Happy New Year 2010 !

SRK’s New Year resolution!

So what makes Lift Kara De a much-awaited show? For starters, 20 superstars, the suave Karan Johar as anchor and the fans who represent the hopes and their other fans.

All of these things are perfect ingredients for a great show. But apparently, there's also going to be a special and meaningful moment that will unfold on January 1, 2010 at 8 pm on Sony Entertainment Television. Shah Rukh Khan, after his great experience on the show, will make a New Year's resolution to live life differently here on and hopes all the viewers will do so too. In the very first episode, King Khan opens up on his experience of meeting his craziest fan and his humbling experience on the unending adulation he gets every day from millions of his fans. Also what cannot be missed is the emotional twist in the show that unfolds — a crazy fan going delirious with joy after meeting his/her living God, while being blissfully unaware of the wheels of change they have set in motion that is about to alter s…

SRK's Ra-1 in Miami from March 2010!

The shooting of Shah Rukh Khan's next, the SFX extravaganza, Ra-1, is all set to commence from March 2010. The superhero project is to go on the floors in early March and the first phase of shooting will last for about a month. The location chosen is the sun and sand of Miami.

As per executive producer, Prashant Shah, founder, president and CEO of New Jersey based Bollywood Hollywood Productions, though it is a superhero film like SPIDERMAN and SUPERMAN but instead of the darker and grittier city like Gotham City, the location chosen is the sun and sand of Miami. Apart from the exotic location what drew Shah to Miami was the wonderful experience that he had in 2008, during the shooting of Tarun Mansukhani's DOSTANA.

As per Shah, while the shooting will be on locations in and around the city, the cast and crew will be based at the Doubletree Grand in Coconut Grove.

Must say its good news for all SRK fans and countless children who are anxiously awaiting this exciting offering f…

No new year celebrations for SRK, Karan

Karan Johar gives his new year plans a miss; will remain in Mumbai to complete the last leg of My Name is Khan. SRK follows suit; will spend
Shahrukh Khan with his Family More Pics

time with family at Mannat

Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan are not just the co-producers of My Name is Khan, they plan and cancel their holidays in tandem too. While Karan will stay in town to work on the editing and soundwork of My Name is Khan; SRK will have a lazy time with family at his residence in Bandra, Mannat.

Karan had initially planned to go abroad to bring in the New Year and SRK was supposed to stay at his Dubai villa. However, SRK will return from Dubai to spend a quiet new year at his house.

Our source said, "Karan had cancelled his new year plans last year, because of the 26/11 attacks. He has been visiting Goa for the new year for the past three to four years. This time, he was really looking forward to visiting either LA or New York. He was forced to cancel his trip as he is b…

Kajol states working with SRK is a bad habit

After Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham the trio of Shah Rukh, Kajol and will be back once again with Karan Johar's My Name Is Khan. Kajol is excited as she is back with a film after a two year gap. Her last was her home production U Me Aur Hum. But the actress says working with Shah Rukh is a bad habit. "Once you work with him you are spoilt. When a lot of people saw Kuch Kuch Hota Hai or Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge they believed in us. It has set the standard for us. When you will watch this film too you will think of nothing but of Rizwan Khan played by Shah Rukh. The film is a humanitarian tale of love and sacrifice. It's about triumph of human emotion."Kajol feels that nothing has changed in Shah Rukh, "Except for his six pack abs which he didn't have during the making of Dilwale Dulhaniya." But goes on to add further, "We have worked hard on this film and it has been an intense experience to go through it. I think Karan's films completes us. I ha…

MY NAME IS KHAN music to be showcased in 20 countries

The relationship between Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and global music giants, Sony Music, has withstood the test of times for more than a decade and has been a fulfilling one for both. Right from KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI to WAKE UP SID, they have always delivered some quality music and it is but natural that the music album of perhaps the most anticipated and the biggest movie of 2010, MY NAME IS KHAN, will be another rewarding experience for both Dharma Productions and Sony.

In order to keep up with the current demand of heavy and aggressive marketing and promotion, Sony has chalked out an intensive plan to showcase Karan Johar's directorial venture starring Bollywood's global superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in all key international markets.

