Salman Khan, Jackie Chan, Kamal Haasan in epic film?
If it happens, it would be the dream cast to end all dream casts
Speculations are rife that Tamil film producer Aascar Ravichandran is looking to cast Salman Khan, Jackie Chan and Kamal Haasan in a Rs 400 crore mega film. If it ever gets off the ground, the film is likely to be a sequel to Chan’s 1986 smash hit Long xiong hu di that you and I know as Armour of God. Chan directed that film. He, of course, is no stranger to India as he appeared alongside Mallika Sherawat in The Myth and he was due to play the role that Tom Wu eventually played in RA.One, but Shahrukh Khan couldn’t afford his steep fee. If Chan ends up directing this film, he’ll have to put up with two other filmmakers on his sets as Kamal Haasan is a director in his own right, as well as a notorious ghost director in the league of Aamir Khan, and Sallu is supposedly unofficially co-directing the Dabangg sequel. Interestingly, Aascar used to call himself Oscar and his company’s logo was the renowned statuette. However, when Kamal-starrer Dasavathaaram released in a blaze of global publicity, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences took umbrage and he had to hastily change. No matter, he still laughed all the way to the bank, as he made the film for Rs 60 crore and collected nearly Rs 300 crore worldwide. Click here to read more

Shahrukh Khan’s Wankhede trouble refuses to die!
Just when we thought Shahrukh Khan had put his Wankhede Stadium controversy to rest after his team Kolkata Knight Riders won the Indian Premier League 5, newer troubles are coming to the fore. Now, lawyer-cum-activist Indrajeet Singh Bhatia has filed a private criminal complaint against SRK at a local court in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, for his alleged involvement in the fracas that occurred last month. Bhatia filed the case on Tuesday under section 200 of CrPc (examination of complainant) in the court of Judicial Magistrate (First Class) Sangeeta Tiwari. He has also levelled additional charges against him under sections 294 (obscene acts and songs), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) and 499 (defamation) of the Indian Penal Code. Admitting the complaint, the court posted the matter to July 9. This is not the first time a complaint has been registered against Shahrukh after he fought with the officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association on May 16. Immediately after the incident, the Mumbai Police had registered a complaint for a non-cognisable offence against Shahrukh and three others. And now Bhatia has drawn SRK into more legal tangles. We wonder how King Khan will react to this move.
