Bollywood Star Shah Rukh Khan Denied Entrance to 2 Multiplex Cinemas!

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was recently refused permission to promote his latest flick, Chennai Express at Mumbai mall multiplex cinemas.

It’s barely been 2 weeks since the release of Chennai Express, and the movie continues to break records at the box-office.  While the actor is busy promoting his film all over Mumbai, he ran into a little trouble at Mumbai mall multiplex cinemas. Reportedly, Shah Rukh declared that he was denied entry at not one, but TWO multiplex theaters in the city on Thursday.

According to sources, the theaters had tighten their rules to avoid large crowds which can potentially lead to chaos and put the public in danger. The theaters are putting the publics safety first and will not allow any promotions outside or inside the theaters.  Khan tweeted “Have been refrained by authorities from visiting PVR Phoenix Kurla and PVR Phoenix Lower Parel..Will see you at the other enlisted theaters.” Have to avoid visiting PVR Phoenix Kurla and PVR Phoenix Lower Parel. Independence day rush etc. Will see you at rest of the enlisted theaters.” he added

We hear the 47-year-old had approached the owners of the theaters for permission to promote his new film but was later denied access.   A source said,  “SRK had been granted the permission by the multiplexes and it was duly advertised. But at the last minute, the mall owners reversed their decision. The reason provided by them for making a U-turn was that SRK’s presence would bring in huge crowds of people and that at the last minute, they hadn’t been able to arrange for adequate man power to control the swelling crowds. On national holidays, the footfall nearly doubles. But if he still decided to come, we are ready to welcome him.”

The last time when a big star had come for a visit, it had resulted in a lot of property damage amounting to huge losses for the owners. This time they want to play safe,” added a mall employee.

Maybe next time he should bring his co-star Deepika Padukone along with him…no?

Reportedly, Bollywood actor Salman Khan and rumored gf Iulia Vantur took a trip to the actors parents home.

We know what everyone is thinking. Sallu never settles down and he’s even admitted in interviews that he’s a terrible boyfriend. With that said, we still hope to see the bachelor tie the knot sometime and judging by the rumors, Ms Vantur could be the one.

According to sources, Iulia doesn’t know anyone in India, therefore, Salman decided it was a good idea to take her to his parents house, where we hear Iulia is staying. Which of course led to marriage speculations and all that good stuff. When asked, Salman’s father Salim Khan, denied any wedding rumors tied to his son and the Romanian beauty.

Is the most bankable Bollywood actor finally settling down? Could Iulia just be a really good friend? Hmm….we will have to wait and find out!

Iulia Vantur is a Romanian TV actress and host. The two met a couple years ago when Salman was on a trip abroad and have kept in touch since then. The couple has been spotted everywhere together and have been rumored to be seriously dating for a while.

‘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…..

What is World SannaKhan and what do we do?

Simply put, World SannaKhan is the online intersection where Bollywood Meets Hollywood.  As the world increasingly becomes interconnected through technology and the mass-dissemination of information it is inevitable that cultures will interact as never before.  Bollywood, not Hollywood, is in actuality the world’s largest film industry in film output and it’s worldwide influence is growing every year.  For instance, did you know that India’s Reliance Entertainment has been an equal partner in Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios since 2009?

Bollywood can be loosely defined as the Indian film industry and is based in Mumbai, India.  Both Bollywood and Hollywood have their own firmament of stars, and we here at World SannaKhan intend to cover them both. We keep you informed with daily news, interviews, event coverage and other cultural movers and shakers that interest you most.

It all started when former Radio DesiBeat Radio Jockey, Sanna Khan AKA Sunny D, noticed that Hollywood and Bollywood’s worlds were increasingly intermingling with Indian/Pakistani actors appearing more and more in American productions and vice versa. Mainstream Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise, John Hamm, and others have voiced their interest in appearing in Bollywood movies and Bollywood has increasingly drawn on Hollywood talent, onscreen and otherwise, to produce films.  Seizing on this unique moment in the history of both Bollywood and Hollywood, Sanna Khan decided to create a site dedicated to the coverage of both industries and thus, World SannaKhan was born!
