Trust Salman Khan to do whatever he wants to do.

Paris Hilton performed at a private party in Pune during her hush-hush visit to India. That is the only way one can understand what the Dabangg Khan did at a friend’s birthday celebrations.

The birthday boy? Some businessman by the name of Bala, who is notoriously famous for throwing star-studded bashes in the city!

Since 33-year-old Paris Hilton was Salman's guest of honour, the host went all out and made her feel special at the party.

Salman Khan's favourite bracelet, which the actor has worn in many of his films and which he has always been exceptionally possessive about now adorns Paris Hilton's wrist.

Salman gave his bracelet to Paris and the socialite posed proudly.

Salman is known for his chemistry with beauties and was also seen entertaining Pamela Anderson during her stay in the Bigg Boss house.

To top it all off - Salman took off Mika Singhs’s diamond necklace and put it around Paris' neck.

Thanking Salman and Mika, Paris tweeted: "Thank you beingsalmankhan & @MikaSingh for the beautiful diamond Sikh Khanda necklace! So thoughtful.@MikaSingh I had so much fun too!” and also “Thank you so much for the lovely present! I will treasure it forever. Love my new present! Thank you again beingsalmankhan & @MikaSingh. So generous & sweet @ India".

Superstar Aamir Khan, who does his bit to bring social change in the country via his show "Satyamev Jayate", is disturbed over the sexual assault on a young woman in Delhi.

He stressed upon the need for fast track courts to dispense quick justice in these cases.

"What has happened in Delhi is really unfortunate. Each time I read something like this, my heart bleeds. It is really sad," Aamir, who is known to raise society's issues in "Satyamev Jayate", said here in an interview.

"If we want the rate of such incidents to come down, then one of the important things we need to do is (facilitate) a high rate of conviction. In the cases of crime against women or children, the first thing we have to do is to have fast track courts," he added.

A 25-year-old woman was reportedly raped by an Uber cab driver Dec 5 night after she took the cab around 9.30 p.m. from the capital's Vasant Vihar area.

Aamir said there's a dire need to sensitise the public towards law and order to curb the rape incidents and added: "We have to give top priority to the security of women and children."

Govinda talks about his fallout with best buddy

JODI NO.1: Govinda and David Dhawan were inseperable and delivered hit after hit during the 90’s

JODI NO.1: Govinda and David Dhawan were inseperable and delivered hit after hit during the 90’s

Has Bollywood’s Jodi. No 1 gone kaput? We’re referring to Govinda’s friendship with film director David Dhawan, who at the peak of their dosti delivered one musical comedy hit after another during the 1990s. ‘Coolie No. 1’, ‘Hero No. 1’ and ‘Raja Babu’ are just a pick of some of the favourites that the buddies had worked together on.

Govinda

Govinda

The entertainers last joined hands in 2007 for ‘Partner’, which changed the game for Govinda.

Latest grapevine is that all is not well on the Govinda and David. Whispers have it that they have parted ways in their respective careers and that’s a major reason why they haven’t united to make a film for years.

Whatever the actual rift is, we don’t know, but we have learnt that David has taken a backseat because of his health issues and his two sons – Varun and Rohit Dhawan – are doing well in their respective careers.

On the other hand, Govinda is focussed on making his own career work and already has two big banner films releasing this month, YRF’s ‘Kill Dil’ and Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Happy Ending’.

Govinda has said: “Maybe, I think, David is in his comfort zone. He’s worked very hard for a long time. Perhaps, he’ll be taking it a little easy and wouldn’t want to concentrate on anything else other than his kids.

“There’s nothing personal against him. I heard David is not keeping well. Three of my financers met him to discuss some project but David refused. He didn’t treat them properly. But let it be. Sometimes, keeping away is good and better than dushmani (enmity) and jhhagda (war).”

Govinda’s own children seem to be doing well, with both his daughter Narmmadaa and son Yashvardhan by following in their father’s footsteps into the world of bollywood.

Ranbir Kapoor joins TAG Heuer

India’s leading actor joins the Swiss pioneering watch brand’s star team of sports & celebrity ambassadors

Ranbir Kapoor joins TAG Heuer

Ranbir Kapoor joins TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer, the world leader in prestigious and high-end chronographs, has just announced the signing of Bollywood Superstar Ranbir Kapoor for a long-term partnership as a Brand Ambassador.

With this association, TAG Heuer reinforces its leadership position by becoming the only brand in the industry endorsed by two of the biggest names in Bollywood – Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor.

