It looks like Hrithik Roshan has overtaken Shah Rukh Khan in one important category, the all-time Indian domestic box-office record as his latest film continues to topple box-office records. ‘Krrish 3‘ has passed SRK’s latest film ‘Chennai Express‘ with a robust $36.3 million domestic box-office take compared to the $36.1 million that ‘Chennai Express‘ generated.

The third installment in Hrithik’s super-hero franchise was once again directed by his father Rakesh Roshan and featured Priyanka Chopra and Vivek Oberoi, among others. Despite the success of the film, ‘Chennai Express‘ still made more money overall as it made $19 million overseas compared to the $6.2 million that ‘Krrish 3‘ took in. If you’re looking for the most successful Bollywood movie of all-time, however, you’ll have to look past dashing superheroes or SRK’s action capers to a comedy. That’s right, Aamir Khan‘s 2009 film ‘3 Idiots‘ still holds the title as the most successful Bollywood movie of all time with over $60 million in box-office receipts.

Look to Aamir Khan to try and break his own record with his latest film (and the third installment of another trilogy) ‘Dhoom 3‘, which is set to be released on December 20th. Aamir plays alongside Katrina Kaif, Abhishek Bachchan, and Uday Chopra in the action-thriller that is set in Chicago this time around.  ‘Dhoom 3‘ is the first Indian film to by played in the IMAX format and hits theaters around the Christmas holiday season.

Priyanka Chopra continues her push to conquer America with this latest bit of news. It seems that the Bollywood star and ‘Exotic‘ crooner so impressed Guess president Paul Marciano that he signed her to headline Guess’s Christmas ad campaign after only one meeting.

Priyanka wryly noted “I’m like their first brown model. For a global fashion brand, for them to move their campaign into a global space, for me it’s an honor.”  The actress has already taken some great looking black and white photos for the campaign with photographer Bryan Adams and joins the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Anna Nicole Smith, and Kate Upton as the featured face of Guess clothing.

Priyanka went on to say “I’m not too American and I’m not too Indian, but I’m a global citizen and that’s what most people are today. And I don’t want to have to change who I am to try and fit in or cater to a certain audience. ” The 31-year old first came to prominence when she became the youngest Miss World winner ever at the tender age of 17 back in 2000 and has gone on to star in numerous, highly successful Bollywood productions since then.

You can look for Priyanka to reprise her role as Priya in ‘Krrish 3‘ with co-stars Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan. She has also just announced that her latest single, a solo effort, will drop in December. This follows on successful collaborations with Pitbull and will.i.am on the singles ‘Exotic‘ and ‘In My City‘, respectively.

71 year-old Megastar, Amitabh Bachchan was honored with the Global Diversity Award 2013, at the State Room of Britain’s House of Commons.

Rt Hon John Bercow MP,  the Speaker of the House of Commons, presented the prestigious award to the Bollywood Godfather.  He called  him “a Bollywood icon and the most famous Indian film star of all time.”

He continued to describe the actor as a role model, saying: “You have been a role model and Amitabh you deserve the award.” British actor Hugh Grant was also present at the award ceremony.  Adding, “It is truly a great pleasure meeting Amitabh Bachchan. He is a gigantic actor, super star who is hugely popular. He is also like a saint in some way because of his charity and animal welfare work. If ever anyone who deserves the Global Diversity Award, it is Amitabh Bachchan. Congratulations.”

The ceremony recognized Amitabh as one of the most influential actors in the history of Indian cinema. He’s been seen in over 180 films in the last four decades and continues to make an impact even today.  “He is a Global patron for the diabetes charity Silver Star and last year was presented with a Mobile Diabetes Unit for his home city Mumbai named ‘Amitabh’ in his honor,” the citation said.

He said when Keith Vaz introduced him to the Diabetes awareness campaign, “It has been a great privilege and honor to visit various cities in helping people to tackle diabetes.”

“My father taught English in Allahabad University and in 1952 he was the first Indian to get a Doctorate in English Language at the Cambridge. He completed his Doctorate in two years instead of the normal 4 years.” “There are very few institutions which can boast of such unity as the Film industry.” he added, referring to Bollywood of course.

