Here’s how you can work with Shahrukh Khan in ‘Happy New Year’

Want to share screen space with Shahrukh Khan in Happy New Year? All you need to do is audition online, and if you are talented and lucky, expect a call. 

If you wish to share the same frame as Shahrukh Khan, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity awaits you thanks to daily deals website Groupon India. 

Groupon India has joined hands with SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment to give fans a chance to feature with the superstar in his upcoming film "Happy New Year". 

The unique initiative has been designed keeping in mind the Bollywood frenzy and a desire among millions to act with the best of Bollywood stars and to give a chance to aspirants to showcase their talent on the silver screen. 

"We gave a long thought to this whole idea and spoke to a lot of budding actors and movie moguls before coming up with it. The conclusion was that auditions are not easy to crack and a big hassle in terms of travelling to various locations, so we thought what better than having an online process where a person can audition by just using a web cam," Ankur Warikoo, CEO, Groupon India told IANS. 

"We invested in creating a platform 'onewayticket.in' which enables people to submit auditions with the help of a few clicks either by their computer or a mobile phone. Eminent judges are on board and they will screen the contestants to select the best 200 who will then go to Mumbai, the other 300 will be decided through public voting," he added. 

The entire process costs Rs.499. 

Warikoo also says that associating with Shahrukh Khan gels well with the initiative as almost every upcoming actor aspires to be like him. 

"I am personally a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan and Groupon is delighted to be associated with Red Chillies Entertainment. Shah Rukh has a global fan following and Groupon has a global footprint too, there could not have been a better synergy," he said. 

This deal can be availed by Shahrukh Khan's fans in other countries too. These include Malaysia, Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand and Dubai.

Shahrukh Khan's roomie turns Filmistaan lead

The name Sharib Hashmi may not ring a bell. However, if one jogs the memory hard, he would be remembered as the man who played a small but an important part of Shahrukh Khan's Pakistani roommate in Yash Chopra's Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Things are expected to change drastically for Sharib who would now be seen in National Award winning Filmistaan, where he plays the main lead and a central protagonist. 

"The film is set as a laugh riot about a film buff who wants to become an actor in Bollywood, only to find himself being held hostage by Pakistani terrorists. It is a hilarious affair because in any given circumstance, this man unleashes the Bollywood side of him," informs a source. 

The makers wanted an actor who had an appearance of a common man and was a hardcore film buff himself. When Sharib auditioned for the part, they were bowled over and he was roped in. 

"Incidentally, the film was ready when Jab Tak Hai Jaan released and had even been through film festivals. During last year and a half, it has traveled globally and fetched quite a few awards for itself, including a National Award," the source adds, "This is when UTV spotted the film and decided to pick it up for release." 

If the promo is any indication, Sharib has unleashed the comic side of his in a major way and let his hair down. Though he was overshadowed by Shahrukh's star presence in Jab Tak Hai Jaan', indications are that the actor has pretty much come on his own in Filmistaan which releases alongside Akshay Kumar'sHoliday on 6th June. 

Now will Shahrukh too come out in support of the actor and the film? Well, that would make for a pretty sight indeed!

Shahrukh Khan is my role model for film marketing: Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan, who went all out for the publicity of his latest release "Main Tera Hero", says superstar Shah Rukh Khan is his role model when it comes to film marketing.

"My role model for marketing films is Shah Rukh Khan. He is unbelievable. Look at how he marketed 'Chennai Express', said Varun.

In "Main Tera Hero", Bollywood's other beloved Khan, Salman, has lent his voice. Isn't he a role model for Varun?

"He is a role model for not just me but every young actor. More than anything else he's a tremendous human being. He just called up Dad and said, 'I want to do something for Varun.' Dad gave him the voice of god. We didn't want Salman to help market the film," said the young actor.

"Main Tera Hero" is directed by Varun's father David Dhawan. The latter had a health scare during the film's shoot in Bangkok and Varun says he is not happy with the fact that his father has not been taking care of his health.

"I've actually inherited my energy level from him. But he's not physically fit enough to carry off the energy. I tell him to get fitter. I take him to the gym with me. But not frequently enough.

"To add to his weight woes, he is a foodie. But he has cut down on his food. The only reason I am talking about it is because I'm desperate for him to get fitter. Lots of his friends tell him to change his lifestyle. I feel if he reads what his son is saying, he will take care of his health," he added.

Varun is also close to his brother Rohit. Any plans of working with him?

"I definitely want to work with him. When the time is right, we will. But nothing planned right now," he said.

IPL opening ceremony: Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone share stage with MS Dhoni, Sunil Gavaskar

Abu Dhabi: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and actress Deepika Padukone bowled over the guests attending the IPL gala dinner on Tuesday night at the Emirates Palace by busting some moves and laying on their collective charm. The sit-down dinner was a glamorous prelude to the cricket beginning on Wednesday in the capital.

"What a wonderful city Abu Dhabi is. I need to thank them for hosting us and being so warm and gracious," said Khan as a dazzling array of firework went off around him.

"I wish all the players the very best and I can't wait to see them create magic on the field," said Khan. He also thanked Shaikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister Of Culture, Youth And Community Development, for his unstinting support.

Accompanying him on his mission to entertain was his Chennai Express co-star Deepika Padukone. While she didn't take the microphone or speak to the guests, she made up for it by dancing like a dream to songs from her blockbustersGoliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

If Khan brought a smile to the guests' face with his numerous antics with IPL players including India captain MS Dhoni, interim BCCI president Sunil Gavaskar was in a more somber mood as he promised to protect the integrity of the game during the tournament, which has recently been marred by reports of match fixing. He appealed to the guests not to tarnish all the players with the same brush.

"We will leave no stone unturned to reclaim the piety in the world of IPL cricket," said Gavaskar.

Shah Rukh Khan gifts Farah Khan another car!

Farah Khan may not be the best driver in town, but today she's a proud owner of a black, top-class Merc. The SUV was gifted to her by Shah Rukh Khan yesterday. 

The Happy New Year director had crashed her old car about a month ago and was using SRK's Volkswagen to commute locally while hers was recuperating in the garage. The actor's generosity didn't stop at loaning her his vehicle.

Yesterday, he surprised her by presenting her with the SUV just when she was contemplating buying a new vehicle. She didn't have the time earlier, as she was shooting almost every day. 

Confirming the news Farah said, "Shah Rukh called me at his office and said he wanted to show me something. He usually gifts me things when we wrap up a shoot but Happy New Year is far from over. We'll be shooting till June. So I did not seen this gift coming."

And has she taken a spin in it yet? "Yes, Shah Rukh took me for a drive from his office to Linking Road. That's the best we could manage in the little time we had. It was a lot of fun," she laughed. 

In the past, SRK has gifted Farah two cars - one after they completed Main Hoon Na and the other, after they wrapped up Om Shanti Om. Farah had directed both the films.
