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?

The angry young man of Bollywood turned elder statesman can now add another hyphenate to his stellar career, Hollywood actor with top-tier representation!  In a great piece of news, Amitabh Bachchan has signed with hot, new Hollywood agency Resolution.  No doubt that Anil Kapoor had a hand in bringing Amitabh over to stateside representation as Anil is represented by mega-agent David Unger at Resolution.

It’s likely that Resolution is seeking to build on Amitabh’s great cameo as Jewish gangster Meyer Wolfsheim in ‘The Great Gatsby‘.  He more than held his own in pivotal scenes with Hollywood mega-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in the Baz Luhrman directed vehicle. The film was based on the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name and went on to gross over $330 million worldwide.

No word on any upcoming Hollywood projects to Amitabh yet, but he’s currently filming Bollywood film ‘Welcome Back‘ with stars Anil Kapoor and John Abraham.  We’ll keep you posted on any of Amitabh’s future films, both Hollywood and Bollywood, and we’re sure there will be many more Hollywood projects in his future with such strong representation.

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.
