King Khan aka Shah Rukh Khan is never off the headlines. However, apart from his much-awaited film ‘Zero’, what has kept him the limelight is his legal matter on one of his properties. As per reports, the difficulties for him prevail as the Income Tax Department continues to probe into his Alibaug property matter.

Reportedly, the ‘Raees’ actor can’t take a sigh of relief till December 2018 from the Income Tax department which is currently investigating the case.

The ‘Zero’ actor has been accused of buying the Alibaug property under the false pretense of using it for agricultural purposes and has instead built a farmhouse on the land. Reportedly, the land is owned in the name of Deja vu Farms Pvt Ltd., which was acquired under Section 63 of the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act, 1948 (which stipulates that only a farmer can buy agricultural land).

Apparently, as per reports it has been utilized for the luxurious purpose. Therefore, the property dispute has reached a point of hearing to New Delhi.

If reports are to be believed, then Shah Rukh Khan has been roped in to star in the Hindi remake of R Madhavan’s ‘Vikram Vedha’. However, it’s not easy to woo over the Badshah of Bollywood. Reports suggest that SRK had put forward two conditions for him to accept the project. Condition one is that R Madhavan will play his role even in the remake and that he reprises the part of Vijay Sethupathi; the other one is that Neeraj Pandey will not only produce but also direct the film.

The original director duo, Pushkar and Gayatri were supposedly retained for the remake too. However, with SRK’s conditions, the scenario might change. Let’s wait and watch.

This photo shared by Preity Zinta on her Instagram account will surely take you back to the 1990s. The snapshot of Preity Zinta with Shah Rukh Khan is from the iconic film Dil Se. For the uninitiated, Dil Se was the first time that Shah Rukh and Preity were paired up and it was touted as Preity’s biggest Bollywood debut.

This is what Preity Zinta wrote, “Look what I found ? #dilse bus mein #throwback #firstfilm #memories #delhi (sic).”

Shah Rukh Khan and Preity have remained good friends since that film and have appeared together several super-hit films such as Veer Zara, Kal Ho Na Ho, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna among others.

Earlier, in one of the post, Preity also revealed that if there is one person that can make him cry is Shah Rukh. “The only actor who can make me cry at the drop of a hat in an emotion scene is @iamsrk omg! I have cried in so many scenes with him (sic),” wrote the 43-year-old actress.

After tying the knot with Gene Goodenough, she hasn’t been seen on the big screen. However, vacationing in California and Indian Premier League (IPL) has kept the dimpled-beauty occupied.

As a unique promotional activity for Rani Mukerji’s upcoming film, the actress asked a few prominent personalities, Shah Rukh Khan – being one of them about their life’s biggest hiccup

Shah Rukh Khan reveals the biggest hiccup in his life.

Shah Rukh Khan is a living legend today. The outsider, the path-breaker, the icon – Hindi cinema hasn’t seen a Badshah rule with such unparalleled love and success. Yet, early on in his life, Shah Rukh faced the biggest hiccup one could face – the sudden loss of his parents. The makers of Rani Mukerji’s Hichki are promoting the film uniquely by asking prominent personalities to share their untold weaknesses and how they eventually converted them into massive strengths. SRK reveals that harnessing the pain and grief of his loss into his passion for acting has been his way of overcoming this massive Hichki of his life. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Shah Rukh Khan reveals, “My greatest Hichki moment is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father passed away and 24 when my mother passed away. We were not financially well off, and I was studying for my Masters degree then. It was very sad for us. The empty house without my parents used to come to bite us (my sister and me). The loneliness, pain, and sadness of the loss of both my parents, could have been overwhelming enough to take over my life wholly. I decided to overcome thisHichkimoment by letting acting fill up my entire life.”

