"It's the Magic Of Mumbai": Kiran Rao

Kiran Rao, director of 'Dhobi Ghat' sent us this post card today where she wrote about her impressions on Mumbai:

I came to Mumbai 12 years ago, moved house 7 times, worked on 8 films, found love, and am seeing my dreams come true. I guess it’s the magic of Mumbai – my muse, my home, and the reason I made this film called “Dhobi Ghat”… (contd)

It’s a film about four people and the city of Mumbai – four ordinary yet special people, whose lives intersect and become forever altered as they journey through longing, Loneliness, loss and love… And in many ways its as much a film about me, the people I’ve met, and the life I’ve lived in this crazy city!

To Mumbai!

"All good, its always good": Hrithik Roshan

When we did the interview with Hrithik Roshan he had been coughing and informed us that he wasn't well. People close to him informed that he hasn't slept properly for more than a week. I never thought that he could be in a hospital within 24 hrs of this interview. Here's the official statement from Hrithik's team and also a quote given by Hrithik to quell any rumours.

As an official spokesperson for Hrithik Roshan, I confirm the news that...Hrithik was hospitalised today late afternoon for an allergic reaction to an antibiotic that he had. He was taken to Kokilaben Hospital on time and given the right treatment. He is under observation and will be discharged tonight.He is much better now and recuperating.

Following is Hrithik Roshan's quote:

"Ok doctors just confirmed. I experienced an ALLERGIC reaction to an antibiotic. My lungs just closed, throat went into spasm, couldn't breathe. Lips became 10 times their size. I was rushed to the hospital in time. Am under observation and will be discharged late night. But all good, its always good. Was celebrating Guzaarish at home, now celebrating frm here. No difference :-)"

Treasure Of Sorrow

I wrote this poem in 2006. Hope you all like it.

There’s nothing a man can do
If the will isn’t willing enough
To let go the treasure of sorrow

There’s nothing left to do
If the hopelessness of purpose
Gnaws at the clueless tomorrow

A smile is your best friend
When there’s nothing left
Except golden time to borrow

Pastel Life

This poem was written by me in 2006. Saw it today and thought of sharing with you guys. Hope you like it.

There's something about life
Addictive and contagious

Future draped in pastel
Couragiously saunters
Through the
Matrix of thoughts
Inviting and igniting

There's something about life
Mischievous and tolerant

I smirked at the
Trouble fugitive
Preferring to stay away
From the dungeons of despair
Lighting a torch of smiles
Across thousands of miles

There's something about life
Affectionate and understanding

With a little help
From known strangers
One gets by
And feign happiness
When none exists
For gloominess sucks
And is seldom social

There's something about life
With many faces to see through it all...

"My dream (to meet SRK) came true so why not yours"

"If it's your dream to meet SHAH RUKH KHAN, just believe in it," says 20 year old Athar Sedki, a Shahrukh Khan fan from Belgium who recently met SRK while he was shooting for Farhan Akhtar's 'Don 2' in Berlin. And that too on Khan's birthday. "We love him as an actor, but also as a father, husband and person, he's an example," Athar adds. I've known Athar through twitter @atharluvsrk for quite some time. In fact she's very regular in tweeting to me and her innocent vivaciousness is infectious and very charming. In the first of a kind attempt I decided to interview Athar about the experience of meeting her idol. I believe we can do this more often with other fans as well. Hope you enjoy this post.

How did you decide to travel from Belgium to Berlin? What is your city's name? How did you travel? How many hours did it take?

A: Well, I decided to travel with my friend Ellie, by Bus. i live in Brussel, and it take 10 hours!

How did your parents react to it?

My mother was happy for me to know that i'll go there only to see Shah Rukh and others Bollywood Stars, She always tells me that i'm a real Shah Rukh Fan :)

I believe your birthday is near SRK's as well...what is your birth date? and how old are you?

My birthday is on 24th October , i'm 20.

4) Since when have you been Shahrukh's fan?

Since i was about 9-10 years, he gave me desire to become an actress, in your wonderful country!

I believe SRK had once replied to you on twitter. How was that experience?

