The Bad shah of Bollywood just can’t seem to keep away from controversy.  The Bollywood King is in hot water again,  but this time he’s being accused of plagiarism.

Recently Shah Rukh Khan attended the AIMA ( All India Management Assocication) where he gave a lengthy speech in which he discussed the various issues facing society.  The 47-year-old is being accused of plagiarizing British author JK Rowling’s speech, which she made at Harvard back in 2008.

Reportedly, SRK had a ghostwriter and resorted to different sources for the speech. The allegations claim he copied Rowlings speech, and did not appropriately credit anyone.   Tsk tsk..

Coincidence?

Veteran TV writer and stand-up comedian Sanjay Shah has just sold an autobiographical sitcom to NBC television. The show will center around the experiences of an immigrant family running a fast food restaurant in Sacramento and focus on the two different sons in this family. Sanjay’s own family owns a Burger King restaurant in Sacramento so he will be culling from his own experience.

Sanjay took a circuitous route to Hollywood himself and originally graduated from Berkley. He began doing stand-up and opened for Russel Peters, then co-wrote a widespread video service called Badmashi which did parodies like ‘The Singhsons’, and then moved on to writing for such acclaimed television shows as ‘King of the Hill’, ‘Cougar Town’, ‘South Park’, ‘Enlisted’, ‘and most recently ‘1600 Penn’.

No word on casting or a possible air date as of yet.

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.

Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, who’s been romantically linked to multiple actresses, says he and Ram Leela co-star, Deepika Padukone have excellent “chemistry.”

The hunky actor told reporters “We were destined to be cast opposite each other. It’s a chemistry between Romeo and Juliet. I hope it works as our chemistry is the driving force of the story.”   Funny, the second he was questioned about the rumors circulating about him and Deepika, he refused to comment.

  Yes, we know what you’re wondering.  Wasn’t he just photographed with Katrina Kaif?

  Uh huh….

Ram Leela is set to release in November.  Make sure to go check out Ranveer and Deepika’s “on-screen chemistry” guys.  Did we mention there are a few hot kissing scenes between the two in the upcoming movie?  When asked about her lip-locking sessions with Ranveer, Deepika responded “I find it amusing when people ask me about lip-lock scenes. As an actor there is no difference between any scene. But when you are working with Sanjay sir, he makes even the simplest scene most difficult. He tweaks the scene in his mind.

  Confused?  So are we..

After receiving widespread acclaim from across the globe, Life of Pi actor, Irrfan Khan is confident that his upcoming flick, The Lunchbox, will make it to the Oscars.

Directed by Ritesh Batra, the film has received a positive response from film festivals world-wide.  It even won the Critic’s Week Viewers Choice Award at Cannes earlier this year.  So, could Irrfan be right?  “The opinion that critics and audiences have and also of those whose opinion matters, they believe if the film is sent from India (for the Oscars), it has the potential to travel forward,” said the actor.

Adding “Hollywood Reporter (tabloid) has also written that ‘we expect the film to be Oscar entry from India’. So this is a possibility with the film. It has this strength, universal appeal, fresh language and story.”

The 46-year old actor feels this is a “huge opportunity and should not be missed out on.”  The movie is set to release on September 20, 2013, and also stars actors Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

When asked why he feels so strongly about this particular film, he replied “The right film should be chosen. It affects the environment, the upcoming generation, it becomes a source of inspiration, it builds our morale that our language can connect with the global world. This perception is not right that only a certain types of films are made in India. Cinema is being explored and flourishing. So, this decision is very important.

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!
