  • the reality

    srk not coming to iifa awards 2012,the reason is simple ,,,,,,,,,,,,,fear of the number 13 as it is the 13th iifa wards that will be hosted.i am sure even karan jhar,kajol,farha khan,sajid khan,ritesh deshmukh,genelia,morani brothers,sanjay kapoor,juhi chawla,boman irani possibly might also skip the iifa awards,as they are the popular srk suppoters. inspite of which srk keeps saying salman is making fun of his film ra one through twitter,blog,sms,,,,,,,,,,,,,you cannot deny that it was a flop.
