Co stars love SRK

No matter what Salman Khan may say. Shah Rukh Khan is loved by his co stars. Ask Irfaan Khan and Lara Dutta, his co stars in Billoo Barber, which is being directed by Priyadrashan and produced by SRK himself.

SRK, who shares most of his scenes with Irfaan in the film, apparently endeared himself so much to his co star, that Irfaan is now missing him. The actor says that ever since SRK finished shooting his bit, he has started missing him. According to Irfaan, there is no zing left in the shoot.

SRK, he believes, is an entertainer, on and off screen. And it is this entertainment that he is missing. Lara, on the other hand, who stepped into the film after Bipasha Basu and Ameesha Patel walked out, is touched by the actor’s concern. Since he is the producer of the film, he made sure that he personally checked the accommodation that was provided for the cast when they were shooting in Pollachi in Tamil Nadu, the same village where Priyadarshan had earlier shot Viraasat.

Knowing that there were no luxury hotels available in the village, he personally visited one of the houses in the village where Lara was to be accommodated. Of course, things were a little primitive in the village. The actors had to make it to their locations by tractor. Anyway, it was all rendered tolerable because of SRK’s behavior and his concern for Lara, who he feels indebted to for agreeing to play the role Billoo Barber’s wife at the last moment. So no matter what Salman says, his co stars love SRK

Shah Rukh does it again

It’s not just acting and his enviable energy level that has made Shah Rukh Khan such a huge star. He has an attitude for it too. And that’s the way he helps his friends whenever in need. After he obliged Aziz Mirza by doing the narration for Kismat Konnection, now he has apparently agreed to play a cameo in Zoya Akhtar’s Luck By Chance.

The film already stars Hrithik Roshan and Farhan Akhtar. And guess why he agreed to do this role. He wanted to work with Hrithik again after Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham. The star will be playing himself in the movie which is a comic take on the film industry.

The film will hence have a fair amount of celebrity cameos including Juhi Chawla, Rishi Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma, Isha Sharvani and Dimple Kapadia. Prior to this Shah Rukh has obliged quite a few people the same way. Interestingly, one such movie which he agreed to do for no money is Dulha Mil Gaya, which is still lying incomplete.

SRK unflustered at Aamir’s blog dog comment

The battle of the blogs has just intensified, what with Aamir Khan proclaiming that he has a dog named Shah Rukh. The unflattering comment has sent shock waves through the film industry, but Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is unfazed, saying humorously that it marks a new trend.

Commenting on the whole episode, Shah Rukh said: ‘Earlier people used to name their children after famous people. Somebody naming a dog after a known person is a new beginning in that direction. I don’t have a copyright over this name if used non-commercially.’

The superstar, who owns the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders, is right now busy with IPL matches.

However, a close friend of the superstar on promise of anonymity vented his unhappiness.

‘Aamir’s megalomania has been brewing for a while. Earlier, he declared himself No.1 as compared to SRK, who took it smilingly. Now Aamir is down to street-level provocation. It’s best for Shah Rukh to ignore these efforts to get his attention.’

Says a very popular character-actor, who has worked with both stars: ‘I guess the freedom provided by a blog tends to loosen tongues. Amitabh Bachchan has never been known to be this undiplomatic as he is on his blog.

“Aamir must have thought it’s time to increase the odds, what if Amitji’s blog gets more eyeballs! Also, his nephew’s film is around the corner. During the release of Taare Zameen Par Aamir created a controversy by taking on Amitji and Black. Now for the nephew, it’s Shah Rukh being called a dog.’
