Bollywood star backs luxury project in Dubai

Shah Rukh Khan, one of the biggest stars in Bollywood, has teamed up with an alliance of developers to endorse a AED2.3 billion (US $626 million) mixed-used project in Dubai which was first launched in 2008, but stalled by the global financial crisis.

The movie star has joined up with Aristocrat Star, PAL Developments and Pacific Ventures for their Royal Estates by Shah Rukh Khan development, which will house a total of 2000 units, comprising apartments, villas, boutique retail spaces, an office complex and a luxury hotel. The development will be located in Dubai Investments Park.

Units will go on sale from August 7 with apartment prices starting at AED450,000 and townhouses from AED1.6 million.

The endorsement comes nearly six years since The Royal Estates community was first announced by Aristocrat Star Investments in October 2008.

In a statement published by UAE daily Khaleej Times, Khan said: "Everyone's story begins in their home and no home is less than a kingdom for its residents. Three renowned and experience organizations Aristocrat, Pal and Pacific Ventures have partnered to develop and present Royal Estates which ensures uncompromised comfort, elegance, safety and a state of the art landscaped serenity that weaves a stellar community.

"I am delighted to be associated with this project."

According to the development's website, the Royal Estates have been exclusively designed by Los Angeles-based architect Tony Ashai, while Gauri Khan, the wife of Shah Rukh, is behind the interiors.

Phase 1 of the project comprising 400 units is scheduled to be delivered during the first quarter of 2016.

It's not the first time that the Khans have endorsed real-estate projects in the UAE. In 2008, Khan backed a project in Ras Al Khaimah called Shah Rukh Khan Boulevard which was put on hold soon after its launch.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is coming back to his roots - the small screen, soon, reveal sources.

The Bollywood 'Badshah' is said to have been roped in to host a grand live show based on the hugely popular international series "Got Talent", for a leading Hindi general entertainment channel in December.

A formal announcement of the show will be made at a press conference here Friday, but the source aware of the grand plans told IANS that the show will be one live event to be telecast on the channel.

The source said that if things go as planned, international TV personality Simon Cowell, creator of "Got Talent" and "The X Factor", may also visit Mumbai for the show, likely to be a first-of-its-kind twist on "Got Talent". The live event will be held at the Andheri Sports Complex here in December.

Meanwhile, the Indian television already has "India's Got Talent", the desi spin-off of Cowell's show.

Shah Rukh, one of Bollywood's most iconic stars, is not new to the TV medium.

The 48-year-old started his tryst with showbiz via television with shows like "Fauji" and "Circus", and it was from there that he landed a role in his debut film "Deewana" 22 years ago.

He returned to the medium to host the third season of the hugely popular game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" and later he anchored "Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?" and "Zor Ka Jhatka".

On the Bollywood front, Shah Rukh will be seen in Farah Khan's multi-starrer "Happy New Year", which happens to be tinsel town's big ticket Diwali release this year.

Shah Rukh Khan is writing a book for daughter Suhana on ‘acting’

 

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan revealed on a television chat show that he is writing a book on acting for his 14-year-old daughter Suhana.

The actor, who was on 'The Anupam Kher Show – Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai', divulged that Suhana, who stays in Mumbai, cherishes a desire to become an actor like her father.

Shah Rukh Khan said that Suhana is keen on becoming an actor as she grows up and the superstar father is very supportive of her decision.

The actor said that he respects all his female co-stars and would love to see Suhana in the league of current day divas like Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma to name a few.

Shah Rukh Khan said that he is also writing a book only for Suhana to give her tips on acting. The doting father of three, elaborated that the book titled 'To Suhana, On Acting, From Papa', only consists of small paras of his style of acting should his daughter ever need tips on acting. The 'Chak De! India' actor however feels that Suhana should invent a style of her own.

Talking about his elder son Aryan's step into Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan said that its a trend for an actor's son to become an actor, therefore Aryan may follow his footsteps. But King Khan was more sure about Suhana's acting career than Aryan.

Meanwhile, Anupam Kher also revealed that Shah Rukh Khan has penned a book on his life titled '20 years of a Decade'. Shah Rukh said that he started the book as a therapeutic device on the advice of film maverick Mahesh Bhatt. He revealed that the book which comprises pivotal points of his life was supposed to be over after he completed a decade in Bollywood, thus the name.

But, SRK found that important incidents of his life piled one after another and he could never end his book.

Shah Rukh Khan also opened up about various aspects of his life – his bond with his children and acting – on the show.

With a slight slip in modesty, King Khan also said that he was 'the last of the superstars'. Shah Rukh Khan said, that though many things make him happy, but nothing overpowers the happiness of listening to the director say 'action' when he is standing before the camera.

Shah Rukh Khan is currently shooting for his friend and director Farah Khan's 'Happy New Year' which also stars, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani in lead roles. The film is slated to release on October 23 this year.
