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.

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.
