Unlike Anurag Kashyap's more elaborate ode to Amitabh Bachchan by making a short film on him in Bombay Talkies, actor-filmmaker Makarand Deshpande paid a more unique tribute to King Khan. In Deshpande's National Award winning satire Bakrapur, the pivotal character is of a goat named Shah Rukh.
Filmmaker Janaki Vishwanathan wanted to study the trend in rural India to name their pets after popular stars. While the film was mainly a comedy, it revolves around a sensitive story of a little boy and his pet goat.
Explaining why Janaki wanted Shah Rukh, she emphasized that after hunting for the best goats in the village, they found the most handsome one of all called Shah Rukh. The name itself means Emperor faced. Janaki herself is rest assured that Shah Rukh would not take any offense to the film as he has a vast and quirky sense of humor, and frequently cracks self depreciating jokes.
Interestingly, earlier Deshpande had also made a film on SRK named Shahrukh Bola Khubsurat Hai Tu, which unfortunately failed to impress many people.

Yet another cousin of Priyanka Chopra is all set to take baby steps into Bollywood. Meera Chopra will be making her B-Town debut in Vikram Bhatt's upcoming installment of 1920
Sources say ever since the film's initial heroine Prachi Desai stepped out of the project due to date problems, the makers had been looking for a replacement. And Meera will now step into Prachi's shoes.
Says Vikram, `I had met Meera for another film. Third of the Chopra sisters, she is ravishing and obviously comes with what we call a film background. She is quite a dynamo and we are all glad with her now joining the cast.
The film goes on the floors next month and the rest of the details are yet to be finalised.

Sajid Khan's film "Himmatwala" failed badly at the box office in the second week and has been declared a disaster.
Sajid Khan was pretty over-confident with the remake and said that the film will be Ajay Devgn's biggest release of his career. Despite strong expectations, the film bombed at the box office.
Ajay, who reprised the heroism of the 80s era, was extremely positive about the film because of the buzz it created prior to the release. The actor, known for playing action-oriented roles, has came out of his comfort zone and worked with Sajid Khan.
"This was the first time Ajay had stepped out of his comfort zone of working with directors like Rohit Shetty, Prakash Jha or Ashwini Dhar to join hands with Sajid. He is extremely disappointed with the film's results," Mid-Day quoted an insider as saying.
The National Award winning actor has given back-to-back hits in the last two year, but Sajid's "Himmatwala" has put a full stop to that. His previous films like "Golmaal 3", "Singham", "Bol Bachchan" and "Son of Sardaar" were all box office hits and also crossed the ₹100 crore mark.
"Himmatwala' might not be able to earn the production cost of the film. Moreover, the film has disappointed critics as well as viewers. Ajay is extremely disappointed with the film's result at box office. He has now asked director Rohit Shetty to work quickly on the next film "Singham 2" to revive his star status.
"Ajay wants to restore his lost glory at the box office and has asked his trusted aide Rohit to speed up things on their next. They have done nine films together out of which eight have been hits," the daily quoted another insider as saying.
At present, Ajay is also shooting for Prakash Jha's "Satyagraha" in Bhopal with megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal.

Shah Rukh for Farhan's Initiative, M.A.R.D (Men Against Rape & Discrimination)
Shah Rukh shooting for M.A.R.D. campaign Farhan Akhtar to distribute 70,000 fake moustaches at T20 game to promote
initiative on gender equality. Filmmaker-actor Farhan Akhtar now seems
to have turned social activist. To spread the word about his initiative — MARD: Men Against Rape and Discrimination — he has tied up with the on-going T20 tournament. "On April 26, he will distribute 70,000 fake moustaches among those present at the Eden
Gardens in Kolkata. The match between Shah Rukh Khan's team (Kolkata Knight Riders) and Preity Zinta's team (Kings XI Punjab) will take place there," says a source, adding, "During the match, everyone,
including Shah Rukh and Preity, will wear the
moustaches, which is the symbol of the initiative. Since Eden Gardens is one of the biggest stadiums in the country, Farhan is
hoping to reach out to more people." Disturbed by the assault and murder of an Excel Entertainment (Farhan's production
house) employee in Mumbai in August 2012,
Farhan conceived the idea of MARD. He officially launched it in March this year, using social media as the primary platform.
Since then, he has been using Twitter and Facebook regularly to create buzz online for the same.According to an insider, this will be the
first on-ground awareness-building activity for the
initiative. "Farhan has taken it upon himself to spread awareness about gender equality. He has been urging people to adopt the message," says a source.

