Salman again takes a dig at Shahrukh

>> Tuesday, August 18, 2009


Bollywood biggest Cold War needs just small sparks for new flares. Both Shahrukh and Salman miss no chance of taking a dig at each other. Just when the entire Bollywood stayed shocked to Shahrukh Khan’s detention at the Newark International Airport Salman said there was no big deal about it. Salman said that it was a normal security procedure and he had faced it several times in his life. He added that the security measure was actually a very Good thing.

Salman also said that if the detention was considered necessary by US Customs and Border Protection anybody flying to the United States must cooperate with their authorities. Trying to prove his point Salman stressed on the fact that there had been no major attacks since 9/11 because of the stringent security measures adopted in US.

Comeon Salman there are better occasions to take a dig as the question here is not Shahrukh along but all Indians flying to US.


Govt to raise Shahrukh’s detention issue with US


The Government on Sunday said that it intends to strongly raise the incident related to Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan’s detention at the Newark International Airport in US, with the United States. Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel, reacting to the incident, said that such incidents were unacceptable.We will take the issue with the United States government strongly.

Such incidents involving Indians due to their religion or nationality should not happen. We will not accept it,” said Praful Patel. Khan was detained for about two hours on Saturday morning at the airport in New Jersey, USA, where he had arrived to attend a South Asian related event.

Khan was released after Congress MP Rajiv Shukla spoke to the authorities in the US and the Indian consulate. He was detained after his name flashed on a computer and was asked several questions about the purpose of his visit.

Big B who has been spending his time nursing good friend Amar Singh blogged, ‘Jaya left this evening for Mumbai after having spent more than a month by the side of Amar Singh ji during his ailment. I stay back till he is sound enough to travel back. Abhishek is back today from Mani Ratnam’s Ravana shoot in Ooty, now Udhagamandalam its original name.’

The actor however spoke on a serious note saying, ‘Aishwarya has taken ill and is down with chest infection and flu like symptoms. Had a high fever yesterday but is settling down today. Its worrying to be so far away from children and not be there to look after them. Yes, they are mature and married and responsible, but children will always remain children !’

Abhi tattooing Ash’s name on forearm reports are false

Abhi, Ash

There have been widespread media reports in last few days about Abhishek Bachchan being the next in line to tattoo his super star actress wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s name on his forearm. It was also reported that Abhishek who is presently shooting down South for his Mani Ratnam film Ravana has taken an appointment with the same tattoo artist who did the tattoo for Hrithik Roshan of wife Suzzanne.

Reports attributed to “sources close to Abhishek’ further claimed that he wanted to surprise Aishwarya with the tattoo.But we have managed to get official confirmation from Abhishek Bachchan’s spokesperson that these reports floating around are nothing but plain rumours. We were further told that Abhishek is presently shooting for Ravana near Ooty and has not taken any appointment from any tattoo artist and has no such plans either.

The tattoo trend of imbibing one’s partner’s name on one’s most visible part of the body- the forearm had begun with Saif Ali Khan getting the ‘Kareena’ tattoo done. Akshay Kumar too has been sporting his son’s Aarav’s name on his back.

The source adds, “The children will not just study there but also prepare to take part in the Olympics. Akshay loves martial arts. He feels that it’s very important for everybody to go through training. The modalities for the selections of the educational sponsorships are being worked out.Akshay says,This karate championship is a dream I have been living for many years. Turning it into a reality has been one of my biggest highs in life. I am looking forward to the tournament in October and am hoping this tournament will encourage little Akshay Kumars all over India.

The actor adds, “I want to give a bit of myself back to the world. The only way I know how to do it is through karate. I want to make it happen for all those children who aspire to be like me. The kids participating in this tournament will get a chance to win a scholarship.” The Akshay Kumar 1st Invitational Open National Karate Championship takes place between October 22-25 at the Andheri Sports Complex, Mumbai.

Director Karan Johar, who is helming Khan’s forthcoming feature My Name Is Khan, said that he was shocked.What I feel that what happened today [Saturday] is very unfortunate and we need to know why did that happen to him, because I think there is no reason that he had to go through all that.
