Salman loves Hrithik!

2 11 2009

Salman Khan gave Hrithik Roshan’s wife Suzanne’s birthday a miss!

Is it because he knew Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan would be there? Anyway, sources say the actor excused himself by telling Duggu that he was committed to be in Delhi that day to walk at the fashion week. It is also said that when the two actors spoke on the phone, Salman told Hrithik that he loves him as much as his younger brothers. He also told Duggu that he was completely informed of the important events in Hrithik’s life. He wanted the light-eyed dancing sensation not to over-work and spend quality time with his wife and two sons — Hridhaan and Hrehaan.

Of course rumours have it that Salman told Hrithik that if he doesn’t take care of himself and his family then he would actually stop talking to him. If you’re wondering whether grown-up men actually talk this way, well in Bollywood they do. Here superstars are often boys at heart.

Shahrukh helps Shahid and Priyanka!

5 01 2009

The buzz is that Bollywood King Shahrukh Khan helped Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra during Mumbai terror attacks.

It is said that Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and other members were busy in shooting of Vishal Bharadwaj’s upcoming film ‘Kaminay’ at Marine Drive on November 26 when terrorists attacked several places of Mumbai. All the unit members cancelled the shooting and left for home.

If reports are to be believed, When Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra were going home, they came to know about another attack in Juhu. Shahrukh Bungalow Mannat was near. They rang up Shahrukh Khan, he told them to come home and they spent night at Mannat. It is learnt that Shahrukh Khan and her wife Gauri Khan are very kind hearted to others.

A close friend of Shahid Kapoor revealed, “Shahid and Vishal left at 10.30pm but they had to face many problems while coming back. Priyanka Chopra and Shahid decided to spend a night at Shah Rukh’s place because they could not move further. They left in the morning when situation was normal.”

Shahrukh & Anushka come together for Press Meet.

19 12 2008

December 19 2008 20:10 PST
The stars of the new movie Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma got together again for a press meet! We have a look into their latest sighting where they posed happily for pictures and answered questions. People love Shahrukh Khan, but it seems the public is also excited about the hot new actress, Anushka since she can be the next big thing in Bollywood. Anushka who is originally from Bangalore, was discovered by one of India’s greatest fashion designers, Wendell Rodricks. He is also the one who discovered Deepika Padukone.

During a fashion show, Wendell spotted Anushka Sharma while she was modeling and the starlet is already acting opposite Shahrukh in a lead role! We’re really glad Wendell discovered her when he did! Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s meeting was recent, at the illustrious YashRaj Studios where the famous Shahrukh Khan, did his own little interview of Anushka Sharma for their film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. The press was more than a little amused to see the actor take on their role and interview his co-star for once! Anushka Sharma was beautiful, without a hair out of place and she had that big luminous smile she’s becoming known for. The only thing that was a little off was her outfit which didn’t do her beauty justice and looked much better from far away than it did up-close. Shahrukh Khan did a good thing by wearing a dark suit and plain gray shirt which were rightfully subdued next to Anushka’s tri-colored ensemble. Still, we couldn’t help but love the cute couple as they posed on the well known Punjab Power bike from the movie and shared a kiss on the cheek! We hope Gauri Khan doesn’t get too upset!

Private screening of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi !

3 12 2008

The month of December will see two of the biggest Khans clash at the box-office. Shah Rukh Khan’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is releasing on December 12 and Aamir Khan isn’t far behind with Ghajini releasing on December 25. 

This is not the first time when Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have battled it out at the box-office. Back in 1995, SRK’s Ram Jaane and Aamir’s Akele Hum Akele Tum ; released on the same Friday. It’s a different story that both the films failed miserably at the box-office.

This time, though Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Ghajini are spaced out by a cool couple of weeks, there are still a lot of elements that get the film in common contention and can still prove as a potential threat to each other. We compare the two films with respect to the box-office potential and even otherwise.

Last Month First film
While both the films release in the last month of the year, they happen to be the first film of their respective leads. If you can ignore the cameo that Shah Rukh Khan did in Bhoothnath (that was primarily an Amitabh Bachchan film) and his voiceover in films like Shaurya and Kismat Konnection , Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi happens to be the first film of 2008 where Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in a full-fledged role. Aamir anyway is known for his ‘one-film-a-year’ policy and Ghajini fits in that bill.

Interestingly, despite having a release so late in the year, both Shah Rukh and Aamir remained in news throughout 2008 for their own good (or bad) reasons. SRK was in news for his world tour, spat with Salman, race with Akshay and things alike. Aamir remained in limelight for Jaane Tu … Ya Jaane Na despite being only the producer of the film.

Image Changeover
Both Aamir and Shah Rukh are experimenting with their looks in the film. Aamir was much in news for having worked out for 8-pack abs, 2 steps ahead of Shah Rukh’s 6 packs from Om Shanti Om . Apart from his well-toned physique, Aamir has also gone for a crew-cut with intermediate patches for a major portion in the film. Tattoos on his body define the look more. For one song from the film, Aamir will be seen in six different getups.

