SRK loses to SRK

In times of recession, Eros International is hedging its bets on a money making director — Farah Khan, rather than bank on Anubhav
Sinha.

Farah's successful track record has put the brakes on Anubhav's Ra 1 temporarily. She will begin shooting her film Happy New Year ahead of schedule, while Ra 1 has been pushed from September to next year.

A few days ago, we told you how Farah Khan had to rush with the script of the first half of Happy New Year to San Francisco where Shah Rukh is shooting currently. It was a known fact that Farah was supposed to start her film only early next year. We hear, Eros International insisted that Farah's film should start this year, by the end of November.

Ra 1 is being presented by Eros International and produced by Red Chillies. It was slated to go on the floors before Farah's film, "That's true," says the source, "But when Eros studied the project Ra 1, they felt that this film may not derive sufficient return…

Shah Rukh Khan's 'Ra 1' postponed

Shah Rukh Khan has postponed his ambitious Sci-fi action thriller Ra 1 to next year. The delay will give him enough time to fully recover from his shoulder injury sustained on the sets of Dulha Mil Gaya, and be fully fit for the intense action sequences planned in Ra 1. The postponement follows a medical checkup that Shah Rukh underwent in the US where he is currently shooting for Karan Johar's, My Name is Khan, with co-star Kajol.

Shah Rukh out of action!

Shah Rukh Khan is in no mood to take any more chances with his health. His film, Ra 1 to be directed by Anubhav Sinha, will only go on the
floors next year as Shah Rukh has not recovered fully from his shoulder injury. As a result, the film will roll in mid 2010 instead of September 2009.

A source said, "SRK has been suffering because of his shoulder injury. He had injured himself on the sets of Dulha Mil Gaya a few months ago. After his surgery, SRK started shooting for Karan Johar's My Name is Khan, which he will soon complete. However, he decided to temporarily put Ra 1 on hold as he is required to do some serious action sequences in the film. SRK decided to push Ra 1 to 2010 after he recently went for a check-up in the US where he is currently shooting for Karan's film. After the check-up, SRK felt the time is not right to do the action film as there is quite a high risk that his injury will aggravate if he doesn't take it easy. Now, SRK has decided to first s…

And more so, if the filmmaker is Karan Johar, making a film on terrorism with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. Given the flurry over the actor's recent comments on Prophet Mohammad, Karan has gone back to his research books, lest his film, My Name is Khan causes any controversy.

Karan knows he's walking on glass here with his film and is taking every precaution to see that he doesn't cross the line. In fact, all filmmakers are putting in extra effort to make sure that they maintain religious and cultural decorum.

SRK says no to Gowariker

After burning his hands with Ashutosh Gowariker's Swades (2004) which flopped at the box-office, Shah Rukh has flatly refused to work with the Shah Rukh Khan More Pics director for his next venture. Ashutosh offered SRK a role in a period film with Rani Mukerji as his screen partner, but after Swades, Shah Rukh isn't taking any chances.

Apparently, working with Gowariker on Swades wasn't one of the highlights of Shah Rukh's life, but Ashutosh asked him to forget the past and start afresh. Ashutosh also offered him incentives to make up for the experience. Our source said, "Ashutosh even told Shah Rukh that they could co-produce the film and he had no issues with Shah Rukh's style of working on commission basis. But even this did not evoke a favourable response."

Shahrukh blames controversy on ‘writing error’

Shahrukh KhanMumbai:Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan yesterday denied he had "hurt the religious sentiments" of Muslims and said his comments to a magazine were misinterpreted due to a "writing error".
On Thursday, the Mumbai Aman Committee (MAC) filed a police complaint after its members read in the Time'N Style-Luxury magazine that Khan had listed Prophet Muhammad as one of the most unimpressive personalities in history alongside Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill.
But Khan said it was a "writing error" and that he had named the Prophet among the most impressive personalities in history.
"Obviously I think that there is no more important figure in history than Prophet Muhammad in the most positive way possible. Also, being a Muslim and standing up for the tenets of Islam is my most important agenda.

SRK denies 'Prophet' comment

Shah Rukh Khan has clarified that he has never said anything against Prophet Mohammed in an interview.

Shahrukh-Kajol creating trouble in US

The pair of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Shahrukh Khan and Kajol, are creating trouble on the streets of San Francisco, US. No, they are not throwing starry tantrums but pulling in crowds, thus making the crew of My Name Is Khan run from pillar to post to carry out their work.

With huge Indian population in the US, and Shahrukh being a popular face even amongst the non-Indians, it has become impossible for the shooting of My Name Is Khan to continue as scheduled. The situation has made acting even more tougher, as background sounds couldn't be used with noises of Shahrukh and Kajol fans filling the streets.

Well, the cast and crew of My Name Is Khan have to bear some more gruelling days in the US, as the shooting is yet to complete. Karan Johar must be having tough time handling the situation and that too away from home!

Kajol-SRK cause havoc in San Francisco!

