Aamir-SRK made for each other

The last few meetings with Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan will definitely make an interesting Bollywood
Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan movie.

The two actors "who still have personal unresolved issues," according to their own personal confession, have shown remarkable composure on the professional front, says a Bollywood producer to BT.

"Each of the United Forum Producers and Distributors meeting that these two Bollywood superstars have attended have once again highlighted that these two superstars have a crackling chemistry," says the producer, who attended the meeting to resolve the multiplex crisis at a film Studio, a week ago.

For example, when Shah Rukh turned up at 5.30 pm sharp, a puzzled Yash Chopra looked at him and said, "Arre, you're on the dot today," to which SRK said, "Oh I thought the meeting was at 4.30 pm, and I am an hour late."

Aamir gave a naughty wink because he had sent a SMS to SRK saying that the meeting was s…

Shah Rukh to continue scripting Linc’s success

Kolkata-based Rs 190-crore Linc Pen and Plastics is set to renew its contract with Shah Rukh Khan as brand ambassador. Linc Pen, one of the branded players in the Rs 2,100 crore writing instrument industry, had signed up SRK for one year in December 2008. Linc is said to have already commissioned Mumbai-based creative agency, The Republic, to make a new set of television commercials with SRK, which is likely to be aired from November.
"The association with Shah Rukh Khan helped us increase brand awareness and tap new markets. 'Trade confidence' has also increased significantly. We, therefore, thought of leveraging the association and are renewing our contract with SRK," Deepak Jalan, managing director, Linc Pens and Plastics, told Financial Chronicle.
Linc Pen is known for low-priced ball and gel pens. However, following the brand's association with SRK, the company forayed into the Rs 40-50 price segment. Without divulging the contract value with SRK, Jalan said…

Shah Rukh says sorry Ash

It's time to kiss and make up in Bollywood, according to reports Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan has patched up with the Bachchan bahu, Aishwarya Rai.

The buzz is that Shah Rukh and Ash became freinds at producer - director Karan Johar's birthday party recently. The two had not been on talking terms since Chalte Chalte days as SRK had picked Rani Mukherjee over Ash for his home production . Their relationship was further damaged when SRK was not invited to Ash-Abhi s wedding.

At Katrina's birthday bash last year it was SRK's comments on Ash that ended the SRK and Salman Khan friendship . The Bachchan family had cut all ties with SRK.

Apparently, Shah Rukh went ahead and said sorry to Ash, she was with her husband Abhishek Bachchan.

A guest at the pary has said that it was SRK who began the conversation and told Ash that he owes an apology to her because he had wronged her.

After this incident the Bachchans and Khans (SRK with his wife Gauri) danced and chatted the en…

Aamir-SRK try to end strike

Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan met again on Wednesday May 27 for another Producers Guild meeting at Taj Lands End, Mumbai. The core members including filmmakers Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt, Yash Chopra, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Eros International's Sunil Lulla and Amit Khanna of BIG Pictures were present for the same. Talking about a solution to the deadlock, Mukesh Bhatt said, "You will get good news in two days."It was quite interesting to see SRK and Vidhu Vinod Chopra leave together from the meeting which began at 9 pm and went on for over three hours. The two had fought via the media regarding the hijack of Raju Hirani. While Chopra had alleged SRK of doing it, SRK had denied vehemently. But now it seems that the big war has brought these two back together.Our source present at the meeting revealed, SRK was more involved this time and attentively listened to Amit Khanna who explained him the latest developments. Aamir was quieter. As soon as the meeting ended Aamir left befor…

No SRK in ‘Dhoom 3′

Perhaps Yashraj Production Company puts an end to a speculation.Till date, it was rumored that superstar Shah Rukh Khan would play a villain in Yash Raj Films' (YRF) action-adventure series 'Dhoom 3′ . However, the latest news from the Production Company is otherwise."This story is completely untrue and baseless. We have no idea where this rubbish originated but like all wildfires has spread rapidly," Rafiq Gangjee, vice president (marketing and communications) of YRF, told.Well! Then what's the truth!


SRK and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan patch up at KJo's b'day bash

Karan Johar's birthday party on Monday night was a night of patch-ups. Especially for the Bachchan boy. Vivek Oberoi and he hugged each other, he exchanged hellos with Karisma Kapoor and chatted at length with SRK.
But the surprise patch-up of the evening was between Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.



