Shah Rukh Khan is G.One in Ra.One

Shah Rukh Khan's character in the upcoming super hero film Ra.One is called G.One for Good One. "G.One stands for the good one & sustainer of life. To protect life he is ready to put his own [on] the line. Hope u all like him....will show soon," Khan tweeted on May 31. The 44-year-old actor, who has had to loose a lot of weight for his super-hero role, joked that he feels G.One could well stand for Gaunt One. "After losing so much weight i feel g stands for the gaunt one," he tweeted. The name of the film - Ra.One - is short for Random Access Version 1. The film targets kids and is about a superhero who can freeze electricity. Khan plays a Miami based software engineer named Shekhar, who as a video-game hero takes on his self-created techno-monster Ra One. The film, set in London, additionally stars Kareena Kapoor and Sahana Goswami. Kareena plays lead in the film, opposite Khan, as a young mother of an eight-year old. When he falls in love with Karee…

Karan Johar's inputs were implemented in Ra one

Karan Johar may not be associated with Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.1, but the filmmaker believes in lending a helping hand to his buddy's project.

While visualising SRK in the role of a superhero, KJo provided several inputs that were incorporated in the project. Says an insider, "Shah Rukh gave a draft of the script to Karan for his opinions. He read it thoroughly and suggested changes that were implemented."

No issues
Apparently, Ra.1 director Anubhav Sinha is aware of Karan's involvement and inputs in the story and had no issues. For him, the project is hugely challenging.

Adds the insider, "Karan's sensibilities and his way of working and writing has really helped Shah Rukh in his projects. It's been a good collaboration. So who else could visualise and provide inputs for SRK as a superhero?"

Also, as Shah Rukh is for the first time stepping into the realm of sc-fi and superheroes, he wanted to get everything just right. As the insider puts it, "S…

What’s cooking between SRK, Shilpa?

There's something cooking between Shah Rukh Khan and his former co-star Shilpa Shetty — and the whole unit of Ra.One is just grinning with delight

Shah Rukh Khan is all set for the London schedule of his ambitious project Ra.One. With shooting to start there in the first week of July, all logistic arrangements are being given the once-over to make sure everything is in place when the unit finally arrives in the city.

With food being such an integral part of the any Indian outing overseas, a very special arrangement has been put in place for the cast and crew. The meals for the unit — all authentically Indian stuff — will be delivered on the sets by a chain of restaurants owned by Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra in London.

Incidentally, the chain has as many as 15 restaurants and 12 takeaway joints spread over London. SRK's production house has assigned them the entire responsibility of feeding the unit during its stay there.

Shahrukh to board a local train

Shah Rukh Khan is in Goa shooting for his most ambitious film Ra.One. SRK is leaving no stones unturned to put the best in the film and now that director Anubhav Sinha wants to shoot in a local train he is getting one made.



He had the option of shooting at real sites but permissions and timings would be a problem, considering all that SRK got his art directors to build a brand new train for the movie.



It did take some extra effort for getting the train ready but it was certainly worth it. Now the team can shoot whenever they want as it looks as good as the real train.in reference to: "Shahrukh to board a local train"

SRK pulls out of IIFA

Even as there is much talk about Bachchans not getting attention IIFA this year there is one more celebrity who opts out of IIFA.and it's none other than SRK.Shahrukh has not been much of a consistent visitor to the IIFA. This year things were definitely looking better considering the fact that he had earlier asserted his presence in IIFA. However now the actor says he has too much work left to be completed and hence IIFA will have to do without him."Don't think I will be able to come for IIFA. Too much work here, will miss Colombo," he declared. While speculations about his abcence st such a big event are bound to arise the fact also remains that the actor is indeed busy with the shooting of Ra.One which has been going behind schedule. SRK in the meantime is quite stressed with all production related issues and is required in Mumbai.Shahrukh's friend turned foe,Salman Khan on the other hand will be making it to IIFA as the ambassador for charity.Source:http://mo…

SRK's gift to Anubhav

Shah Rukh Khan is a great producer and this comes as a testimony from all directors he has worked with right from Amol Palekar to Priyadarshan to Anubhav Sinha.  While they have admitted that never does the actor interfere in their creative processes he also takes care of his team like family. And this was seen when he gifted Anubhav Sinha a cycle. The director has been complaining about stress and no time to exercise. And when SRK got to know he just gifted the director a cool cycle which he can ride around the sets and also back home to maintain his work out schedules. "I was cribbing of lack of workouts because of shoots. Was cribbing of lack of time to buy a bicycle," says Anubhav adding that within a few hours SRK has 3 options lined up for him and he finally chose a cycle. "Rode back home on a bicycle!" he informs. SRK surely knows how to keep things cool!Source: http://movies.indiainfo.com/srks-gift-to-anubhav-1280376.html

Home truths of our celebritie

If you thought that Bollywood stars lead a regular life, then
you are wrong. A peek into their homes is enough to reveal
that their life is anything but ordinary.Take Mannat — the lair of Shah Rukh Khan — for example. "Sorry, nobody is allowed inside. I meet all my visitors here," Shah Rukh had said once smilingly when we had pressed to go and shoot inside the bungalow. Like Emperor Akbar had divided his court into two parts — Dewan-e-Aam (the durbar for the junta) and Dewan-e-Khaas (the special court) — Shah Rukh Khan's bungalow is also divided into two parts. His office is located at the Dewan-e-Aam where he meets outsiders. For Dewan-e-Khaas, you need an access card, which is only there with a maximum of 25 people, his close aides say.