Shah Rukh Khan on the other hand is going for an image changeover that shows him as a geek with a bespectacled look, oiled hair, simple shirt and trouser attire sporting a moustache.

The cross-connection here is that while Aamir who was last seen in a very simple look as Professor Ram Shankar Nikumb has now gone hot-and-hip with his new look in Ghajini . On the other hand Shah Rukh Khan who was too hot to handle in his last major film Om Shanti Om , has gone complete nerdy in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi .

Fresh Female Face Value
Both the films have new heroines opposite the lead actors. Aditya Chopra took several rigorous audition sessions to get the perfect girl for his new film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and finalized a new face Anushka Sharma opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

Ghajini too has a new heroine Asin making her Bollywood debut opposite Aamir Khan. However Aamir had it easy while searching the ideal female for the film as he cast the girl from the original Tamil film Ghajini for the same role in the Hindi version.

Interestingly, one thing common to the heroines of both the films is that they have been kept away from the paparazzi limelight and both Aditya Chopra and Aamir Khan have asked them not to speak to the media until the film releases. The men behind both the films are trying to increase the curiosity value behind their heroines.

Box-Office Business
The producers of both the films have tasted success only in recent times. Yash Raj Films was going through a rough patch through 2007 and a major part of 2008. After a spate of flops like Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Aaja Nachle, Tashan and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic , YRF got a hit with Bachna Ae Haseeno. Roadside Romeo did below average business though was not an outright flop.

The producers of Ghajini gained in good money with Taare Zameen Par last year. But this year they faced a flop with Contract .

So both the production houses, though not in a bad shape by any way, want their films to click at the box-office to get them into the big league.

Both the films are planning to ask extra revenues from the multiplexes, to gain more profits for themselves. When YRF had fallout with the multiplex-owners during Tashan, the agreement that they reached subsequently was that YRF won’t ask extra revenue from multiplexes for any of their releases of 2008 including Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, Bachna Ae Haseeno and Roadside Romeo . YRF could only ask an added share from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi which they will now look forward to cash in. PVR Pictures will expect the same from Ghajini.

Shahrukh Khan turns 43 on November 2!

1 11 2008

Shah Rukh Khan turns 43 tomorrow; does that make our king Khan old? No, not at all. He is still the same Rahul of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Raj of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. He is one star who has outwitted the nature’s phenomenon of aging. So to make this day a bit special for the Baadshah of Bollywood, his better half Gauri Khan is ready to bring in the day with a small celebration.

Gauri Khan is throwing a party tonight at Mannat for hubby Shah Rukh who brings in his 43rd birthday tonight. Says a source, “Gauri is keeping it very hush-hushand only selected few have bee invited. The funny thing is that while Salman Khan’s family has been invited, he has been left out.”

Of course the usual crowd is expected Arjun and MehrRampal, Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder, Malaika and Arbaaz Khan, Sohail and Seema Khan, Sajid Khan, Chunky and Bhavna Pandey, Karan Johar, Anu and Sunny Dewan, Maheep and Sanjay Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.


Well we hope that one day Salman and SRK stop fighting so bollywood can be in peace again…well a little peace.

Shahrukh throws out Katrina

4 10 2008

It was Katrina Kaif who has fallen victim of the ugly spat between beau Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan at her birthday party. Sallu had picked up tussle with SRK and his wife Gauri and according to the rumor mill, now to teach lesson to the duo, Shahrukh has thrown out Katrina from the Temptation Reloaded Tour.

Katrina who was an important member of the tour is no longer associated with it. She was to perform along with other stars like Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Javed Ali, Anushka Dandekar and Ganesh Hedge. After the entire episode, Katrina almost stopped talking to Sallu and she even decided to call off her relationship. In spite of reacting strongly against Salman, she had to pay a heavy price of her career. At the same time, Kat’s absence will be a heavy loss for the show as she has a huge fan following.

The authenticity of the news is yet to be confirmed as Shahrukh and Katrina remained unavailable for comment.

Poor Katrina…but i don’t think SRK would do that… I guess maybe SRK and Salman aren’t fighting … if not then Bollywood can finally become a big happy family… you have the Bachans, Khans and Kapoor… Plus extras like Amrita Rao and others :).

We can wish!!!!!

Hot Stars at Drona Premiere!! Pictures!!!

4 10 2008

You know how many stars such as Aishwarya Rai and Shahrukh Khan were said to be rivals, well pics from the Drona Premiere prove the rumours wrong. Even though they were known for having a lot of battles, Shahrukh was in a friendship mood and said hi to the Bachans and now they’re all happy. I guess Shahrukh beat Salman to it! Sorry Sallu we still love you 🙂

Other speculations of the fire between Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra were splashed with water because the two were seen at the premiere together and also took pics. But we’re still not sure if they’re a “jodi” aka “couple” ?

