Bollywood quotient to spice up the final

Will Preity be the queen who won over the Knights?

Dubai: High drama has always been part and parcel of the Indian Premier League (IPL) final. With both finalists Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab being owned by two top Bollywood names in Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta, there will be no dearth of emotional scenes this time around. The camera is sure to constantly pan on Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Bollywood, and Punjab's co-owner Preity Zinta. The action in the middle will be backed by off-field dramas from these two stars who have won the hearts of millions of film lovers. Their smiles and sorrows during the match will add to the excitement of the final. Khan, who courted trouble at the Wankhede Stadium during the 2012 edition following a skirmish with the security staff and officials, may have to keep his emotions under control. Zinta, on the other hand, had won the hearts of millions of fans through her infectious smile and was seen she…

Shah Rukh Khan does not want to work on his birthday

​SRK requested Ritesh Sidhwani to give him an off day from 'Raes' shooting which starts from November 1.​
​​ ​ Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will begin the shoot of his next film 'Raes' from November 1 and has requested producer Ritesh Sidhwani to give him an off on his birthday, which falls the day after.

SRK—now the marketing muse!

​Malad-resident Koral Dasgupta decodes consumer behaviour through the prism of actor Shah rukh Khan's super-stardom
​ ​ A classroom full of MBA aspirants and a young teacher who is striving hard to hold their attention. And in comes Shahrukh Khan, flying to the rescue! No, this is not a cheesy scene that was chopped off from Ra.One but a real-life scenario (well, figuratively!) that prompted the birth of Power of a Common Man by Koral Dasgupta. This is a flashback to a day about two years ago when Dasgupta was trying to engage her MBA students in a conversation about the success of brands such as Nestlé and Nirma, but instead she let the discussion take a cinematic turn. The next few hours were spent on decoding why the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Don was remade with Sharukh Khan in it and the reasons behind casting Arjun Rampal as the modern-day Pran rather than the more obvious choices—Anupam Kher or Paresh Rawal. Flash-forward and you find Dasgupta's students eagerly waiti…

Shah Rukh Khan says no to negative role in Race 3?

Despite getting rave reviews for his performance as a villain in 'Baazigar' and 'Darr', superstar Shah Rukh Khan is not in a mood to play a baddie again. Reports suggest that the actor was approached by Abbas Mustan to star in a negative role in their next action thriller 'Race 3'. However, the actor refused to be a part of the movie.

A DNA report says the director duo met King Khan and shared the script of their film with him. They compared SRK's role with Aamir Khan's in Dhoom 3. Though SRK found the role interesting, he was not convinced by it. He politely refused the directors and said that the audience would not accept him as a villain.


SRK will go on Hajj only when he can get daughter Suhana to accompany him

In December 2012, Aamir Khan accompanied his mother Zeenat Hussain on Hajj. In the course of a conversation with Shah Rukh Khan — who is very knowledgeable and passionate about Islam, in fact, when he speaks on the subject you can hang on to his every word — one casually asked him why he hadn't gone on the pilgrimage so far.

The Bollywood superstar explained that Hajj is definitely on his agenda, but he could not specify when he would travel to Mecca. "I would like to go there with my son Aryan and daughter Suhana," he said.

​One knows that girls cannot go on Hajj unless they are accompanied by their father, brother, son or husband. In Suhana's case, SRK has decided to wait till his daughter is ready to accompany him.​
