Shahrukh Khan and Shilpa Shetty might not have had shared the screen space for long. But on a personal level Shilpa has always been there for SRK. Actually, SRK is gearing up for London shooting schedule of Ra.One and the gorgeous Shilpa will be all food for the unit members from chain of restaurants owned by her and husband Raj Kundra.
Shilpa is all ready with grand welcome and special arrangements for the cast and crew of Ra.One. The sources confirmed that Shilpa received a call from one of the production unit members regarding the food supply and she was all game for it.
Shah Rukh Khan is busy with his home production Ra.One in Goa. The movie is shaping up well, we hear. Now the director Anubhav Sinha wanted to shoot in a local train. He had the option of shooting on real sites. But permission and timings would be a problem. So SRK had a brainwave and he got his art directors to build a train for the movie. It took some effort getting the train ready but it was certainly worth it.
Lara Dutta is the latest star to join Farhan Akhtar’s Don 2. The actress has been cast alongside Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Rampal — all three who have been retained from its prequel Don.
And though producer Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan are tight-lipped about her role, a source revealed that the actress is touted to play a femme fatale in this slick-flick. However, whether Lara will be seen vying for SRK’s attention alongside Priyanka remains to be seen. A source said, “Lara’s not replacing Eesha (Koppikhar). She’s a completely new addition to the cast with an entirely new part written for her. But yes, the role will require Lara to learn some form of martial arts and she is very kicked about doing an action role.”
Generally it happens that the makers of the film hold special screenings for friends and film fraternity. But Shahrukh Khan, in a party mood as usual, reportedly had a private screening of Kites for Hrithik Roshan, his wife Sussanne Roshan and Barbara Mori at Mannat.
According to a daily, it was a small party two days ago mainly attended by the friends of Shahrukh and Gauri. And since Hrithik was busy with the film’s promotion, it was Sussanne and Barbara who came first to the party. Hrithik arrived quite late and was welcomed with flattering compliments from everyone for his performance in ‘Kites’.
Another example of King Khan’s helping nature... SRK who never forgets those who have helped him in shaping his career and filmmaker Karan Johar is one of them.
The latest news is that Shah Rukh Khan will lend his voice for Karan Johar’s ‘I Hate Luv Storys’, starring Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor.
According to sources, Karan wanted someone sounding like Raj from DDLJ to introduce the characters of his film and wanted it to be done in a simple manner. But SRK was never excited about doing voiceovers and has turned down a few offers in past but a request from Karan is something different which he cannot refuse.
