HC throws out "frivolous" petition against SRK

The Bombay High Court today dismissed a PIL against Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan for alleged violation of construction norms as "frivolous" and imposed a cost on the petitioner for wasting its time.

Activist Simpreet Singh had filed a PIL against the actor alleging that a building, an extension of his bungalow "Mannat", a heritage property, had been constructed in gross violation of Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) and other rules.

A division bench of Justice P B Majmudar and A Sayed threw out the PIL after observing that the petitioner had targeted the film star only for publicity. "There are so many buildings in the same line as Shah Rukh's building. Why have you (petitioner) taken an objection against only this building? Simply because he is a film star?," the bench asked.

According to the petition, the place where the building stands was reserved for an art gallery. The state government, however, informed the court that the reservation…

SRK at Zor ka Jhatka's launch party!

Shah Rukh Khan proved that he is the ultimate entertainer as he brought the house down at the launch of his show Zor ka Jhatka on Imagine.

The party held at JW Marriott also marked the completion of three years of the channel. The actor was at his charming best and wooed all the gals. Saumya Tandon even got a peck on her cheek from the Badshah. But that doesn't mean that our telly guys went completely ignored. We saw Akashdeep Saigal posing with some hotties. Shabbir Ahluwalia too had a great time catching up with his pals at the do.

Mink, Narayani Shastri, Hanif Hilal, Karishma Tanna, Dheeraj Kumar, Goldie Behl and Vrajesh Hirjee were among the other guests seen having a great time.

SRK is a man of few words

Gooood morning my yummy chocolate pies! How goes it this morning? I'm delighted to be back after a short break and feel ready to tell you what's happening in Bollywood's glamour bylanes. For starters, Sher Lock Holmes has dropped in to tell me that he's in awe of King Khan...I mean Shah Rukh Khan. Turns out that Holmes and Khan have been exchanging emails and mobile messages  and now, Holmes, for the first time in his life, has become a fan of an actor. When I prod him, my expert jasoos says that although SRK talks a lot in person and on TV shows, he's very crisp when he writes his emails and mobile messages. Meaning?

Holmes explains that when he writes emails or messages, they are so short that sometimes, if one is not well-versed with his style of writing, they may not even understand what he writes. Of course, my dear dimpled Khan replies very quickly to urgent messages and emails but otherwise, everything waits till he's free.

Khan is also the film's producer."Rumours about SRK acting in KJo's next had been doing the rounds but Karan's constant silence about the film started giving people the impression that SRK was only planning to produce the film," the Times of India quoted an unnamed source as saying."But actually, both SRK and Karan are co-producing the film, which will launch newcomers Varun Dhawan , Siddarth Malhot…

Shah Rukh in KJo's next

Kunal M Shah, MUMBAI MIRROR, Jan 27, 2011, 12.04am IST In our report dated November 29, 2010 on Karan Johar launching Mahesh Bhatt's daughter in his next film, we told you that SRK was likely to play a cameo in the film.

Gauri Khan is angry with SRK

Gauri Khan is rather miffed with her husband Shah Rukh Khan these days. She isn't very happy with the way SRK has been behaving. What has SRK done to be at the receiving end of his wife's wrath?

Well, the reason is that King Khan has apparently been neglecting his health for a while now. The actor, who has been traveling a lot and on a rather hectic schedule has apparently not been taking adequate rest. Well, the time difference is also to blame.

"I know that I am traveling too much these days, I am shuttling between time zones and continents. I do lose track of time once in a while, but I don't ever get sick because of jet-lag. Everybody complains of sleep issues due to excessive travel, but I've yet to experience that," says SRK.

Guess how many hours Shah Rukh Khan sleeps? He reportedly sleeps for some three-four hours and that's not all. The actor believes it's enough!

"Yes, three-four hours of sleep is just enough for me. Besides, it…

SRK is Mr Perfect

Good morning my yellow bell peppers! Here's what I need to really reveal: gups and shups. For starters, Sher Lock Holmes dropped by on the sets of Ra.One and returned home extremely elated after meeting Shah Rukh Khan. He tells me, Holmes sillies, not SRK, that the hero is so involved with his film that he doesn't like any outsider snooping around.

