Shirish Kunder apologises to Shah Rukh Khan

More on the Shah Rukh Khan-Shirish Kunder fight...


If sources are to be believed, Shirish Kunder has extended the olive branch to Shah Rukh Khan. Yes, Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder made their way to Shah Rukh Khan's residence, Mannat, this evening and Shirish we hear said 'Sorry' to SRK!


It was Sajid Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala who played mediator and peace-maker, and made the two parties kiss and make up.


Shah Rukh Khan, we hear, was in a rather forgiving mood, and simply went ahead and hugged Farah and Shirish. Farah, too, said she was sorry, or so we hear.

Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan have been good friends for far too long and it's not easy for one to remain angry on the other for a long time.

So all's well that ends well, we guess.

Shah Rukh Khan assaults film-maker Shirish Kunder

Shah Rukh Khan is said to have punched and slapped film-maker Shirish Kunder last night. Read on for juicy details...

Those who're following Shirish Kunder on the popular micro-blogging site would opine that his tweets against RA.One would irk Shah Rukh Khan.

At the same time, those who disagree would be quick to point out that if the actor can take digs at others, then he should have a sense of humour to accept jibes directed at him too.

In the early hours of Sunday, the actor-producer retaliated to the director's remarks, not verbally, but physically. Yes, it is learnt that SRK slapped and punched Shirish and also commented on the latter's friendship with his arch rival and foe, Salman Khan.

It's a known fact that Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan who were once the best friends in industry have gone different ways. Though they never spoke about it, Farah Khan's husband Shirish Kunder seems to have much to do with the divide. And when Khan and Kunder crossed paths at a recent event, there were more than fireworks on display.

Last evening after Filmfare Awards, Shah Rukh Khan headed straight to Sanjay Dutt's party where there were celebrating the success of Agneepath and the popularity of new-age Kancha Cheena in particular. There Shah Rukh stumbled upon Shirish Kunder and Farah Khan.

SRK's turn to play a cop?

Kamal Haasan wants him to reprise his role in a tamil remake

If there's one role that B'wood actors love to play it's that of a cop. Ask the Big B who was a cop in several films, or Sallu, Ajay Devgn or Akshay Kumar who all went on to enjoy phenomenal success at the BO with their policeman acts. Call it his late entry to action films or bad luck SRK hasn't been able to get too many offers for playing a cop (the only one being the flop 'One 2 Ka 4'). But all that could change soon.

Rumour has it that south Indian veteran Kamal Haasan wants SRK to play his role in the remake of his Tamil film 'Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu,' that became a cult hit in 2006. In the movie Kamal played a police officer who has to figure out the culprit behind a series of rapes and murders.

Apparently, the director of the movie Gautam Menon (who already has a remake of his Tamil film titled 'Ek Deewana Tha,' starring Prateik Babbar hitting the theatres in February) was keen on t…

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, whose mega-budget production " RA.One" has earned more than Rs.100 crore, recalls the time when 100 days in the theatre was victory enough for film producers.

"Was discussing with my DDLJ ('Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge') friend how we wished for a 100 days for our film... rather than Rs.100 crore. Seems our days are truly numbered now!!" tweeted Shah Rukh.

The actor's last release "Don 2: The King Is Back" is also on its way to register earnings over the Rs.100 crore-mark.
