Is Shahrukh Khan having an affair with Priyanka Chopra?
After being loyal to his wife for 20 years, Shahrukh Khan is reportedly seeing his Don 2 co-star Priyanka Chopra and they are quite an itemShahrukh Khan has always maintained a very ‘loyal to my wife’ image in tinseltown, even as he romanced so many beauties on the big screen. Seeing pictures of Gauri and SRK in film and fashion magazines only added to the aura of their ‘sacred’ marital relationship. The only leading ladies he was rumoured to have had a ‘thing’ with are his fave co-stars Juhi Chawla and Kajol. The gossip seemed obvious, since he had some of the most successful films of his career with them. Apart from that, it was Deepa Sahi in Maya Memsaab whom he got intimate with in order to show great chemistry in that famous sex scene. Otherwise, King Khan’s image has been the cleanest amongst the Khans, especially where extra-marital goings-on have been in focus. But it seems that now, after fathering two lovely kids and doting on Gauri for a couple of decades, Shahrukh is going through a mid-life crisis. (Or a mid-wife crisis, shall we say?) These days, showbiz parties and gatherings are not complete without people talking about the torrid affair SRK is allegedly having with his Don 2 co-star, hottie Priyanka Chopra.

Rauf Ahmed, former editor of magazines like Filmfare, Zee Premiere, Screen, etc, was one of the photographer’s closest associates and among the first to recognise his talent. Rauf says, “When I took over as the editor of Filmfare in 1986, it was a very old-fashioned magazine and I revived it. Gautam had a very important role in this. He brought in a pictorial quality very rare in film magazines. Earlier, there was more focus to show the person’s achievement rather than how the picture was.” Click here to read more
B-town’s top-league item girls
Just a few years ago, doing an ‘item number’ in a film meant that ‘you are not big enough to play the lead’. Remember Rakhi Sawant, Eesha Koppikhar, Sophie Choudry, Rajalakshmi and countless others? But tables turned very soon; Urmila Matondkar did a Chamma Chamma, Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai did an Ishq Kameena to pep up Shakti, Aishwarya again swung her hips seductively in the famous Kajra re number from Bunty Aur Babli, Sushmita Sen danced sinuously in Mehboob mere from Fiza, Bipasha lit up male dreams in Beedi jalaile in Omkara, Shilpa Shetty wowed them all with a Dilwalon ke dil ka karaar lootne… in Shool and so many more. And now the big-time girls of B-town have begun to think that doing an item song will help reinstate their power at the box office better and faster than doing serious, mature roles could. We look at some established female actors who are willing to shake a leg, and some who have already done so…