In what must be a first in overseas marketing, the music of MNIK will be showcased in over 20 countries with specific marketing plans for each territory. Cross over markets will also be targeted and Fox Star Studios, which is the gl…

Bollywood celebrity Shah Rukh Khan to star in feature film shot in early 2010 in Miami

   One of Bollywood's biggest stars is slated to spend about a month in Miami shooting a film that could be seen by up to half a billion people around the globe.
   Executive Producer Prashant Shah, founder, president and CEO of New Jersey-based Bollywood Hollywood Productions, said besides entertaining global audiences, his film geared for India may also draw global investors to Miami.
   An "estimated $50 million was dropped into the city after they saw our film," he said of "Dostana," a 2008 Bollywood film he produced in Miami. "I know at least 50 Indian families from Southeast Asia who, after they saw the film, bought homes in Miami."
   This latest project, he argued, will spur even more investment in the area thanks to star Shah Rukh Khan.
   Mr. Shah said filming on "Ra.One" is expected to begin in March and last about 30 days. It's also expected to generate about 1,500 additional jobs.
   It's a superhero film, much like "Su…

No Reason to Celebrate

Let's get this straight: Dulha Mil Gaya is a mediocre album that's essentially reminiscent of 90s music and doesn't match up to the standards of the contemporary music. In this Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen and Fardeen Khan starrer, the title track and 'Shiri Farhad' are the only saving graces of the soundtrack.

Inspired from the philosophy of 'Akela aaya hai tu, akela hi jayega', the first song on the album, 'Akela Dil', is indeed a groovy number which compels one to relax and contemplate on the real meaning of life. Adnan Sami lends an amazing uniqueness to the song. Anushka Manchanda, despite getting only a few seconds on the song, sounds great with her high pitched rusty voice.

'Dulha Mil Gaya' is a vigorous number sung by none other than King of Bhangra, Daler Mehndi. With the sounds of dhol in the background, Daler's vocals are a sheer treat for the ears. The beauty of this song lies in its simple lyrics; and Daler's rendition tak…

SRK wants to flirt with Abhi

Superstars can be quite blunt with their remarks on the other actors in the industry.

At Star Plus' Jashn 2010 - Dhamaka Naye Saal Ka when director and friend Karan Johar offered Shah Rukh Khan to be a part of Dostana Part 2, King Khan immediately turned down the offer and said that after sporting a six-pack he would not like to spoil his image of a macho man.

He added though that, on any given day, he would love to flirt with Abhishek Bachhan and John Abraham, but still not at the cost of his "straight" image. We wonder what wife Aishwarya Rai Bachhan has to say to this who was present right there!!

SRK: I'm not anti-social

He may be known for being reserved. His interactions might be limited to a select few, but this does not bother SRK in the least.

The superstar of Bollywood has vehemently come out in the open against people who dub him anti-social. In a recent interview, King Khan admitted that he loves to be on his own but this should not be misinterpreted.

SRK, who is all set to roll out his biggest film till date; MY NAME IS KHAN (MNIK), is gung-ho about his character Rizwan Khan in the film. SRK feels that playing Rizwan was one of the big challenges and he enjoyed every bit of it.

According to SRK, MNIK, is not a serious subject, but something that will have its lighter moments. So, to call MNIK a film based on terrorism will be a gross mistake. The film also assumes significance since we will get to see SRK pair up with Kajol after ages.

SRK can be humble!

Shah Rukh Khan, the pains and failures of 2009 behind him if not entirely forgotten, is looking forward to the New Year because it brings with it

the imminent release and promise of the biggest film of his career (his words, not mine) – Karan Johar's My Name Is Khan.

He's had a bad year starting with the shoulder injury and surgery, then the uninspiring box-office returns for Billu – his only release in 2009, and finally the humiliating decimation of his IPL team in South Africa. But, as the poet T. S. Eliot famously wrote, "For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice"... and SRK, I suspect, is secretly hoping that the next voice cinema audiences will listen to is going to be his in 2010. Or rather Rizwan Khan's, the autistic character he plays in My Name Is Khan, which is slated for a grand bi-lingual worldwide release in February.

Actually, the character in this ambitious film suffers from asp…

Small's the new big!

