CHENNAI EXPRESS is going to be big. However 'how big' is the question that is making the rounds of trade, industry as well as the audience. While all sorts of numbers are being thrown around, the man of the moment, Shahrukh Khan, isn't making any statements in this regard. Of course he is promoting the film at all outlets but when it comes to making any proclamations, he is relatively quieter than ever before.

Is that the mid-40s syndrome when as an actor and a professional, he seem to have seen it and done a lot, if not all?

"I will tell you something. After my first 5-6 years in the industry, I started thinking of success very differently. When people think of success then they speak from an outsider point of view. From the point of view of a successful person, it is all very different. It is a whole lot of emotion that happens to very few people," says Shahrukh in a thoughtful tone.

He goes on to add, ''Of course finally the cliche is to work hard. See, I can't explain what success is. I just work. I don't sit and give lecture to my kids. It is a very strange place to be successful. People will have their own take on it. I feel happy if they understand it. I feel sad when they don't and can only say that 'arrey yaar, they haven't understood'. However I can't change them or their thoughts.''

No wonder, he has an entire different take on the film's definite entry into the 100 crore club and then the collections beyond.

'Well, if you are dreaming of numbers then why limit yourself to 100 or 200 crores? You may as well think of 5000 crores. That's how I see it. There is no point assigning a number against your success,' says Shahrukh before signing off.

Putting an end to all speculations, now it is confirmed that Deepika Padukone will be paired opposite Shahrukh Khan in his next home production HAPPY NEW YEAR. The film is directed by Farah Khan.

It was believed that Katrina Kaif was the first choice for the film, but due date problems she couldn't make it. Reportedly the actress has recently signed two film- Kabir Khan's next with Saif Ali Khan and Abhishek Kapoor's next opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.

For Deepika Padukone is like coming back to home, the actress who made her grand debut with Farah Khan's OM SHANTI OM and more than half a decade after her debut film, Deepika Padukone is pairing up with Shahrukh Khan again in CHENNAI EXPRESS.

As per the latest buzz, the film required SRK's heroine to speak fluent Marathi and probably, Katrina would have needed a long period of intense speech practice to sound like a prefect Marathi girl.

Katrina Kaif is currently busy shooting for her upcoming films DHOOM3 and BANG BANG, which will release later next year.

Well Katrina's loss is Deepika's gain!

The fearless Don aka Shahrukh Khan has hit the nail hard and bang on with his dreadlocked look in the film as seen in the trailers. The star, who sports a special haircut for his jail sequence, has been getting muddy and dirty as he packs punches with the inmates. Shahrukh shot for this scene at the Malacca Prison in Malaysia.

Explaining the sequence, a crew member said, "Don has an ace up his sleeves and has already masterminded a prison break."

Shahrukh Khan takes on the inmates of the jail and those who dared to question how he landed up behind the high walls. The actor shot with several local Malaysian artists for this sequence which was physically taxing.

The film was shot in a real prison with real prisoners behind the jail and a complete section of the prison block was made available to shoot. In order to avoid any hitches, special crew t-shirts were made to differentiate crewmembers from the prisoners as it was a high security zone. None of the crew members were allowed to carry their mobile phones and laptops.

Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and director Farhan Akhtar who is also the director of the flick, DON 2 is slated to break into screens on the 21st December 2011.

It seems slang and foul language suits well Bollywood actress, Kareena Kapoor. Filmmakers, audiences love watching Kareena mouthing some cuss words.

It all started with her award winning film CHAMELI, where she played a prostitute with bindass attitude and used some swear & cheeky words. However it was in the film JAB WE MET when she uttered 'Tere Maa Ki ...' while abusing her beau, audiences went berserk watching her. Followed with the film GOLMAAL 3.

And now in her upcoming film RA.ONE Kareena would be once again seen hurling abuses. However, this time around on none other than Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan. In the recently released promo of RA.ONE we can see Kareena frenziedly raining gaalis on Shahrukh, who plays her husband in the film. Bebo is heard yelling, 'Tere baap ki... Tere tau ka poda...' She plays a bindaas Punjabi girl who doesn't worry about her lingo or what she is saying. However, her cute kid does remind her of the foul language every now and then.

