THE STAR WARS - { Bollywood }

The Unknown Trivia Controversies of Bollywood Celebrities.

The differences between Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan seem to be widening after their recent brawl in Katrina Kaif’s Birthday bash. In a recent interview to the media, Salman simply refused of any possibility to patch up with SRK. Though, he voiced against labeling the controversy as a war, but he still admitted that both Khans never see eye to eye. "No. Shah Rukh and I will never patch up" said Salman. He also hinted towards his previous clashes with Vivek Oberoi, "When I have never spoken about Vivek Oberoi, why should I speak about Shahrukh?"

According to sources, one night Salman got heavily drunk and asked his driver to take him to SRK’s house. On reaching there, he started threatening Shahrukh’s family. However, Shahrukh was not at home and his guard barred Sallu Mia from entering the house. The guard informed Shahrukh about the incident. By the time Badshah reached home, Salman had already left the place. Salman was heard yelling, "bahar aa sale, main tujhko dikhata hoon kaun asli Khan hai!"

An eyewitness told the media about how the fight sparked off between both Khans at Katrina’s birthday party. The three Khans, Salman, Shahrukh, and Aamir were sitting together and chatting to each other. Suddenly, SRK came out with an idea of a movie in which all three Khans could act. However, Sallu didn’t agree as it requires a dedicated script and a good director that can be a challenging aspect. Our benevolent Sallu Mia, however, suggested of doing a stage show and sending this money to the Prime Minister’s fund

At this, Shahrukh joked that Salman was becoming conscientious these days. Earlier, he got someone operated and now the new thought of PM’s fund simply amused him. Salman had a new point to add, "Now that we’re all above 40, let’s stop talking about films, and do something that will stun the whole nation. Kuch mardonwali baat Karen." SRK took the comment unkindly, and popped up an off-colour joke about Aishwarya Rai. This annoyed Salman and he started abusing King Khan. This resulted into a fight between both of them until the duo had to be dragged off to the opposite directions by other guests present in the party.

The tiny altercation leads to furious clashes. But, we felt impressed by Sallu’s thought of stunning the nation with a benevolent gesture! SRK- it’s time to think about humanity when you have made crores from your movies.Cheers to Salman

While Shahrukh and Aamir Khan woke up to the concept of body-sculpting only in the forties, Salman Khan has been noted for his bulging physique since forever.

Who's bigger in Bollywood, icon Amitabh Bachchan or younger rival Shah Rukh Khan? The two movie stars have been slinging quotes back and forth ever since Khan said recently that the older legend's time was up

Family Feud was never THIS good! A raging rivalry between two of India’s biggest screen stars has worsened after the April wedding of Amitabh Bachchan’s son Abhishek to Aishwarya Rai created the ultimate Bollywood power family.

For years, India has watched the popularity battle between the iconic Amitabh Bachchan, a veteran who ruled the Bollywood box office for decades, and younger superstar Shah Rukh Khan, the reigning hero with a massive fan following.

In recent years, the two stars have taken subtle digs at each other in public although the rivalry was seen to have remained healthy in an industry known for its cliques.

Apparently no more say industry analysts. “With the marriage, the Bachchans have become a formidable commercial package,” said Bollywood commentator, Derek Bose.

“Brand Bachchan is now a threat to others. It has worsened the Bachchan-Khan rivalry, sparking new power equations.”

Team Bachchan: Amitabh and Abhishek are the father/ son tag team duo

The Bachchans omitted to invite Khan and most of Bollywood to the wedding, leaving little doubt about who their friends were.

On the other hand, Khan is suddenly seen bonding more with Bollywood’s two other stars — Salman and Saif — who also share his second name. A few other stars too like Hrithik Roshan, once close to the Bachchans, are seen to have fallen out with them.

“There seem to be two clear groups in Bollywood now — the Bachchans and the Khans,” said Bollywood analyst Taran Adarsh.

Bachchan, 64, and Khan, 41, say their so-called rivalry is a media creation, but those claims have often been contradicted when they’ve taken potshots at each other.

With the Bachchans getting bigger in brand equity, the Khan-Bachchan rivalry is not confined to the Bollywood popularity stakes but has taken on an economic dimension too, analysts said.

Prahlad Kakkar, an Indian advertising guru and friend of the two warring stars, said the formation of two big camps could limit producers’ options and raise the cost of filmmaking.

