Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says as compared to earlier times, the vanity vans have changed and those belonging to superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have most tastefully done up interiors. “I have seen and been invited to a few. Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, John Abraham, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone — they all have most tastefully done up their interiors and equipped the interiors with almost all home facilities,” Amitabh wrote on his blog on Friday.

The cine-icon said that SRK’s vanity van consists of a drawing room fitted with a large TV console and added that he has been invited on occasion to watch football. Amitabh said that the concept of individual make-up rooms of earlier times has almost disappeared as personal vanity vans have taken over. He also remembered that the first vanity van that came to the industry was that of filmmaker Manmohan Desai.

“He had two made. One for himself and one for me. It was a gift, but one that I cherish till date. A bed, toilet, chairs, drawing room … like to relax on and music and TV systems in place, but difficult to operate,” he wrote. “I do not have that vanity now.” Amitabh, 75, has a “simple rented” vanity van now. “I am happy with its presence. Nothing elaborate, just enough needed for a shooting day,” he said.

“It was suggested that I cast Salman and Madhuri [Dixit Nene] alongside Shah Rukh, as it would have given a boost to the film. But I refused, because they would not have done justice to the parts.

The character Rajiv was an NRI. So it had to be played by someone unknown. Hence, I decided to cast Apurva Agnihotri, a newcomer,” says Ghai.

SRKActress Kalki Koechlin says she wishes to work on screen with all the Khans of Bollywood, but she has a softer corner for Shah Rukh Khan.

Asked if she wants to work with any of the top Khans of the industry, Kalki told IANS: “I want to work with all three Khans, but if you ask me my favourite, it has to be Shah Rukh.

“Shah Rukh is my childhood crush. I met him few times in real life as well and he is very charming.”

When it comes to a new bunch of actors, she thinks she “will look nice” with Ranbir Kapoor.

“We worked in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and I really liked him as co-star. He is a natural actor and spontaneous. It would be interesting to work with him,” she added.

The actress is trying to balance her career between mainstream and indie films by working with directors like Zoya Akhtar and Ayan Mukerji in films like “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” and “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, along with movies like “Margarita, With a Straw” and “A Death in the Gunj” which were popular in festival circuits.

Sharing her wish-list of directors, Kalki said: “I would like to work with an artist like Vishal Bhardwaj. His cinema is a piece of art, he writes the story, he makes the music of the film and it’s amazing. I think it would be interesting to work with Vikramaditya Motwane as well.”

Currently, Kalki is looking forward to her upcoming film “Ribbon”, also featuring Sumeet Vyas. It is releasing on November 3.

From being a speaker, to actually hosting the show, Shah Rukh Khan has said that TED Talks is one of the biggest achievements of his life. SRK gave his first TED Talk earlier this year in Vancouver, and has always stated how big of a fan he is of the show.

And, now he is all set to host the Indian version of the show called ‘TED Talks : Nayi Soch’. So, basically TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”.

Since the Indian version of the show – Nayi Soch – is just about to launch, here are some of the reasons why no one should miss this promising show at all.

1. Shah Rukh Khan

Obviously, the first and foremost reason has to be the King Khan himself. ‘Nayi Soch’ is all set to bring back SRK to the small screen. It has been quite some time since he hosted ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?’ and had a brief stint of hosting ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, and you have to admit, SRK’s involvement in TED Talks is one of the most talked about things regarding the show.

2. The History of TED Talks

With early emphasis on technology and design, the focus of the show has been broadened to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics. With so many different topics being covered, the amount of knowledge being offered though these talks is honestly unparalleled. With the new Indian version, we can look forward to various perspectives of people from different walks of life.

3. Oprah Winfrey

Well, there are rumours going around that International celebrity TV host, Oprah Winfrey, has been approached to make an appearance on the show. A source said, “Shah Rukh met Oprah when she attended Parmeshwar Godrej’s party in India 5 years ago. He connected with her so well that he decided to call her back to India, and this time on a show that would be honoured to have such an influential person talk to the Indian audiences.”

4. SRK’s engaging approach

As mentioned above, SRK delivered an inspiring 18-minute talk on TED2017’s theme – The Future You, earlier this year. The host, Chris Anderson, even called SRK a “renaissance man”, and that has set the tone for what we have in store for us. Moreover, SRK’s famous wit knows no bounds and he has proved what an incredible host he is with his previous stints, and this time won’t be any different.

5. All the Celebrities that are set to appear

Reportedly, seven episodes have already been shot, and the show boasts of an interesting lineup of celebrities from Bollywood and the sports industry. To name a few, Javed Akhtar, Mithali Raj, and Karan Johar, have already shot for the show.

shah-rukh-khan-suhana-abram-aryanFor a superstar with immense popularity and fame comes very little room for privacy. When we talk about a renowned actor like Shah Rukh Khan, his every move is caught by the paparazzi. Though the actor has always been willing to pose for the shutterbugs, he is certainly unhappy the way how media is capturing AbRam Khan outside his school.

Not only SRK but his youngest son, AbRam too is an internet darling and of course a media favourite. SRK has no issues regarding the media following his son but apparently his concerned about AbRam being clicked at his school.

A source revealed to a daily, “Shahrukh does not want any pictures of AbRam in school or of Aryan. He is very particular about it. But a couple of people are stationed outside. It is rare to get a picture of AbRam”.

Previously too SRK has requested the photographers to not click pictures of AbRam entering or exiting school. However, despite his plea, the photographers are often found stationed outside the school premises to click candid of the little one.

We feel that Shah Rukh Khan is just being a doting father and ensuring that his son enjoys his schooling like a regular kid. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments below.
