His speeches, his movies, his tweets, everything about him, is an inspiration to millions who believe in him. Recently he tweeted a personal thought about life in general and his fans decided to draw a wonderful perception around it.

How can one not just feel love & beauty & be grateful for a life that became a part of yours in some small way by making it prettier….isn’t it just easier to feel love & give towards that life, even in death…the comfort of appreciation and gratitude.

— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) February 28, 2018

His fans are now urging him to quit smoking, because they want him to live a longer and healthier life.

Amitabh Bachchan was dethroned by Shah Rukh Khan on Twitter by becoming the most followed Indian actor on the platform.

Though the number of followers of SRK remained the same (32,941,262), Big B lost a chunk of his followers, bringing him second on the list with 32,902,902 followers. Sharing a photo from the 1991 film, Hum, the angry young man tweeted in jest, “TWITTER?? you reduced my number of followers?? HAHAHAHA!! that’s a joke.. time to get off from you.. thank you for the ride.. there are many ‘other’ fish in the sea — and a lot more exciting (sic).”

Shah Rukh Khan, like last year, has topped Twitter’s most talked about celebrity list. Among the ladies, Deepika Padukone has topped the list, replacing last year’s winner Priyanka Chopra

Varun Dhawan had a great 2017, with both his releases, ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and Judwaa 2, ruling the box office. While the actor has been collecting gongs at award galas, he has also been honoured on social media. According to Twitter India’s annual ranking list, the ‘Badlapur’ actor is the favourite Gen Next star for the second time in a row.

The elated actor says, “It feels great that people are talking good things about me. Twitter is a fun place if you don’t take it seriously, and I kept that in mind. I was myself on the platform. Thanks to my activities on Twitter, people could relate to me. I am always open to constructive criticism and don’t give a damn about those who spread negativity.

I even got an e-challan from the Mumbai police [for posting a picture on social media of a selfie with a fan mid-traffic]. We launched the songs and special sneak peeks of ‘Judwaa 2’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ for my fans on Twitter, and I’m thankful that the films had a massive reach on social media.”

Shah Rukh Khan, like last year, has topped Twitter’s most talked about celebrity list. He is followed by Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. Among the ladies, Deepika Padukone has topped the list, replacing last year’s winner Priyanka Chopra. The Piku actor is followed by Anushka Sharma, Chopra and Alia Bhatt. Sharma, who tied the knot with cricketer Virat Kolhi earlier this month, announced her marriage on Twitter. Her post has been lauded as the Golden Tweet Of The Year, as it got the maximum number of retweets.

Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you. This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans & well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey.

Are you alien to Bollywood and the humungous list of movies it has in its bag? Are you someone who has barely watched a handful of Hindi movies? Well, even if you have ticked the above boxes, there are certain names you will remember no matter what and Karan Johar is one such name. 

From making a cameo appearance in ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ to becoming one of the most sought after and successful directors in Bollywood, Karan Johar or as some call him KJo, has come a long way.

Even if you don’t remember most of his films, there is no way on earth that people will forget his directorial debut film! It was a movie which gave us a character no one else can ever dare to recreate – the one and only diva ‘Poo’. Yes, we are talking about ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum’ that completed 16 years today. Do you feel old already? We surely do. 

#I6yearsofK3G….a film that is exceptionally close to my heart….have the most beautiful memories…thank you @SrBachchan @iamsrk @iHrithik @kajol #jayaaunty #kareena #rani for making my experience so special….

A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 13, 2017 at 10:50am PST

Even today, the wave of ‘K3G’ rules our minds, thanks to the ensemble cast, brilliant acting and of course an over-the-board script that struck the right chord with the audience.

And now that very movie has completed 16 years and its proud director KJo shared an amazing series of pictures that took us right down memory lane. He posted pictures from behind the scenes and brought back all those amazing memories attached with the film.  

#16yearsofK3G……the age of innocence

Who do you think did it better? Karan Johar or Kareena Kapoor?

Me overacting trying to teach KAREENA what to do!!! 😂#16yearsofk3g

We can already imagine Karan Johar saying (in Poo’s style) “You’re so P.H.A.T…Pretty Hot And Tempting”. 

It seems I was obsessed with Poo!!!! #16yearsofk3g

A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 13, 2017 at 9:54pm PST

And we found another reason to go and watch ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum’ again.

While we were swimming in the pool of nostalgia, it was Kajol who stole the limelight with her hilarious reply. After Karan posted the picture, Kajol was quick to recollect that it was the same shot that was taken when she broke her finger and was on painkillers.

As we were containing our excitement after reading their replies, Farah Khan too jumped into the banter and started a separate hilarious discussion altogether.

From Amitabh Bachchan playing a typical patriarch, Shah Rukh Khan playing his obedient son who falls in love with a free-spirited Kajol and leaves the house when Amitabh disapproves of her, to Laddoo’s insane body transformation and the self-obsessed Poo; every character made the movie a memorable affair for all Bollywood fans. But if at all there was a K3G sequel to be made, we would want a movie solely focusing on Poo’s life.

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.

Subhash Ghai, the director of Shah Rukh Khan and Mahima Chaudhry-starrer Pardes (1997), says that the distributors wanted him to cast Salman Khan in the film.

“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.

With Shah Rukh Khan tied up with the shoot of Aanand L Rai’s film, word is his TV show, TED Talks India: Nayi Soch, has been postponed indefinitely. It was slated to roll post Diwali, but looks like it won’t happen anytime soon, not even in early 2018. King Khan shot for the show for a few days in August.