Shah Rukh’s burning up the screen

A few days ago, Shah Rukh Khan tweeted about his bout of ill health. However, this has not kept the star from fulfilling all his professional commitments. The actor is busy shooting an advertisement for the toothpaste brand he endorses at Film City, since the last three days.
Shah Rukh was running a temperature of 104 degrees, but it did not let it hinder his shoot. SRK could have easily cancelled the shoot, instead he chose to complete the assignment. The shoot lasted several hours and required numerous retakes, which Shah Rukh gave patiently and without complaining. Since SRK’s co-star in the ad is child actor Keval, multiple shots were needed till Keval got it just right. But Shah Rukh played the perfect “dad”, encouraging Keval at every cut and keeping him entertained.
Now we know why SRK is called King Khan.in reference to: "Shah Rukh’s burning up the screen"

Expect professionalism from SRK

Bollywood ' King', Shah Rukh Khan, outdoes his counterparts in professionalism.Pepsodent toothpaste has a new face; the 44-year-old actor completed a shoot as the latest spokesperson for Pepsodent, regardless of his sickness.Khan arrived at Mumbai for three days to film "Pappu and Pappa". At that point, he was running a fever, nevertheless he chose to finish the shoot rather than risk his professional status by canceling it.A source commended the behavior of Shahrukh, as there were no complaints from him of the long hours on a set or the numerous takes. He acted like a dad to his child co-star Keval, encouraging him through the many takes until he got it right.http://www.freshnews.in/expect-professionalism-from-srk-185128

SRK's the babysitter!

Guess what Shah Rukh Khan was doing a few weeks ago? Playing super papa to the hilt.

Yes, he was baby-sitting Aryan and Suhana, while Gauri joined her best buddy Karan Johar in the US, who was already holidaying in his favourite New York City. She had girlfriend Sussanne Roshan for company, and they all caught up with the current toast of NY — yep, it's no Brad or Georgie boy of Hollywood, but our desi hunk Hrithik Roshan we're talking about. How cool is that, huh? On the home-front, we know that this is one role SRK loved playing more than any other. While he would do anything to play the perfect super-hero on-screen, we think he's already walked away with the 'Super-Dad' title. Take a bow, King Khan!

A big fat starry wedding!A big fat starry wedding!

Salman Khan was here and so was Shah Rukh Khan but the twain did not meet! The occasion? Mushtaq Sheikh's sister Najma's wedding to Annu.

The reason the two warring actors didn't come face to face was because Sallubhai had to leave early as he had a flight to catch and SRK was amongst the last to arrive at this star-studded affair. Bollywood was present in full strength as they came to be a part of the celebrations. Apart from Shah Rukh and Salman, the lovely Katrina Kaif made her presence felt here too. Rani Mukerji breezed in and breezed out. Looking every bit the couple in love were Timmy Narang and Eesha Koppikhar, who came holding hands.

Shah Rukh Khan wants beti Suhana to be strong, sporting!!

Shah Rukh Khan, the badshah of bollywood is a doting father to Suhana and Aryan everybody knows but only a select few know that King Khan has already started to train his daughter and her friends to be sporting and strong in nature to win the battle of life in future.



By his own experiences in life in the world and more particularly in bollywood, King Khan wants his daughter to be as solid as a rock to withstand the onslaught of future in this world when she would start going out and face the world on her own. Shah Rukh Khan knows that many a times in life you have just to bear and grin with stoicism and for that a rare mental strength is needed.



Even being sporting in nature is important to be able to cope with defeats and some odd situations in life which are likely to come regularly. In fact, the badshah of bollywood wants the girls to have the same stamina and power which he had imparted to his 'Chak De! India' team through his coaching in the film.

Shah Rukh lends his voice to KJo’s ‘I Hate Luv Storys’

Starting his modest innings in theatre, Shah Rukh Khan came a long way as he metamorphosed from a one-time soap star to the King Khan of Bollywood. Nevertheless, it seems SRK is following the footsteps of Big B, for the actor is all set to make his foray into dubbing studio.



News has it that Shah Rukh Khan will lend his vocals for Karan Johar`s much-awaited flick 'I Hate Luv Storys.'

Talking to a news daily, a source said, "It was a last minute decision to use SRK`s voice. Karan wanted a simple narration for the film. So, he requested SRK. It is believed SRK is not too keen on giving voice-overs. He has turned down requests by many filmmakers. But with Karan, it is different and he could not refuse."

"SRK`s voice will be used in the first five minutes of the movie when its lead cast is introduced," the source added.

Directed by Punit Malhotra, 'I Hate Luv Storys' stars Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor.

Speaking about the relevance of SRK's voiceover i…