King Khan, like his arch rival Salman Khan, has always been the best of friends with Sanjay Dutt. And our feathered friend from Bandra tells us that Baadshah Khan arrived late last night at Dutt's residence to pacify the actor.
It was quite an emotional moment when SRK expressed his concern for the Policegiri star and had a talk with him as well as his wife Manyata Dutt. It's learnt that Shahrukh stayed at Sanju's place for a couple of hours and the two had an intense and emotional conversation.
Dutt has been sentenced to five years imprisonment by the Supreme Court for illegal possession of arms in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case and many celebrities have visited him ever since. Sanjay has already filed a review petition but it's quite unlikely that he will be able to get out of the legal mess any time soon.
Meanwhile, the actor is working round the clock to complete his movie assignments before he surrenders himself in a couple of days.

This week's new Hindi releases Nautanki Saala and Commando have received an excellent opening at the Indian Box Office. In the first weekend, the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer has topped the collection chart, while the Vidyut Jamwal starrer landed in the second spot. Meanwhile, last week's release Chashme Baddoor, which has graced third spot, seemed to be giving tough competition to the new releases. Nautanki Saala is a romantic comedy and had a bigger release at multiplexes. Whereas Commando is an action thriller and it went wide in single screens. The Ayushmann Khurrana starrer fetched a decent start at multiplexes of major centres, while the Vidyut Jamwal starrer had a better start at single screens of mass-dominated belt on Friday. Commando, which did better collection than Nautanki Saala on their opening day, showed dip on Saturday, while the business of the latter went up. Nautanki Saala has collected Rs 11.75 crores nett at domestic Box Office in the first weekend and its breakup is Rs 3.25 cr on Fri, Rs 4 cr on Sat and Rs 4.5 cr on Sun. Whereas Commando has raked in Rs 11.08 crores nett at desi Box Office in three days and its breakup is Rs 3.69 cr on Fri, Rs 3.39 cr on Sat and Rs 4 cr on Sun. Both films would eventually turn out to be decent earners by the end of the first week.

Vidyut Jamwal Commando may have collected good numbers on Day 1 than Nautanki Saala, but the movie couldn't sustain on Day 2. The movie, which made an opening day business of 3.70 Crores, couldn't pick up on Saturday i.e. yesterday.
In fact the collection saw a slight drop. Adding more 3.40 Crores in its kitty, Commando now stands at a Domestic total of about 7.10 Crores at the Box Office. This Vidyut Jamwal and Pooja Chopra starrer is performing good in mass circuits and single screens only.
Directed by Dilip Ghosh, Commando is produced by Vipul Shah, and the project has been heavily promoted with multi-city tours and through TV shows. Moreover, the positive word of mouth and with decent reviews from the critics should help the film to make good business at the Box Office today and in the coming weekdays.

NAUTANKI SAALA Crosses 11.50 cr Nett Over Weekend
"Nautanki Saala" started slowly at box office on Friday morning like most of other releases this year. But film grew from evening onwards and witnessed substantial jump on Saturday.
Film''s good word of mouth did the trick and film again jumped on Sunday. As per early estimates, film should collect 4.40 cr nett taking film''s 1st weekend total to 11.50 cr nett.
According to our view film should collect 18 cr nett over the week one and from there on its lifetime total will depend on how good it performs in 2nd week.
Below are the collections for the film -
Friday 3.25 cr
Posted: 14 Apr 2013 05:56 PM PDT
Commando dropped slightly on Saturday as it grossed around 3.25-3.50 crore nett against the 3.50 crore nett on Friday while Nautanki Saala showed good growth collecting around 3.75-4 crore nett on Saturday against the 3 crore nett on Friday.
Both films were up at multiplexes but Commando dropped at places where it had started well and these places were mainly single screen dominated circuits.
Both films have similar two day business of around 7 crore nett and Sunday becomes the all important day. It will be interesting to see which film comes out on top as after two days the nett business is the same though Commando is still ahead on the all important distributor and the costs involved in the two films are also similar.

Commando had a decent opening at single screens at around 40-50% which is pretty good compared to low 15% opening at multiplexes. UP, Rajasthan and CI all had decent figures.
The film is scoring over Nautanki Saala due to the business in single screens though Nautanki Saala being a multiplex film may get a bit better in the evening.
Commando has chances to cross the 3 crore nett mark on day one due to single screens while Nautanki Saala depends on the evening crowds otherwise it will be 30-35% lower than Commando going by afternoon trends. Eventually both the film's fate depends on Saturday and Sunday growth as apart from Commando at single screens in ceratin circuits the initials are dull.

Commando and Nautanki Saala had low openings as both films opened to around 15%. The big city multiplexes were better for Nautanki Saala while smaller cities like Bhopal, Kota etc were better for Commando.
Both films are well short of the start taken by Chasme Bhaddoor last week and that film picked up well through the day which Commando and Nautanki Saala will be hoping to do.
Nautanki Saala could have the edge as these type of films are more likely to pick up while action fares like Commando tend to show less growth. Overall Commando has a bigger release due to single screens while Nautanki Saala probably has around 10% shows more at multiplexes.

