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.

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.

Shah Rukh Khan’s Kids Not Crazy About Fame

With his latest film ‘Chennai Express‘, co-starring Deepika Padukone, doing well at theaters and his beautiful family celebrating Eid as well, Shah Rukh Khan has a lot to celebrate these days.  So, like any doting superstar father, SRK decided to come out with his lovely wife and children to wave at his fans and pose for pictures outside his home ‘Mannat‘ in Bandra.  The only problem with this is that it seems SRK’s kids don’t like all the fuss and bother that comes along with having a superstar father!

Speaking of his impromptu post-prayers appearance with his family outside his home SRK said “I enjoy celebrating functions with fans… I can’t be alone. Now that my kids are grown up, I would like them also to say hello to all those who made me who I am today.” How did 15-year old son Aryan and 13-year old daughter Suhana feel about it? Well, SRK goes on to say “They were feeling embarrassed, shy and were even angry but I feel they should do this.”

This isn’t the first time SRK has gone on record about his kids, once Tweeting that “My teenage son is slowly turning into half man half mattress…” when referring to son Aryan.  But don’t worry, SRK is still a doting father as he sent Aryan to school in London to avoid the media glare of being a famous Bollywood star’s son in India.  He also once Tweeted “5 am high. I love to pick my son from the airport. My father picked me from the bus stand. He’s gone a long way or I have come a long way baby!” so you can tell SRK definitely loves his children.

And what does SRK’s home ‘Mannat’, which means “wish” or “desire” in Urdu, look like?  Well, here’s a video that gives us a glimpse inside SRK’s palatial home:

A little bit like Tony Montana‘s home in ‘Scarface‘, eh?  But overall, not bad!  Hey, we’re thinking if Daddy Khan wants you to go outside and wave at all the little people who go to the movies that keep the lights on in your house (and there seem to be a lot of lights!!!!), then maybe the kiddies can do their best pageant wave and call it a day.

Or maybe we should just be glad that Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri aren’t pulling a Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith by pushing their kids down our throats ala Willow Smith and Jaden Smith…. Punjabi ‘Whip My Hair‘ anyone?

Chopra has been training religiously to fit the part of Mary Kom– but if you look at the real Mary Kom, she looks absolutely nothing like Priyanka Chopra. So how will they pull this off? According to sources, they will be creating her look in the post-production stage at Shah Rukh Khan’s VFX Studios, making Priyanka look more oriental by digitally modifying her face.”The film is about a woman boxing champion and there are a number of sequences in the boxing ring. Obviously, there will be a lot of punching on the face and head, so prosthetics may not last. To help Priyanka get that authentic look, technicians will be working on giving her the Northeastern features in the post-production VFX stage,” says  a source according to The Times of India.

Director Omung Kumar hasn’t confirmed exactly which route they are taking for makeup , but they are looking into all options to make this work.
