Salman Khan looks to ‘Kick” SRK out of Top Spot on Eid!

Looks like Salman Khan is trying to regain his spot on top of the Bollywood mountain as his new movie ‘Kick‘ has opened to stellar box office returns already since its July 25 release. Many Bollywood movies look to capitalize on the traditionally strong release date of Eid, a festival that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and Shah Rukh Khan was no different last year with his box office hit ‘Chennai Express‘. Salman probably felt a bit slighted as his films usually ruled the Bollywood screens on Eid, with his past films ‘Wanted‘, ‘Dabaang‘, and the 4th highest grossing Bollywood film ‘Ek Tha Tiger‘ representing his recent stranglehold on the holiday. Well, ‘Kick’ is off to a good start as it has already made 86 crore (roughly $14.5 million) in its opening weekend. 

 ‘Kick‘ is an action-romance hybrid in which Salman plays a character named Devil who seeks to truly seize the moment everyday, resulting in action packed scenes that even have Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan taking notice. Amitabh was so impressed with ‘Kick’s chase sequence, supposedly the longest ever in a Bollywood film, that he took a shot at Hollywood when he stated “Did you see the trailer of ‘KICK’..baaadooom !! Compares with anything that the other ‘wood’ brings out from their high end films ! See for yourself” and linked to a trailer of ‘Kick’. 

 Here’s that trailer of ‘Kick’, which also features co-star Jacquline Fernandez….

 

 
Well, what do you think folks? Will Salman take down Shah Rukh on Eid in this battle for Bollywood supremacy? Will ‘Kick‘ put ‘Chennai Express’ on a slow train to nowhere? I guess you’ll just have to stay tuned….

Seal Explodes in Twitter Tirade Against Australian Media!

In an interesting bit of news crooner Seal exploded in a Twitter rampage against Australian media after his good friend and fellow ‘The Voice Australia‘ judge/Good Charlotte guitarist and backup vocalist Benji Madden was kicked out of the Australian casino hotel he was staying in after authorities discovered a small amount of marijuana in his room.

Seal tweeted “Way to respect a guest in your country trash media, way to make us feel welcome” through his Twitter account on June 13th and followed that up with “Keep it up…. sure we’ll be back next year. And yes, I say we, because it’s just a matter of time before you gun us all down.  I for one will not stand by and watch you attempt to destroy my Brother, you gun one you gun us all!.”

After that Seal wasn’t quite done with his tirade and continued by slamming the Star Casino in which Madden was staying by tweeting “Shame on the Star…you ask him to meet n greet a cancer victim in your hotel room then send police to his room? Nice….very classy…keep it up Judas. I’m done here.”  He later backtracked furiously with a tweet blaming his earlier rant on being away from his children for 11 weeks and voiced his love for Australia and ‘The Voice Australia‘ along with it’s Aussie talent.

This story has everything, cancer patients, drugs, angry Seals.  Maybe the cannibas belonged to the cancer patient visiting Madden who was using it as medical marijuana and just happened to leave it behind?  Perhaps Seal should follow the advice of one of his earlier hits, “Don’t Cry.”……
