Karan Johar gives his new year plans a miss; will remain in Mumbai to complete the last leg of My Name is Khan. SRK follows suit; will spend time with family at Mannat

By Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 31, 2009)


Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan are not just the co-producers of My Name is Khan, they plan and cancel their holidays in tandem too. While Karan will stay in town to work on the editing and soundwork of My Name is Khan; SRK will have a lazy time with family at his residence in Bandra, Mannat.

Karan had initially planned to go abroad to bring in the New Year and SRK was supposed to stay at his Dubai villa. However, SRK will return from Dubai to spend a quiet new year at his house.

Our source said, “Karan had cancelled his new year plans last year, because of the 26/11 attacks. He has been visiting Goa for the new year for the past three to four years. This time, he was really looking forward to visiting either LA or New York. He was forced to cancel his trip as he is busy with the editing and some final technical work in the sound department.

SRK had planned to spend the New Year at his Dubai villa with family. But he has also changed his mind and is now returning to Mumbai in the afternoon.”

Karan Johar could not be reached as he is busy editing his film and SRK remained unavailable for comment.

HOT: Kareena and Saif get ready to kiss in their next film

Saif Ali Khan, who’s romantically linked with Kareena Kapoor on screen for the first time and also kisses her

TIMES NEWS NETWORK (BOMBAY TIMES; October 23, 2009)

Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan fans can heave a sigh of relief. Bollywood’s Jodi No 1, seen at fashion shows, parties, holidays abroad but never together on screen, are finally a couple in Karan Johar’s next film Kurbaan (directed by Rensil D’Silva). It’s releasing late November and has Saifeena (as the couple is popularly known in Bollywood in context to the Brangelinas and TomKats of Hollywood) romantically linked, sharing a kiss, making steamy love and what have you…
Their pairing in the film that deals with terrorism in the US, goes beyond glamour, stardom, style and sophistication. Saif, naturally, would rather downplay the kissing and lovemaking in the film. “There’s much more to the film than intimate scenes,” he promises. “But, yes, the intimate moments are bold and honest. Just as the action scenes are raw and bloody. And the songs, genuine and real. Or the story — brutal and shocking.”

He’s conscious of the risk of capitalising on or sensationalising the fact that Kareena and he are
involved off-screen as well. Or that audiences, jaded by the knowledge they the actors know each other so well, might not find their intimacy on screen exciting enough. “But what happens in Kurbaan,” argues Saif, “is that two great actors — if I may call myself that — come together and do what they’re best at. This is what Kareena and I do to earn our living. It’s been widely reported on our holidays and days off… now you see it on screen.”
Kareena was unavailable for comment. Or, maybe she’s not the kiss and tell type of actress.