First, i didn't believe it when i saw that he wrote my name and replied, then i cried ha ha .that's so wonderful of him to take his precious time for us.

How much time did you have to wait before you finally met SRK in Berlin?

I waited (with Ellie) 6 days to meet him, so i met him the day of his birthday .

How did you approach the organisers to allow you to meet SRK?

Was (like others fans) at the sets of Don 2, and Shah Rukh came to see us !

What kind of problems did you face while waiting for SRK?
Waited a lot in the cold and it's not very easy to talk to him with the security.

How do you define the moment when you met and saw SRK in flesh and blood the first time around?

Just PERFECT !! Cried, laughed, he's so cute in real more than on tv, pics etc...

What were the first words you said to SRK? What were the first words spoken by SRK to you?

I said to him oh my god! Hello! he said Thank you with a smile

Who had you gone with to meet SRK?

Ellie , she's a big fan of him and i met a super fan there from Austria , her name is Marie-Stella.

How much time did you spend with SRK?

Few minutes, because lots of fans were there.

What all did you speak about during your meeting with SRK?

Was very nervous so couldn't talk a lot, but we took pictures, he signed on my Shah RUkh Khan's BOok, and we sang with Ellie happy birthday to him.

What is the best thing that you noticed about SRK during your meeting?

I noticed that he was very patient, kind , polite.

Did you get autograph? How many pics did you click with him? Which pic is your favourite?

Yes got Autographe, took 2 pics with him, and took lots of pics of him alone ! my favourite is of course me with him.

How did you feel when you were about to leave after having met SRK?

I said no it didn't happend, and i felt very weird and a bit sad ! but HAPPY!!!

How was the night before meeting SRK and how was the night after meeting SRK?

Before the meeting was very excited and nervous, and after couldn't sleep well, i wanted to meet him again and again.

What was the reaction of your friends and family when you told them that you have met SRK?

I posted the pics on twitter and facebook, and nobody believed that i met him LOL, everyone told me FINALLY after years you saw him in real.my mum is the first person who was happy for me, wince i was very young that i talk about ShAH RUKH KHAN, so now she understand, she tells me , i hope one day you'll become an actress like , he is !

Was meeting SRK the best experience of your life?

YEs !! and also the best experience ever ! don't know how will thank him, but hope that he'll read my tweet on twitter !

Any other information that you'd like to share about your meeting with SRK?

I just want to tell to all Shah RUkh fan , if it's your dream to meet SHAH RUKH KHAN, just believe in it. My dream came true so why not yours? :)

Is there anything that you wanted to tell SRK but couldn't?

Yes i wanted to tell him that he has lots of Belgian fans, and we love him as an actor, but also as a father, husband and person, he's an exemple ! couldn't was very nervous and crying.

45th Birthday Wishes For Shahrukh Khan

For the last two years, this time of the day on November 2nd the entire media was parked inside mannat with a huge crowd gathered outside. Shahrukh graciously waved to them, answered all the queries of media, he cut all the cakes and ensured everyone had a good time. This year he is away and courtesy Twitter, his entire fan base from across the world is participating in celebrating his 45th Birthday to the hilt.

I have interviewed Shahrukh Khan thrice. He is a committed listener. Gives long detailed answers to each question and makes sure one gets a proper byte. Though personally I am not happy with either of the three interviews (maybe OSO one was wholesome to some extent). I would love to chat with him about his parents as thats an area that fills me with a lot of curiosity. Losing one's parents at a young age and overpowering all odds must have been quite a ride. This aspect of SRK hasn't been probed in detail even in the books written on him (closest comes Anupama Chopra's book on him). Maybe I shall get the coveted time with him soon.

I had asked you guys to send your wishes on Shahrukh's birthday. Your favourite films, scenes of SRK's movies. Which actress makes the best pair with him? For me Chak De India is SRK at his best. Do you think he should be doing more films with directors like Shimit Amin? What do you think of SRK as an actor and as a person? The response has been overwhelming. I haven't been able to include all of your tweets but I have tried to balance it as much as possible. Many of you have sent lovely cards and videos. have included their links. Hope you enjoy reading this looooooong blog post. And yes Happy Birthday Shahrukh Khan. You are truly one of a kind. God Bless!