“The polarization in Bollywood will cause casting problems for producers,” he said.

The rivalry has not only split Bollywood — with only a few big producers on good terms with both actors — but also divided loyalties among influential industrialists and politicians.

While Bollywood is no stranger to cliques, analysts say the Bachchan-Khan spat has taken star rivalry to a new low. And this could change the complexion of Hindi cinema-making.

“It’s a bit like the corporate war of two big brands,” said Bose

These days, Indian entertainment industry is getting interesting thanks to a rivalry between Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan. They are fighting over the top spot of Bollywood. Amitabh Bachchan is old and the living legend. On the other hand, Shahrukh Khan is the most popular hero now and he wants to take the place of Amitabh Bachchan as the top Bollywood legend.

Well, the rivalry is mostly about who can be in the screen more and who can earn more money. It seems that at least in the TV advertising, Amitabh Bachchan is ahead.

Celebrity endorsements are on the rise but clearly advertisers seem to be investing in film stars for more secure returns. Amitabh Bachchan emerged as the biggest investment for advertisers in 2006, gathering a humungous 708 hours of advertising and endorsing 41 brands, followed by Shahrukh Khan, who endorsed 35 brands and rode 650 hours of television airtime last year.

Everyone associated with Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan is well aware of the unspoken rivalry between two of the finest actors. However both the actors have always denied rumours of any kind of rift with the other. In fact publicly both have heaped words of praise and admiration towards each other. However according to sources the rivalry has always been there between Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan. Recently director Karan Johar was dragged into this rivalry as his forthcoming film Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna not only features Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan but also son Abhishek Bachchan.

According to sources, Amitabh Bachchan was not too happy with the screen time that was given to son Abhishek Bachchan in KANK. While Shahrukh is definitely the star of the film and appears in almost every single frame of the film, Abhishek comes across as a mere second fiddle. Sources say “It was obvious that Karan would give more footage to Shahrukh, but Amitji didn’t expect the film to have Shahrukh in each and every frame. It upset him because Abhishek is a very big star now and he has an image to protect.” Hence sources claim that in order to calm and pacify the upset Bachchans, Karan has shot a separate song featuring only Abhi and Preity on the number ‘Where’s The Party Tonight’.

The rock n roll song features a huge lavish set up with Abhi and Preity gyrating to the music. According to sources Karan Johar has unfortunately been dragged into this underplayed rivalry but he is trying to maintain a neutral ground as Shahrukh is very close to him, but at the same time he is well aware of the position and clout that the Bachchans hold in the industry. Karan was earlier too dragged into this rivalry when he wanted to launch the music of KANK at the IIFA 2006 in Dubai. However Shahrukh claimed that he was holidaying with family in London and hence would not be able to go to the IIFA’s . Amitabh Bachchan is the brand ambassador of IIFA. So Karan had to launch the music of KANK first in London with SRK and then once again with the Bachchans at the IIFA in Dubai.

wonder whether Indian viewers are seeing too much of Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan these days. Of course, they are very popular and they have millions of fans in India and abroad

Who's bigger in Bollywood, icon Amitabh Bachchan or younger rival Shah Rukh Khan?

>>The two movie stars have been slinging quotes back and forth ever since Khan said recently that the older legend's time was up. "I am sexy, smart and young. That was his century; this is mine," Press Trust of India quoted Khan as saying.

"Let's see what happens to (Khan) after 35 years," Bachchan retorted in Sunday's PTI. He dismissed talk of any rivalry. "Whatever he says is correct. I am old and he is young, and I agree he is smart and sexy," Bachchan said before going on to question Khan's future.

Affectionately called the "Big B," Bachchan, 63, has a massive fan following among South Asians and has acted in more than 150 movies in a career spanning more than three decades.

Khan, 41, is one of the Bollywood's biggest heartthrobs of the past decade and one of the highest-paid actors in the Indian movie industry.

He has acted in nearly 60 movies, including the hits "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham" ("Some Happiness, Some Sadness"), "Kabhi Haan, Kabhi Na" ("Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No"), and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna ("Never Say Goodbye").

Khan recently replaced Bachchan as host of India's most popular TV program, "Kaun Banega Crorepati" _ a game show based on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." Early ratings appear to indicate the elder superstar had a bigger following

Salman Khan is truly a rock star!! Whenever I watch him talking to media, the sight really amuses me, He comes up with the weirdest of answers, but then there ...
