Ajay Devgn all set to take up Shahrukh Khan starrer Chennai Express

Ajay Devgn is all set to Play Damdaar Role In Chennai Express.He  has always enjoyed exceptional support from Salman Khan in the industry and it was quite evident with the recent tussle at the box office between SRK’s JAB TAK HAI JAAN and Ajay’s SON OF SARDAAR. However, SRK was supportive of the stand taken by Ajay which Ajay graciously acknowledged. But will the budding understanding between SRK and Ajay change the course of Ajay-Salman friendship.?

Sources confirmed to zoOm that Ajay certainly is a part of SRK’s next project CHENNAI EXPRESS and will have a dumdaar role in the movie. However, if sources are to be believed, then Ajay has accepted the role because of his buddy Rohit Shetty. Ajay is known to be a level-headed person in the industry and it is surprising that he has agreed to do a movie with SRK, Salman’s arch rival.......

The tinsel town dwellers have already chosen their camps wisely post the SRK, Salman fallout. Only time will tell how Salman will react to Ajay moving away from his camp. ...

SRK'S absence upsets crowd

Where is Shah Rukh? We are waiting for him," wailed 16-year-old Azhar Zakaria, one of the hundreds of locals who crowded the barricades during the opening ceremony of the Marrakech Film Festival in Morocco, which was packed with Bollywood stars.

But alas, Shah Rukh Khan, the star many had come to see, was expected to arrive only on Saturday, while the opening ceremony was held on Friday.

But the superstar's absence did not entirely dim the enthusiasm of the gathered crowd, many of whom were waving Indian flags and shouting SRK's name. There were enough and more stars and directors from the Hindi film industry to keep them happy, including Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan accompanied by his wife, Sussanne, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, Arjun Rampal, and filmmakers R Balki, Gauri Shinde and Karan Johar. "This is my first time in Marrakech," said Karan, who is there together with the cast of his film Student Of The Year. "But I was suprised to see that most people recognised me and knew my name. They've been coming to me and praising my film."

Why did SRK break his ‘no kissing’ clause for JTHJ?

Shah Rukh Khan had made a rule for himself - never kiss on screen, but he has made an exception for Yash Chopra`s ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ (JTHJ). The superstar says he was "forced" to kiss this time, and says it was only a demand of the script.

"I had a couple of rules actually - that I won`t ride a horse and I won`t kiss. Both are cumbersome. I don`t know how to do both on screen," Shah Rukh said at a media summit here Friday.

Ever since the release of Yash Chopra`s directorial JTHJ Tuesday, social networking platforms have been abuzz about the kiss scene between Shah Rukh and Katrina Kaif. So, moderator Vir Sanghvi, on behalf of Twitterati, asked SRK: How come he kissed this time!

"I will be very honest. Adi (Aditya Chopra), Yash ji and Katrina, and I say this with all humility and thankfulness to them, that they knew I was awkward, I had issues and I am a very easy actor to work with. They are like my family and they said, `You don`t have to do this` and then they got together and they forced me and then even paid me for it."
Why did SRK break his ‘no kissing’ clause for JTHJ?
"So... when heroines say that `I wore a bikini because the story demanded me to`, I did it (the kiss) because the story demanded it. Believe me or don`t believe it," said the 47-year-old actor, who has been in showbiz for over two decades.

Shah Rukh feels doing something as intimate as a kiss on screen, is mechanical.

"It is very mechanical with 100 people telling you what to do. It`s very odd. I don`t even do photoshoots with heroines if it is not for my film and that is also rude, but I don`t want to waste anyone`s time. I find it very awkward taking my shirt off and posing. I can do it in character for film," he said.

But JTHJ was "extremely special because of Yash ji".

"He spoke to everyone and he said `Shah Rukh, this is a requirement`," recollected Shah Rukh.

The actor was extremely close to the late filmmaker, who breathed his last Oct 21 following dengue and subsequent multi-organ failure.

Bal Thackeray’s death: Shah Rukh Khan breaks silence

Several hours after the Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray passed away on Saturday, superstar Shah Rukh Khan finally broke his silence regarding the relationship that the two shared over the past couple of years.