How things went bad

Says a source present at the party, "After Shah Rukh dropped Aishwarya unceremoniously from his home production Chalte Chalte, she never forgave or forgot that. Things between them got worse when SRK and Gauri were not invited to the AbhiAsh wedding.

But the final straw was reports of Shah Rukh having said unflattering things about Ash during a verbal war with Salman, last year.  While Salman maintained that SRK had made debasing comments about Ash, SRK swore that he had too much respect for women to demean them.

At the time, Shah Rukh had called the Bachchans' family friend Amar Singh and had explained to him that he hadn't said anything demeani…

Dulha Mil Gaya completes shooting, aims for September 18 release

Starring Shah Rukh Khan, Susmita Sen and Fardeen Khan, Dulha Mil Gaya is complete. It is already in the post-production stage and the final schedule, comprising a qawwali sequence, is being shot at Mumbai's Mehboob Studios. The schedule was pending since a few months since Shah Rukh Khan's shoulder injury prevented him for indulging in heavy-duty dance numbers. Speaking about the song, director Mudassar Aziz said, "The song has been sung by Amit Kumar and Monali Thakur. It has often been addressed as my tribute to Farah Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Sushmita Sen. Though I cannot reveal much about the song or Shah Rukh's look for the same, it's a fiery number to watch out for." Talking about the film's progress, producer Viveck Vaswani said, "In any case we had already begun work on post -production in parallel so there hasn't been waste of time, resource or energy. The film's dubbing too is 50 per cent complete. Sushmita should be dubbing soon, th…

SRK in Dhoom !

After much speculation over who will star as the anti-hero in Dhoom 3, rumor is that the Yash Raj Camp has finally zeroed in on Shah Rukh Khan. In the past, the likes of John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan have played the part of the villain in the previous two installments making this role, one of the most "coveted" roles in modern day Hindi cinema. Yash Raj, who is currently going through a dip in their films, are said to be going through a low phase, "Yash Raj Films have been going through a lull period as none of their on-the-floor movies or their completed ones are generating any curiosity from the buyers as well as the audiences. SRK has always been a quick-fix solution for the Chopra," claimed a source close to the camp to a leading publication.

According to sources, SRK has always been a "quick fix" to the Yash Raj camp. The last time the Chopra's needed Khan, he came out with
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. SRK was supposedly "approached" by the b…

SRK And Salman Join Hands??

Salman Khan probably feels it is high time he buries the hatchet between him and Shah Rukh Khan. I mean, half his family is on best of terms with SRK. Maybe, he figures, it's time he let bygones be bygones. What else could be the reason behind his decision to appear on one of SRK's shows.If reports are to believed, then Salman will be appearing as a celebrity guest on a show which is being produced by SRK's production house, Red Chillies Entertainment. The show will be hosted by SRK's good friend Farah Khan, who is also the co producer on the show. Called Tere Mere Beech Mein, the show will apparently feature Salman as the first guest. He hasn't shot for it as yet but is expected to do so sometime next month. Two episodes featuring John Abraham and Yuvraj Singh have already been canned. The show is expected to be aired on Star Plus from August onwards. So, is Salman going over to the enemy's side? Recently when Salman was asked if SRK would be invited as guest …

SRK rocks Karan's party

Karan Johar's birthday bash at a hotel in central Mumbai is the talk of the town.

Not only did Karan manage to bring in the famous — Shah Rukh Khan with Gauri,
Abhishek Bachchan with Aishwarya, Hrithik Roshan with Sussanne, Saif Ali Khan with Kareena Kapoor, Twinkle Khanna (minus Akshay), Ranbir Kapoor with Deepika Padukone, Imran Khan with Avantika Malik and the powerful — Tina Ambani and Parmeshwar Godrej amongst a bevy of other beauties and socialities, he also managed to make sure everyone at his party had a great time.

A guest says, "There was a lot of bonding happening; and rightly so. After all Karan's party was the last major do for the summer of 2009. Next, he and Shah Rukh leave for the US to shoot My Name Is Khan. They'll be gone for two months. That means Bollywood's most influential folks will not get a chance to boogie-woogie and bond till August.

After Aamir showed off his eight-packs in GHAJINI, it's time for SRK to flaunt his.
A film magazine recently reported that Shah Rukh Khan is now working to get an 8-pack abs. But for the moment King Khan is not ready to disclose his regime in details.

