Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan: two of the most prolific names in the Bollywood industry, have a love story that makes everyone around them still want to believe in fairy tales. A story worth filming, their love was so strong, it broke several hearts. Without further ado, here is jumping into a story which needs to be told, heard and read!
The first time Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Chibber laid eyes on each other was at a common friend’s party in the year 1984. Only 18 years old, Shah Rukh Khan fell head over heels in love with the 14 year old Gauri. He was so shy at the point, he did not have the courage to ask her for a dance. When he finally went up to her, Gauri took one look at the nervous wreck standing in front of her and said no, as she was waiting for her “boyfriend.”

The news broke the young King Khan’s heart, making him forget about love and happily ever afters. It was only much later when the two were on a sporadic phone call that Gauri told Shah Rukh the truth. She was at the party with her brother and not her boyfriend! Shah Rukh’s heart opened all over again and that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Love actually? No. Not quite.
Gauri very quickly fell for Shah Rukh’s wit, charm and easy manner. While the two seemed very happy on the surface, Gauri realised Shah Rukh may seem easy going on the outside, but was really controlling on the inside. SRK would want Gauri to not leave her hair open, would not want her to talk to other men without him being around and other overbearing things like that. SRK’s over possessive attitude got so bad that on the day after her birthday, Gauri disappeared to Bombay with her friends.

When Gauri disappeared, SRK realised he realised he was not only in love with her, he could not live without her. An out and out Bollywood hero, Shah Rukh Khan turned into a real life Devdas. With a mere Rs. 10,000 in his pocket and only the name of the city in mind, Shah Rukh Khan reached Mumbai, desperately in love and hopeful in life. A frantic Shah Rukh searched all over the city, with no real luck. After almost giving up hope, he saw Gauri sitting by herself at a beach. The moment the two saw each other, it was like they had eyes only for each other. That moment, with the sun in their eyes and wind in their hair, the two knew the only thing to do next was to get married.

Religion plays a huge part in every major aspect of life and it did in Gauri’s and Shah Rukh’s marriage as well. While they took the momentous and life changing choice to tie the knot, their parents needed a lot more convincing. One was a Hindu Brahmin and the other was a Muslim, a union between the two religions was just not possible. What would society say? While now it is much more accepted, mixed marriages were considered to be a definite no no at the point. After much to and fro, the parents finally gave in, coming to the understanding that nothing could stop these two from doing what they wanted.

25th October 1991 was the day Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan became one, proving to everyone love lasts beyond apprehensions and prejudices. Even after 27 years of achieving the impossible, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan remain in love, giving everyone around them solid couple goals!

Badhaai Ho Trailer Is Hilarious. Watch It Here!
Badhaai Ho, the next Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra starrer, just got exciting. The makers of this film just dropped the trailer and it gives one everything you could want and more from an Ayushmann Khurrana starrer.
— Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) September 11, 2018
The trailer throws light on family problems with a brand new twist. What would you do if you found out your mother (a mother of two grown up children) is pregnant, thanks to the active sex life? Yeah! That is exactly what is unveiled in the trailer of Badhaai Ho! The two odd minute trailer shows how Ayushmann Khurrana‘s (Nakul) character finds out the news and about how he shares the news with his love interest (Sanya Malhotra’s character.)
#BadhaaiHo the trailer’s out now! Check it out to find out about the ‘khush khabri.’ 😉@sanyamalhotra07 @ayushmannk @raogajraj @neenagupta001 @CinemaPuraDesi @ChromePictures @BadhaaiHoFilm https://t.co/YJJDEywCxI

It is not just Nakul who has a problem with the news. Everyone from Sanya’s character to the old people in the house, has a problem with the news shared by Nakul’s mother. In addition to this, Sanya breaks the news of her love life and tries to convince her parents about her love interest. However, unfortunately for the young couple, the news about Nakul’s pregnant mother comes as a deal breaker. Watch the trailer here!