The actor and Thackeray had had a famous fallout after the latter’s Shiv Sena created troubles for SRK’s ‘My Name Is Khan’ in 2010. The party threatened to stop the release of the film following Shah Rukh’s remarks favouring the inclusion of Pakistani cricketers in the Indian Premier League (IPL). In another incident, Balasaheb had criticised SRK for his “misdemeanour” at the Wankhede Stadium.

After the veteran politician passed away yesterday, Shah Rukh took to Twitter to mouth his feelings, “We avoid building bridges out of personal issues & then it gets too late.i should hav gone & met BalaSahib.Will miss our chats R.I.P. sir...”

The actor had earlier expressed his concern over Thackeray’s bad health, “My prayers & wishes for Bala sahibji...may he recover soon & healthy from this battle.”

Balasaheb Thackeray passed away at 3.30 Saturday afternoon. He was 86.

Politics not SRK’s cup of tea

Armed with his trademark dimpled smile and looking dapper in a black tuxedo, Shah Rukh Khan looked all set to face the media along with his current leading lady, Katrina Kaif.
SRK addressed a wide array of issues, from leadership qualities, his association with sports to his disinterest in taking an active role in politics. Katrina remained her reserved self.
Talking about the qualities of a leader at the HT Leadership Summit, he said “I have met many management honchos and political leaders and most of them are the simplest and coolest people. You can’t be a leader by force, you have to deserve it. A good leader takes people along with him. I don’t think I am a leader in any which way. People around me have bolstered me to assume some significant role.”
On being asked whether he would like to associate himself with a political cause or play an active role in politics, SRK said, “I can never be a part of politics. I don’t think that is a part of my job profile and I am very apolitical. This does not mean I don’t want to vote or see improvement in infrastructure, education and economy. I just feel for the nation like any common citizen. My job is to entertain. I like doing that.”
Another thing that does not figure in his list is taking up Hollywood offers. He smiles and says, “I have never really received the best of offers. Besides, I can’t do very good action, dance or look cool. I am not fit for Hollywood.”
Being a sports enthusiast, he is keen to catch up the ongoing Test series between India and England, especially the one that will be held in Kolkata in December.
Although SRK has played a diverse range of characters, somehow he hasn’t really played a Delhiite till date. Being a Delhiite, wouldn’t he like to play one? “I would love to play one. Especially a Haryanvi. I like the language. I hope I am offered a role soon,” he smiles.
He has often been spotted in the city. What does he like to do when he is around? “I like to offer prayers at my parents’ grave. Usually late at night. And I end up eating and sleeping at my in-law’s place,” he says.
SRK also fielded numerous questions about marketing his films, roles that were closer to his heart and his current film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
Known for his brilliant energy, it might be quite intimidating for his co-stars to match steps with him. To this, Katrina revealed, “Well, for the Ishq Shava song (in JTHJ), a complete dance number, I took more than two days to rehearse and get the act correct, while SRK took less than two hours! So yeah, it was scary. But we did manage to do it well at the end, I believe.”
Finally, when Katrina was asked why she chooses to remain quiet while her co-stars do most of the talking, she said, “If you are asking SRK how was it playing Devdas or G.One, how can I respond to that? I can only assume how it might have been. When you ask me a question regarding my career or films, I will definitely answer. Rest, why should I need to open my mouth?” Point well made!

Amitabh Bachchan calls 'JTHJ' SRK's best since 'Swades

Amitabh Bachchan, who returned home later after attending the premiere of late Yash Chopra's "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" (JTHJ), feels it is one of Shah Rukh Khan's finest performances.

Chopra passed away on October 21, just days before the release of his swan song, starring SRK, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. His family decided to go ahead with a gala premiere to as a tribute to Chopra with the who's who of Bollywood attending.

Ironically, Chopra was last photographed on Bachchan's 70th birthday on October 11.

In an early morning post, the actor wrote, "Just back from YRF and the premier of the film 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', followed by a party ... And the film... What can one do, or say about it ... Each portion poetry, each artist at his and her best, and for Shah Rukh his best performance after 'Swades'."
Bachchan was impressed with the old world charm of the studio.

"... And the film and stand alone ambience heatre built of such period architecture, reflecting the carving original of the columns, and the entire ambience in the style of some old castle in early Europe. It was magical... Just the way Yash ji would have wanted."
