Shahrukh Khan has made his resolution for the year 2009. Its not about smoking or anything to do with his war with the other Khans. King Khan’s New Year resolution for 2009 is that he would not make guest appearances in movies. His short guest appearances or item songs has always been lucky for many directors and many such films have fared well at the box office. But Shahrukh Khan seems to have learnt from Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan who never does any guest appearances in movies (because he believes in giving his 100% whenever he is a part of any movie). Aamir Khan only does the lead role in movies and does his best to act it to perfection. It is heard that he refused to do special appearance for SRK’s Om Shanti Om. After Ghajini beat RNBDJ in the box office, Shahrukh also seems to be following the same trend. Shahrukh has worked in guest appearances, short roles or items songs in many movies including Achanak, Army, M F Husain’s Gaja Gamini, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega, Samar Khan’s Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye, Saathiya, Boney Kapoor’s Shakti — The Power, Silsilay, Alag, Karan Johar’s Kaal, Sajjid Nadiadwala’s Heyy Baby, Rakesh Roshan’s Krazy 4 and Ravi Chopra’s Bhootnath. But he believes that he is featured in the movie’s publicity in such films which raises the expectations of his fans (who are expecting significant role of him but find only a special appearance in the movie). So, he has decided to go the Aamir Khan way and stop making special appearance in movies. However it is quite ironical because he always request other Bollywood actors and actresses to do special appearance in his movies. A very good example of the same is Om Shanti Om where he brought the whole industry together for a song and in his upcoming home production Billu Barber too he has requested item numbers from Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone. Hope he would also make a resolution to not make any special appearances of other Bollywood stars in his home production.
Miss World 2008 runner up Parvathy Omanakuttan is from Kerela and she has made us proud by bringing the Miss World runner up title this year to India. The South Indian beauty was also debated by some as the worthy for the Miss World crown but she could make it only to the runner up. Though she is not the winner but Miss World crown (though runner up) came to India after a gap of a few years. She is also setting her eyes on Bollywood after the success of previous Miss World from India like Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra in the industry. Here are some photos of her at an event recently.
