Shahrukh Khan’s Mannat saved by Supreme Court
The actor’s long fight for his bungalow finally comes to an end
Shahrukh Khan can breathe a sigh of relief. When he returns from London, he won’t have to start house hunting immediately. The Supreme Court today (March 20) dismissed the case which alleged that Shahrukh had violated several environmental and archaeological laws and coastal regulations while constructing his bungalow, Mannat. The bench said that it is not possible to pick just one person for such violations only because he is a celebrity.

Abhay Deol took Tamil lessons on ‘Shanghai’ sets
Punjab da puttar Abhay Deol is going south for a role. No, no, he is not venturing in any of the southern film industries. Abhay is playing the role of a Tamilian IAS officer in Dibakar Banerjee’s political thriller, Shanghai. And to get into the skin of the character, as he always does, the actor thought it would be a good idea to learn Tamil. Abhay had a tutor on location, and he made sure he perfected every Tamil line with the help of his teacher before he shot for a scene. Dibakar Banerjee can’t stop singing praises about how Abhay spoke Tamil and Hindi with a Tamil accent fluently. The actor’s character is apparently similar to (but not based on) former Supreme Court of India Justice Santosh Hedge and his work ethics.