He is one of the nicest celebs that I have met personally. He treats everyone with respect and love. You wouldn't know if he's in a bad mood because he doesn't let it affect that few moments you have with him. That says a lot! :)

@Faridoon_S Best pairing with SRK is Juhi, Madhuri, Kajol only look good with SRK. He and Kareena look so cute in Asoka and that is why I can't wait to see them together in Ra.One. I would love to see him and Manisha Koirala in another full on film. Not to forget him and Preity, Rani. All the films him and Ash did together, they look very nice together. Well anyone looks good with SRK so moving on:))

I love like all SRK films. He is just too perfect at everything he does.

some amazing scenes

Swades http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITBc-mu-pz4
Even though Mohan has good drinking water he still bought that water from the kid. So heartfelt. What a performance and what a man ShahRukh is.

My Name Is Khan. I love the whole film but a very nice scene is where he went to the place wanting to pay 500 dollars to meet the president and the African American lady told him that the event is only for Christian. Then he told her to keep the money for all the children that is not Christian. "Honey, feed Africa"

Great SRK films like K3G, Mohabbatein, Veer Zaara, Chak De India, KANK, DDLJ, Asoka, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Don, Paheli, Chaahat, Dil Se, Pardes, KKHH..all of them.

the !st Ever Movie I watsh to the king was "Karan Arjun" this film have raised a tremendous amount of emotions I have had do not go beyond seven years old .. & I loved him since that Perhaps the reason 4 my love to Shahrukh that I Grow up watching his Movie my Father & My Mom a Huge Fan to Shahrukh ji .. & watch All his Movie , without exception, to this day

So it was natural for me to fall in love with all the work of this legeant " King Khan " & he Desarve this nikname

I can not choose one a favorite movie of his films, because that will be injustice of what remains

but I can name some of his work "#DDLJ , #KKHH , #K3G , #KHNH, #MNIK , #MHN
, #DTPH , #RNBDJ , #CDI , OSO" more &more;the bist dialoge


“Babuji ne kaha gaon chhodh do, sub ne kaha paro ko chhodh do, paro ne kaha sharab chhodh do…aaj tum keh rehe ho yeh haweli chhodh do…eik din ayega jab woh kahega duniya hi chhodh do… ”

“Kaun Kambakht Bardasht karne ke liye peeta hai… main to isi liye peeta hoon ke hosh main na reh saku…”

“Kitney aasani se ginwa diya ki tumhe har pal meri yaad aati thi, magar yeh kabhi nahi socha ki un palo mein beeta toh main hi tha… diya tum jalati thi lekin us mein jalta toh mein hi tha…”

Om Shanti Om

“Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost”

“Itni shiddat se maine tumhe paane ki koshish ki hai
ki har zarre ne mujhe tumse milane ki koshish ki hai….
kehte hai agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho
toh poori kaynath tumhein usse milane ki koshish mein
lag jaati hai…aap sabne mujhe meri chahat se mila diya…

“Agar kisi cheez ko puri shiddat se chaho,,,toh puri kayanaat usse aapse milvane par majboor ho jaati hai”

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge:

“Koi baat nahi Senoreeta… bade bade deshon mein… aisi choti choti batein… hoti rehti hai”

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai:

“Hum ek baar jite hain, ek baar marte hain, shaadi bhi ek baar hoti hai, aur pyar….ek hi baar hota hai”


“Pyaar zindagi ki tarah hota hai, Jiska her morr aasan nahi hota, Her raste per khushi nahi milti, Per jab hum zindagi ka saath nahin chhodte, To hum pyaar karna kyon chhodein…”

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham:

“Zindagi mein kuch banna ho, Kuch hasil karna ho, Kuch jeetna ho, To hamesha apne dil ki suno, Aur agar dil se bhi koi jawaab na aaye … To apni aankhein band karke apni Maa aur Baba ka naam lo … Phir dekhna tum her manzil paa sakoge, Her mushkil aasan ho jayegi, Jeet tumhari hogi ….. Sirf tumhari…”

