Shah Rukh Khan has apparently offered " The Hangover" actress Heather Graham a role in one of his films. He was at the International Film Festival of India ( IFFI) in Goa to inaugurate the event, which the actress is attending.

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."

Rob Schneider impressed with SRK's wit

Hollywood actor and stand-up comic Rob Schneider is impressed by Indians and their wit. "If you make an Indian friend, he's with you for life. But if you make an American friend, he's with you till you're in Mc Donald's," says the 48-year-old, who is in Delhi as part of his first Indian tour.

He says that he discovered the wonders of Indian traffic soon as he landed, when he got stuck in a 4am traffic jam. "It takes good brakes, a good horn, good luck and a lot of wit to be on Indian roads", says the American, who'll perform at the Black Dog comedy evening.

On being asked who'd he crack jokes on, he says, "Since I am in India, all my jokes would have to be approved by Sonia Gandhi."

Schneider says he'd love to visit ashrams and forts in Jaipur.

He adds, "I am on a short visit this time but next time, I will make time to go party in Goa."

What about Bollywood? "I'd love to act with Shah Rukh Khan as he&#…

I'm sick of carrying cigarettes: Shah Rukh

Shah Rukh Khan is trying really hard to quit smoking. Earlier, he would be seen lighting the cancer stick quite frequently - almost like a chain-smoker. 
Not any more. "I have come down to six to seven cigarettes a day," SRK says. It is daughter Suhana who is helping her dad kick the habit.
"Today, when I was leaving home she wasn't happy to see me carry a pack. But one needs time to even give up a habit you have developed for so many years," says the superstar, who would prefer to be just a social smoker. "Actually, I am sick of carrying cigarettes," he says. Uh... give it to your spot boy to carry then, SRK.

Shah Rukh Khan' s in no mood to create controversies

Looks like Shah Rukh Khan is neither in a mood to forgive or forget nor does he want to create controversies. Recently, Anil Kapoor with who Shah Rukh has not had the best of relations, claimed that the credit of creating the stardom of actor Shah Rukh Khan indirectly goes to him. Anil revealed on Preity Zinta's chat show that Shah Rukh was offered Baazigarafter he had rejected the film. "If it had not been for me, today Shah Rukh wouldn't have been where he is," said Anil as Preity looked at him in amazement. Anil indicated that he couldn't spare the time for Baazigaras he had other projects to complete. As we all know, Baazigar(1993) played a big role in establishing Shah Rukh as the next big star in Bollywood in the anti-hero mould. Shah Rukh followed up his Baazigaract with a few anti-hero roles like in Darrand Anjaamwhich garnered a lot of critical acclaim, before Aditya Chopra's Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayengechanged that and established him as t…

Shah Rukh Khan turns magician now

The title track "Zara Dil Ko Tham Lo" of "Don 2" required Shah Rukh Khan to perform some magic tricks. These tricks were to be done with a Zippo (tricks performed with a lighter, the flame of which keeps appearing and disappearing) and cards. For this, one of India's first street magicians, Ugesh Sarkar was called in from Bangalore to teach the Badshah some tricks at his home before he was to shoot. Ugesh was also supposed to be doing some of the tricks in the song. However, Shah Rukh was very quick in mastering the art and to everyone's surprise, he eventually did all the tricks independently without much help from Ugesh. While the shoot was on, Ugesh was on the sets throughout watching the star perform with the Zippo effortlessly. Says Ritesh Sidhwani, producer of "Don 2", "I was surprised to see Shah Rukh do some of the tricks himself. I had thought that we would need Ugesh to do some of those shots. So now you can also call …

RA.One - The new face of Indian cinema

Till now Bollywood movies overseas are more known for their song & dance sequences & heroes running around trees or atop mountains to woo their girls, but RA.One seems on track to add a new dimension to the world renowned Indian cinema. A sci-fi super hero flick, Random Access One or RA.One has finally arrived to our shores on October 26th, 2011. Starring the Badshaah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan, this is the most expensive Bollywood flick till date with an estimated cost of 150 crores (US Dollars ($30.42 million).

It was a memorable experience watching King Khan's much awaited film of the year RA.ONE here in New Zealand. Awesome special effects were the highlight of the film for me. SRK & director Anubhav have tried to elevate the level of Indian cinema vis-a-vis Hollywood. It may be recalled that previous attempts by Indian filmmakers at superhero movies, like Hrithik's Krish & Abhi's-Drona proved futile & were much below the international standards. RA…

With his latest release RA.One, Shah Rukh Khan has gained entry into the exclusive billion-rupee Club of Bollywood.

The film has grossed over Rs 100 crore in India, giving SRK entry into an elite club already consisting of stars like Aamir Khan (Ghajini, 3 Idiots), Salman Khan (Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard) and Ajay Devgn (Singham).

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh says, "RA.One has grossed almost Rs 112 crore in its Hindi version in the first two weeks. Today, he too is part of the Billion Club; that has now become the parameter with which a film's box office business is judged."

Trade pundit Komal Nahta, adds that he never doubted that the film would cross the 100-crore mark. "I was very confident it would cross that mark. In fact, I was expecting it to happen in the first week itself considering the number of shows and screens, but it happened the week after. The film makes you realise the kind of business big budget films can do if you have a five-day weeke…

Fan converts home to SRK shrine!

From someone else's perspective it might seem eccentric, but fans have a reason for every crazy thing they do.

For Vishal Singh of Lucknow it's the sheer joy and contentment of offering reverence to his favorite Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, in a quite unique way.

Believe it or not, but the 38-year-old Indian businessman has plastered every square inch of his house with SRK's pictures and spent his honeymoon waiting outside the actor's house in Mumbai, hoping to catch a glimpse of his idol.

"I will do anything that will make Shah Rukh Khan happy," said Singh, who is into selling homeopathic medicines in Lucknow.

SRK's fans over all over the world would find it hard to beat, but Singh's house is a shrine to Khan. There are cut-outs of Khan on the ceiling, the television and even on cushions. Singh has even changed his name to Vishahrukh Khan.

"No one can be like Shah Rukh, but I wanted my name to have his name. My children are named Simra…

Where you go girl, I'm gonna follow.
What you want girl just let me know.
Girl be my chammak challo.

Aa meri hove aaja parda gira de.
Aa meri akhiyon se akhiyan mila le.
Ab tu na nakhre dikha...
