Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar among top taxpayers

Mumbai: Bollywood stars seem to be reigning when it comes to filing the income tax returns.
Among celebrities, Shah Rukh Khan is right at the top having paid Rs 34.45 crore last year. Akshay Kumar comes second with Rs 33 crore but is expected to beat SRK this year as he has already paid Rs 4.5 crore in the first six months as compared to SRK`s Rs 3.5 crore.

Shah Rukh and Akshay are followed by Salman at the third spot. The Khan has paid an amount a little over Rs 14 crore last year and Hrithik Roshan is at No 4 having paid Rs 14 crore. Hrithik, however, has already paid Rs 3.5 crore advance tax this year in the first six months, with Salman lagging behind at Rs 2.5 crore in the income projection.

And, who is the surprise entrant into the top league this year? Well, it is none other than Aamir Khan at No 5, who quite interestingly has projected an income much higher than Salman and Hrithik. In fact, with Rs 3.5 crore worth of tax payments paid well in advance in the first half of this yea…

Priyanka and SRK in international film

American director Paul Schrader wants to make an out-and-out Bollywood film and he wants Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan to star in it.

He is all praise for actress Priyanka Chopra though his favourites are light-eyed beauties Aishwarya Rai and Kareena Kapoor. 'Her sex appeal is good enough for her to make it big on the international circuit. And she is very talented. I would love to work with her. I think she is the next big thing in Bollywood.' He wants to work to SRK, who hasn't agreed to star in his film as yet. 'Everybody knows about SRK's whims and fancies. He hasn't said yes to my film as yet, which is why the casting is still open and I will be meeting other actors.'

Schrader has watched 110 Hindi films and realized that there is a lot of sexual content in Hindi films. About his own Bollywood film, he says, 'It's a complete Bollywood masala flick, replete with the song and dance routine. Mushtaq Sheikh is my screenwriter. Indian films have…

Shruti Ulfat in Fauji 2..

It will be Shruti Ulfat and not Renuka Shahane, who will play the wife of Shahrukh Khan in Red Chillies' Fauji 2, on COLORS.
Shruti Ulfat makes a comeback to television with Fauji 2 (Red Chillies Idiot Box production), which is to launch on COLORS in early 2010.

Telly Buzz had earlier reported that Renuka Shahane had almost been finalized to play the wife of the elder Abhimanyu Singh aka Shahrukh Khan in the show. However, the latest is that Shruti Ulfat has bagged the coveted role, opposite the Badshah.

Confirming this to Telly Buzz,
Shruti Ulfat says, "Yes, I play Dr. Madhu Rai who is the wife of the elder Abhimanyu Singh which is to be played by Shahrukh. I am looking forward to working with him (smiles). Pulkit Samrat will be playing our son, and is the lead of the show".

We tried calling Renuka Shahane, but she was unavailable.

Kat: Who wouldn't talk to SRK?

Ever since Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan had their historic squabble at Katrina Kaif's birthday party last year, the girl has carried the cross of the untoward incident. And every time she even bumps into SRK accidentally, the media has a field day putting their meeting under a microscope. Katrina isn't complaining about this. But it is a matter of consternation for her.

In the last week, she bumped into the Badshah of Bollywood on two occasions — at Subhash Ghai's wedding anniversary and Sussanne Khan's birthday party, on October 24 and 25 respectively. And media reports that followed both events only spoke of her interaction with SRK, almost making it seem like an aberration. "I fail to understand why people must constantly focus on just one aspect of an event,'' says Kat. "I'm not complaining because I know that if you are in the eye of the media, it only means that you are important enough to them. However, my bumping into Shah Rukh or sp…

Bebo to be SRK's super-heroine!

Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor will be pairing up for the superstar's home production Ra.One. Shah Rukh is playing a superhero in the film.Though SRK and Bebo have sizzled in the item songs of Don and Billu Barber, but the last time they were seen opposite each other was Santosh Sivan's Asoka. The duo was also seen in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.If sources are to be believed, the leading lady's role is substantial. The project would go on the floors by the end of this year.Source: Hindustan times

Bebo in SRK's Ra.One

hah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor last did a film together in 2001, Santosh Sivan's Asoka.

