Shah Rukh Khan becomes INTERPOL Turn Back Crime Ambassador (Interpol)

LYON, France - Internationally renowned Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan has agreed to become an Ambassador for INTERPOL's Turn Back Crime campaign to promote greater awareness of how each of us can have a role in preventing crime.
The multi-award winning actor, the first Indian to be made an Ambassador for the global campaign, is lending his voice to help spread the message that all of society benefits when citizens respect the law and fight crime.
"It's a very special honour to be a part of INTERPOL's Turn Back Crime Campaign as an Ambassador. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, 'I shall not fear anyone on Earth. I shall fear only God. I shall not bear ill will toward anyone. I shall not submit to injustice from anyone. I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering, if I have to.'. We all should believe in this maxim and in whatever way possible resolve not to let unjust people who might threaten us with criminal activity ma…

SRK’s Happy New Year: The Inside Story

If you thought that director Farah Khan'sHappy New Yearwill be just another big-budget time pass movie-watching experience, you've got it dead wrong. Here is the real story.

For one, Farah in her efforts to create the perfect masala mix has borrowed liberally from each and every director right from Sanjay Bhansali to Prabhu Dheva. But her chief inspiration is Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Trilogy, although Farah has insisted that "she has lifted but not in the Hitch-Partner sort of way." The director's other inspiration is the body of her previous work,Tees Maar Khanincluded.

At the end of the trailer, SRK's character Charlie says, "Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost." That is an interesting hint, the fact being that Deepika Padukone who plays a dancer named Mohini (what an imaginative name) will also make a ghost appearance like she did inOm Shanti Om. The story of a heist, her character of a ghost will do all the stealing since the villain who o…