The curtain to come down sans SRK

The finals for the IPL season 2009 happened at Wanderers' stadium in Johannesburg. Like last time this time too there was festivities and artists from across the globe perform. But this time Indians has missed the presence of King Khan who did attending the function.The reason for King Khan's absence has been pointed on him not having free dates to attend the event. But there are also a few people who are suggesting that SRK's absence would be because for the below-the-average performance of his team Kolkata Knight Riders. Though sources close to King Khan reveal that his absence is related to his shoulder injury, there are a lot of comparisons being made when the Khan performed in a wedding recently, during the end of April. Yet a few other sources close to SRK reveal that he is busy completing his film and hence not having time for events.Whatever be the reason the fans of Shah Rukh Khan will miss him terribly this year, with just a few celebrities of Bollywood making th…

'Shahrukh is a bundle of energy'

Despite nursing a shoulder injury, Shahrukh Khan shot for producer and good friend Viveck Vaswani's film Dulha Mil Gaya , which had been stuck because SRK portions needed to be shot.

Viveck Vaswani is a happy man today. His much delayed film 'Dulha Mil Gaya' is completely shot and ready to go into post production. Over the period of last two years the film has been getting delayed for many reasons, but recently when SRK hurt his shoulder and underwent a surgery it looked the movie might take another six months to complete. But SRK, who plays a cameo in the film, has surprised everyone, the film's producer the most.

"The moment he thought he was ready, he came for the film's shoot. He could have rested, but he chose to finish the film first. I had always left it to him to decide when he wanted to shoot," Vaswani is quoted by a news agency.

Vaswani went on to add that SRK is a bundle of energy.

"With these three days of shooting, Shah Rukh has now c…

Shahrukh Khan in talks to play an anti-hero in Dhoom: 3

After the super-success of the villain (John Abraham in Dhoom, and Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 2), the part of the anti- hero has become the most coveted role in B-Town.

Name-tossing

Every now and then, big names are being tossed around as being nearly signed for this role and now the latest rumour is that Shah Rukh Khan will feature in the role in this action thriller.

A source who claims to be in the know swears, "Yash Raj Films have been going through a lull period as none of their on-the-floor movies or their completed ones are generating any curiosity from the buyers as well as the audiences. SRK has always been a quick-fix solution for the Chopras.

When- ever their mega boat is rocked, good friend Adi Chopra calls on SRK and the actor steps in to bail out his dost." This last happened with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. 

Now an insider claims claim that SRK has been approached by the banner to play the main villain in  Dhoom 3, "Last week, SRK was called in for a tentative one-li…

Shahrukh Khan On Twitter? Probably Fake

Just sometime ago I had written about Mallika Sherawat and Gul Panag being on twitter, however those profiles are absolutely true and real, unlike many of the other parked handles used by hoax persons for different bollywood superstars.Just came across a profile on twitter that is supposedly from Shahrukh Khan himself, however there is no real way to confirm this, the so called Shahrukh twitter profile can be followed at @shahrukh_khan.Most of the tweets are vague, some are related to his work, however that kind of information can be easily obtained by a simple search on Google.The surprising thing about the Shahrukh Khan profile is that, he seems to be following more people than those who follow him back, this is however a bit strange for other big celebrities on twitter, who are not known to follow back a whole lot of people.Also Shahrukh's profile was created back in August 2008, however the first tweet was only on Jan 28th this year. I must say at that point twitter was not th…

Shah Rukh back on screens September 18th

We last saw him in two roles in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and as a superstar in Billu. Next up is Dulha Mil Gaya and though it is still a long wait Shah Rukh Khan will be back on the silver screen on September 18th. Producer Viveck Vaswani has confirmed that 100% of the filming is done, all that is left is the final dubbing. "So now let me state on record that 18th September is the day when my film arrives. I can assure that it's going to be one BIG festival movie. Dulha Mil Gaya is about celebration and the release timelines for the movie should further aid that," Vaswanit told Joginder Tuteja.

Despite still recovering from his shoulder surgery, Shah Rukh completed his work on
Dulha Mil Gaya, shooting for three days and three nights. Speaking to IANS Vaswani said, "The moment he thought he was ready, he came for the film's shoot. He could have rested, but he chose to finish the film first. With these three days of shooting, Shah Rukh has now completed his entire port…

SRK and Kajol together?