Surprisingly whenever Kareena mouthed bad words it did wonders for the film and became a huge hit. Hope her abusive language do the same magic for RA.ONE too.

'My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist' - so said Shahrukh Khan in the Karan Johar drama that released last year. Seems Shahrukh's statement influenced his friend and entrepreneur turned producer/actor Joshi so much that he went ahead and made an entire film around the same statement - Sachin AAZAAN

Says a source, "Obvious reference point for AAZAAN is Shahrukh's MY NAME IS KHAN which again made its statement against terrorism and the plight of Muslims across the world. However it managed to do that successfully without beating the jihad drum and hence conveyed the message in its own powerful way. AAZAAN has taken a similar route as well by not hoisting the jihad flag."

With the kind of approach AAZAAN has taking, it is only apparent that the film, which is said to be the biggest ever espionage thriller made in Bollywood, isn't being one of those regular lavishly mounted action affairs but digs its roots deeper down.

"See, I loved MY NAME IS KHAN and Shahrukh showed his unique way of fighting the system. I salute that," acknowledged Sachiin, "However there are different ways of fighting it out and in AAZAAN I have done just that by also bringing the espionage element. The film shows that how an Indian Muslim can go against all odds and emerge a winner if he has the willpower. Unlike many out there who just touch the sensitive issues, we have also taken a step forward to answer them."

Well, we would know if this is indeed true once AAZAAN hits the screens coming Friday.

Harper's BAZAAR, the world's oldest fashion magazine with 31 international editions, presents their October 2011 issue with an exclusive cover shoot with the King of Bollywood - Shahrukh Khan.

In a casting coup, BAZAAR's October celebration issue has brought together two of India's talented and young stylish beauties - Lisa Haydon and Angela Jonsson with the 'king of romance' Shahrukh Khan for the first time.

Everyone thinks that they know all about the persona behind the image-as an actor, entrepreneur, or a national icon, but rarely does one get to the heart of the man himself. The megastar reveals his sartorial secrets, bares his soul, and tells BAZAAR how he has no notion whatsoever of being special in an exclusive interview.

The cover has been shot by ace fashion photographer Atul Kasbekar.

'Records are meant to be broken' - This could well be the mantra of Shahrukh Khan and Anubhav Sinha this Diwali. Someone who was busy creating one record after another before he embarked upon RA.ONE, spent close to two years in its making, pumped in over 150 crores and saw other Khans churn out 100, 150 and 200 crore blockbusters in the interim, the stage is pretty much set for Shahrukh to create a new record with his sci-fi superhero action thriller.

"Shahrukh certainly knows about these facts and figures and though he is claiming that when it comes to matters of heart, box office collections and subsequently hits and facts take a back seat, fact is that he is pretty much on the job to make RA.ONE as the biggest grosser ever," says a close associate.

This was evident from the music launch which took place early this week at Mumbai which was a lavish affair and first of its kind. Also, a fortune was spent at this event which saw each of the stars performing live.

"This is nothing, wait for a lot more to come in next 40 days," says a marketing guru, "Let's not forget that he has been in the industry for two decades and also has a very sharp business mind. This mega launch was just a beginning. There would be a much more elaborate and well spread out campaign right till the week's release. Entire planning has been done well in advance and now it's time for execution."

Few steps taken in this direction are dubbing the film in Tamil and Telugu with likelihood of German and Chinese version as well. While it is given that the print count would be biggest ever for a Bollywood release, the 3D version would further add on to the momentum.

Says a trade veteran, "Given the pace that RA.ONE has picked up, it won't be surprising for this Anubhav Sinha film to not just break the first week record currently held by Salman's BODYGUARD but also topple 200 crores plus lifetime collections of Aamir Khan's 3 IDIOTS."

Bollywood superstar, Shahrukh Khan has expressed his support for the anti-corruption movement by veteran social activist Anna Hazare, saying that it has helped bring the issue into focus.