He may not have had the best year-end news with "Kurbaan" failing at the box-office, but Karan Johar is frank enough to admit that "Paa" has been the delight of the year for him. "I think Amitabh Bachchan took acting to another level in 'Paa'. That and the emergence of Ranbir Kapoor have been the highlights of this year," he says. Hopefully, he'll have a lot to speak about himself in the new year. There's loads of excitement in store for him as not just his Kajol-Shah Rukh Khan starrer "My Name Is Khan" will release in February, but it will also mark his return to television with 'Lift Kara De', a non-fiction show. It is from the big daddy of Hindi cinema, Yash Raj Films (YRF), that makes its way into television. Slotted for 20 weeks, the show will feature 20 super stars from Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, and Kajol to Kareena and Deepika alongside their biggest fans. The show, to be aired on Sony Entertainment Televi…

SRK: MNIK is hatke

The promos of My Name is Khan are all over TV screens. Shah Rukh Khan tells us how MNIK has helped Kajol, Karan and him evolve as people, actors and filmmakers and how religion has never been an issue for him."My Name is Khan is very different from the movies Karan has made before, and yet, he has preserved the Karan Johar-ishness he is known for. Karan, Kajol and I are close friends. We understand each other without even saying anything. However, a lot of times, Kajol and I were surprised with the way Karan wanted to shoot a scene, as it was different from the way the three of us have worked before. This was one of the most beautiful surprises for me as an actor, as a friend, as a viewer and as a producer. I am an insider, who can also see Karan's films as an outsider, and I can say that he has evolved tremendously with Khan, which is hatke and a step forward for all of us," says Khan about Johar, adding delightedly, "The three are magicians, and I am sure the film…

Every fan was crazy and obsessed about their favourite stars and it would be difficult for me to tell who was the craziest.What was the criteria of choosing a fan?This is a nation wide hunt, and the concept will be revealed only on the show, but whatever these fans did to reach inside the studio to meet the stars is really heartening.Who is your favourite star?My favourite star is Shah Rukh Khan and there is absolutely no question about …

Shahrukh, Priyanka, DiCaprio in a Hollywood film?

Legendary filmmaker-scriptwriter Paul Schrader is ready to begin filming 'Xtreme City', yet another Hollywood film set in Mumbai. But unlike Danny Boyle's 'Slummdog Millionaire', 'Xtreme City' will not showcase the grimy underbelly of the city."My film will not be a shanty film. Not like Slumdog Millionaire at all, thank you." Schrader said. In case you didn't already know, Paul Schrader is the screenwriter of such critically acclaimed films as 'Taxi Driver' and 'The Last Temptation of Christ'. Schrader said that his film will be the total opposite of 'Slumdog', and that it would show Mumbai at its colourful best. "I have scoured Mumbai and have looked at locations. But unlike Slumdog, my focus will not be shanties. Slumdog was too British...and too one-sided. Danny Boyle's film, well...It seems that India is boiling with poverty all the time. That is the way the West wants to see it. But my film will be differ…

Shahrukh writes well with Linc pen

Whether Shahrukh Khan used a Linc pen to sign on the dotted line when Linc Pen renewed its contract with the superstar for a further one year, may not be known. But what is known is that the company is very happy with its brand ambassador.

Buzz up According to the company's spokesperson, Linc's national share has grown and this year they are already growing sales at 15% as compared to 7% last year. It seems not just in films, Shahrukh seems to be in synch with the public even when it comes to Linc pens. So while on one hand a big cola brand like Pepsi has dropped SRK as their brand ambassador, the King Khan is still a mega favourite many other brands.

My Name is Khan can't compete at Berlin

With the good news comes the bad news as well. The good news is that Fox Star Studios, international partners on My Name Is Khan, has decided to premiere the film at the 60th Berlin Film Festival in February 2010, in the most prestigious Competition section.

However, the bad news is that they have not allowed the film to compete with other films in the section. The reason for the same is unknown.

Karan doesn't deny the news but pooh-poohs the belief that the global corporates are trying to bully him into submission. He says, "Yes, the decision to place our film in the Competition section without competing was taken entirely by Fox Star. Shah Rukh and I are completely one with it. We are just happy to be in the same section as the new films by Martin Scorsese and Roman Polanski. Fox Star has been on the same page as me from the start. Shah Rukh, Kajol and I are getting ready for Berlin. It will be the first full-fledged screening of our film. We are anxious to see how th…

The night was ‘Khan’tastic!

And here they were at this magnificent night! Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan made their grand appearances at Aamir's big night on Wednesday at a multiplex, SRK and Salman coming in solo, while the Chhote Nawab walked in with girlfriend Kareena Kapoor, the lady looking fab as always in a red saree. Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani looked as if they had smelt laughing gas, they just couldn't stop smiling at people, after all, it was their night as well! Aamir's wife Kiran Rao seemed to be in a Christmasy mood, dressed in a bright red top. Other biggies who made their presence felt here were Anil and Tina Ambani who came with their son, Sanjay Dutt looking dapper in a suit, Karan Johar, Yash Birla in a white ganji showing off his tattoo and Yash Chopra. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Mona Singh, Chetan Bhagat with wife Anusha, Jaaved Jafferi, Dia Mirza and Kunal Kapoor were some of the others who walked the red carpet that night.