We had earlier reported that director Vivek Sharma of Bhoothnath fame will direct two of the biggest stars of Hindi films, Amitabh Bachchan and Mithun Chakraborty in his next (after Kal Kissne Dekha that is awaiting release), Buddham Sharanam Gachchami. And now, here�s the latest scoop --- the film might have Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in its cast too. �The film is dealing with complex emotions, which is not easy for everyone to portray and hence this cast that I am closing in on,� says Sharma, who adds that Buddham� will bring revolution into the society and it will be one of its kind. �Neither Indian nor world cinema has witnessed this kind of a film before,� informs Sharma, whose company, Filmzone is producing the movie that has an estimated budget of over Rs 50 crore.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan was slated to shoot just a qawaali for upcoming film "Dulha Mil Gaya", but he shot a special promotional track for the film as well. And he finished his portion within three days despite nursing a shoulder injury.Producer Viveck Vaswani is all praise for Shah Rukh, who volunteered to shoot for the film even though his shoulder injury hadn't healed completely."The moment he thought he was ready, he came for the film's shoot. He could have rested, but he chose to finish the film first. I had always left it to him to decide when he wanted to shoot," Vaswani told IANS."With these three days of shooting, Shah Rukh has now completed his entire portion for the film.

He just breezed through his part and before we knew, we were done," he added."Dulha Mil Gaya", which is directed by Mudassar Aziz, stars Sushmita Sen and Fardeen Khan as the protagonists.Vaswani is happy because the shooting of…

Success comes by chance: SRK

Shah Rukh Khan's Knight Riders may have failed to create magic, yet again, but King Khan takes it all in his stride.



In fact, he cites his team's ouster from IPL 2 as a life lesson. He has no plans of giving gyaan like a guru; nevertheless, he did a good job when he pep-talked the audience at the Delhi chapter of the Young Presidents' Organisation here on Thursday.

Talking about the event, a source present at the function says, "YPO has members in almost 85 countries. Every year, they invite people from different walks of life to interact with the members. This year, it was Shah Rukh, since he's been very successful in his life and the members were all ears when he spoke on what success meant to him."

Talking on his favourite subject – success – SRK says, "Success is never final, just like failure is never fatal. Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared. Fear failure so much that you get the c…

Born on the 2nd of Nov 1965 in Delhi to Lateef Fatima and Taj Mohammed Khan, Shahrukh Khan has more than lived up to the literal meaning of his name – "face of a king."He is Hindi cinema's reigning royalty.Exclusive and elusive, yet charming and charismatic are just some of the ways to describe Shahrukh Khan. The name itself invokes power, passion and panache – the stuff superstars are made of. Behind the façade of the dream machine and the very intimidating oft daunting personality (even Aamir Khan called him charming), is a middle class Delhi boy who grew underneath the charade…

Shahrukh Khan on the cover of Blender

The 'King Khan' of Bollywood never fails to make heads swivel, be it when he sets the screens ablaze with his performances or off screen with his charisma and quick wit. This month's issue of the music and entertainment magazine 'Blender' features the 'Baadshah of Bollywood' Sharukh Khan on the cover.

The May issue of 'Blender' gives The Reader a glimpse into the life of the ever busy and bubbling SRK, and even talks about his well known skill of multi-tasking. Throwing other facts like SRK being the star with the maximum number of endorsements under his belt, the issue evidently becomes a must buy. Also, in this exclusive interview, SRK talks about his IPL experience which has now become a hot favourite topic of discussion.

Adding to this already heady concoction of gyaan from the Bollywood sovereign Khan, are some of rock world's best kept secrets and behind the scenes with rock's greatest groupies. With all this rolled into one, the May i…

It's confirmed. Dulha Mil Gaya would be releasing all over on 18th September. This would give the film a four day extended weekend since the festival of Eid falls on Monday, 21st September. Producer Viveck Vaswani is certainly heaving a sigh of relief as for the first time ever; he goes on record with the exact date of release. "I had always maintained that it is producer's prerogative to announce the date of his film's release. Over last so many months, there were so many out there announcing the film's arrival on my behalf. It was annoying initially but later it just started amusing me. There were so many different dates floating around even when I had never gone on record to talk about the exact date", says Viveck who is still not resting after the completion of a hectic final schedule of Dulha Mil Gaya. He goes on to add, "So now let me state on record that 18th September is the day when my film arrives. I can assure that it's going to be one BIG…

SRK gets in shape for James Bond.