It's the onset of summer in the US of A.
Shah Rukh Khan More Pics

And the west coast temperatures are soaring. But it's less to do with weather conditions and more because our stars have carried our Indian summer into San Francisco already. Yeah, it's the starry starry unit of Karan Johar's My Name is Khan, shooting in SFO that is the cause of the dramatic change in the city temperatures.

Apparently the team is having a tough time shooting there, and our sources say that this has been one of Karan's most challenging shoots ever. And we aren't surprised, shooting with Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol on the streets of SFO is no mean task, given the huge population of Indians there. Besides, SRK is hugely popular among other non-Indian communities, too. While all that attention is good, it's becoming impossible to handle the crowds and with the shoot being in 'sync sound', they have an almost impossible task getting it at one go without background sound…

Shahrukh Khan and Karan Johar going places in US

Shahrukh Khan and Karan Johar are literally going places in US while shooting their film 'My Name Is Khan'; first they managed to shoot on the premises of White House. Now it's the news room of CBS 5, a leading US news channel.

Bravo! Director-producer Karan Johar has taken his cast and crew inside the studio of a top American news channel, in San Francisco. The team of My Name Is Khan recently shot there for a crucial scene.

In fact, for this shoot, Karan took special permission from Stephanie Coyote who is San Francisco's Film Commission Director. Reports are that Karan requested the channel officials not to disclose the news about the shoot but unfortunately it spread like fire and many local Indians gathered outside the studio to catch a glimpse of the stars. But they didn't know that their favourites, Shahrukh Khan and Kajol were not part of the particular sequence which was shot there.

KKR dumps Buchanan: Sources

Beleaguered Kolkata Knight Riders have dumped their controversial Australian coach John Buchanan, according to team insiders.

Even as the KKR top brass refused to confirm the development, sources claimed that the Shah Rukh Khan-owned side today (June 17) informed this to the coach, who now stands sacked after the second edition of the Indian Premier League even though he had a three-year contract.

Source added the team was now considering Buchanan's likely replacement with names like Dave Whatmore, Steve Waugh and Lalchand Rajput doing the rounds.

When contacted, team CEO Joy Bhattacharya said he was not in a position to comment on this episode right now.

"At the moment, I cannot confirm the development," Bhattacharya said.

Certain Muslim groups have taken objection to Shah Rukh Khan's statements about the Prophet. The actor who is presently in LA says he was misrepresented.


He clarifies, "Obviously, I think that there is no  figure in history more important than Prophet Mohammad.

Also being a Muslim and standing up for the tenets of Islam is my most important agenda.... and if they have seen my interviews, etc on TV about Islam, then the people who are objecting, should realise that what has appeared is a writing error not a thought or view that I believe in.

Prophet Mohammad is the most important positive figure in Islam... and anyone who questions my view on that, is doing it for just creating a controversy."

HNY, Anu Malik returns to Farah- SRK camp!

The music of Farah Khan's directorial debut venture featuring Shah Rukh Khan, MAIN HOON NA, is still quite popular. Almost all the tracks including the techno-'qawwali' and the title track still feature regularly at functions.

However for her next, OM SHANTI OM, Farah Khan dropped the MAIN HOON NA composer Anu Malik and opted for the more up-market duo Vishal-Shekhar and the 'Dard-e-Disco' fever continues unabated! And now the news is that Farah has once again opted for Anu for his next venture featuring King Khan, HAPPY NEW YEAR. But there is a catch; Malik is one of the five composers including Vishal-Shekhar, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Pritam and Salim-Sulaiman.

But now SRK is all set to bounce back with a full-on actioner in Don 2.And there's Priyanka Chopra for company again.

Bipasha Basu who has been eased out of Race 2 firmly believes leading ladies don't have a future in sequels.

But here's one to prove her wrong . Though Priyanka has apparently been left out of Dostana 2 she's very much a part of Don 2 which starts shooting, finally, in May 2010 in Ireland and Berlin.

Shah Rukh Khan's bodyguard Yaseen Khan is getting married. And as a wedding gift, it is learnt, the actor is presenting him with a flat in Bandra!

A gift to remember

Says a source, "Ever since he began working with SRK over a decade ago, he has been travelling with the actor wherever he goes, including his overseas shoots.

Shah Rukh to take up anti-child labour campaign after Aamir’s refusal

Actor Aamir Khan has turned down the state government's offer to do an anti-child labour campaign. And now the government is reportedly planning to approach Shah Rukh Khan for the same.

According to our source, the Labour Ministry had been pursuing Aamir for over four months, as they believed the actor is ideal for the campaign.

Of course, there has to be logic behind everything Aamir does! The actor has reportedly clarified that since he's been doing a lot of government interest campaigns, his credibility would suffer if he spoke on every social subject.

Explaining his decision, Aamir said, "I'm doing a lot of public service messages and I didn't want to dilute the (message in the) ads that I've already done by doing another one."

The actor has done some public interest commercials of late like the election campaign and tourism promotion.