Replying to a question on the campaign that has gripped India since the beginning of this week Khan, at a news conference said, 'I think the cause is fantastic and it has been brought to the forefront.'

"The implementation, the parliamentarian aspects, the constitutional rules and laws needs to be given a serious thought," he added.

Self-styled Gandhian Hazare has been on a hunger strike since Tuesday, protesting the government's 'weak' draft of the anti-graft Lokpal Bill and spent three nights jail before being bending the government to permit him take his fast public.

The movement, which Hazare calls India's second fight of Independence, has amassed thousands of supporters and put immense pressure on the government which has been severely flogged for its ham-handed handling of the issue.

If DON - THE CHASE BEGINS was deadly expect its sequel, DON 2 to be deadliest! Atleast this is what the first trailer promises to be. The King of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan returns as the deadliest and dangerous don in DON 2.

The trailer is a must watch for Shahrukh's grungy look, his trademark style, the way he flaunts 'D' tattoo lights cigar, the stylised action sequences and stunts and the corny dialogues mouthed by Don himself. The slickest shots, the pacy remix of prequel's version and with superstar's presence - the film is already giving a feel of blockbuster!

Like its first part, DON 2 has been written and directed by Farhan Akhtar. The music is given by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy.

If you thought its easy to do do away with DON, then indeed its not. As the
Don is back to settle his scores. As he rightly says in the film Ab mujhe koi nahi rok sakta.

Truly DON ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi naamunkin hai!

Plans are being formed up to release Sunny Deol's "I LOVE NEW YEAR" on Christmas eve. So far so good. The only hitch (and a big one at that) is that Shahrukh Khan's DON 2 is slated to arrive on the same day i.e. 23rd December. Since there is a back story behind this decision, it makes the clash all the more interesting.

For the uninitiated, it was more than a decade and a half ago when things soured between Sunny and Shahrukh. For Yash Chopra's psychological dramatic thriller DARR, Sunny was the chosen one as the lead hero while Shahrukh was to play a quintessential villain. However as the film progressed, so impressed was Chopra Sr. with Shahrukh that the BAAZIGAR boy ended up being a hero who went away with all the sympathies while Sunny's presence seemed like a cameo.

'Ever since then Sunny had soured all relationships with Chopras and Shahrukh,' continues the source, 'So when an opportunity came to hit back where it hurt the most, Sunny isn't shying away and has now given a go-ahead for his romantic comedy to take on Shahrukh's thriller.'

As already announced, Yash Chopra's next directorial venture stars the king of romance, Shahrukh Khan. As Yashji put it earlier, 'Everyone knows that when I make a movie, Shahrukh will be involved with it. He is like family to YRF and I have always regarded him as one of my own.'

However, after days of media conjecturing, YRF confirms the two ladies, who will also be a part of this project - one is Katrina Kaif, who will be playing a role opposite Shahrukh for the very first time, and other Anushka Sharma, who was launched in RAB NE BANA DI JODI, alongside Shahrukh.

Orchestrated by Yash Chopra, this untitled movie will mark the coming together yet again of the award winning duo of the music maestro A. R. Rahman and the poet & lyricist, Gulzar.

Says Yash Chopra, 'It's been 7 years since I directed VEER-ZAARA and as I begin work on my new film I hear my inner voice asking me a lot of questions. Are you sure you want to direct again, you are nearly 80 years old and the audience is getting younger day-by-day. Can I really speak from my heart and still expect today's youth to listen to me? Will I be able to live up to the blind faith that Shahrukh Khan has in me and give him yet another memorable romantic film? Will I be able to present the beautiful Katrina Kaif and the very talented Anushka Sharma in a way they have never been seen before? Will I be able to inspire Rahman and Gulzar Bhai enough to create their best work yet?

'The honest answer is... I DON'T KNOW! All I know is that I'm making a film that I believe in, a film that is about love and nothing else. A film which has an old soul but a young heart. A film which is classic in its look but contemporary in its language. A film which I'm making on one simple faith... the love that my audiences have given to me over the years. They have tolerated my indulgences for the past 50 years, I'm sure they will indulge me one more time.'