 Shahrukh Khan is getting in shape for Bollywood's version of 007.Shahrukh Khan is at it again. After getting in shape for Farah Khan's "Om Shanti Om," the most popular actor is all set to shape up his body once again for Anubhab Sinha's "RA-1."According to sources, the movie is a superhero flick with loads of special effects, gizmos, and gadgets very much like the James Bond movies. It will be different from a typical Bollywood movie. On SRK's request, Hollywood writer David Benullo will write the scripts because he needed someone who could do justice to a superhero full of effects script. Benullo has written the screenplay for "Around the World in 80 Days" and the script for "Hallowed Ground," "Cupid," and "Shadow Man," which had won the International Fantasy Film Award in 2006.Director Anubhab Sinha has confirmed the news, but he refuses to divulge any more information. The movie is scheduled to release ear…

Saif replaces Shahrukh in Yashraj's Dhoom 3!

SRK's loss might be Saif's gain when it comes to the next Dhoom installment. Yash Raj has been trying to get the third version of their successful franchise, on the floors for quite some time now and Adi Chopra has finally settled on the script.

But like most Yash Raj projects, even before the script is ready, they are engrossed in the stylisation and casting of the film. Since it was the baddies, John and Hrithik, who stole the show in the last two flicks, the Chopras wanted to go bigger and better this time. So they could only think of Shah Rukh Khan to play the lead. But SRK, after his shoulder surgery and the regular strain on his back, has decided to not do movies with excessive action scenes. That effectively rules out Dhoom 3 for him.

He has apparently conveyed the news to the banner, adding that he won't be able to give dates till late next year.

Since the Chopras wanted to it to be a quickie project, with a strong hero, who'd have dates at his disposal, they …

Farah pays price for writing script on paper

After Farah Khans daughter Anya tore her films script starring SRK, the director has sworn to get tech-savvy


Farah Khan had to pay a heavy price for not being computer savvy. Last week, her daughter Anya tore out three scenes from the script of her forthcoming film starring Shah Rukh Khan. All the scenes were crucial and had Shah Rukh in them, naturally. Her daughter is not an avid reader, for she is merely a child still. So it wasnt for offending her sensibilities that the pages from her screenplay-inprogress were ripped apart. These were merely playthings to Anya, an illusion that has cost the director much grief.

The incident in question happened at her flat at Seven Bungalows. Farah had completed writing three scenes on that particular day. She had left the papers on the table and had left the room (writers block) . When she came back, she found that the papers had been torn. Thats when she realised that her daughter Anya who was playing in the room was responsible. Horrifi…

Gauri designs for Arjun Rampal!

Guess who's designing one part of the restaurant-cum-lounge that Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jessia are opening in Delhi coming July?

Bollywood style icon and Shah Rukh Khan's wife, Gauri Khan. Arjun told BT about his well-kept secret, "Gauri and Nandita Mahtani will design one of the tables, Tarun Tahiliani and Rohit Bal will do one each, and the fourth will be done by me. Mehr will be in charge of the entire club, but the idea of having these four specific designer tables by popular celebrities is to give the club an added advantage.''

The party place is expected to be visited by the biggest names in Bollywood including Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar. And its novelty, in keeping with international club culture, is that four specific tables will be designed by four renowned designers. Arjun, who would not reveal more, added that everybody was working on their corner. Gauri's table is likely to include designer crockery or glassware especially designed/…

David Benullo roped in for SRK film

Shah Rukh seems to have got a good catch with David Benullo when the latter nodded to be a part of SRKs project. If you still do not know who Mr. Benullo, he is the guy responsible for scripting the screenplay for fantasy flicks like Around the world in 80 days, Shadow Man etc.

The film is titled Ra.1 and it will be be SRKs next production. This project sees director Anubhav Sinha calling in the shots. The film is rumored to have a heavy dose of special effects that have not been so far seen in Bollywood films. Grapevine has it that king Khan was looking for a person who would be apt for the script. And if King Khan decides to do something he does it in style.

As the name suggests Ra.1 is not the kind of film with the usual Bollywood formula and needs to be treated differently. This project might hit theatres early next year.

One thing is for sure, it …

Shah Rukh Khan Bangaya James Bond

King Khan goes a-way lot unparalleled from other superstars of Bollywood. Splendidly, he's been a master of experiments picking exceptional roles as well scripts. Be it 'Don', 'Chak De India', 'KANK' or his recent 'RNBDJ'; you'll find more substantiality with classy factors. Perhaps, he's got whole lot of similar projects gearing up fast on heels. 'My Name is Khan' depicts him as a smart chap affected with Asperger's Syndrome while sequel to 'Don' brings you SRK yet more sleek and stylish.More than all, the most electrifying part is that SRK is all set to go the way of James Bond.

