Leaving his personal life back in India, 64-year-old Bollywood legend, Om Puri is in Southern France with Oscar winning actress, Helen Mirren, shooting The Hundred Foot Journey, a Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey production.

The cheerful actor tells reporters that he and his estranged wife, Nandita Puri and ex-wife Seema Kapoor,  are in the middle of a very public battle in India, and that he’s grateful to have left his troubles behind him for a short time.  The actor faces domestic abuse charges back home and is in no hurry to return.  “I am far from the miseries of home and enjoying my stay here. I and Helen share a great rapport and that makes the shoot all the more enjoyable.” said Puri.   Indian actor Manish Dayal, will also be joining the cast.

The film circles around an Indian family which moves to France and starts their own restaurant across the street from Michelin, a three-star French restaurant, which is ran by Helen Mirren.  Puri plays a family man who falls for Helen’s character. Ooh La La!  “The romance is a spiritual one rather than being physical in its nature and as of now we have not shot any lovemaking scenes,” said the 64-year old.

The film is based on a novel by Richard C. Morais.

Sources have put Katrina Kaif on the top of a list that includes Ankita Lokhande, Jennifer Winget, and Simran Kaur Mundi to star in Shah Rukh Khan‘s next film ‘Happy New Year‘.  The actress has had some extra time on her hands with co-star Hrithik Roshan‘s brain surgery pushing their film ‘Krrish 3‘ back to later in the year.  She has been spotted with her alleged boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor vacationing in Sri Lanka while he’s preparing for his next film ‘Bombay Velvet‘.  Kapoor’s co-star on that film will be Anushka Sharma.  Word has it that Katrina will sign on as soon as she returns to Mumbai from vacation.

Going back to ‘Happy New Year‘, it seems the film will commence a 40-day shoot on September 5 with ‘Om Shanti Om‘ director Farah Khan on board.  The film features SRK as an over the top kind of lover, something the always passionate Khan first played in 1995’s ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge‘.   ‘Happy New Year‘s plot revolves around a group of male friends who have to enter a dance competition for some reason.  Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani round out the cast as SRK’s friends.

This has been an eventful year for SRK following controversy around the birth of his son AbRam and the alleged use of a surrogate mother, a shoulder injury on set that required surgery, and the difficulties he’s encountered in finding a leading lady for ‘Happy New Year‘ but it all seems to finally coming together for the megastar.  He’s even invited his fans in Dubai for an iftar at Arabian Center for the release of his movie ‘Chennai Express‘ on August 1.  Co-star Deepika Padukone and director Rohit Shetty will also be on hand for the fan event, but no word on if they’ll be fasting as well.