The film is scheduled for a Diwali 2012 release, the festive time when Yash Chopra movies over the years have lit up homes worldwide.

Amidst magnanimous projects like RA.ONE and DON 2 - THE CHASE CONTINUES, Shahrukh Khan was so pressed for time to get more involved into his home production's next offering ALWAYS KABHI KABHI that the superstar wanted to in a way gift something to the movie that would bear the renowned SRK trademark and that was how the promotional song of the film 'Antenna' was born.

In spite of having a packed schedule and being busy with the post production work of his films Shahrukh Khan was involved with the song 'Antenna' right from its nascent stages - from coming up with the beats and approving the lyrics, to going over various compositions for the song to even shooting for the video in a record breaking time.

According to source, 'Shahrukh Khan was present for almost all of the music sittings that Roshan Abbas and Pritam had arranged for - he was completely involved in the making of the song from the lyrics - composition - the visualizing of the music video and the likes. He even shot for the song in a flat 3 hours. SRK has always wanted to gift something to the film and 'Antenna' seemed appropriate.'

Set with the backdrop of high school, Red Chillies Entertainment's next offering ALWAYS KABHI KABHI is a story of four unique lives trying to compete with the pressures of growing up and the firsts we all experience in school.

Produced by Gauri Khan ALWAYS KABHI KABHI comes to a theatre near you 17th June, 2011. Directed by Roshan Abbas, the film is the launch pad for four of the newest Gen X faces Zoa Morani, Giselle Monteiro, Ali Fazal and Satyajeet Dubey.

Bollywood stars, Rishi Kapoor and Deepti Naval finally found out their missing B-Town co-actor Raj Kiran in an asylum in United States.

The entire search process commenced with a social networking site campaign of Deepti Naval who had acted with the actor in the film HIP HIP HURRAY.

Raj Kiran was missing almost for a decade till he was traced to USA by Rishi Kapoor who joined the quest of searching out the actor and it was during his visit to US where he discovered the real story.

Rishi met with Raj Kiran's elder brother Govind Mehtani and tried to get more information about the actor.

Rishi discovered that the KARZ co-star was staying in an Atlanta psychiatric institution for the past couple of years.

Deepti Naval who had started the entire search with a post on the popular networking site posted : "It is awesome, the response to the 'Search for Raj Kiran' - I'm truly moved by the heartening messages all of you are sending to me as well as on his fan page . . . not only as a colleague and old friend, but even just on humanitarian grounds, I feel if one can make a wee bit difference in another human being's life, then one's own life is worth living!"

Thanking Rishi Kapoor she posted: "We also need to thank Chintu (Rishi ji) for his efforts."

"Looking for a friend/colleague Raj Kiran - please notify at my email .... thanks," she posted earlier with aims of searching the actor.

"All we need to know is that Raj Kiran is okay somewhere... would love to reach out to him... he is a good actor - remember Tum itna jo muskura rahe ho - kya gham hai jisko chhupa rahe ho," she said.

Naval was, however, livid over some insensitive media coverage of the episode by a Hindi news channel.

Meanwhile, Raj was found in a psychiatric house where he was undergoing treatment after getting abandoned by his son and wife long back due to this erratic mood swings, as reported by a reputed channel.

This incident has made him go through an acute mental depression and was institutionalized in India before he was shifted to US.

Moreover, his brothers even did not have any contact number of the veteran actor as they did not keep in touch with home.

Actors like Shahrukh Khan and Rishi Kapoor have assured to support in his rehabilitation in the film industry.

Bollywood’s famous Khans – Salman and Shah Rukh are like two grouchy boys, who try to avoid each other despite shooting not more than a couple of meters away.

Apparently, there was an obvious anxiety in the air yesterday evening at Filmistan Studios, Mumbai where SRK and Salman were shooting for their respective films.

