SRK refuses Bigg Boss 4, Channel offered him a larger remuneration than Big B.

Though the fourth season of Bigg Boss is around the corner the host for the show is far from being finalised. After hosting season 3 of Bigg Boss, Amitabh Bachchan will not be able to anchor the show again because the channel does not repeat hosts on this show.
Says a source, "Unfortunately the channel has a weird policy not to repeat hosts on Bigg Boss. Moreover, by the time the channel officials realised that it was difficult to get a replacement it was too late.

Big B had already committed himself to hosting season 4 of Kaun Banega Crorepati. So they consciously decided to look for another host."

The channel then started wooing Shah Rukh Khan since he is viewed as one of the very few people who can fill Big B's shoes.

But despite all their efforts, the channel's deal with King Khan has now fallen through.

Says the source, "The channel went all out to get Shah Rukh to host Bigg Boss 4. They even offered him a larger remuneration than Big B. But SRK co…

SRK gets best techies for Ra.One

The shooting of Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One is progressing in full swing in London. And the Bollywood superstar is taking care not to leave any stone unturned to ensure that the film has a crew that is the best in the business.

A unit source revealed, "Khan, along with Anubhav Sinha, has roped in the creme de la creme of Hollywood technicians. The stunts are to be seen to be believed. Whether it is an action shot or a car chase sequence,
the scenes are impressive."

Besides, Shah Rukh spells clout in London. "It's a well known fact that Shah Rukh owns a home in the UK. In fact on knowing that Khan was to shoot a major schedule there, the UK government has taken care to see that the shooting progresses without a hitch.

BOLLYWOOD JEEP STUNT DESTROYS LONDON BUS - Ra.One

A JEEP smashes straight through a London bus in an amazing scene in the capital.
But the drama was all a stunt for a flick called R.a.one, the costliest Bollywood movie ever made.
An insider said: "The stunt's expensive but worth it."





Who's taking care of Shahrukh's Ra.One?

Latest buzz doing the rounds is that discontentment among the makers of one of the most expensive films Ra.One over the flow of the script. Thus, Hollywood's screenplay writer David Benullo has been roped to make the script at par with Hollywood standards.  David was introduced to the film soon after SRK and his team felt the need of a Hollywood style to fill the loopholes in the script. In fact, screenplay writer has taken a few rounds in the Mumbai to ink upon the locations to become the backdrop of film.  David will give new dimensions to the script written by trio Shahrukh, director Anubhav Sinha and Mushtaq. Hope, all hard work pays off fruitfully for Ra.One which is releasing later this year. Source: http://movies.indiainfo.com/whos-taking-care-of-shahrukhs-ra-1435613.html

SRK rides Ducati is his latest sci-fi flick

Shahrukh Khan has always believed in doing things on a lavish scale. His premieres, his performances or anything that is public about him. Obviously, the same goes for his next venture Ra One. Shahrukh, who is also producing the film, is not leaving any stone unturned to make sure this film too is a grand one.Unit sources shooting in London are raving about how Khan alongwith director Anubhav Sinha is shooting the action scenes for the film with the help of Hollywood technicians. "The actor is canning car chase sequences and they are truly unbelievable — something that has not been seen in Indian films before. Shahrukh, who had this fascination of riding a Ducati after seeing Tom Cruise's stunt on a hot-red, super-nimble Ducati Hypermotard S in Knight & Day, made sure he would ride one in the film too," a source added.And that's not all. The amiable Khan is said to have the full support of the UK government to shoot the scenes without any hitch.

RA.ONE: Benullo looking after the superhero part of the script!

There is a lot of confusion about the contribution and role of David Benullo, a Hollywood screenwriter, in Shah Rulh Khan's under-production Anubhav Sinha directed RA.ONE.




view RA.ONE stills

There were rumours that not satisfied with the original script (by SRK himself, Anubhav and Mushtaq) Shah Rukh Khan had handed over the entire work to David, to get that Hollywoodish touch to the superhero flick.

However, that is not the case. What is true is that David Benullo did visit the various sites (in Mumbai) which would be part of the backdrop of RA.ONE to visualize it. Actually, Benullo is writing the superhero part of the collaborative script by SRK, Sinha and Sheikh and they are working as a team.

The much awaited RA.ONE is expected to release sometimes during the first quarter of 2011.

SRK to host Bigg Boss 4?

After Big B hosted the last season of Bigg Boss, SRK seems to be the next logical choice to step into his big shoes. Rumours mills suggest that Shah Rukh Khan will soon be roped in as the host of Bigg Boss 4. If reports are to be believed, Colors has completed all the formalities, and is waiting for SRK's final nod. The channel, however, is not ready to spill the beans before everything is finalised.

