This weekend has been about grandeur in cinema and phenomenal tailers to blockbuster films. Shah Rukh Khan released the trailer of his most-awaited film, Zero.

After wowing the audience as Bauua Singh, Bollywood’s Khiladi, Akshay Kumar just dropped the trailer of the highly anticipated film, 2.0 along with megastar Rajinikanth. Amidst fanfare and cheers, Akki landed in Chennai for the trailer release. The trailer is what you expected but probably and a bigger and better scale.

While it’s always a delight to see Rajinikanth in his phenomenal, iconic form, it’s Khiladi Kumar’s never seen before avatar that has blown our minds. Whether it’s his expressions or his deadly gaze, Akki as the antagonist will send shivers down your spine. As the antagonist, Akki addresses a pressing problem with today’s generation, the dependency of mobile phones.

 

Moreover, it’s been a while since the audience has seen the superstar in a negative role. After essaying the role of the quintessential baddie in Ajnabee, Akki has returned to play the villain after 16 years. Speaking to MensXP, the Housefull actor revealed, “It’s great to be a part of this kind of a film.

It’s been long since I have done a negative role. I played a negative role long back, in a film called Ajnabee. And that’s why I did it. I choose a role very fast. I just listen to it. I don’t have ten people of my company. I just look at it, feel good…good feeling comes, and I choose it. That’s it.”

 

Top 5 negative Roles Of Shah Rukh Khan That Made Him Bad Boy Of Bollywood

The ultimate Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan is turning 52 on November 2 i.e tomorrow. On this special occasion of his life, the Baadshah of Bollywood will be celebrating his birthday with his family and friends.

Especially whenever SRK lives in Mumbai on his birthday, he never misses any single chance to take a selfie with his million dollar fans, who have always been gathering outside of his dream house Mannat.

But do you know, SRK is himself an inspiration for many people? Yes, after debuting into Bollywood as a lover in Deewana (1992), the actor has done many beautiful romantic films. However, during the initial days of his career, King of Romance wanted to do negative roles in his career.

It was a big risk for his career, but if you don’t take risk, then you can’t taste success. This is what makes SRK so special. His negative portrayals itself given many chances to his fans to love him from the bottom of their heart.

Baazigar:

After making debut in 1992, Shah Rukh Khan took a big risk within a year of his debut by doing negative role in Abbas Mustan’s thriller Baazigar (1993). His portrayal of Ajay Sharma, who is keen to take a revenge from a person who has destroyed his family had appealed to the audiences. People still can’t forget that scene when SRK throws Shilpa Shetty from the terrace. Notably, the film also witnessed the first time pairing of still iconic and most loved heroine of SRK, Kajol. Especially, his negative portrayal in Baazigar was so impressing that made him the first time winner of Filmfare Best Actor Award.

 

Darr:

In 1993, SRK again made his negative impact with Yash Chopra’s romantic thriller Darr. SRK as Rahul is still giving nightmares to many girls. After all, his style of saying, I Love You K.K.K… Kiran! is still fresh in today’s young generations. Despite having Sunny Deol and Juhi Chawla in the lead roles, SRK stole all the limelight and become the star.

Anjaam

In 1994, Shah Rukh had become even more brutal and annoying when he played a role of stalker cum obsessed lover in Anjaam, who can do anything to capture his lady love which was played by Madhuri Dixit. Well, his characterisation was so impressive that critics, as well as audiences, couldn’t ignore him for Filmfare Best Actor in a Negative Role Award. However, Anjaam flopped miserably at the box office.

 

Duplicate:

Mahesh Bhatt’s directorial venture Duplicate (1998) showed SRK in a double role for the first time. However, in this film, one character was a negative one. SRK’s portrayal of gangster Manu Dada is still one of the favourite characters of his fans. However, this film tanked at the box office too.

Don:

And last but not the least, Don (2006). Don was the official remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s superhit film Don (1978). Well, after 8 years, SRK had played a negative role in Don. And we must say, his power of doing negative roles is unimpeachable. His dialogue delivery, his style, his attitude was just perfect.

Happy Birthday to the King of Bollywood!!

Gauri Khan Shares Her Liking & Disliking On Her Birthday

Happiness lies in creating of your own. Gauri Khan is one of the examples of this. Gauri made her own mark in spite of a superstar husband and formed her famous Gauri Khan Designs. Coming from a basic ordinary childhood, the star wife of Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri was brought up in a joint family.  Though she is reaping the benefits of her labour as she was recently mentioned on Fortune magazine’s top 50 Most Powerful Women in Business in India.

Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri Khan has been unstoppable. Even though the mother of three might not be in the limelight, she surely has a knack to steal the spotlight without acting in a single movie. Through her interior designing work, Gauri has made a name that shows her creativity and her work while highlighting how she skillfully embraces her passion.

However, it’s not all roses for the star wife. In an old video where fashion designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla had started a series of First Ladies with Abu-Sandeep, they asked her if there was something she didn’t like about being a star wife and she said, “People always have questions about Shah Rukh.” With the massive fan following SRK enjoys globally, it is only relevant how Gauri would have to answer all questions about him.

Watch the video below…

Gauri Khan is also the producer and co-owner of Red Chillies Entertainment. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in Aanand L Rai’s Zero co-starring  Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. The film is set to release on December 21.

‘Salman Khan is a better actor than Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan’ Says Katrina Kaif

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are one of the most popular on-screen jodis in Bollywood’s history. Their alleged love affair may have become a thing of the past, but their on-screen chemistry still have fans raving. While, Katrina has never admitted to their past relationship, but she has always gone on record to say that Salman Khan is a very special person in her life and can never be replaced.

Though, Katrina has worked with all-three Khans – Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, but the actress as rarely ever aired her preferences. However, there was that one occasion when she was put through the litmus test (figuratively speaking) by none other than director Karan Johar on his show Koffee With Karan.

The Koffee With Karan host asked the Bollywood diva who she thought was the better actor between Salman, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan and the actress picked Salman Khan as the better one from the monumental list. “I don’t know if people will ever understand the lifetime of his career or get to understand it. (But) something inside me thinks Salman,” – Katrina had said.

The Khans have been ruling Bollywood ever since the early 90s and have continued to do so even today. When it comes to stardom, there are still no other badshahs of Bollywood compared to Aamir Shah Rukh and Salman. They still hold the biggest Bollywood openings despite being over 50 years old.

Katrina has worked with Aamir in the big blockbuster film Dhoom 3, and will also be sharing screen space with Aamir in the upcoming Diwali release – Thugs of Hindostan. With Shah Rukh Khan too, she was in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, and more recently in Zero, which will hit theatres on December 2.