Karan Johar is SRK’s biggest fan

Sony's new show "Lift Karade…' gives a golden opportunity for fans to meet their favourite superstar. The questioning will be done by host Karan Johar, but any guesses who is KJo's favourite? You are absolutely correct, it is Shah Rukh Khan."Of course, there are no guesses there. Shah Rukh Khan is my favourite star. I have a very special bond with him professionally and emotionally. I have grown up with him career wise" says Karan firmly about his favourite star.Everyone is aware about Kjo and SRK's closeness and friendship, so Karan did not have to stand in line for auditions to meet SRK, "I have been lucky to be associated with stars like him and Amitabh Bachchan. I have never had to do things that other fans have to do when they come on the "Lift Kara de' show" says an obliged Karan.For Karan and his new show "it's all about loving your favourite star'.

When two kings meet it usually leads to a war, but in Jashn 2010 – Dhamaka Naye Saal Ka, it led to celebrations. We are talking here about the moment Shah Rukh Khan came face to face with Chief Minister Ashok Chavan at an event, recently shot at the Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai.

It was raining stars at the event, as the entire Bollywood industry was present and presented exceptionally spectacular performances to entertain the Mumbai Police and their families. To add to the fun, ace director Karan Johar did a spoof on his own show and called it "Koffee with Kops" and what better way to do it than having the Badshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan as his special guest.

Shah Rukh and Karan were high on energy with their Q & As. In the final question, asked about his one wish from the Government, he said "I would request the Government to do as much as they can, in whatever way possible be it monetarily or socially for the welfare of the Mumbai Police and its fam…

Aamir Khan 3 IDIOTS premiere attended by Shah Rukh, Salman, Big B skips!!

Aamir Khan, the  perfectionist super star of bollywood  who had vowed to assemble all the three big Khans—Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and himself—of bollywood for the premiere of his latest flick '3 Idiots', succeeded when King Khan and macho Sallubhai made appearances at a multiplex last night.

Initially, it was Salman Khan, with whom Aamir Khan has an excellent rapport, made an appearance at the venue. Till the time Salman Khan was present, there was no sign of Shah Rukh Khan at the premiere of Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer '3 Idiots.'

However, as soon as Salman left, Shah Rukh Khan descended on the scene for a brief period, perhaps to keep the promise that he had made to Aamir Khan by confirming his participation at the premiere. Sources say that Shah Rukh Khan did not give much time at the venue as he had to go out of city with Gauri and children for Christmas vacation.

But, Amitabh Bachchan's absence was clearly felt at the venue. Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dut…

The fear of My Name is Khan

Shah Rukh Khan's next My Name Is Khan is almost two months away from release but the tremors of its run up are already being
felt. Films which were scheduled to release around a couple of weeks after February 12 are now likely to be postponed to a safer date. Talking about the release of his film Apartment director Jagmohan Mundhra says the film was scheduled to release in February. "However now that the big fat white elephant called My Name Is Khan is scheduled to release on February 12 we have to figure out a date which would be safer for a small film like mine," says Mudhra. Apartment is a thriller starring Neetu Chandra, Tanushree Dutta and Rohit Roy. Similarly many other producers are rescheduling the promotion campaigns of the film. Interestingly even Amitabh Bachchan's Teen Patti, which also stars Ben Kingsley and R Madhavan and has been directed by Leena Yadav, has also been shifted to February 26.

Shah Rukh Khan protects Asin at event

This is one incident that Asin Thottumkal won't forget in a hurry. At a recent event she was surrounded by around 300 people who had got too close for comfort. However, it was none other than Shah Rukh Khan who came to her rescue. Had Shah Rukh not intervened in the nick of time, this would perhaps have been Asin's worst experience in Mumbai.
An actor who was present there said, "The organisers had made a make-shift cubicle near the backstage where the stars were ushered in before they were supposed to go on stage. Asin was about to enter the cubicle when the incident occurred."She suddenly found herself surrounded by 300 people. She had only her spokesperson for company. Even as the duo was screaming for help, the crowd got within touching distance. Asin panicked when some over-enthusiastic fans tried to touch her on the pretext of shaking her hand. That was when Shah Rukh, who was supposed to go on stage next, intervened."He immediately ordered his bodyguards t…

SRK: Karan’s (films) complete me!