Interestingly, the units on both the sets expected an altercation of sorts that never took place because SRK-Salman kept to their vans.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “Salman has been shooting for Atul and Alvira Agnihotri`s ‘Bodyguard’ for the last few days in Filmistan on the the third floor. SRK began shooting on the first floor. Sallu was shooting a crucial scene and so SRK`s entry had everyone on the ‘Bodyguard’ sets on tenterhooks.”

It is a known fact that two actors haven`t made their peace ever since they had an ugly spat at Katrina`s birthday bash three years ago.

“It was all fun for the ‘Bodyguard’ unit and the shoot was moving along smoothly. SRK`s visit made them go into a tense huddle though shooting continued as normally as before. No-one knew how Salman would react to his dushman being in the vicinity.”

"SRK would leave his van and just go to the studio and shoot as would Salman, who is otherwise known to sit outside his van chatting with his friends and people who drop in to meet him. The ‘Bodyguard’ unit finally heaved a sigh of relief after Shah Rukh left around midnight,” finally added the source.

Now, Bollywood Badshah, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in much-hyped look in his upcoming film, "Don 2" is no longer a secret. While the film’s publicists officially distributed SRK’s pictures from Don 2 on Sunday, fact is that his new look was leaked all over the Internet much earlier.

Shah Rukh Khan looked ‘sorta’ disconcerting in graying beard and long hair neatly tucked under a black knit hairband at Videocon owner Venugopal Dhoot’s daughter’s wedding at Mahalaxmi Race Course in Mumbai.
Don 2 is set to hit theaters on 23 December 2011

Lovers across the world must be eagerly waiting for Valentine’s Day to make their loved ones feel special but Bollywood celebrities, who entertain the public with romantic films, are in no mood to celebrate. Many will be working on the day while others think that it is a vogue idea to have such a day.

Shahrukh khan, the king of romance, said that he would be celebrating Valentine’s Day in jail, as he would be shooting for a film in jail on the day. Aamir Khan will spend the day in Berlin, as he is one of the jury members for the Berlin film festival. Deepika Padukone will be busy shooting for Aarakshan in Bhopal on the day and Katrina Kaif too will work like any other day.

There is also a bunch of them who thinks that there is no point celebrating Valentine’s Day. Priyanka Chopra said that one doesn’t have to wait for a single day to express one’s love. Actor Arshad Warsi also echoed in the same vain, saying that everyday is Valentine’s Day for him, as he has to make his wife happy everyday. Kareena Kapoor too has no plans for the day and wouldn’t gift anything to anyone.

Well, it looks like Valentine’s Day will be dull in Bollywood. But who knows if they secretly have good time with their loved ones or send bunch of goodies even if they can’t celebrate together!

One of the funniest movies of all times, "Angoor", will soon have a remake. The film that was originally made in 1982 by Gulzar is stated to be an iconic rib tickling comedy. And now it will have a remake with Shah Rukh Khan essaying the role originally played by Sanjeev Kumar and Kareena Kapoor filling in at Moushumi Chatterjee’s place. To be directed by Rohit Shetty, the film is set to go on floors by the end of this year.

As for Angoor, the film had Sanjeev Kumar playing a detective novel aficionado and Deven Verma, who pretends to be a bhaang lover. Both characters have their twin counterparts and all hell breaks loose when they finally encounter each other.

What precedes this encounter is a series of goofball moments. And adding to ruckus is Moushumi Chatterjee, whose intemperate bawling tendencies just add to the confusion.

Shetty after his ‘Golmaal’ series is now working on script for Angoor with scriptwriter Sajid-Farhad. The original was based on Shakespeare’s play ‘A Comedy of Errors’.

Confirming the news, a source said, “After he made Golmaal 3, everyone was wondering what Rohit Shetty’s next plans were. People were guessing if he would make a fourth sequel but the director surprised everyone by choosing to work on an Angoor remake. That he decided to work with Shah Rukh Khan on this came as a real shocker. It seems that Rohit is now wanting to work only with A-listers,”

Well, remakes are no easy task and we hope Shetty can do justice to the 1982 classic.