Vicky Donor actor Ayushmann Khurranna is ready to tickle your funny bone once again with Nautanki Saala, which releases today.
But this time he is not alone and is joined by Delhi Belly actor Kunaal Roy Kapur.
Directed by Rohan Sippy, Nautanki Saala also has Pooja Salvi and Evelyn Sharma playing the female leads.
Going by the promos, Nautanki Saala is likely to be a crowd puller despite being released in the second week of the ongoing IPL 6.
The comedy directed by Rohan Sippy is the story of Ram Parmar played by Ayushmann and Mandar Lele (Kunaal) and their true friendship.
The movie has been made on a very low budget but Rohan Sippy is confident that the people wont be able to sense it.
Nautanki Saala releases with an action-packed movie Commando starring Vidyut Jamwal and Pooja Chopra in the lead.
Commando is the first solo by the 34-year-old actor. Vidyut had played the role of a dreaded gangster 'Vishnu' in john Abraham starrer Force, which earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.
Commando directed by Dilip Ghosh has been produced by Vipul Shah, who already has plans to produce the sequel of his high-octane action film.
Vidyut, who sports a six pack ab in the movie, is very confident about the movie and says he is not worried about it releasing with IPL.
Vidyut Jamwal has also done some daredevil stunts in Commando and says he wants to be typecast as an action hero.
"I am born to do action. I can't see myself doing anything else. It is not a good thing to say but I want to be typecast as an action hero. I don't want to do a movie that has no action," Jamwal told PTI.
Commando is the story of an Indian Army officer, who during a training session gets inside Chinese Border by mistake. The film chronicles his struggle to get back.

Indo-Canadian adult film star, Sunny Leone, who made her debut in Bollywood with Jism 2, did not quite make an impact with her acting skills.
The actress is however back and this time with a sizzling item song in Shootout At Wadala. The song titled Laila Teri Le Legi has already got over 8 lakh hits within five days of its upload. The song's views have increased more than that of Babli Badmaash, from the same film, featuring Priyanka Chopra.
She will soon be seen playing the lead in Ekta Kapoor's Ragini MMS2.

Salman Khan has lived in a one bedroom flat in his Galaxy Apartments since forever and was looking out for a new home.
And to everyone's surprise, the actor has reportedly booked his new residency close to that of Shah Rukh Khan's Bandra Bandstand home, Mannat. A source confirmed, "For over two decades, Salman bhai has lived in a one-bedroom flat in Galaxy Apartments. But now with his many dogs and other things, the space appears to be too small for him. He is most likely to move into Sagar Resham, which is just two buildings away from Mannat."

"Seeta Aur Geeta" is one of the favorite films of Katrina Kaif from 70s. Katrina has been walking about the remake of the film since a long time from now. There is some light of hope for Kat as producer Sippy has announced he is interested in making remake of "Seeta Aur Geeta" and Katrina will possibly be seen in lead role (one of twin sisters separated at birth)
So far, there is a dispute in Sippy's family because Father sippy "Ramesh Sippy" owns the right of original "Seeta Aur Geeta" and Son sippy "Rohan Sippy" might not get permission to make a remake of this.
On the other hand, both the Sippys are happy to have Katrina Kaif in the list and have allowed the actress to choose a team she wants to work with. Lets see if Katrina forms team with Ranbir Kapoor or not but currently she is busy in meetings with producers to finalize details.

Apparently, Fardeen Khan has decided to finally call it quits in Bollywood and move on. His career was anyway going nowhere and it seemed he had lost interest in pursuing it. He had disappeared from the limelight after the demise of his father, Feroz Khan and since then there has hardly been any buzz about him.
Earlier, Fardeen seemed quite keen on carrying forward his family business and reviving the FK banner. He even renovated the family building as a part-work outfit but things did not materialise. Now we hear that Fardeen isn't spending much time in India and is trying wrap up the business altogether. Apparently, he has leased out his office to director Rohit Shetty. So it seems like the actor has truly made up his mind to wind things up and shift out of the country!
A friend informs us, "Fardeen doesn't have any plans of returning permanently to India any time soon. He spends most of his time in London or Dubai where his parents-in-law (Mumtaz and Mayur Madhwani) live. His wife Natasha also spends most of her time in Dubai."
Though Fardeen may have said goodbye to Bollywood, the actor is still pretty much in touch with his cousins in Mumbai and his friends in the industry. Whenever he's here he makes sure to spend some time with them.