He has ensured that every line of dialogue that goes into the film is perfect. For that, he makes sure that the dialogue writer of Ra.One Kanika Dhillon is always present on the sets for creative inputs. The girl adheres to whatever he says. She's on the sets all the time that Badshah bhai shoots.

King Khan in tights and underwear!

Shah Rukh Khan, who will be seen in two of the year's biggest releases, his home production RA.One, and Farhan Akhtar's Don 2, had just one release last year, friend and filmmaker Karan Johar's My Name Is Khan.  The actor often found it frustrating and tiresome to be at home, nursing an injury that he suffered while filming My Name Is Khan.

"I had three screws inserted in my body due to the shoulder injury. Recovery wasn't exactly speedy. It took me six-eight months to resume work. I missed being in the studios at that time," sighs Khan, backstage at the recently concluded Apsara Awards. "On several occasions, I thought that I should start on a new film, but Don 2 and RA.One required physical agility, and I wasn't in great shape at that point. But now, when both films are near completion, I will take on more work."

The actor, before even making his superhero entry on the big screen, says he is a hit with his kids, Aryan and Suhana. &quo…

Shahrukh Khan at Neelam-Sameer Soni’s wedding reception

Look who arrived looking gorgeous as ever at Neelam and Sameer Soni's wedding reception yesterday? It's Aishwarya Rai. The lady wore a dark pink back-less salwar suit and was without her dear hubby. While others who added Bollywood zing to the reception were Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukherjee and also Karan Johar.

SRK and Rani took some time out and were seen enjoying each other's company and posing for photogs, but we can't say the same for Ash and Rani. It seems the theme for the party was pink and white as most of the ladies walked in pink-coloured dresses. Rani was quite the cynosure of eyes; she looked lovely in pink and white ghagra-choli.

Here are more stills from Sameer Soni and Neelam's wedding. Catch your favourite celebs:

Lovers don't sleep: Shah Rukh Khan

Back in Mumbai after a hectic travel schedule, actor Shah Rukh Khan says that he has never experienced jet-lag in his life. The only effect that the months of incessant travelling has on him is that he, sometimes, loses track of time."I know that I am traveling too much these days, I am shuttling between time zones and continents. I do lose track of time once in a while, but I don't ever get sick because of jet-lag. Everybody complains of sleep issues due to excessive travel, but I've yet to experience that," says Shah Rukh.However, there's one person who constantly worries about the superstar not catching enough sleep and that's his wife, Gauri. "I sleep for three hours a day generally. I can see everybody in deep sleep around me even when I am on flight.

Shah Rukh: ‘I have not ghost directed Ra.One’

In an exclusive interview, the star talks science fiction films, his new blue eyes, the Oscars and Salman

Shah Rukh Khan wants to clear rumours about just how far he threw his weight around on the sets of his much-vaunted home production, "Ra.One". But quiz him on Salman Khan and he clams up.  In an interview for, he talks about the Oscars, 'Ra.One' and select other subjects.It's being said that you have ghost directed 'Ra. One'?You keep reading news that I am directing the films in which I am working in. No it is not true. I have worked in 70 films till date and I haven't directed any one of them. No one else has directed them too. The director has only directed them. Even 'Ra.One' has been directed by Anubhav Sinha only. I haven't directed it. Anubhav is a very humble man. He does not say anything. He is media shy too and he does no talk about his work. He does not talk much. He is a fantastic director. Insh'a…

Chhamak Challo, the new Sheila?

Munni and Sheila are now passé. This Diwali, Chhamak Challo will sizzle on screen. So says Kareena Kapoor for her song in Shah Rukh Khan's superhero fantasy flick, RA.One. "But it's not an item number," Kareena is quick to add. "It's one of Akon's two tracks, and an integral part of the storyline. It's fantastic!" She adds that the ambience is south Indian, and choreographer Ganesh Hegde has incorporated some classical moves! "I've never done something like this before, I'm looking forward to people's reactions. I'd be lying if I didn't say it would be the biggest song of 2011. But I'll let the audience see it, and say it for me." According to the trade verdict, RA.One is one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, but Kareena chooses to be diplomatic.