The versatile actor and today’s youth icon, Ranbir Kapoor joins a renowned roster of international sports stars and celebrities that includes football superstar and two time winner of the Ballon d’Or award Cristiano Ronaldo, WTA tennis champion Maria Sharapova, Hollywood film actress Cameron Diaz, Bollywood Actor Shah Rukh Khan, Formula One World Champion Jenson Button, World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier and the entire crew of 2013 America’s Cup winner Oracle Team USA.

The Swiss Avant-Garde watchmaker is best known for breaking rules: harnessing mental fortitude to overcome technology restraints and deliver ground breaking innovation.

Their ‘Don’t crack under pressure’ campaign asserts the powerful truth that achievement is due as much to mental strength as to physical capabilities. A truth that is exhibited in the daring watches and chronographs produced by TAG Heuer.

“Far more than a claim, it is a powerful mindset,” said TAG Heuer CEO Stephane Linder.

“Those who know TAG Heuer may recognize the motto, a tribute to an early 90’s campaign which for many remains the most archetypal expression of TAG Heuer’s unbreakable determination.

“The campaign captures the mental strength of our Dream Team, athletes and partners, who reflect the values of the TAG Heuer shield. Be it Cristiano Ronaldo the perfectionist, Maria Sharapova the irresistible, Shah Rukh Khan the King of Bollywood or our latest ambassador Ranbir Kapoor. In India, we are proud to have two of the best names in Bollywood sporting TAG Heuer and we see a great future with them in the coming years.”

“TAG Heuer has always been one of my dreams,” said Ranbir Kapoor. “It started when I was really young, it was the first watch I wanted to own in my life. I remember my parents gifted it to me on my 13th birthday.

“So now, to be associated with the brand is really humbling for me. I really have to pinch myself to believe that I am part of the TAG Heuer family.

“I think TAG Heuer stands for the four principle P’s that is prestige, precision, passion and performance. I think that is something we all and especially I can identify with; the way I look at my career, my life. I believe these are very important aspects for how one should approach their life, their work and their relationships.”

Through his successful career in Bollywood films, Ranbir has become one of the most popular celebrities in India. He is the recipient of several awards and nominations, including five Filmfare Awards for his memorable performances in movies like ‘Rockstar’, ‘Barfi’, ‘Wake Up Sid’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and many more.

Apart from winning accolades for his experimental style of acting, he has also been listed as the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ in India and in 2013 he topped Filmfare's poll of the ‘Most Stylish Young Actor’ and was one of the recipients of ‘People of the Year’ award by the Limca Book of Records.

In addition to acting in films, Ranbir is a football enthusiast and supports numerous charities and causes.

He endorses the Spanish football club FC Barcelona and is the vice-captain of the All Stars Football Club, a celebrity football club that raises money for charity. He is a co-owner of the Indian Super League football team ‘Mumbai City FC’, and is the co-founder of the production company ‘Picture Shuru Productions’.

Salman Khan

Salman Khan

The 12 year-old hit-and-run case of Salman Khan was slated to have a hearing on 5th November but it has now been deferred to November 24th.

The last development in the case was when JW Mariott’s parking assistant had recognized actor Salman Khan sitting on the driver’s seat of the land cruiser that had rammed into a suburban street killing one and injuring four others.

The case has been through many twists to date.

In the midst of all trials, in August the Mumbai Police had told the court that the case diary consisting of all the case documents had gone missing in addition to 55 of the 63 case related documents.

Although post retrieval, the court has now asked the prosecution to submit a new plan of action.

The hearing has now been postponed towards the end of November and only time will tell what will be the fresh twists in this trial.

Gasps as fans see SRK on crutches

Leave a Comment

There was a moment's stunned silence, and a few women close by even gasped, as Shah Rukh Khan walked out of the Udaipur airport with a supporting crutch held in his left hand.

Looking a bit tired, he had a woollen hairband on the head, and wore black trousers and a white shirt. This was perhaps SRK's first outing after he was hurt on the sets of Farah Khan's Happy New Year, when a door fell on him.

The injury was such that he had been advised bed rest by the doctors, but it seems that he really wanted to attend a wedding in Udaipur, India.

Twitter soon exploded with 'get well soon, SRK' messages, as this picture went viral.

Many other stars also made it to the wedding functions of the NRI couple, Heena and Gaurav. Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar, Malaika Arora Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Terence Lewis and Sonu Nigam were among those present at the sangeet ceremony.

The actors danced till the wee hours. Malaika and Karan, who were hosting the sangeet ceremony, reached the venue together. Johar wrote on a micro-blogging site, "Just landed in Udaipur for a friend's wedding!!! Lovely weather..."