Here’s Taking A Look At The Wonderful Kishore Kumar
A cold winter afternoon. A warm, summer night. A night of reminiscing. A day of sorrow. All these things have one thing in common: Kishore Kumar. Born on 4 August, 1929 as Abhas Kumar Ganguly, Kishore Da was one of the few actors of his time who could make people laugh, gasp in surprise and cry all at the same time. While he may have been a talented actor, Kishore Da soon realised his real passion lay in singing.
It was SD Burman who first realised the beauty behind the voice of this great man. Before the weekend truly takes over, here is looking at some interesting facts about this prolific singer!
Despite being such a confident singer, Kishore Da was quite paranoid when it came to money. In fact, rumour is that he never sang until his secretary confirmed the arrival of payment.
2. Always a loner
Kishore Da was perhaps one of the loneliest people in the industry. In an interview, he went so far as to admit that he preferred talking to trees more than to human beings.
3. Married to marriage
Did you know that Kishore Kumar was married not once, but 4 times? First time to Bengali singer and actress Ruma Ghosh, second to Bollywood actress Madhubala and the third was to Yogeeta Bali for two years. Leena Chandavarkar was his fourth wife and the marriage lasted till Kishore Da’s death. Not bad at all, right?
4. Pranks were his middle name
Kishore Kumar loved pranks. When he was in the 5th grade, he realised he did not know the answers in the exam. What does he do then? Fill the gaps with jokes and riddles! There was a board saying “Beware of Kishore” outside his Mumbai’s Warden Road house!
5. Songs inspired from life
Every song sung by Kishore Kumar was inspired by events from his real life. Did you know that he still owes Rs. 5 and 12 paise (he immortalised this fact in that famous song Paanch Rupaiya Barah Anna from the 1958 film, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi) to his college canteen?
The long, black overcoat, the signature shawl and the deep melodious voice are all synonymous with the universally loved man, Kishore Kumar. If you are as nostalgic as I am, then have a great Friday with some mesmerising memories!
#DEEPVEER Are Getting Married At This Beautiful Location
Deepika Padukone’s and Ranveer Singh’s wedding is the most awaited event of Bollywood. The star duo have been very discreet about their wedding details, which are giving rise to many rumours. According to Filmfare, the duo are going to seal the deal at Lake Como, in Italy.
A source close to the couple has reportedly informed Filmfare, #DeepVeer are tying the knot on November 20th. That is only in three months, we are counting down the days to the event. The wedding is going to be a small intimate affair, the source informed Filmfare, “It’s a very special day for both Ranveer and Deepika which is why they just want the close ones to be present for their wedding ceremony. Mostly it will be their families and a few close friends. The guest list consists of merely 30 people and that’s exactly how these two want it. Italy is a favourite destination of both Ranveer and Deepika so they want to keep their big day more of a private affair.”
The famous singer John Legend got married to Chrissy Teigen at Lake Como. We cannot wait to see the beautiful couple at this breathtaking location.
After the small wedding in Italy, the couple are going to hold grand receptions in India. One will be held in Deepika’s hometown Bengaluru and the other will be held in Mumbai.
The couple were congratulated by Kabir Bedi on twitter.

Ranveer Singh is Deepika’s personal photographer on her Instagram.

10 Iconic Sri Devi Looks
Sri Devi was the perfect mix of talent and beauty. She could charm anybody with those big expressive eyes and her attractive smile. Sri Devi pulled off every look, with an exceptional amount of pizzazz. She did it all so effortlessly. Sri Devi was a fashion icon for her generation. On her birthday we celebrate her by looking back at ten of her most iconic looks.
The Hawa Hawai! How can we forget about her most iconic moment till date? The gold dress and the brilliant head piece were definitely hard to pull off, but the only person that could rock it and look absolutely stunning is Sri Devi.
This image has got me awestruck. Her eyes have so much expression, the big lashes only emphasise her doe eyes. The red lips with the red outfit is a classic.
Sri Devi looked like a literal goddess when she donned beautiful jewellery and blinged out outfits in the film Himmatwala.
Her ensemble from the film Chaalbaaz has to be my personal favourite. Sri Devi’s monochromatic outfit, with the big hoops, gives her a badass look.
Sri Devi definitely did make everyone run out and copy her look with a sleeveless blouse and a pearl necklace when she wore it in the film Chandni. She was definitely an iconic trend setter.
The oversized patterned shirt with a trouser worked extremely well with her character in the film Gumraah. The short hair suited emphasised her facial structure, giving her a powerful look.
The innocent look in her film Khuda Gawaah; was completed when she adorned minimal jewellery and paired it with subtle makeup.
Sri Devi was definitely a Roop Ki Rani in the film Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja. The big hair and lashes, with a bold lipstick, complemented her snazzy gown.
In the film Lamhe the beautiful actress emphasises her good looks, with the perfect amount of makeup, and beautiful outfits.
Her character in English Vinglish was fearless and brave, she managed to pull that look off with a lot of class. The minimal makeup and traditional outfit suited Sri Devi very much.
Sholay Facts We Bet Will Make You Watch The Movie Again!
Sholay is perhaps one of the most iconic films in Bollywood to be made. Even 43 years after the film released, it is perhaps one of the most loved movies ever! If you have been living under a rock for the last god knows how many years, then these unknown facts will definitely make you want to watch Sholay!
1 Gabbar Singh’s role
Amjad Khan was never the first choice for Gabbar Singh. Did you know Gabbar’s role was going to be played by Danny Denzongpa? However, the actor turned down the role as he was already shooting for another film at the point. Interestingly, there actually was a dacoit called Gabber Singh from Gwalior, who used to cut off peoples noses and ears if they refused to accept him as the over lord!
2. Ramnagar village
Ramnagar, a village about 50 kms away from Bangalore, is still called Ramgarh because Sholay was shot there! So famous was the film, that even almost half a century later, the original name of the village is long forgotten!
3. True love
Dharmendra was head over heels in love with the Dream Girl, Hema Malini! During the shooting of the film, the actor used to play pranks on the spot boys just so he could have a reason to embrace the Dream Girl over and over again!
4. Dedication explained
Remember the famous friendship song Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra? The song took 21 days to shoot! Incidentally, remember the scene where Rekha lit the diya? That one scene was shot over a period of 20 days!
5. Salim Khan, the man of the hour!
While the dialogue, “Kitne Aadmi The” is still famous the world over, there is an interesting history behind the line. The term was coined by Salim Khan after not one, not five, but 40 retakes!
Forty three years ago, Ramesh Sippy had a brilliant idea. Today, that idea is a moment etched in the sands of time. If you think we missed any Sholay facts, comment and let us know!
