Shahrukh Khan, Juhi Chawla to own Indian Racing League’s Mumbai team
Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar might pick a small stake in the League, called the i1 Super Series
Not satisfied with investing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the team of Shahrukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Jai Mehta are planning to buy a US$20m racing team in the newly launched Indian Racing League. The contract will be for 15 years. Called the i1 Super Series, the league is promoted by the Machdar Motorsports company. The first series will be held from January 8-February 26, 2012. And in April, it will be IPL time. We wonder why Shahrukh Khan is consciously devoting a quarter of his year and his money to activities other than films. SRK’s Kolkata Knight Riders hasn’t performed that well in the IPL, and now he is investing in a racing team, still a niche sport in India with less infrastructure and drivers. Looks like the RA.One star is planning for his retirement! Click here to read more
Deepika Padukone’s fixation with white!
The actor has been spotted wearing virgin white dresses pretty often these days!
The sexy babe seems to be in love with this colour lately. Just a month ago at the GQ Men of the year awards she was spotted in a pretty sheath dress with a side slit and she chose to glamorise her look with red lipstick. Recently, at the Formula One event where a bevy of beauties were sashaying around in gorgeous blacks and royal blues, the leggy babe chose this subtle colour and teamed up her ensemble with a pretty clutch. Deeps seems to be so smitten by this bright whiteness that she was yet again spotted in a pretty knee length embroidered dress in that shade at the airport while she was returning from the F1 event. She paired it up with cool kolhapuris and a taupe colored bag. Well, no doubt Ms Padukone looks awesome in whatever she wears, but we think the actor is trying to convey something here. White being a symbol of peace, maybe she’s asking the ever-intrusive media to take a cue or two from this style statement of hers… Click here to read more

Bollywood makes its presence felt at F1 after-party
Unlike day one, the second day of F1 after-party hosted by actor Arjun Rampal saw a number of Bollywood celebrities making their presence felt. Preity Zinta, Fardeen Khan, Sudhir Mishra and Nikhil Advani were among the guests, who flew down to the capital to add zeal to the party. Southern superstar Venkatesh was also present. While Preity, Fardeen and Nikhil chose to go for all-black look, Sudhir stuck to his signature style with jeans and a jacket. Sussanne Roshan was spotted on the second day as well, however, after going green on the previous day, she chose for an all-black outfit this time. Nikhil, completely soaked in the F1 spirit, said he is eagerly looking forward for the performance of international pop icon Lady Gaga. “I am really looking forward to the performance of Lady Gaga. I am sure it will be a rocking show,” said Nikhil, who has made films like Kal Ho Naa Ho and Patiala House. While filmmaker Sudhir was all excited about F1, he seemed disinterested when asked about Gaga’s performance. “I like the rush of the game, I like the sport a lot. Although I didn’t see the qualifiers today but before coming here I visited the track, it is amazing and I have heard that it’s the fastest track ever made,” said Sudhir, who calls himself a fan of F1 champ and Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel. “I am not a big fan of Gaga, so I can’t really say much what the performance would be like,” he added.
