I came across the video below today… It’s a kind of dinner thing that he did in New Jersey in 2005 and I guess I somehow found it particularly amusing cause it feels a bit like he’s doing American style stand-up comedy.
You may remember I spotted a very strange creation that involved India, China and the USA together. Chandni Chowk to China has done reasonably well from what I’ve gathered, but the response is a bit mixed.
It’s pretty much the first Bollywood film ever to be marketed at non-Indians in the USA and it received a [...]
Steve Jobs: “I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.”
Since I’ve been following Steve Jobs’ health lately, I thought it appropriate to mention the story has once again been changed :] His health is apparently bad enough for him to take medical leave after all.
So the speculation will once again be rife I guess…
The ban on smoking in films, which India introduced in 2005, has now been lifted.
I’m completely not used to seeing Shahrukh taking any kind of political stands - he’s the guy, who always wiggles out of making any definitive comments on anything political.

Just came across that interview and I particularly liked this bit, but if you like Daniel Radcliffe interviews then the whole show is worth a look :)

As expected, my Robert Pattinson obsession was short-lived (though exams and projects and stuff are still in full throb *sigh*). I think he’s been side-tracked partly by the European Figure Skating Championships (not that I had time to properly watch them or anything, but I have seen a bit :) I’m really happy for Przemek [...]