Shah Rukh Khan is going the James Bond way for his next project, RA-1, directed by Anubhav Sinha. 

A source reveals, "RA-1 is a superhero flick with special effects, gizmos and gadgets just like in 007's films."

The source adds, "SRK will be going a strict diet and wants to get into a killer shape before he begins shooting for RA-1." The film is slated to go on the floors in September. The project was pushed back due to the surgery SRK had to go through for his shoulder in February.

Karan Johar takes 'My Name Is Khan' to Cannes

Planning a grand global release for his next directorial venture 'My Name Is Khan', Karan Johar is at 62nd Cannes Film Festival, negotiating with foreign buyers.

The man knows that the film festival in Cannes can prove to be a big platform for his films. He promoted his Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna there a few years back, and now's he's taken two films, My Name Is Khan and director Rensil D'Silva's Jihad (both Johar's home productions) to Cannes. The festival has a special Market section and Karan will do active promotions to sell the international rights of the two movies to foreign buyers. The director is learnt to be in talks with some of the big foreign distributors and international studios.

Besides being a director, Karan has taken up production seriously. Dharma Productions has given various hits and its movies are well accepted overseas. So tapping a wider market at Cannes makes complete sense. However, this time Karan is also an official invitee to th…

'I can be fun,' says Anushka

You would have thought, after a debut like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi opposite Shah Rukh Khan himself, the tall and strikingly attractive Anushka
Anushka Sharma Sharma's life would have changed 360 degrees.

Not really. That's because she was determined from the start not to let her Bollywood status go to the head. "This isn't the real thing, you know," she said, after making sure BT had got her name ("everybody spells it wrong") right! "I am a more grounded person today. Everyone appreciated my performance in Rab Ne..., but I am striving harder already."

There is much similarity between her and Deepika Padukone. Both girls are far too tall for Bollywood's leading pack of actors (well, the Khans actually, give or take an Akshay, Hrithik, John and Abhishek), and both have ramp model-to-silver screen backgrounds, not to mention debuts opposite SRK. "I don't compete keeping someone else in sight," said Anuskha who is getting ready fo…

Knights gift SRK surprise holiday

Johannesburg, May 15: If the Kolkata Knight Riders had played the way they had expected to, Shah Rukh Khan would have been here today in the "City of Gold" to be with his men in black and gold.SRK had planned to return for the Knights' last three matches and stay on till the May 24 final at the Wanderers. But thanks to the way the team has performed, he is not coming."Shah Rukh was always supposed to leave at the end of April regardless of how we played in the first four matches," team director Joy Bhattacharjya said. "He had promised to rejoin the team from mid-May, only if they did well. Juhi Chawla was to come with him."As were many of the celebrity supporters who were at Eden Gardens last year — among them director Farhan Akhtar and musician Vishal Dadlani. "The turn of events is really disappointing," Vishal said. "But I'm sure SRK and KKR will bounce back big time. I have absolute faith in his ability to inspire."Well, Sh…

Shah Rukh Khan's cool Quickgun Murugun act in Om Shanti Omhas inspired Telugu actor Rajendra Prasad to do a film on SRK's  character! A spoof, the film will be in English.

We are exploring the possibility of building it into a franchisee brand," said Vijay Singh of Fox Star Studios.In Farah Khan's  blockbuster OSO, Shah Rukh [played a popular actor.

In fact, his 'Yana rascala' became a huge hit.Will Rajendra Prasad's Quickgun Murugun become a big hit too? Let's wait and watch.Source: TOI

To get over KKR’s doom, SRK finds solace in Roosevelt!

KKR seems a lost battle for owner Shah Rukh Khan. Not only is his team out of semi-finals in the IPL but is also making headlines for its off-the-field drama.

Cricketer Ajay Jadeja's recent shocking revelations about a racial drift existing in the team has opened doors for further criticism and need for investigation in the team.

In times of crisis owner Shah Rukh too has stopped attending KKR's matches. He has let coach John Buchanan do all the talking for KKR's unending string of defeats at the IPL 2009 instead. However the superstar owner of the team has not stopped writing to his team. In his latest blog he has quoted none other than late American President Franklin Roosevelt.