When SRK got luck

The reigning queen Katrina Kaif recreated the magic of Sheila, but with a twist at the 6th Apsara Awards produced by Wizcraft International.

The spunky actress Anushka Sharma came with her Band, Baaja and Baraat. Our Khiladi No. 1, Akshay Kumar couldn't stop himself from joining the lissome lass and they brought the house down with on beats of Patiala House. And talking about Patiala, how can we forget Punjab da puttar Dharamendra, who received a lifetime achievement award.

It cannot get any bigger or better than this! Two icons of Bollywood and a heavyweight Hollywood A-lister are coming together to support the cause of education among the underprivileged in India.

Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Judi Dench will be working in tandem to promote education among the low-income groups of the country with the sole aim that when these kids become bread-winners, they will have a better life and in turn provide better opportunities to their children.

And bringing these top actors together is none other than the Oscar-winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty. His foundation has been silently working towards bettering the socio-economic conditions of the poverty struck groups but he believes that the time has come to go top gear. "It is unimaginable that even in the 21st century there is rampant illiteracy in India. We are making our presence felt in the world and this aspect is something that should definitely be tackled.

Shahrukh Khan talks about the pains he endured!

his box office clout unbeatable and comparable only to the other two Khans, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan (especially after DABANGG).

Last year fans were treated to just one SRK film, MY NAME IS KHAN, and after flooring the critics and his fans, as well as the discerning audience with a superlative heart felt performance in MNIK, Shahrukh disappeared from the big and small screen, although he made appearances in various ads.
However, it was not a long overdue vacation or holiday that he owed his family or something alike that kept him away from the lime light, but it was health concerns that forced him to take a long break.

Shahrukh talked about his shoulder injury and the surgery and said that he had to stay at home and recoup after that. Talking about his pains he said that he had almost no rest for about three months as he could not even sleep peacefully. In fact, he had to sit and sleep and could not even perform a day-to-day task like taking a bath due to the extreme pain…

SRK opens gym to friend

The actors that workout together stay together is the new mantra in Bollywood. Sanjay Dutt was one of the first superstars to let all the young boys who entered films workout in his gymnasium.

Ink of mystery in SRK tattoo

Has Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan decided to express his love for a certain someone with the letter ' D' engraved on his right arm? Or maybe his act of getting inked is just a promotion stunt for his upcoming biggie Don 2.

The mystery surrounding his ' D' tattoo is still unsolved.

However, it's not news that tattoos have been a rage with B- town celebrities for quite some time now.

Whether it is actors like Deepika Padukone or Saif Ali Khan, who have sketched their bodies with their lovers' initials or name, or be it Akshay Kumar and Arjun Rampal, who have their kid's names stamped on themselves, the tattoo fever has now got on to King Khan.

Though the actor has not confirmed if the tattoo is a permanent one or not, he was spotted at several events, flaunting his new tattoo.

RA.ONE to feature some themes by The Prodigy

RA.ONE to feature some themes by The ProdigyJanuary 19, 2011 12:40:53 PM IST
Abid, Glamsham Editorial
Send to FriendShahrukh Khan's Anubhav Sinha directed RA.ONE has been in the news
from the day of its announcement. The music of the film has especially
been in the limelight for different reasons. First it was due to the
presence of singer Akon and later on it was heard that Hans Zimmer
(THE DARK KNIGHT) would be doing the background score, a news which
was contradicted by the makers when we asked them. They told us that
Vishal and Shekhar are doing the background score.
The latest buzz doing the rounds is that it will now be the
International band The Prodigy (of 'Smack my bitch up' fame)
collaborating with the RA.ONE composers Vishal and Shekhar for the
background score. To get the facts we contacted the people at the helm
of affairs and they told us that The Prodigy would indeed be a part of
