My Name Is Khan releasing in HongKong

My Name Is Khan releasing in HongKong  Jan 5,  2012


Bollywood megastar Shahrukh Khan sheds his dance clothes to play a man suffering from Asperger's syndrome, an extreme form of autism with a heart of gold and ingenuity for fixing things. After moving to San Francisco and marrying a beautiful wife, Khan seems to be on the track for the perfect American dream when the onslaught of 9/11 changes everything. When his stepson is accidentally killed in a racially incited assault, Khan goes on a one-man's odyssey across America just to tell the US President that "My name is Khan, and I'm not a terrorist."

The King is Back: Shahrukh Khan & Priyanka Chopra Sizzle in Don 2 (Movie Review)

What do you get when you add "King of Bollywood" Shahrukh Khan, witty writing, stylized action and a power-packed two and a half hours of entertainment? Farhan Akhtar's "Don 2″.For every ten Bollywood movies that make you want to roll your eyes in despair, you can rest easy knowing that the latest installment in the Don franchise will remind you of why you love Hindi cinema.The sequel kicks off five years from where the previous film ended, with Don successfully deceiving the police, the mob, and audiences around the world.

Taking us across Thailand, Switzerland, and Germany, and with Don's "jungli billi" Roma (Priyanka Chopra) hot on his trail, what ensues is essentially one sexy game of cat and mouse. This Don is bigger and better, not to mention sleeker and fiercer. Not only have the characters upped the …

Shahrukh Khan Says Don’s Inherent Evilness is Enticing

He began his career playing negative, angst-ridden characters but, 20 years into his career, Shahrukh Khan says it's the "irredeemable" quality of playing a character like Don that excites him today. In an exclusive conversation with Divanee.com, Khan discussed how Don is a significant departure from the villainous characters that made him famous in films such as "Darr" and "Baazigar". He also offered his take on what makes Don the first Hindi film villain the audience truly roots for:"Earlier I did more psychopathic, sociopath roles. With Don, you're not supposed to like him, but you do. As an actor, it's so enticing, and I think it's that enticement which I wanted to play into. There's an ideology with Don that he's always in full control of his actions, and therefore there's a lot of distance in the way I play Don vs. the way I played 'I Love You K-K-K-Kiran' (referring to his trademark negative turn in Yash Cho…

Shah Rukh Khan’s daredevilry

International stunt director Wolfgang Stegemann trained Khan in some daring fight sequences and created a special fight style for him in Don 2

Shah Rukh Khan has Pathani blood coursing through his veins. And for the first time, he is bringing that side of him to the fore with some hard-hitting action sequences in Don 2. Khan trained with international stunt and fight director Wolfgang Stegemann, who has worked in films like Inglourious Basterds and Valkyrie, and is known for his daring stunts and stylised action scenes. Wolfgang, who also plays a negative character called Karl in the film, created a special fight style for SRK. "These are powerful and effective to knock off Don's enemies. I had to analyse Mr Khan's motions and find the perfect fight style for him. It is a mix between martial arts, Krav Maga, Wing Chun and Trapping, which has not been practised in Bollywood. It helped him endure long settings of fights together," he says.

Shah Rukh Khan in Malaysian jail

Here's how he and the cast avoided being hypnotised by prisoners during the shoot With long tresses, an overgrown stubble and a rugged yet cool demanour, Shah Rukh Khan looks every inch a don. The flaming orange overalls add to the mood, as he packs punches with prison inmates in a fearless, muddy look. And this is no ordinary prison; the scene Don 2 - The Chase was shot in a real prison in Malaysia!

Director Farhan Akhtar is still reeling from the "strange and eerie silence" of the jail. The highly anticipated film is the first one to be shot in Malacca prison, and a complete section of the prison block was made available for the shoot. About 700 prisoners were air-lifted and moved to another cell to accommodate the filming.

And the Don's junglee billi Roma - aka Priyanka Chopra in a cop's role - was anxious to "break the rules". One theory doing the rounds was that the prisoners could hypnotise people, hence the crew was told to av…

Bollywood's king amazed by ongoing adulation

Shah Rukh Khan's career spans some 70 films and 30 years of movie-making His name may not mean much in the West but Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan is quite possibly the most popular movie star in the world. With Bollywood cinema reaching an estimated three billion people his following far exceeds that of Hollywood's stars. But after nearly 30 years in the business - and more than 70 films under his belt - 46-year-old Khan remains unexpectedly shy and still can't quite fathom why legions of fans commonly refer to him as the King of Bollywood. "I get amazed they call me that - and I think maybe deep down inside my heart I don't deserve all of this," he says. "I feel very grateful and very odd. I don't even know why people like me so much."