He adds, “I never quite let go of the pain, but I also used it to make me completely focus on my profession. People close to me will tell you that acting is my vent, my window of manifesting these overwhelming emotions. I always say this that one morning, when I wake up, I will realise that I have spent all these emotions and now have nothing more to give (as an actor). Otherwise, death is a hiccup from which there is no coming back. I realised that and therefore, overcame it by giving my work, my all. God might bring a hiccup to you in this life but he will also give you multiple ways to deal with it in this lifetime. I could find my family (the love and sense of belonging) amongst my friends and colleagues in the film industry again.”

Sridevi's final journey

A tall, open truck, fully decorated with white flowers — her favourite colour — carried her body which was first draped in the national tricolour and then loaded in a glass casket, as cries of ‘Sridevi Amar Rahe’ rent the air among her fans.

Inside the truck was Sridevi lying serene with full make-up, a large south Indian style vermillion and wearing a ceremonial gold and maroon coloured Kanjeevaram sari. A heavy, large necklace adorned her since she died a ‘suhaagan’ (still married), giving the appearance of a resplendent ‘devi’ (Goddess) in deep slumber.

Her grieving family members including husband Boney Kapoor, her step-son Arjun Kapoor and brothers-in-law Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor were among those who travelled in the truck with the body.

The truck slowly negotiated the approximately six km passing through some of the poshest areas of Andheri and Vile Parle suburbs, with a massive portrait of Sridevi visible from a distance.

Several lakhs of people including students, office-goers and others accompanied or waited on both side of the roads, looked on from buildings and bungalow terraces. Many climbed on signals and lamp posts for a last glimpse of their beloved heroine.

In terms of sheer numbers, Sridevi’s funeral is estimated to have attracted the highest number of mourners, ranking on par with the previous biggest funeral processions of the legendary singer Mohammed Rafi (July 1980: around a million mourners), and India’s first superstar Rajesh Khanna (July 2012: a little less than a million mourners).

The other big funerals of non-political personalities in Mumbai included those of Raj Kapoor (June 1988) and Vinod Khanna (April 2017).

Earlier, on Wednesday morning, her mortal remains arrived at Celebration Sports Club in Lokhandwala, where her industry peers and admirers paid their last respects to the iconic actor. Mumbai Police also paid their respects to the veteran. The Police band in full dress uniform had arrived at the club before the actor’s final journey. Sridevi’s mortal remains were placed at Celebration Sports Club from 9.30 am and 12.30 pm for members of the public who gathered to pay homage before the funeral, which will be held at Vile Parle Seva Samaj Crematorium & Hindu Cemetery.

Legendary actress Sridevi’s mortal remains reached Pawan Hans Crematorium, Vile Parle around 3:30 pm. Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Rampal, Randhir Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Farhan Akhtar, Prasoon Joshi have reached the Crematorium centre to pay their respects. The crowd gathered outside the venue to catch the last glimpse of the actress is creating a huge chaos.

Thousands of people including celebrities and Bollywood personalities mourned for the actress on Wednesday. Since dawn, hundreds of teary-eyed fans and admirers, some carrying flowers, had started queueing up outside the club for a final ‘darshan’ of their idol. After the flower-bedecked body of Sridevi was brought to the club premises, a steady stream of celebrities started alighting from their vehicles and were whisked inside to pay their last respects. Rekha, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Kajol and other celebs arrived at the venue to bid farewell to Sridevi.

Most mourners embraced and sought to console the bereaved family members, quickly moving in from the main entrance and exiting fleetingly from the other side, as fans tried to catch a glimpse. Sridevi’s body was flown to Mumbai from Dubai where she passed away around 11 pm on February 24, and from the airport was taken to the Kapoor residence in Green Acres at the posh Lokhandwala Complex.

The Green Acres complex has cancelled Holi celebrations as a mark of respect for their departed resident. Despite the late hour, several hundreds of fans kept vigil outside the residence when a motorcade including an ambulance reached there. There was chaos outside her residence, as a large number of fans jostled for a glimpse of their favourite actor.