Sara Khan of Bidaai fame is reportedly finalised as a contestant on the show.

Well with SRK following the footsteps of Big B everywhere, we are not really surprised!

SRK lives life king-size!

Talk about being treated as royalty, this King commands it wherever he goes.

Last week, Shah Rukh Khan was in South Africa for the FIFA finals, and all that exuberance, hollering and cheering was quite a high for this sports buff, but it sapped his energy. He ended up with flu and bad throat, of course, the fact that the game was really over only paled his high spirits.

So, the hotel he was staying in left no stone unturned to pamper the superstar. When they heard that SRK wasn't feeling too well, they served him a special ginger lemon drink every few hours.

Their best chefs were put to work to dish out simple Indian fare like daal, chawal and sabzi to appease his taste buds. Such are the privileges of being the King Khan, huh? Live life king size, SRK! That's the way to be.

SRK following Tom Cruise?

Bollywood actors getting inspired from Hollywood is not a new phenomenon– from costumes to  characters, there have been several instances of 'similarities'.  Seems even the 'Badshaah of Bollywood' could not resist the temptation this time. SRK's famous tweet about him riding a Ducati is his forthcoming Ra.One came in at a time when Tom Cruise's stunt on a hot-red, super-nimble Ducati Hypermotard S in 'Knight & Day' is generating much hype in Hollywood.  Well, given SRK's fascination with the No1 tag in Bollywood, it is no wonder, that the superstar chooses to be inspired from the No1 in Hollywood!

"Taking kids for the matches (World Cup) in South Africa," Khan said on his Twitter feed ahead of the trip. "Soccer is beautiful...will play today if it rains.

We love you Bollywood, says Deutschland

Thousands of Germans queued up for hours in sub-zero temperatures to watch My Name is Khan at the recently held Berlinale, the Berlin International Film Festival and broke into thunderous applause inside the theatre as soon as they saw, 'Dharma Production' on screen!

A sight which caught festival delegate Dorothee Wenner by surprise. "I have never seen a German audience express themselves like that over the name of a production company!"

When Germans, known for their reserve, go berserk inside a movie theatre for a Bollywood film, it is time to sit up and take notice. Wenner, in fact, finds many German movie buffs, reacting in a whole new way, 'a typical Indian way' as a result of a Bollywood craze that has taken the German cinemaspace by storm over the past six years.

Today, Hindi films are all over Germany, from theatres to TV which are giving them primetime slots, to a flood of hom…

Shahrukh Khan: King Khan again with Ra.One

The Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan, who is currently in South Africa at the World Cup with his two sweet children is residing, and probably between the Netherlands and the Spanish national football team does not miss out on finals which will come, is truly the "King Khan" of Bollywood.This is the sympathetic Shahrukh Khan was not only familiar with his film "My Name Is Khan" demonstrate, but also with his new superhero movie "Ra.One", to which many fans of Bollywood films with SRK and looking forward celebrated Bollywood superstar already having a huge success.
While the superhero film "Ra.One is to be" almost shot and Shahrukh Khan allegedly on his return not many scenes in this modern, technically advanced film must turn, has now announced that Eros International is a rather impressive sum for the rights to "Ra.One have paid."
Thus, "is Ra.One" by and with Shahrukh Khan, as it were already spoken for and no later than early ne…

SRK goes on a safari

After Germany lost to Spain in the World Cup semi final, Shah Rukh Khan and his son Aryan were so depressed that nothing but an animal safari could lift their spirits. So they went to one of those exotic fancy ranches in South Africa where the rich and famous stay. It was a night safari, so King Khan and his doting son stayed up all night. Unfortunately though they didn't spot too many wild animals.They were especially very eager to see some lions. Did the king of the jungle keep away as he was intimidated by the King of Bollywood?

SRK’s designs on Gauri

Actor Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri Khan  is known for her impeccable style and flaunting designer wear, but that has incidentally become a dilemma for the actor. SRK, who is  in South Africa with his family for the final of the FIFA World Cup, is supporting Germany and tweeted, "Gotta go now & find german t shirts on the roadside...wife refusing to wear football jerseys...do they do designer stuff for world cup?

Here's why the star had to adopt this look

Shah Rukh Khan has just reached South Africa for the FIFA World Cup, and while he's excited about the big match ahead, the weather is something else. And the reason that SRK is all covered up is because he's cold!

The star just posted on his Twitter page, "In South Africa jo'berg..kids excited." He then posted the picture you see and added, "As you notice it is a bit cold here in jo'berg. My undercover extreme cold look."

When Konkona Sen Sharma saw the pic, she tweeted, "Haha! You look like a super hero :-)"

To which SRK replied, "Should have told me before spent so much on the suit I made for Ra.one...."

