Shahrukh Khan attempts to sabotage rival Salman’s film Jaanemann party
The war of the Khan’s has just heated up even more. Everyone knows Shahrukh’s film Don will be releasing on the same day as Salman starrer Jaanemann.html> Jaanemann on 20 October. Now the Khan’s take their unspoken rivalry a step further. According to sources Shahrukh has deliberately kept the bash for the launch of a book “SRK-Still Reading Khan” on the same day as Jaanemann producer’s bash. Both the events are slated to be held simultaneously on 11 October. Incidentally super star Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday is also on 11 October. While both the bashes will be held at different five star locations, the parties will actually be a test to decide whose side some of bollywood’s biggest stars are on.
Sajid Nadiadwala the producer of Jaanemann is hosting a party to celebrate UFO Films 500th digital film-Jaanemann. Sajid had planned this lavish celebration about two months back and invitations have gone out to many high profile VIP’s as well as bollywood celebrities. But producer Sajid and his stars Salman and Akshay are extremely upset with Shahrukh’s deliberate attempt to hold the launch of his book release on the same day as their event. A slightly irritated Sajid clarifies when his party was planned “UFO Movies had planned this event two months ago. I usually never throw parties, but yes we have a huge guest list.” Some of the high profile celebrities for Sajid’s bash include Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and other ministers. From bollywood invites include Bipasha Basu, Kareena Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Suniel Shetty, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Pehlaj Nihalani and others.
However Shahrukh Khan seems to have his own set of plans for the big day October 11, the launch of the book “SRK-Still Reading Khan” by writer Mushtak Sheikh which was planned just a week back. However the author of the book Sheikh says “We couldn’t find a five-star hotel on any other day. It’s absolute rubbish that Shahrukh is deliberately hosting the event on the same day. People are forgetting that I am the author and I chose the date.” Sheikh also claims that this was the only available date for a five star hotel or else the book launch would have to be pushed back to February which was far too late. However he does confirm that only after confirming with Shahrukh that he was available for the date only then did he give the hotel an okay.
Another interesting fact is that Shahrukh’s good friend Farah Khan whose film ‘Om Shanti Om’ he will be seen in next will be stuck in a rut as her husband Shirish Kunder is the debutant director of the film Jaanemann. However Farah claims that she has intentions of doing her duties to her husband as well as good friend Shahrukh by attending both the events. Unfortunately Farah’s brother Sajid seems to be stuck in a bigger dilemma as he is supposed to compere both the events and both sides are his friends. Considering both the events are scheduled for the same time in the evening how Sajid plans to solve the problem remains to be seen.
Incidentally Amitabh Bachchan who celebrates his birthday on the same day will not be having any grand celebrations due to his mother’s illness and hospitalization.