Then relations apparently went bad between them because she refused to do Karan Johar's Kal Ho Na Ho over the price she was being offered. Since then, Kareena has done item numbers for Shah Rukh in Don and Billu... and sort of restored their screen rapport. Now comes confirmation that she's doing his home production, Ra.One, where SRK plays a superhero and does things like flying through the sky to save mankind.

But the leading lady's role is substantial as well and Kareena has scope to perform stunts like she's never done before. The project goes on the floors this December. Shooting will be held in the US until January, followed by a long stint in Mumbai.

SRK set to become Farhan's Don-2

Actor-director Farhan Akhtar has confirmed that he will make the sequel of his super hit film, Don. And, Shah Rukh Khan will be playing the lead role this time too

"I will be making Don-2 for sure. I will start it by September next year. The cast will be more or less the same," filmmaker Farhan told Headlines Today.

He said, "More or less the same cast will be there in the movie." So, Priyanka Chopra will be hunting for the don in the sequel too.

In fact, Farhan admitted that Don-2 would have been in the theatres had it not been for SRK's shoulder injury.

"The movie was supposed to go on the floors quite early. But due to SRK's injury it got delayed," Farhan said.

Farhan's Don had a very refreshing climax and surely Don-2 would have something even more interesting to offer.

Bebo-Saif replaced SRK-Tabu

Karan Johar had Kurbaan's plot ready way back in 2001. He had named the film Kaal and it had an entirely different star
Still from Kurbaan cast

The soon to be released Kurbaan could have hit the theatres six to seven years ago. Producer Karan Johar had the plot in mind and all the essential details were in place too. The original cast included Shah Rukh Khan, Tabu and Sanjay Dutt and the film was supposed to be directed by Nikhil Advani.

However, due to several undisclosed reasons, Karan could not make the film at that time. He went on to direct Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham in 2001 and later produced Kal Ho Naa Ho, which was directed by Nikhil Advani in 2003. Now, almost seven years after Karan first penned the film's plot, his longstanding dream Kurbaan has finally taken shape with Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi in lead roles.

SRK-Sunny patch up

Subhash Ghai ended the 16-year-long cold war between Shah Rukh Khan and Sunny Deol
on Saturday

Lately, Shah Rukh Khan might have had serious issues with several people from the film industry but the first actor who he had an ego clash with was Sunny Deol way back in 1993. Now, the two actors have patched up 16 years after they had a huge fight during the making of Yash Chopra's Darr. They finally buried the hatchet during a party on Saturday night and the man responsible for the patch up was host Subhash Ghai.

A source present at the party said, "Shah Rukh had come in earlier in the evening and he was sitting in one of the private sections at the party venue with Karan Johar and his other friends. Sunny Deol was accompanied by director Neeraj Pathak, who he was chatting with, when Ghai suddenly went up to the reticent actor and took him to the private section. Ghai headed straight to Shah Rukh and reintroduced the two warring actors.

Crores don't inspire Karan

Never mind that his production house Dharma Productions has just delivered a big hit in "Wake Up Sid". Director-producer Karan Johar says he has matured over the years and box office collections are no longer the only driving factor for him.

"Frankly, I am over and above box office today. With age and some dose of maturity coming in, I truly believe that I have grown as a filmmaker and hence I am not just looking at crores out there," Karan , 37, told IANS in an interview.

Karan has half a dozen films lined up for release in the months to come. After "Wake Up Sid", debutant Rensil D'Souza's "Kurbaan" is next. He is also speeding up Tarun Mansukhani's animation flick "Koochie Koochie Hota Hai" and "Dostana 2".

Siddharth Malhotra's "Stepmom" remake is already on floors while debutant director Punit Malhotra's "I Hate Love Stories" is in pre-production stage. Newcomer Karan Ma…

Aftab and director Glenn Baretto wanted Shah Rukh Khan to do the needful. Though they were hesitant whether King Khan would accept their request, they were in for a big surprise. "I went on the sets of My Name is Khan, and requested him that this being my first film, I would want him to do a voice over. He agreed immediately. For me that was such a honour," says Aftab. Director Baretto believes that SRK's voice has made a huge difference to the movie. "People don't need to see him to recognise his voice. It's right at the beginning of the movie and will hold the audiences' attention," he adds.…