The cold that made him cover up hasn't affected his excitement about the game he loves though. And here's who SRK would like to see playing. "Would love to see Germany in the final..they have been so good. Holland is there already, me going there on 18th so wish them well too..."

Well, we'll know later today if…

Rs 300 crore riding on SRK

As flicks like Kites and Raavan, which were high on star quotient, failed to do well at the expectant box office, all eyes are now on King Khan. A whopping amount of Rs 300 crore is riding on his shoulders! The buzz in the trade is that Reliance Big Pictures has bought the rights of SRK's Don 2 from
Entertainment for Rs 125 crore, which is about Rs 25 crore more than what they purchased Kites for.
There is also talk in the industry of Eros International buying Shah Rukh's home-production Ra.One for a whopping Rs 175 crore.A leading distributor says, "Shah Rukh rocks. He is still one of the top three stars in this country. His film guarantees good returns. Yes, Reliance Big Pictures has bought Don 2 for an amount which is definitely more than Rs 100 crore. But I think that Shah Rukh's deal with Eros International on Ra.One could be a funding proposal, which implies that Shah Rukh can still sell the film to other buyers."Phew! That's a lot of money riding on on…

Check Out: SRK and Lalit Modi watching the FIFA World Cup Semi-Final

The football fever is on in full swing with the Grand finale of the World Cup 2010 scheduled to take place this Sunday. A lot of our Bollywood celebs are already in South Africa or on their way to be part of this sporting extravaganza.

Spotted at yesterday's semi-final match between Spain and Germany was none other than superstar Shah Rukh Khan along with his kids Aryan and Suhana. SRK was joined by former IPL chairman Lalit Modi who seemed to be enjoying himself. Lalit Modi tweeted, "Beautiful eve in Durban. Nil at half time" While SRK and his son were rooting for Germany, Lalit Modi was supporting Spain.



In the end it was Spain who emerged victorious much to King Khan's disappointment. SRK tweeted, "Germany my team lost...feel bad taking my lil ones to matches where our team loses...but one day insha allah we will win...trust me kids." Now that his favourite team is out, it will be interesting to see which team SRK cheers on in the big final this Sunday-…

Da.One

Agreed, Bollywood has lost crores this year because a lot of expensive films failed to retrieve their expected turnovers (Blue, of course, stands apart for its sheer wastage of money). But the biggest production companies seem to have blind belief in films that star Shah Rukh Khan. Nearly Rs 300 crore is riding on King Khan's shoulders.



Newsflash: Reliance Big Pictures has not hit rock bottom with the poor turnover of the Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai starrer Raavan. Neither has Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori's Kites debacle at the box office obstructed their soaring fund levels.

The buzz in the trade is that Reliance Big Pictures has bought the rights of Don 2 from Excel Entertainment for Rs 125 crore, which is about Rs 25 crore more than what they purchased Kites for. The deal has taken place even before Don 2 has gone on the floors, which implies that even in today's times when films are flopping days after their release, the buyers in the market have extreme faith…

SRK's Two Good For 'Ra.One'

Shah Rukh Khan's most ambitious venture 'Ra.One' will be given an artistic Hollywood boost. After Hrithik Roshan garnered big praise with 'Krrish', SRK is attempting the sci fi superhero genre and is sparing no effort to ensure a production with the highest artistic standards.

Reportedly, SRK has lassoed in two top Hollywood technicians: cinematographer Nicola Pecorini ('Fear'; 'Loathing In Las Vegas') and special effects expert Jeffrey Keisler ('X Men' series).

Says an 'Ra.One' insider, "The two have come on board and SRK and the entire team is very happy with the manner in which the film has shaped up. 'Ra.One' will resemble a glossyHollywood film and will be a visual treat. It's a difficult project as it will combine sci fi effects and state of the art visual effects."

Indian consulate comes to Shahrukh's rescue

Shahrukh Khan along with his kids finally reached South Africa some time ago. However, his excitement to gear up for FIFA finals was perturbed by South African consulates when he was stranded at the airport with nobody to own him. At last Indian consulate came to his rescue.   SRK tweets on the micro-blogging site, "In South Africa Johannesburg...kids excited…nobody to pick us at the airport and Indian consulate helped us. Thanks all at Indian consulate."Well, morning shows the day Shahrukh; anyway with Indian consulate coming to your rescue, things seem to be more smooth henceforth too. So, all we cay say is have a blast with kids.

Viva FIFA for Shahrukh and the Family

Football fever has hit tinsel-towners now. Apart from following each and every match a few of them are flying down to South Africa to watch the finals. And Shah Rukh Khan tops that list. SRK would be taking his kids Aryan and Suhana along all the way to South Africa.
