Imran on what sets SRK, Aamir and Salman apart

Bollywood celebrity  Imran Khan, who entered Hindi filmdom just three years ago, says he loves the three big Khans of Bollywood - Salman, Aamir and Shah Rukh - for their different qualities that set them apart.

What has always inspired me about Shah Rukh is the level of energy that he has. Whenever you see him, he is so energetic. That is very attractive to see. You don't want to take your eyes off such a person. Imran told.

With Aamir (who is his uncle) what I have always admired and have been jealous of is his ability to figure out what is the pulse of the audience. He can read a story, he can watch a film and he will know what will work. It is uncanny how he does that, how he knows it.'

Salman's charisma is beyond anything that any star has had before because with Salman, people ask no questions. They know it?s a Salman film and they will come, not even bothered about what the film is all about, he added.

Imran is quite right - despite not-so-encouraging reviews, Salman's just released 'Bodyguard' has got an overwhelming response at the box office.

Katrina Kaif Slaps Jay Soni

Jay Soni who is better known as Eshaan Kashyap in Sasural Genda Phool got the shock of his life. Jay Soni (host of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa) was in for a rude shock when celebrity guest Katrina Kaif slapped him hard across his face.

Katrina was accompanied by her co-actors Imran Khan and Ali Zafar on a reality show featuring kids to promote her upcoming flick. A rather starstruck Jay had his eyes set on 

her from the moment she came in and did not miss out on any opportunity to flirt with her and also take digs at her not-so-fluent Hindi.

At one point on stage, Jay went down on his knees and proposed to her saying "Will you marry me Kats?" That's when the actress gave him one tight slap. The host was too stunned to move while everybody on the sets burst into peals of laughter.

Amitabh Bachchan's KBC 5 Modified

The fifth season of Sony TV’s Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is all set to be aired on television soon. With every new season, KBC comes up with something new or alters certain rules of the show.

KBC is one of the earliest game show in India to be launched on such a large platform and garner tremendous audience support. This season of the show, hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, aims to expand their reach to smaller cities.

Holding true to their aim, the channel has even changed the time slot of the show from 9 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. slot. "The objective of the time slot is to expand the reach of both the channel and the show. The idea is here to get larger audiences from the smaller towns," said N.P. Singh, COO Multi Screen Media.

The show which goes on air on August 15th has brought about modification and fresh development in the format. The top prize this time around is Rs. 5 crore and the show this year follows a new philosophy “Koi insaan chhota nahi hota” (Don't underestimate anyone). Until last year, there were two safe havens; one at Rs 10,000 and the other at Rs 3,20,000. If the contestant reaches that stage, he or she would take home at least that much money. However, in the new season the contestants would be allowed to choose their own safe havens in the money tree. However, the four lifelines remain the same Audience Poll, Ask an Expert, Phone a Friend and Double Dip.

The show, usually runs for 14 weeks, and will have special themes and special episodes. Actors Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone have already shot for an episode.
