Arjun Kapoor’s Aurangzeb – a welter of inspirations?
Cineswami reveals what could possibly be the films that Yash Raj Films’ latest movie is based upon
Picture this. A dreaded crime lord runs an empire of illegal businesses. The police have no evidence against him. One of the crime lord’s flashier minions has a lookalike. The cops abduct the minion and the lookalike substituted in his place. Sounds eerily similar to what you’ve seen in the just released trailer for Yash Raj Films’ Aurangzeb? You’re right of course, but like success, Aurangzeb has many parents. Click here to read more

Shahrukh Khan to go international with the ‘Mahabharata’?
The King Khan dreams of making it big as Karna, the warrior prince from the epic tale of love and valour. But is he fighting a losing battle trying to capture the story for the big screen?
What’s Shahrukh Khan’s favourite name these days? (Hint: It’s not Katrina Kaif or Priyanka Chopra!). Well, it is Karna, the character from the Mahabharata. We recently woke up to the news of Baadshah Khan planning a trilogy on the epic. Looks likes Shahrukh is addicted to SFX these days and taking the Mahabharata to the next level, techwise, is riding high on his priority list these days. So are we happy about this? After Ra.One and Don 2, we’re not sure. “I think it would be fantastic, the world’s greatest film. It would be Mahabharata made like Lord of the Rings – a triology. The world would come to see it. The inherent story is one of the most interesting in the world. There are amazing superheroes, 20 times better than X-Men – gods of sun and wind who can make fire at will. There are monsters, ghosts…it’s really awesome,” SRK says, sounding gung-ho about it.
