Are Salman and Shah Rukh Khan Ageing?

Are Salman and Shah Rukh Khan Ageing? The statement may come as a shock to the fans of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan but hold your breath…. 

The brawny Salman Khan, who created box office history with KICK and the debonair Shah Rukh Khan, who recently displayed his eight packs abs in the year’s biggest grosser HAPPY NEW YEAR, both, have fallen to the tenth and thirteenth position, respectively in the 13 edition of the '50 Sexiest Asian Men In The World' list produced annually by Britain's weekly newspaper 'Eastern Eye'. Thus raising speculations is the duo aging and losing their sex appeal?

The top position is won by Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan, who toppled Pakistani singer turned Bollywood heartthrob Ali Zafar to win the prestigious crown of World's Sexiest Asian Man. 

It may be noted that Hrithik Roshan has the distinction of topping the 50 Sexiest Asian Men in the world for the third time. Earlier he topped the chart for two consecutive years in 2011 and 2012 but lost to Pakistan’s handsome star Ali Zafar in 2013 but yet again in 2014 he has acquired the title. 

Thanking the Magazine 'Eastern Eye’ for the honor Hrithik said, “I am humbled by the desirable tag. I believe sexy is less to do with the physical and more to do with the mental perspective on life, others and yourself.”


The title is looked upon in high esteem by the actors because the magazine annually conducts a poll where the audience contributes its part and shares its view in the form of vote. Thus the ranking is judged by the readers hence the actor’s gauge their popularity through the poll.

The surprise element in this year’s list is that none of Bollywood actors like Ranveer Singh, Sidharth Malhotra or Arjun Kapoor featuring in top 10 list. Instead television actor Kushal Tandon, seen in TV serial EK HAZAARON MEIN MERI BEHNA HAI, and in BIGG BOSS session VII is the runner up in this year's list and last year's winner Ali Zafar has slipped to third place on the ratings released here on Wednesday. 

The other actor who come in top 10 list include TV actor Vivian D'Sena (4); Shahid Kapoor (5), Barun Sobti (6), Fawad Khan (7) Ranbir Kapoor (8) and Salman Khan (10). 

Tamil film industry superstar Suriya, who has to his credits hits like GHAJINI (2005), VAARANAM AAYIRAM (2008), AYAN (2009), SINGAM (2010) AND SINGAM II (2013) is the only south star in the list at 50th position

Are Karan Singh Grover and Bipasha Basu Coming Closer?

Karan Singh Grover, the famous model turned actor revived the memory of actor Sunil Dutt, who risked his life and jumped into an flaming inferno on the sets of Mehmoob Khan’s classic epic MOTHER INDIA (1959) and saved the life of actress Nargis ,who was trapped inside the inferno. 

Sunil Dutt’s humanitarian endeavor to jeopardy his life and save Nargis from the fire had such a moving impact on Nargis that she fell in love with the daring actor and the two tied the nuptial knot.

A similar picture of heroic act was visible on the sets of Bhushan Patel’s directed movie ALONE, when the heroine Bipasha Basu accidently fell into the backwaters of Kerala and the hero Karan Singh Grover instantly jumped into the river and rescued Bipasha Basu’s from drowning. 

Bipasha Basu is known for having water phobia as she does not know how to swim. Hence she avoids doing marine scenes. According to a close source from the unit prior to the scene Bipasha had expressed her reservation regarding the scene. The insider said, “The scene required her to jet-ski on the backwaters of Kerala, sitting behind her co-star Karan Singh Grover. Bipasha was hesitant to do the scene due to the oblivious water phobia but the director Bhushan Patel convinced her about the scene’s importance. She agreed.”


“However when the scene was being shot Karan took a sharp turn due which the jet-ski overturned and Bipasha fell into the water. Being untrained to swim she started drowning and began crying for help. Before the crew could arrive Karan, understanding the gravity of the situation jumped into the river and like a true hero he saved Bipasha from drowning,” informed the source. 

It seems Bipasha Basu was quite bowled over by the machismo of Karan and like the Sunil DuttNargis episode rumors mill are rife there is something brewing between Karan and Bipasha. An indicator of their closeness being the recent tweet by Karan on social media confirming his separation with wife actress Jennifer Winegt!

Sonakshi Sinha interested to continue in South Films?

Sonakshi Sinha has had an excellent box office reputation in her early phase with her films like DABANGG, ROWDY RATHORE, SON OF SARDAR, DABANGG 2 doing mind-blowing business at the box office. However recently she is going through a lean phase with most of movies failing to create ripples at box office like HIMMATWALA, BULLETT RAJA, R... RAJKUMAR, HOLIDAY: A SOLDIER IS NEVER OFF DUTY and the latest release Prabhudheva directed movie ACTION JACKSON opposite Ajay Devgan.

She is desperately in need of a box office hit to survive in this competitive film industry and all her hopes are alive with LINGAA opposite southern Super star Rajinikanth.

She is confident of the movie’s super success. In fact she is so impressed by the south film industry that she is looking forward to do many films down south. She says, “The southern film industries’ movies are rich in content, which is why so many of their films get remade in Bollywood.”

“I would love to do more projects (down south) provided I get good scripts. I definitely don’t want my southern film career to end with ‘LINGAA’,” she added.

Though Sonakshi Sinha’s much hyped film with south sensation superstar Mahesh Babu has been shelved yet she continues working with south directors. Her latest film is with A.R. Murugadoss in a “woman-centric” Hindi film.


On being quizzed about the lean phase of her career she said, "I think the best way is to take success and failure in the same stride. Both come one after the other. I have been fortunate that my films have done well. So I don't really go and shout on the rooftop that my film crossed Rs.100 crore, nor do I cry when my film doesn't do well.”

Recently she graced the music release function of her upcoming multi-lingual film LINGAA in Hyderabad on December 8 in a stunning and dazzling bright yellow Anita Dongre suit Accompanying her were Thalivaa Rajinikant, Anushka Shetty, film director K S Ravi Kumar and producer Rockline Venkatesh, Telugu star Jagapati Babu and sound director K Viswanath. The film's music director A R Rahman gave the event a miss.