"It is not the critic who counts;

Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,

Or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,

Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and bloo…

Karan's at Cannes with Khan!

Joining the Bollywood brigade in Cannes for the film festival that started yesterday is Karan Johar.


"Anything to grab many more eyeballs," says the dapper Bollywood filmmaker who's hoping to negotiate a mega global release for his Shah Rukh Khan starrer My Name Is Khan and the Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor film Jehaad with foreign distributing giants.

Karan will be pitching his own tent at the Market Section of the 62nd Cannes Film Festival between Saturday and next Tuesday to sell the world rights of his films. But, before that, he is slated to make a grand entry by walking the red carpet as one of many hotshot international celebs at the prestigious event for a lifestyle brand. Then only, will he be free to get into the private meetings set up with international studios.

"The Indian presence at Cannes has always been tremendous but now, with the world waking up to Indian cinema, we are only growing further. It's great to see the exchange of ideas at vari…

Shahrukh's Happy New Year to take off this year

Director Farah Khan is miffed with the reports that her next ambitious film Happy New Year starring Shahrukh Khan has been postponed to next year. The fact is that she is determined to start the film this year.

Farah said that she would start Happy New Year this year, come what may. She added that she is working on the script and is very sure that she would begin the film this year even if it's December 31st. She is finding hard to understand how people spread such baseless rumours.

Happy New Year has been in the news since it was announced for the simple reason that Farah's films with Shahrukh, Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om did very well at the box office. It will be her hat trick hit with Shahrukh if it does well.

Watch out for the 'sure success' combo!

Farhan Akhtar, SRK and Aamir bond with their betis

Then there's Shah Rukh. After bonding man-to-man with son Aryan for years now it seems Shah Rukh Khan is determined to forge an equally strong rapport with his daughter, Suhana.

 Last week, when Shah Rukh visited Karan Johar's mom and Adnan Sami's father in hospital, it was not his wife or son but Suhana who accompanied the star.

Says a source close to SRK, "Suhana has always been closer to her mother (Gauri) while Aryan has been his papa's pet. Shah Rukh wants to change that. He's making a determined effort to spend quality time with Suhana."

 According to close friends,  Shah Rukh has been a boys' boy, a gadgets guy all his life. The delicate dainty girlie things have been beyond Shah Rukh's realm of understanding, let alone appreciation.

Mumbai: There's more father-daughter bonding going on in Bollywood than meets the eye. As soon as Kartik Versus Kartik wraps up, Farhan Akhtar will take time off to be with his eldest daughter.

Says Farhan, &quo…

Shah Rukh to give IFFA a pass?

Just when I was beginning to believe that cock and bull story of SRK-Big B rivalry ending I was told this: Shah Rukh Khan has planned his annual vacation in such a way that he won't be able to attend the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards. And if one notices it has almost become a ritual of sorts every year.
Now the awards ceremony is said to be the bastion of the Bachchans. And that's reason enough for Shah Rukh Khan to avoid it as diplomatically as possible. But when Amitabh Bachchan publicly expressed his desire to invite SRK, everyone's ears perked up!A little birdie tells me that Big B has also kept his word and sent out an invite to SRK. Needless to say our man has already found a suitable excuse.Apparently SRK plans to vacation with his family in London for some 10 days. I am also told that he will address a select section of the media there before going to an undisclosed location after that.
And what is so unusual about this? Well SRK, I am given to bel…

Fans root for mystery IPL blogger’s identity, vote in thousands

May 12th, 2009 - 4:04 pm ICT by IANS - By Anik Basu
New Delhi, May 12 (IANS) Even as the general elections head towards a climax, there's another poll unfolding - in cyberspace.
Between Saturday and Monday evening, nearly 29,000 readers of fakeiplplayer.blogspot.com - an Indian Premier League (IPL)-related blog that has spawned a cult following within the country and the Indian diaspora - have cast their vote to decide whether the mystery writer should reveal his identity or not. The unknown blogger may not have turned out even once for his Kolkata Knight Riders team owned by actor Shah Rukh Khan, his rib-tickling posts have endeared him to thousands of fans, and attracted coverage by prestigious newspapers such as Britain's Telegraph and Independent. "You rock, dude", is one of the most common refrains among fans, an overwhelming bulk of whom now wants to know who the cricketer-writer is, or if he is a cricketer in the first place, given his "mastery" o…