"This one is bigger than all the films Karan has made or produced before. He is a great director because he keeps us happy on the sets, he jokes around while he makes us work. MNIK wouldn't have been without all the production assistants, who did the running around behind the scenes," said SRK

"Khan (the film), according to me, is one of the nicest film stories I have participated in. I can take the liberty to say that I have participated in some of the best love stories in Bollywood. This film is a beautiful journey of two lovers. One is a physical journey; the other is an emotional journey to find love in spite of all the obstacles. At the end, like all love stories, these lovers cross all obstacles to come together. It is a very joyful film about hope, love and positivity. Karan has made a very different kind of cinema while retaining the Karan Johar-ishness that he is known for. I truly believe that Indian cinema and Kajol and my careers would have been incomple…

'My Name Is Khan' is hogging the limelight currently, while another Shah Rukh Khan flick is counting days to get on with its shooting schedule.Bannered under SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment, 'Ra1' is touted as a big-budget superhero movie. Starring Shahrukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead, this sci-fi will be directed by Anubhav Sinha. Interestingly, this film will complete the Khan-triplet for our sizzling beauty. With Aamir's '3 Idiots' releasing shortly, Bebo has 'Agent Vinod' with Saif besides 'Ra1'.It is heard that Shahrukh will rope in foreign designers to design his costumes and not his usual designer buddies like KJo and Manish Malhotra.'Ra1' is said to go on floors in February 2010, once 'My Name Is Khan' settles down well after its release in the Valentine's month. And if all goes well, then one can see this superhero flick before the end of 2010.

SRK on My Name is Khan

'My Name is Khan' is not only a big achievement for all of us for many reasons but also because Karan Johar is a wonderful director. He is a little intense but keeps us happy on the sets.  'My Name is Khan' is the journey of two lovers, Kajol and me. It's a physical and an emotional journey for me and I overcome all these obstacles. It is a film about hope. It is a film about love. What is special is that Karan has retained the 'Karan Joharishness' in the film despite it being a very intense one. This, despite it being a very serious subject. Karan completes our journey as an actor through his film. The film is also very special because Kajol took some time to give her nod as we had to coax her a lot. But finally she agreed to work with me and thus it is like getting the old team back.

The story

The film is about Rizwan Khan (SRK) who suffers from Asperger syndrome, a form of autism that affects social interaction abilities. The fact that they are recognising…

SRK or Sallu who will be first to feature on KJo's Lift Kara De?

While channel wants Sallu to feature first in Karan Johar's new show, the producers want SRK. Who'll blink first?

That is the big question. While the channel is leaning towards Salman (who hosts 10 Ka Dum for them), Karan and the show's producer (Yash Raj) would obviously prefer Shah Rukh to set the ball rolling

Lift Kara De premieres on Sony in January. It is one of the shows that marks Yash Raj Films' foray into television. It will have 20 episodes where B-Town's biggest stars meet and interact with their biggest fans.

While Karan has already shot for an episode with Priyanka Chopra last week, sources indicate there is an internal lobbying on which male star to shoot with first. Shah Rukh and Salman Khan are in the reckoning.

The source says, "It's a new concept and they want to open big. It can't get bigger than Shah Rukh or Salman. Since the channel has worked with the latter and is comfortable with him, they want him to be a guest before SRK. On the…

SRK: Not without my daughter!

The Badshah, who is known to be a very hands on parent, held daughter Suhana's hand while he waited for wife Gauri and her friend Sussanne Khan to finish powdering their noses. Those who saw young Suhana couldn't help, but notice how the little one was aping mom Gauri in her dressing style.

However it was dad SRK with whom she shared a terrific rapport. The papa's laadli left dad only to make a quick trip to the restroom. However the moment she was done, she rushed straight back into his arms. And, of course SRK was delighted. After all, the doting dad loves his kids and spends every minute that he can with them.

Shahrukh suffers Asperger's syndrome!

We have seen Shahrukh Khan playing a psycho character in movies like Darr and Anjaam.

Now, in his upcoming flick 'My Name is Khan', Shahrukh is playing a character of Rizvan Khan who has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. 

King Khan says, "In Asperger's syndrome, one half of the brain is more developed than the other. So the person ends up thinking very logically as the emotional side is not completely developed. That's the reason Rizvan has problems socialising and is afraid of crowds. In fact, people having Asperger's often find it difficult to show any emotion."

Shahrukh is very excited about the movie which is going to release in February next year.