When Mr Bachchan was asked about his forthcoming plans, he responded by saying “I just did a film called Satyagraha which dealt with socio-political issues. There are several other films in the pipeline including Bhootnath 2. I am also currently busy with the latest Hindi version of Who wants to become a Millionaire.

Remember when Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra sang the intro to last season’s NFL Thursday Night Kickoff?  Well, it seems that Ms Chopra has moved up the ladder, and will be performing for the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football this season.

Rumor has it, the Bollywood bombshell will be replacing R&B singer CeeLo Green.

Having grown up in both New York and Boston, two major [rival] football cities and coincidentally the two teams playing the night of my big debut, it’s nothing short of surreal to be with NFL Network as the opening act for Thursday Night Football. ‘In My City’ was my first single, it has a very special place in my heart, and I am beyond excited to bring the amazing energy of the track to the NFL’s passionate fans,” said Chopra.

Priyanka’s song In My City, featuring Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas, will be used again this year for the opening of Thursday Night’s Football, when the New York Jets visit the New England Patriots. Woohoo!

Each week for 13 weeks this season, NFL Network will move into a new and exciting city and bring fans from around the world with us for a great game. Priyanka’s single ‘In My City’ is the perfect song to set the stage for Thursday Night Football and to welcome viewers to each city,” said Mark Quenzel, the Senior Vice President of Production and Programming for NFL Network.

Keep up the good work Priyanka!

Bollywood Star Shah Rukh Khan Denied Entrance to 2 Multiplex Cinemas!

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was recently refused permission to promote his latest flick, Chennai Express at Mumbai mall multiplex cinemas.

It’s barely been 2 weeks since the release of Chennai Express, and the movie continues to break records at the box-office.  While the actor is busy promoting his film all over Mumbai, he ran into a little trouble at Mumbai mall multiplex cinemas. Reportedly, Shah Rukh declared that he was denied entry at not one, but TWO multiplex theaters in the city on Thursday.

According to sources, the theaters had tighten their rules to avoid large crowds which can potentially lead to chaos and put the public in danger. The theaters are putting the publics safety first and will not allow any promotions outside or inside the theaters.  Khan tweeted “Have been refrained by authorities from visiting PVR Phoenix Kurla and PVR Phoenix Lower Parel..Will see you at the other enlisted theaters.” Have to avoid visiting PVR Phoenix Kurla and PVR Phoenix Lower Parel. Independence day rush etc. Will see you at rest of the enlisted theaters.” he added

We hear the 47-year-old had approached the owners of the theaters for permission to promote his new film but was later denied access.   A source said,  “SRK had been granted the permission by the multiplexes and it was duly advertised. But at the last minute, the mall owners reversed their decision. The reason provided by them for making a U-turn was that SRK’s presence would bring in huge crowds of people and that at the last minute, they hadn’t been able to arrange for adequate man power to control the swelling crowds. On national holidays, the footfall nearly doubles. But if he still decided to come, we are ready to welcome him.”

The last time when a big star had come for a visit, it had resulted in a lot of property damage amounting to huge losses for the owners. This time they want to play safe,” added a mall employee.

Maybe next time he should bring his co-star Deepika Padukone along with him…no?

Actress Amanda Seyfried admits she was a little worried doing nude scenes in Lovelace, where she portrayed a real life porn actress.

The producers of “Deep Throat” (an iconic porn movie,)  cast Amanda Seyfried to play in the biopic of porn actress, Linda Lovelace.

The 27-year old  Hollywood starlet says she was afraid it might hurt her career in the long run.  “The first thing you think about is that it could ruin my career,” said Amanda.   She later admit it wasn’t a big deal stripping for the cameras. “It’s funny, because I felt liberated when I was doing it. I’m sure people that are very protective of me wouldn’t feel very comfortable with that, but it’s like, what’s the big deal?,” she added.

Check out the trailer below.

We wonder if Hollywood will join the latest Bollywood craze, and start casting real life porn stars in movies  ;)
