Acotr Shah Rukh Khan Banned for Life

Posted: 18 May 2012 03:09 AM PDT

The Mumbai Cricket Association has banned Shah Rukh Khan from entering the famous Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for life. The King Khan reportedly assaulted the security personnel at the stadium for not allowing him and his entourage to enter the cricket ground. The situation turned ugly with the star and his supporters hurling abuses at the security personnel who were doing their job.

However, Shah Rukh's version is that the security personnel manhandled his daughter and this irked him which led to the altercation. The MCA has not taken this issue lightly and apart from banning the star from entering the Wankhede Stadium also filed a complaint at the Marine Drive police station.

It may be mentioned here that the King Khan is one of the co-owners of the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders.

Actor Amitabh Bachchan's KBC beats Aamir Khan's Satyamev Jayate

Posted: 18 May 2012 02:54 AM PDT

While the Bollywood biggies are gradually making their way towards the small screens, a war is mandatory amongst them. Aamir Khan's recent television show Satyamev Jayate, that has received nationwide applauds, somehow failed to beat megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Satyamev Jayate has clocked an opening TVR (Television Rating) of 3 on Star Plus. But, Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati series has been the leading show so far. KBC's five series clocked massive opening TVR.

Even after SRK took over KBC, it did a good business. On the other hand, Salman Khan's Dus Ka Dum too was proved a big hit amongst the masses. But, beating all, Big B finally emerged as the winner in the world of television.
