SRK to work with south director

Grapevine has it that the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan will play the lead role in the Hindi remake of 'Kanchana'. It is also said that choreographer-director-actor Lawrence, a popular face in the south who directed the original, will be directing the remake as well. If all goes well, Lawrence will be directing the King Khan in his B-town debut! It can't get bigger for this multi-faceted film personality from the south. It was earlier said that Lawrence will be directing this film in Hindi with Salman Khan as the hero, but it now looks like his arch rival SRK will be seen in the lead. However as rumour mills had earlier, Sanjay Dutt will be seen in the role of 'Kanchana' itself, a role reprised by Sarath Kumar in the original. 'Kanchana' is a horror flick in Tamil which made waves due to the script which had a good dosage of comic elements and had a reach with audience of all age groups. The film had a strong social message intertwined with it in a …

Top 5 People Who Deserve Bharat Ratna

Wikipedia describes Bharat Ratna as "the Republic of India's highest civilian award, awarded for the highest degrees of national service" which includes "artistic, literary, and scientific achievements, as well as "recognition of public service of the highest order." Bharat Ratna literally translates to 'gem of India' which means a person who is a prized possession of the nation. A true Bharat Ratna is a person that has brought laurels that are irreplaceable or offered services that helped in the betterment of the entire country. The Bharat Ratna awardees of the past have surely been worthy recipients but there are some people that have gone unnoticed despite having some mighty impressive work behind them. This list showcases some such personalities that are, indeed, the greatest assets of our country and deserve to win the Bharat Ratna.

Khan Almighty: Shahrukh Conquers Cover of LA Times Calender

He is revered as the ‘King of Bollywood’ back in India, and after two high-profile forays onto the international scene–”My Name is Khan” (2010) and “Ra.One” (2011)–the force known as Shahrukh Khan is unstoppable.

It’s not often that an Indian actor appears on the cover of any American media outlet, save for Freida Pinto, whose “Slumdog Millionaire” would hardly count as a Bollywood production. Hence we did a near double-take when a suited up Khan gazed out of the front page of the “LA Times” calendar section, flashing his wedding ring, no less.

The paper’s Nov. 4 edition has a feature outlining Khan’s success and appeal, dating back to his humble beginnings in New Delhi before catching a break in Mumbai in 1991. Khan told the LA Times: “I was driving down a small lane in India recently, and I remembered that 20 years ago I was driving down the same lane, and I had maybe 10 or 20 dollars in my pocket. I couldn’t believe all that had happened to me. I feel lucky and even guilty to have…

How much you know about Sex

Sex; it’s one of the most thought about subjects, but how much do we really know? Our knowledge of sex is often confused by rumours, misconceptions and outright lies. So, dust off your magnifying glass, pull out your probes and apply your long, investigative, latex gloves – it’s myth busting time:A woman can’t get pregnant when it’s her first time The notion that a woman cannot get pregnant the first time she has sex is still a commonly held belief.
