Nobody can beat Shah Rukh Khan when it comes to taking pot shots at himself. The Bollywood star was at his wittiest when he shared his aspiration of becoming a porn star.

The actor was in Delhi to launch management guru Arindam Chaudhuri’s new book ‘Discover the Diamond in You’ when he revealed his desire.

“I always wanted to be porn star. I am going to work with all the positivity and clarity to be a porn star,” Shah Rukh said much to the amusement of the packed audience.

And where did this inspiration arise from? “I have always been a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone who was a porn star before becoming Hollywood superstar,” the actor said.

Shah Rukh, famous for his outrageously funny remarks did tickle the funny bone of the audience who was in for a laugh riot while listening to the actor.

And it was the icing on the cake when the actor said, “I will take my flag and put it up in America after becoming the biggest porn star of the world.”

The whole joke started when Chaudhuri, while reading excerpts from his book gave example of Stallone’s determination and his journey from a porn star to becoming one of the Hollywood’s icons.

He also referred how Akio Morita, founder of Sony, Japanese electronics giant, started the company with a dream to have his country’s flag flutter high on the soils of US. “You see that is what happens with students like me who take all the wrong things from best of the examples given to them,” Shah Rukh jested.

TOTAL DHAMAAL: Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suneil Shetty

The winning Hera Pheri team is ready to create a laugh riot… this time with Katrina Kaif

MEENA IYER Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; November 21, 2009)

Life’s a laugh riot, especially when you have the hit combination of Hera Pheri — director Priyadarshan, actors Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal — joining forces again. Ratan Jain’s De Dana Dan has an ensemble cast of 26 of the top leading comic actors of Bollywood. The film’s releasing on November 27 and promises to have people rolling in the aisles. For that the audience will have to wait for sometime but BT got to witness the funny side of Akki, Suniel and Paresh on the sets of the film itself.
At around 6.30 am on a November morning, these 40-plus men were horsing around like precocious school kids and using their finger tips to do some serious counting. “I’ve done 15,” said Paresh to which Suniel added, “I’ve done eight.” And when Akki said, “I’ve done just five,” Paresh and Suniel chorused, “Loser, we’ve beaten you hollow.” Wondering what they were counting? It’s the number of movies each of them has done with the National Award winning director Priyadarshan. Looking at the trio, Ratan Jain, said, “For most of the filmmakers of Bollywood, this is a dream team. The Hera Pheri combo is back to entertain after a gap of nine years. Of course, as a bonus, there is the hit jodi of Akshay and Katrina who have a magical romantic track in the film.” Jain is on a high because his banner Venus Productions has had a long-standing association with Priyadarshan — having produced Hungama, Hulchul, Garam Masala and now De Dana Dan. And Katrina, who has delivered some of her biggest hits with Akshay, like Welcome, Namastey London and Singh is Kinng, is also hopeful that their pairing will work this time around too.
David Dhawan explains the connotations of the letter ‘K’ in the title, Do Knot Disturb

The different spelling of the word ‘not’, in Do Knot Disturb has nothing to do with numerology, claims director David Dhawan. He says, “It also has nothing to do with any sort of fascination with the letter ‘K’. The ‘K’ before the ‘not’ indicates the knotty situations that Govinda, Ritesh Deshmukh, Sushmita Sen and Sohail Khan are in throughout the film. Their lives are entangled because of several confusing situations, which eventually do get sorted out, but that’s what the letter ‘K’ in the beginning of the word ‘not’ stands for in the film’s title.”

Do Knot Disturb is a laugh riot about a series of confusing incidents in the life of a rich businessman who wants to hide his extramarital affair with a supermodel. He bribes a waiter asking him to pretend to be the model’s boyfriend and that’s where the trouble of mistaken identities starts.

David says he isn’t attracted to numerology, save the  ‘No 1’ association. He says, “My fascination has always been with ‘No 1’ and it has worked wonders in many films like Biwi No 1, Coolie No 1, Shaadi No 1 and a few more.”

Wonder why he didn’t stick to ‘No 1’ in his forthcoming film if he believes in its power?
