RA.ONE Music Launch

An Epic music launch – Ra.One is here to stay!

The Ra.One music launch is definitely one that is not going to be forgotten very soon by the industry and audiences alike. No doubt that the music of Ra.One has been one of the most highly-anticipated albums of the year, however the sheer scale of grandeur and enigmatic presence on the stage of the stars has left everyone’s jaws dropping.

Shah Rukh Khan was at his usual charming best as he joked and said, “Superman ko apna naam Karan Johar rakhna chahiye.”  He grooved with Kareena Kapoor, his female co-star in the movie, to the latest chartbuster from the movie Chammak Challo, and while Kareena did look stunning in a blood-red sari, all eyes were eagerly looking out for the well-kept secret that is the character of Ra.One, which is being portrayed by Arjun Rampal..And quite an entry it was!

Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan’s closest friend in the industry, launched the music album while the film has been dedicated by SRK to the late Yash Johar.

Though we faced an unexpected delay in the start the event,it was probably because of the rains affecting certain portions of the set, built in an open area. And later, live glimpses of the event were shown, as promised, on the official YouTube channel. If the glimpses didn’t quite please you, you must watch the entire event to be aired on national televisionvery soon… the funny SRK on-liners & the dance performances will definitely impress you. And national broadcasting means that not only the media, but also the entire fans base can become a part of the celebrations.

YouTube views and comments for the event were at an all-time high, and Ra.One’s official Twitter handle even amassed 300+ followers in a matter of 2 hours.

The official release of Ra.One’s music album has truly been the perfect gift for all at the end of this festive season.  It truly was worth the wait!


Check out the launch video on the official RA.ONE YouTube channel:

Bollywood stars hang out in London despite riots

Bollywood glitterati Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Ali Zafar, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma descended into London a few days ago. Unbeknownst to them, the city was in its most dangerous time in decades, when riots spread across the capital.

Shah Rukh, Ranbir and Anushka arrived on the 8th of  August 2011 to attend the logo and new identity  unveiling   of Hero Motocorp (formerly known as Hero Honda). The high-profile corporate event was also attended by Oscar award-winning music composer A.R Rahman, American singer Akon and former tennis player Boris Becker.

The event was held at The O2, London on Tuesday, the 9th of August 2011. All three actors rehearsed for their speeches and performances a day before on Monday. While Ranbir and Anushka took time out to do some shopping in the West End, Shah Rukh did not leave his residence except for his rehearsal.

Ranbir Kapoor posed with bikes, King Khan performed with Akon and gave a brilliant speech and Anushka performed with several dancers to entertain the audience at the event. After attending the event, Khan met up with good pal Priyanka Chopra, who was in the UK for a film shoot.

The 7 Khoon Maaf actress wrapped up her shoot for Teri Meri Kahani in Nottingham on the same day Khan, Kapoor and Sharma arrived in London. She immediately took off for London and was there for three days. A source close to the project has informed us that the remaining schedule of the film with Shahid Kapoor and upcoming actress Neha Sharma will be wrapped up on the 12th of August in the UK. The next schedule will be in Chandighar, India.

Another source has revealed that Priyanka and Shah Rukh had meetings with the owners of Cineyug, a concert and event management company while they were in London. They have apparently agreed to do a show here soon. It might be a promotional concert that Shah Rukh is planning for his upcoming sci-fi flick Ra.One, but details are being kept under the wrap at the moment. Priyanka has since left London and started the shooting of Burfee in India.

Actor and singer Ali Zafar, who made a sensational debut with Tere Bin Laden in Bollywood has been vacationing in London too for a couple of days.

I can assure you all, that all these actors are/were safe from the riots happening in the UK. I met Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra during their stay in London. Check out these pictures:
