While his contemporary Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran watched the match in Mohali along with other Bollywood celebs like Preity Zinta and Vivek Oberoi, SRK opted to cheer for Dhoni's team from home.

"I think I should have asked Preity," the actor joked when asked why he was not in Mohali.

"Too much crowd and I had a huge group of friends and we wanted to watch the match together. It would have been difficult...much better to watch it at home," said Shah Rukh, who was wearing an Indian jersey.

The 45-year-old actor was happy to get so many eyeballs for the first look of Ra.One, whose trailer was released during the match.

SRK to play Charles Sobhraj?

French filmmaker Alain Andre, who is making a flick on alleged serial killer Charles Sobhraj, says he wants to cast Shah Rukh Khan in the film's lead role.

"We were sure we wanted Shah Rukh Khan ... We think he is the best person to portray Sobhraj," says Andre, who says Sobhraj gave him exclusive rights for a biopic.

"Just before Charles got free from Delhi's Tihar jail, Chantal (his first wife) asked us (Andre and partner Francois) to make a movie," says the filmmaker. "Charles wanted to be famous, to see his stories in books and novels, which is why he never said 'no, I'm innocent','' he adds. The director is now looking for a co-producer from Bollywood to make the film, which he plans to set in India, where Sobhraj spent his years.

Andre says that Sobhraj has demanded that he should not be shown as a killer in the movie.

I loved Wolverine the most and during our discussion just a while back, Hugh offered me to be part of the next X-Men installment. I told him I am in. I would definitely love to do X-Men with him.

Just as SRK made that revelation, Hugh jumped in and said, "Well, Oh! I just asked you to finance the film." This was just one of the many light-hearted moments that electrified the crowd present at FICCI. Both the stars were a treat with their quick wit and amazing sense of humour.

I hate love stories, says Shah Rukh Khan

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has collected the maximum number of Best Actor awards for My Name is Khan this year, has no reservations about being given the Golden Kela award for Worst Actor for the same film.

"I think they did not have my address to officially invite me for this award. But, I want to ask these people as to why they are copying the Hollywood concept of giving away the Razzies. Why can't they come up with something original?" SRK quipped.

The actor has a very philosophical take on various awards conferred on him. "There are people who praise you endlessly while there are people who are ready to rob you off those praises.

These people think that may be you were not as fantastic.

Bangalore through Anjanna Kuthiala’s eyes

Her canvases speak of myriad hues. From painting women, who are a blend of the east and west, to Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and a host of other celebrities, to cause-based works of art, Anjanna Kuthiala's repertoire of work spans a gamut of paintings. The Delhi-based writer and painter, who transitioned from being a homemaker to a well-known artist, brings to Bangalore a body of work that boasts of incorporating the city's inherent character in each of her 20 frames."Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore have always been closest to my heart. Delhi is where my career took off, Mumbai was where I showcased a series of 20 paintings depicting Shah Rukh's various avatars and Bangalore, because the city's greenery and beauty inspires the artist in me," says Kuthiala.

The Marilyn Monroe in Shah Rukh Khan

A superstar fills his need for several selves as he shifts personalities in a jiffy at Delhi meet
To know why Shah Rukh Khan is a superstar, all you have to do is rent Dulha Mil Gaya (Trinidad, Fardeen Khan, enough said). His 15-minute cameo lifts the 2010 movie out of purgatory and gives it one of the most romantic gestures in Bollywood history, a middle-aged millionaire who gets up early so when his girlfriend is awake, he can focus on her. To know what we really want from superstars like Shah Rukh Khan, unfortunately you need the good fortune to see an off-screen performance.At the recent India Today Conclave, among such enormous crowd-pullers as Sarah Palin and Narendra Modi, there was no question that SRK was still the headliner. With extreme seriousness, he read a lucid speech largely about the business end of Bollywood. No sentimental anecdotes, no stories about his mother or his love for home-cooking—a tune so familiar in celebrity speech that after a while you only…

Superhero costumes are SRK's most expensive clothes

Shah Rukh Khan's superhero fantasy adventure, RA.One, has the rumour mills buzzing overtime. Director Anubhav Sinha admits that he's heard some funny stories but perhaps the most absurd one was that Shah Rukh and his nemesis, Arjun Rampal, share 21 superhero costumes between them, each of wh ich reportedly cost $1 million.

"That would mean that we've spent $ 21 million that's equivalent to Rs 90 crore on these costumes alone. How ridiculous is that!" he scoffs. "Yes, there are 21 costumes and they are expensive. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that they are the most expensive clothes either actor has ever worn. But still, they are not that pricey even if they cost far more than the Armanis and Dolce & Gabbanas that Shah Rukh and Arjun have in their wardrobes."It's common knowledge by now that both the stars lost a lot of weight to get into the the costumes, which makes them a must-have for tho…

Shah Rukh's post-Holi party

King Khan held a Holi bash late last evening
PS: It was a colour-free affair
Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan hosted a Holi bash yesterday at their home, Mannat. Held late last evening, it was different as it began at a time when all other Holi parties had ended.

Celebs at Shah Rukh's Holi bash

Says a source, "Having a post-Holi party was Gauri's idea. SRK had been out of town for a long time and a get-together would help him reconnect with friends.

The logic plainly was that Holi parties, though great fun, are too noisy and mess up the garden and house with colours and water."

Another reason was the India-West Indies cricket match in the evening. "SRK and his friends love watching the match together on his huge LCD screen at Mannat."

Adds the source, "Though it was a post-Holi party, guests were served bhaang and jalebi along with a variety of Indian sweets and a lavish dinner. Gauri sent out personal invites."

The usual suspects: Karan…

SRK has admitted that the fact that young girls screaming his name at the airports and trying to tear his clothes gives him a high that he cannot forget. The King of bollywood has confessed that he loves attention. In his words, "I would be lying if I don't admit that I love the attention that stardom has got me. And why not? I have worked hard to get this attention and I love it when I see young girls screaming my name and trying to tear my clothes. All this attention gives me a high that I have worked hard for."Well, with SRK charming everyone with his candour, it seems King Khan and his entourage of screaming fans are here to stay.It is the not the typical storytelling of two different people then they fall in love.

SRK takes to doodling

Shah Rukh Khan is leaving no stone unturned for his forthcoming film RA.One. So much so, that the star himself has started doodling the storyboard for the film along with artist Atul Chouthmal.

Khan insisted that Atul was called back after the director Anubhav Sinha got a new storyboard artist from Hollywood.

When contacted, Atul said, "I had already signed the contract with Red Chillies and had worked on the film.

However, they hired a Hollywood artist who had worked on films like Spiderman. He had a different vision and SRK sir was keen on me as he wanted someone from Mumbai.

He thought that someone from the city would know the roads well.

And all this happened even before I met SRK. I was called at Yash Raj Studios where he met me. He then took me to Filmcity in his car where we discussed the work. He had already doodled many sketches and he was very clear on how he wanted to go about the storyboard.

I used to have creative sessions with him before every schedule and the…

"I met Shahrukh on the sets of the film but I did not interact much. He did not really provide any acting lessons or tips," Giselle told PTI. Produced by Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, Always Kabhi Kabhi is based on the theme of high-school life.

"The movie is about four students from high school and their relationship with parents. I am just looking forward to it with lot of excitement," said Giselle.

She will be seen alongside Producer Karim Morani's daughter Zoa, Satyajit Dubey, a theatre artist and Ali Fazal, who played Joy Lobo in 3 Idiots.

Khan is among the most influential people in India's movie industry, and the promoter or co-promoter of several production companies engaged in movies, television and special effects. He is a sought-after television host, a frequent face for prestige and public service advertising, and one of India's unofficial cultural brand ambassadors.

Born in 1965, Khan obtained a Masters degree in mass communication, with a specialisation in film-making from Jamia Milia Islamia University in Delhi. He pursued an acting career soon after. He debuted in Fauji, a TV serial, in 1988. His Bollywood debut came four years later, with Deewana.

Shah Rukh beats Aamir's record

Shahrukh Khan's Ra.One has beaten Aamir Khan's film 3 Idiots' record of the highest price for satellite rights. Ra.One's satellite rights have been bought for a whopping amount of Rs 40 crore. The rights for 3 Idiots were sold for Rs 36 crore, reported Mid-Day.Ra.One is also one of the costliest films so far and with state of the art technology and snazzy costumes, this is no surprise. SRK's Ra.One has several international celebrities; the special effects are being done by Hollywood artists, so this film sure needs to recover its costs.And this is just the beginning, knowing Shah Rukh, he will leave no stone unturned in promoting the film and he'll do it with style!

SRK praised Salman: Abhinav

Abhinav Kashyap a.k.a. Dabangg director and brother of Anurag Kashyap, only recently visited Shah Rukh Khan at his residence and all hell broke loose. There were talks that Abhinav had left the Salman camp for Shah Rukh's. However, Abhinav Kashyap denied all of this when we put him in the hot seat.

He told us, "Yes, I did go to Shah Rukh's house. He saw Dabangg, thought it to be a good movie, and share the appreciation with me. He's an actor, I'm a director, we are a part of the same industry, there was no reason why I shouldn't have met him. I didn't meet him in hinding, I told Arbaaz that Shah Rukh had called me home and that I intended to meet him," he said.

Abhinav further added, "SRK spoke a great deal about Dabangg. He praised Salman's performance in it. He applauded Arbaaz' production efforts. He congratulated me on a job well done as well. That was really all that happened when I visited Shah Rukh."