Others at the Premiere were Shahid Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Preity Zinta, and Sushmita Sen.

Well obiviously you don;t beilve what I say and you need pictures so here they are:

Amitabh Bachchan with son Abhishek Bachchan and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai

Drona Premiere saw several bollywood stars come to support Abhishek and the Bachchan family. Abhishek was at his charming best and kept his guests entertained. So what did B town think of Abhi’s superhero avatar? Wife Ash was by her husband’s side supporting and encouraging him. Ash went all out for the event in a navy blue and black bustier gown, looks like Ash’s leaving no stones untunrned to help her hubby get that elusive hit?


The Drona premiere also finally marked the end of the Bachchan-SRK feud, as SRK was seen politely hugging and greeting Amitabh Bachchan, thus putting an end to the constant rivalry and comparisons between the two stalwarts. So while SRK marks the end of friendship with one ‘Khan’ colleague, he is smartly rekindling his friendship with the Bachchans. Smart move SRK.

Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan with Shahrukh Khan's Family

SRK along with his wife Gauri as well as two kids attended the Drona premiere. At the event SRK also patched up with the Bachchan bahu Aishwarya thus bringing an end to their long standing cold vibes. Ash and SRK shared cold vibes during the last couple of years due to their ex-allaince with bad boy, Khan and have not worked together ever since. It seems both Ash and SRK have put their allaince with the bad boy in the past and have now moved on to being friends. So now maye we’ll soon get a chance to see this hot pair, SRK-Ash together on-screen.
Priyanka Chopra with boyfriend Harman Baweja


Actress Priyanka Chopra attended the Drona premiere with ‘good friend’ Harma Baweja. So it seems that all those rumours about the two not being together after LoveStory 2050 flopped are not true. Well Piggy Chops does have a big heart and seems to have given her beau another chance. At the event, Priyanka donned her short trademark style dress which had an Indian print, unfortunately this Indo-western fusion was not flattering. Boyfriend Harman seemed to be going for the Mera Naam Joker look, with his blue chequed blazer. This couple surely needs to be better style co-ordinated.


Preity Zinta in a sexy black saree with Ritesh Deshmukh


Actress Preity Zinta who has not been seen around much lately, also attended the Drona premiere with Ritesh Deshmukh. No doubt pretty Preity was missing beau Ness Wadia. Preity was see in a deglamourised avatar at the event where she wore a lacy saree. Looks like Preity is taking her serious deglamourised roles too seriously.


Jaya Bachchan with family firend and politician Amar Singh


Jaya Bachchan who is also seen in the film Drona was seen wearing a ‘different’ salwar. Apparently she tried too hard to look different at the event. Unfortunately not everything that looks different looks good. Jaya was accompanied by the family politician, Amar Singh, no doubt so that he could keep a check on her random comments and keep her out of any commenting trouble. Having a politician around, after all does help to be politically correct.


Gorgeous Sonam Kapoor at Drona Movie Premiere


Sonam Kapoor, who will be seen alongside Abhishek in his next film Dilli 6 also attended the Drona premiere. No doubt Sonam’s hoping that Abhi’s charm and experience will work for their film too. But will this ‘different’ couple Abhi and Sonam look good together on-screen, only time will tell?


Director Goldie Behl with wife Sonali Bendre and their kid at Drona Premiere


Director Goldie Behl was no doubt excited at the release of his film. His wife, actress Sonali dazzled one and all in a pink one shoulder satin gown and their little kid was also seen alongside his parents, they made quite a cute family picture. However Goldie seems a little overconfident about his film as he has already announced a sequel to Drona, without waiting to see whether Drona will be appreciated or rejected by audiences. Some directors couldn’t care less about their audiences preferences.


Shahid Kapur at Drona Movie Premiere


Shahid Kapur whose rarely seen at many events attended the Drona premiere looking fit and lean. The boy seems to be working really hard after his last success Jab We Met, but Shahid all work and no play definitely makes one a dull person. There was talk that sisters Kareena and Karisma would also attend the event, thus putting an end to the Kapoor-Bachchan feud. But the Kapoor sisters didnt turn up, we guess they’re not in the mood for a reconcilliation.


Sensous Sushmita Sen in a black dress at Drona Premiere


Sushmita Sen who hasn’t been seen in a film for a long time attended the Drona premiere. The ex-Miss Universe made a smart choice to wear black at the event, as recently she has been more in the news for the extra pounds that she has put on. But why is Sush not seen in more films, lack of offers or lack of motivation?

Priyanka Chopra and Sonam Kapoor bond at the Drona Premiere and pose together for pictures !

Sonam Kapoor poses for the camera looking dazzling than ever!

So there you have it the Drona Premiere!!!!
