Now that Hrithik Roshan is unattached, he’s not wasting any time chatting it up with the ladies. Here he is photographed with Paris Hilton at a hot spot in Dubai. The heiress was all smiles as she posed for the cameras with the Bollywood superstar. She’s quoted as saying “Hrithik’s a gentleman, very sweet and charming, and we hung out all night. I have heard so much about Bollywood and Hrithik represented India in the most elegant and romantic way! I can’t wait to go back to India.”  

Interesting. We wonder if Hrithik ended the night with a “bang bang” ;)

Bollywood megastar has been found taking time to regroup after his notoriously high profile divorce from wife of 14 years Sussanne Roshan. But the couple go even further back as the 40-year old ‘Krrish 3’ star had known Sussanne since he was twelve and they had officially been together for 17 years.

Hrithik recently released a photo showing him relaxing Indian style with sons Hrehaan (8) and Hridhaan (4) at the Magic Kingdom. He released a photo showing him seated Indian style with the caption “On the road less travelled u must sometime stop and take a picture”. Audiences can next expect to see the Bollywood headliner in ‘Bang Bang’ opposite co-star Katrina Kaif.

It’s been a busy year for Hrithik with a recovery from brain surgery following an on-set accident, let’s hope that he really can enjoy some R & R with his sons while soaking up all the magic and sunshine Disneyland has to offer.

‘Krrish 3’ Breaks ‘Chennai Express’ Box-Office Record

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.

Hrithik before surgery getting into shape for ‘Krrish 3’

Bollywood action-star Hrithik Roshan is out of the hospital and heading back onto the set of his latest film project ‘Bang Bang‘ around mid-November, according to sources.  If you’ll recall, Hrithik had emergency minor surgery on July 7th at Mumbai’s Hinduja Hospital to remove a blood clot in his brain that was discovered on the set of ‘Bang Bang‘.

He said “I am doubly charged and looking forward to resuming my amazing journey with the team of ‘Bang Bang‘ from mid November. We promise to give our best to making the film one of the finest ever…” when asked about his plans for restarting the film shoot.  ‘Bang Bang‘ co-stars Katrina Kaif and is supposed to be an action-adventure film.  The shoot for ‘Bang Bang‘ also had to be pushed back because Hrithik will once again play the role of Krrish in the third installment of the superhero franchise ‘Krrish 3‘ and will be doing publicity in support of the film in early November.

Krrish 3‘ is slated for release on November 4, 2013 and ‘Bang Bang‘s release will be pushed back to October 2, 2014 due to these filming delays.  We here at the World SannaKhan team wish Hrithik a speedy recovery.

In a summer full of broken records by Bollywood films, yet another benchmark has fallen by the wayside as the newly released trailer for ‘Krrish 3‘ has been viewed by more people than any other Bollywood movie.  The trailer received 2.3 million views on its first day on Youtube.com, thus surpassing the old record of 1 million views in one day held by ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan‘, and is up to 12.2 million views in 10 days!

The 3rd installment of the Indian superhero franchise will yet again have Hrithik Roshan playing titular superhero Krishna Mehra along with Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi, Shaurya Chauhan, and Kangna Ranaut.

Let’s take a look at the trailer and see what all the fuss is about, shall we?

Not bad, you half expect Dr. Octupus and Spiderman to jump on screen and join the battles! The movie’s release date is set for Diwali 2013 (Sunday, November 3) but the movie has faced some unexpected delays including Hrithik’s brain surgery from a stunt accident and Shaurya Chauhan’s injury from an unrelated accident on set.

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.

‘Exotic’ Singer and Bollywood Star Priyanka Chopra Celebrates Birthday!

In what must truly be a bittersweet birthday following the recent passing of her beloved father, Priyanka Chopra turned 31 today.  The ‘Exotic‘ singer and ‘Andaaz‘/’Barfi‘ actress seems to be enjoying a subdued birthday this year and has asked family and friends not to throw her a party or give her any presents given the recent events following the culmination of her father’s long battle with cancer.

Chopra should be celebrating the success of her collaboration with Pitbull on the single ‘Exotic‘ and her soon to be released Disney film ‘Planes‘ that will mark her debut to American audiences.  Indian audiences can next expect the busy star in ‘Zanjeer‘ with Tollywood star Ram Charan on September 6, 2013 and in the superhero film ‘Krish 3‘ with Hrithik Roshan on November 4, 2013.

Is there a special someone whom the statuesque beauty and former Miss World is spending time with these days?  The aspiring singer has been linked to everyone from Gerard Butler, Akshay Kumar, Harman Baweja, Shahid Kapoor, the very married Shah Rukh Khan, to Ranbir Kapoor.  These days some in the press have once again linked her to Shahid Kapoor, but the notoriously private Priyanka isn’t making any journalist’s life easier by telling.

Let’s hope she has a wonderful birthday and continues her great run in Bollywood!

Here’s a little video of Priyanka’s 2012 IIFA Tribute to Legendary Actress Rekha to remind us of the multi-hyphenate actress/singer’s talent:

We here at World SannaKhan wish Priyanka a Happy Birthday and Many Great Returns!

Bollywood Glamour Lures Chinese Muslims to India?!?!

Well, this is a first.  It seems that Indian security forces recently picked up a trio of knife-wielding Chinese Muslims who had crossed the border from Kargalilik, in Western Xianjang province in China, into India.  What lured these men into India and  almost unwittingly causing an international incident? Espionage?  Some fiendish plot?  Sightseeing???  Why, the answer is much more simple.  Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan made them do it!  Er, well, at least the allure of Bollywood made them venture into India.

“Come on over to India, the land of milk and honey!! Er, or lassi and ras malai! Don’t you agree Shah Rukh?”

In a plot straight out of a movie (take note Bollywood producers, hint, hint…) the men, who only spoke Uighur, were given the impression that India was a land of prosperity thanks to the Bollywood movies they had seen.  So ,like any men hailing from an impoverished area of China, they decided to seek their fame and fortune in India.  Well, Kashmir to be exact as that’s where they were reportedly headed.  Unluckily, they were intercepted by Indian forces who were perplexed by what Chinese Muslims armed with only swords and knives were doing in India.  A translator later, the men’s true aim was discovered.  They just wanted to be where every shy girl turns out to be gorgeous and everything is done with a song and dance routine!

Hooray for Bollywood, I guess?
