in the western region where Shah Rukh is popular and it is possible only through brand endorsements," said company MD Deepak Jalan. 

Mr Jalan, however, declined to quantify the endorsement fee that King Khan would get. "We will spend Rs 8 crore this year for advertising and marketing," he said. 

Linc accounts for less than 5% of the Rs 504-crore western India market for writing instruments. Pan-India, the company has an 8-9% marketshare with Cello and Reynolds being the major competitors. The pen industry in India is worth Rs 2,100 crore, Mr Jalan said. 

Like all other sectors, the pen industry in India is also hit by rising input costs. Mr Jalan said the company "would keep in mind raw material prices, which have gone up 10-15%, while launching new products. 
Linc is expected to launch a premium segment pen this year.

That the composing duo of Salim-Sulaiman are talented is something everyone will agree with, the two have been behind the music for some really big films like Chak De India, Aaja Nachle and Fashion. Up next for them is the soundtrack for the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Salim recently sat down with Sandhya Iyer and talked all things music. Here are some highlights from that interview.

Their most recent release has been the music for the animated film Roadside Romeo and Salim said they really did not approach it any differently than their other soundtracks, "The thing is that even though this is an animation film, it has been treated like a proper Hindi film. The only difference is that this has dogs as characters. We wanted to keep the 'Indianness' intact and at the same time keep it kid-friendly and modern. The whole idea was to have songs that are simple, urban…lot of repetitive hooks. We never imagined there would be so much detailing involved in the film…

'I am extremely shy of women'

King Khan was in Singapore for the Zee Carnival on October 11 and 12 at the Suntec Convention Centre. It was easier to catch him at the Changi airport than it is to nail him down in India. Shah Rukh Khan, the unquestioned Baadshah of Bollywood, opened out a side of him not easily seen in film glossies. This quote-centred profile offers a glimpse of this mega successful star, producer, television anchor and businessman son of the late Meer Taj Mohammed Khan and Lateef Fatima whose greatest regret in life is that his parents are not around to share his success. Shoma A Chatterji offers us a glimpse...Did you know that Shah Rukh Khan had finished reading Gregory David Roberts' Shantaram much before the book hit India shores and recommended it to some of his producer friends?" I asked them if they would want to make a film based on the book but there was no response. Now, Hollywood has taken it," says the star whose home library has a collection of more than 5,000 books of w…