Dil To Pagal Hai:

“Rahul, naam to suna hoga”


“Don ke dushman ki sabse badi galti hai…. ki woh don ka dushman hai”

Whatever the role played by Shah Rukh "Romnci, dramatic, aggressive, evil, or anything else is always the best

And always has the talent to convince those around him & his Fan that this is his character

If Shahrukh "Man, actor, father, husband, boss, or a famous person," Always keep love and humility is the key feature of his personality in dealing with his fan always

we love him & we will Still love him Coz Shahrukh is the Person Planted in our hearts love We learned how to love .. So we owe him our Soul's and our lives

No Standoff Between Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra

Official Press Release From YRF


A trade publication, Box Office India, in its current issue has chosen to put out a completely fabricated story regarding a rumoured standoff between Mr. Yash Chopra and Mr. Aditya Chopra and a possible separation between the two because of this.

This is utter nonsense and unfortunate that anybody should have reported this without any basis or verification and would need to stoop to this for unknown gains.

It is really sad that we even have to comment on an article of this nature but do so only to request all responsible media friends to refrain from giving any credence to this and not report this in the interest of legitimate and dignified journalism and to avoid such conjecture going forward.
Julia Roberts has called her "the most beautiful woman in the world". And she is one of the most recognised Indian faces across the world. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan celebrates her birthday today in an year which is turning out to be one of the most productive and notable years professionally. Her work was appreciated in 'Raavan' and 'Enthiran' turned out to be one of the biggest money spinners in Indian history. Paired with Rajnikanth, Aishwarya had some of the smoothest dance steps. With 'Action Replayy' and 'Guzaarish' up for release, Aishwarya is at the top of her game.

I've interviewed Aishwarya twice. She is as bewitchingly beautiful in reality as she looks on screen. But the best part is that she makes you feel at ease instantly, is very respectful, courteous and well mannered. In an industry where upstart actresses develop airs post average hits, Aishwarya in spite of her magnificent body of work, appeals the most for her innate simplicity and genuineness.

I had asked you guys as to what are your wishes for Aishwarya on her 37th birthday, what is your favourite Aishwarya Rai movie, youtube links of your favourite scenes, what you think of her as a person and as an actress. Got an overwhelming response from you guys. I have tried to pick the best responses in this blog post. Hope you like it. And yes, heartiest birthday greetings to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. May she scale many more heights of personal and professional success.

13) nazirmo

@Faridoon_S- I truly feel that if you see Aishwarya in Robot and many other movies she is truly the most beautiful Indian actress- not sexy

14) nazirji nazirmo

@Faridoon_S - if I could give an award for best dressed celebrity in the world it would go to Aishwarya Rai who wears the best gowns etc

15) nazirji nazirmo

@Faridoon_S - Aish is very beautiful but not world's most beautiful-one may find Lata to be the best singer while another Asha but both good

Aishwarya's heart is pure gold bcause always speaks her mind & always trying 2 make her lovers proud that is her well-wishers...she respects the media even though she is not respected back from sum media & Ash has all the great qualities a girl shld have..Aishwarya happens 2 B a fantastic dancr b/c she not only learn the steps but she also feels the rhythm sunning thru her vain's..my fave ash film is Devdas not only b/c of the lines but b/c of D way she carries herself in D SCENE http://youtu.be/pEwlDBzLiUE

39) landofom

@Faridoon_S SJB said Ash mind is more beautiful! Combination with Beauty & Mind= Legend! As #Indians we need start praising our own people!

40) PLLGleefan

@Faridoon_S we can't say Aish is the most beautiful woman in the world because we haven't seen every women in the world! Aish is a good actress in films like Devdas and serious films! But in glam roles and comedy films she can't do it!

40) kunals007

@Faridoon_S Fav film of Aishwarya is hard to pick - Guru/Hum Dil De Chucke Sanam/Devdas/Raavan, Robot, Kuch Naa Kaho, Jodhaa Akbar many more
