Indian officials have launched an investigation into Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan over reports he knows he and his wife are having a baby boy, in a country where pre-natal sex tests are illegal.
Reportedly, Dr. Mahesh Yadav, who is an Ayurveda specialist, has painted a portrait of the senior Bachchan with human blood, to support the country-wide request to award the actor, the country's ultimate recognition, the Bharat Ratna, for his excellence in cinema.
What is even more astonishing is that the blood that was used to create the portrait was contributed by a group of fans of the megastar in Bhopal.
According to the doctor, the aim of the campaign was to send across a message to the President, Pratibha Patil, to present the prestigious award to the actor.
In his last trip to India, the 42 year old actor, who is waiting for the release of his latest action film, 'Real Steel', had stated that he was happy that the Indian market for Hollywood films has grown over the years.
During his last four- day visit to India, Jackman shared a great camaraderie with Shahrukh and filmmaker Karan Johar and the actor couldn’t stop mentioning that Bollywood films are big and extremely popular in the west.
Calling herself lucky for finding a partner like Sahil, the gorgeous lady is not so keen on marriage as she that is a mere formality that could occur anytime once she was a little more secure on the career front.
“I am blessed that, I finally found my life partner and marriage is just a formality which will happen in due course. I and Sahil were seeing each other before the movie started. We are in a committed relationship,” she said.
“Sahil’s family has made me welcome but marriage is just a formality, it’ll happen in time. We are in no hurry,” the actress informed.
Talking about his association with Kashmir, that dates back to 1970s, when he shot for ‘Bobby’ in the picturesque beauty of the valley, a nostalgic Rishi said, “Very few places in the world provide so much variety as Kashmir. You have so much variety here. It is a virgin beauty. This place is all about romance.”
"When we were shooting for Bobby in Pahalgam, it started snowing. So, we included that snow sequence also,” he said, adding that the Kapoor family in Bollywood has a deep association with Kashmir and were connected with the soil there.
Initially, the actor had no plans of celebrating his birthday, but seems to have later decided to have a small celebration with friends and the ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Barfee’ team.
