He has several films in his kitty that have joined the Rs.100-crore club and thanks to them, Salman Khan’s films are perceived as high-yielding projects. But his feet are on the ground and he knows how to handle success, the star says.
Salman’s “Dabangg”, “Bodyguard”, “Ready” “Ek Tha Tiger”, and “Dabangg 2? grossed more than Rs.100 crore at the box office and now producers are making high-stake investments in the star, who says: “I am so used to it (success) by now that I know exactly how I need to take it.”
“I know this is all superficial… I know this is my profession and my work and I get paid for it. But apart from that, it does not go into my head. It’s like a nine-to-five job,” Salman told IANS in an interview.
Mumbai, Jan 7 (IANS) After “Blue”, director Anthony D’Souza is making “Naam Hai Boss”, and says that the second schedule of the film will start in February.
Starring Akshay Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty and Aditi Rao Hydari, among others, the first schedule was canned in Delhi last year.

First Look of Shahrukh Khan starrer Chennai Express has released and as usual, there have been whispers and murmurs around the campaign. One of the most striking things about the poster design is the fact that it reads ‘A Rohit Shetty film’, which has set the tongues wagging.
“Since Shahrukh Khan is much bigger than Rohit Shetty, it was expected that the First Look would actually highlight his name instead of the director. However, with seven back to back hits behind him, Rohit is a brand himself. However, detractors have their own way of looking at things and it is hardly surprising if they are trying to find some gossip out of something as harmless as a poster design”, says a film enthusiast.
While the thought is indeed agreeable and it is rather surprising that something like this is being looked at with a microscope lens, a bigger picture emerges if one digs down the archives. Reason being that Shahrukh has time and again being more than happy to allow a director take the limelight, regardless of whether he/she is big or small.
“One quick look at the archives proves that”, informs an insider, “Farah Khan was a rank newcomer when she made Main Hoon Naa. Still, Shahrukh didn’t bat an eyelid and instead had the film’s poster scream ‘A Film by Farah Khan’. Later even for her second film Om Shanti Om, the credits went as ‘A Farah Khan film’.”
Hi friends. Starting from today, I have decided to bring this daily post titled “Timeless Melodies” wherein I will share some classic movie songs from bollywood.
The first song is Rim Jhim Gire Saawan from the 1979 movie Manzil, directed by Basu Chatterjee and starring Amitabh Bachchan and Moushumi Chatterjee. This particular song has been sung by the evergreen Kishore Kumar. R.D.Burman composed the song and Yogesh wrote the lyrics. Even Lata Mangeshkar has sung a female version of this song but, personally speaking, I prefer Kishore Kumar’s version.
