Recently Shahrukh Khan was honored to receive a prestigious award. He received the award for ‘Knight of the legion of honour’. This award is very prestigious and was given to Amitabh Bachchan in the past. Though King Khan and Big B are both superstars at an equal level in Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan seems to have a larger fan base because of more years of experience added to his acting career. With receiving this award, we wonder if Shahrukh Khan will receive the same love and fandom as Big B in the years to come.
The actor seemed very thrilled to receive this as it was handed over to him on the same day as his mother’s birthday. Expressing his happiness, the actor said, “If she was alive apart from being extremely old, she would have been extremely happy that her son has perhaps the highest honour in the world.” King Khan showed a lot of respect to his late mother by saying these words.
Shahrukh Khan has been very busy filming for his upcoming release. The film titled ‘Happy New Year’ is Shahrukh’s upcoming release which is set to hit theaters during Diwali. He has also been in the news for being heavily involved with promotional activity for this film. It was reported that the actor has planned international marketing schemes for this film. He has planned to make special appearances with Deepika Padukone, who happens to be his co-star in this film. They are set to make these promotional appearances at selective international locations.
This film is produced by none other than King Khan’s wife, Gauri Khan. No wonder the actor has been putting in so much effort for the marketing of this film.The actor has been very busy lately and was also seen attending a film screening for the movie ‘Bobby Jasoos’ in the city. He attended this screening to support his friend, Dia Mirza who is the producer of this film. He also supported Vidya, who was the lead actor of this film. The busy actor said, “I have just completed shooting and then I have come here.” However, the actor couldn’t make it through the entire screening of the film as he recently underwent an eye surgery.
In the mean while Big B who earlier received the French honours, has been very busy with his new television venture. He plays the character of Yudhistir in the upcoming television series called ‘Yudh’. A lot of promotional trailers for this series have been circulated on many channels. The television audiences seem to have high expectations from this series. The director Anurag Kashyap revealed that Amitabh Bachchan will be acting in this series without any make up on, so as all of the other artists. The actor said, “Keeping in mind that it was a directorial decision to make visuals look as real-life as possible, it was essential that the actors looked natural. That helped in the way our scenes were lit up and there were no special efforts to conceal defects, if any, on our faces. These factors work well in the overall look of the product”.
