Aleady arguably Bollywood’s biggest star isn’t resting on his laurels as Shah Rukh Khan is heading to New Zealand to wow crowds with a one night show!  SRK is set to star in a one night production of his ‘Temptation‘ show with a cast of 110.  Don’t think that tickets will come cheap for this spectacle as they range from $199 all the way up to $650!

SRK has been in the news lately for his latest hit ‘Chennai Express‘ with Deepika Padukone and his ongoing legal troubles seemingly ending. SRK has been cleared by a Mumbai court in charges that he performed a sex-determination test on his latest progeny Abram.

The show will happen on October 4th in Auckland and has fellow Bollywood stars Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukerjee, and former Miss Sri Lanka turned actress Jacqueline Fernandez. The show will also be making stops in Sydney and Perth, Australia later on.

Brits Vote Amitabh Bachchan Greatest Bollywood Star of All Time

He was the angry young man of Bollywood in the ’70’s and is now the elder statesman of the industry in the new century, but whichever Amitabh you prefer he’s the greatest in British voters’ eyes.  In a new poll taken by British Asian weekly newspaper Eastern Eye, Bachchan beat out all challengers to be voted #1 in the ‘100 Greatest Bollywood Stars‘ survey the paper conducted recently.

Amitabh Bachchan‘s career has spanned everything from his early hits ‘Sholay‘ and ‘Deewar‘ to a stint as a gameshow host in ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati‘ to a less illustrious term in government. The Big B is the only Bollywood star to have his likeness cast in wax at Madame Tussad’s Wax Museum in London and even carried the torch for India in the 2012 London Olympics.  Bachchan’s career has spanned an incredible 40 years and he’s still going strong at 70 with stars half his age clamoring to work with the legend.

He has an incredibly full slate with his next film, the highly political ‘Satyagraha‘, coming out on August 30 2013 and no fewer than four films slated for release in the next few years.  Bollywood legend and Bachchan’s own choice as the greatest Dilip Kumar came in second with Shah Rukh Khan a close third, Madhuri Dixit the top female star at fourth, and Raj Kapoor rounding out the list at fifth.

The humble Bachchan once said “I have never really been confident about my career at any stage…” and that “Frankly I’ve never really subscribed to those adjectives tagging me as an ‘icon’, ‘superstar’, etc. I’ve always thought of myself as an actor doing his job to the best of his ability.”  Well Mr. Bachchan, I think you can finally relax a bit and rest on your laurels as one of the greatest Bollywood actors ever!

‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ Set to Open on May 31st!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is set to open on May 31st after a slight delay from its original opening date of March 2013.  The Bollywood Romantic film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone as the leads, Adita Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin in supporting roles, and a special guest appearance by Madhuri Dixit in the dance numbers.  This is Ranbir Kapoor’s second time with director Ayan Mukerji following their initial pairing in the 2008 hit Bachna Ae Haseeno. Multi-talented director, producer, screenwriter, costume designer, television host, actor Karan Johar limited himself to producing this time out.

Deepika Padukone is especially keen on the movie being a smash hit after having beat out Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma for the lead female role, declaring “I need to topple my previous best with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.” Deepika is Ranbir’s ex-girlfriend so they should have onscreen chemistry by the boatload!  Although Ranbir and Deepika are the leads, seemingly timeless Madhuri Dixit may have stolen the show!!!

Let’s take a look at a the song ‘Ghagra’ featuring both Dixit and Kapoor:

 

Madhuri Dixit definitely adds a touch of classic Bollywood allure to the number and still has moves that would shame a woman half her age…. Not bad for someone who just turned 46!!

The soundtrack was composed by Pritam with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya and the film itself was shot in exotic locales including Udaipur, Rajistan, Paris, and Kashmir.

The film itself centers around the travels of a group of friends and the fun adventure they encounter along the way.

Let’s hope the film is half as fun as the trailer promises…..
