Sharukh Khan slapping Shirish Kunder, husband of almost two decade old SRK’s friend Farah Khan has literally gone viral. There is no doubt about the fact that SRK did give a tight-one on Shirish’s cheek but am not sure wether he was provoked to slap Kunder or not. I was amazed by the report that even Sanjay Dutt gave a tight-one to Shirish Kunder because Kunder had been sending lewd messgaes to Manyata. If that is true why the hell was Shirish Kunder on Sanjay Dutt’s guestlist? Would you invite the person who sends dirty messages to your wife to your party??? I won’t!
Anyways I feel SRK shouldn’t have gone ‘physical’. Stardom is a double-edged sword and a wee-bit Tweet shouldn’t have ruffled Badshah Khan to that extent that he gets physical with Shirish Kunder. SRK’s humility was one of the most loved aspect of him but sorry to say – lately I see SRK losing that humility and showing his ugly arrogant side. His constant jabs on Salman Khan, his tiff with Juhi Chawla for totally ignoring her comatose brother – Bobby, one of the brains behind Ra-One while promoting the movie, his jibes on critics who didn’t have good things to write about Ra-One, his temper flaring everytime a scribe asked him on his relation with Priyanka Chopra and his tiff (though temporary) with Mehr Jessia Rampal because she complained about Arjun Rampal not getting his due credit for Ra-One. It is like if you utter a word against SRK and you face his wrath. This is not how a superstar behaves.
And i wonder why the ‘slapgate’ happened in the loo area. I am sure you know what I am hinting at. Was it the surge of dopamine post the visit to the ‘Powder Room’ that made SRK slap Shirish Kunder??? Shahrukh Khan we loved your humble approach and it is one of the prime factors that has made you King Khan or whatever you love to call yourself. Take criticism in your strides and that is what is expected out of superstars.
Folks sorry for the delay in coming out with the LISTS. I was waiting to get the names tabulated from the huge number of recommendations that I received from the readers. The LIST is compiled based on the responses I received from the readers so as to eliminate any bias.
First of all let me define a ‘Henpecked Husband’. A typical Henpecked Husband is the poor guy; he squirms under the thumb of a domineering wife, very likely a Grande Dame. Her word is law, and he can only obey, with a meek and humble, “Yes, dear.” We laugh at his misfortune, and maybe pity him a little. So based on this definition who are the Top Henpecked Husbands of 2011?
Robbie Mohan is married to Tanisha Mohan, who is a walking-talking billboard of Luxury Brands. Tanisha definitely wears the pants in the Mohan household and we have often seen Robbie meekly surrendering to his wife’s demands. It is a common sight at Page 3 parties where you can find Robbie holding on to Tanisha’s designer bag and her drink as she floats around schmoozing the crowd. High time Robbie takes things in his hands and stop being enslaved by his better-half.
Amit Burman who runs a chain of succesful restaurants and also is the scion of the Dabur Group is in total control when it comes to running his vast business empire. At home Amit plays the second fiddle to his demanding wife, Divya Burman.
The names topping from Mumbai are that of Adi Godrej and Shahrukh Khan.
Adi Godrej of Godrej Industries may be the boss-man at his office but back home it is his wife , Parmeshwar Godrej who calls the shots. I still couldn’t get over the image of Adi holding on to the umbrella and Parmeshwar’s clutch as they walked in to the premier of Robot when it was pouring cats and dogs. From the readers I have learnt that Pam’s word is law at the Godrej household and poor Adi has to fall in the line to whatever Parmeshwar decides.
Most readers of this Blog claim that Shahrukh Khan is the most henpecked husband in the history of India. Gauri wears the pants and pockets all the money that SRK rakes in. In an interview SRK said that Gauri loves to buy things and if anything gets “used” at all she marches out an buys another expensive item right away and tosses the old one, and does this many times daily. No wonder SRK is always in a rush to make money and more money and probably that’ s the reason why he dances at weddings. Even with the Priyanka Chopra episode, Gauri gave an utlimatum to Shahrukh to stay away from her. In fact Gauri had the last laugh by inviting Priyanka to the Diwali bash and then ensuring nobody talked to her. Poor SRK was just a meek audience to all this tamasha.
The other close contenders to the Top Henpecked Husbands of 2011 were Sanjay and Shalini Passi, Arjun Rampal and Raj Kundra. I am sure you don’t need explanations for them! Sanjay Passi has no qualms of Shalini being linked up with other men. Mehr Jessia Rampal almost ruined Arjun Rampal’s friendship with SRK by openly voicing her discontent on how Arjun’s role in Ra-One was chopped by Shahrukh Khan. About Raj Kundra, well Shilpa Shetty will soon make Raj go bankrupt.
Yes it is confirmed now that Pop Diva and Fashion Muse Lady Gaga is coming to India and performing on the final day of the Formula 1 Racing at the Buddh International Circuit on the 30th of October 2011. JPSI, the constructors and promoters of the Buddh International Circuit and LAP, together announced the creation of an extravagant lounge at the Jaypee Greens Golf & Spa Resort, Greater Noida.
LAP will create a stunning air – conditioned, uber luxurious and decadent set with 22 foot high ceilings yielding surprises at the Jaypee Resort where all the parties will be hosted during the 3-day F1 Circuit in India from 28th to 30th October 2011. At a Press Con Arjun Rampal, AD Singh & Sameer Gaur revealed that the Pop Diva Lady Gaga would be performing at the LAP Buddh Circuit after parties. International DJ Roger Sanchez will perform on Day 1 of the festivities followed by Edward Maya on Day 2 and on the last day Tom Novy will perform before Lady Gaga takes to the stage.
The Formula 1 Racing fever is gripping Delhi-ites or rather the whole nation and Lady Gaga’s performance is definitely going to make it a must see affair. The tickets are rather expensive but I guess it’s worth it. Somebody told me that the Car Parking Fees are a s high as 800 bucks a day. Well I am definitely going to be there to smell the burning rubber on the asphalt, let the eardrums rattle with the roaring engines and lech at the Pit-Girls. And yes of course party at LAP with the glitterati!
Shahrukh Khan may be one of the biggest star of this country but does that make him above the law of the land? Well at least Shah Rukh Khan and his buddy Arjun Rampal think so or why else SRK openly smoke at LAP, the nightclub in Delhi where smoking is not allowed like any other clubs and restaurant.
Smoking at ‘No Smoking’ areas seem to be the habit of King Khan. He has been caught smoking at stadiums at fashion shows and now here you see him smoking at the console of LAP, the nightclub owned by his friend Arjun Rampal. Rampal being the owner of the Club should be aware of the law but he too gives a blind eye to SRK’s law-breaking act. If it was somebody else, I am sure Rampal would have asked his security to throw the guy out. But then SRK is his step to fame…
Not done at all Mr. Shah Rukh Khan. Being a star with millions of fans following you, smoking at a No Smoking place is absolutely not done!
Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are in Delhi to be part of the wedding celebration in Passi family. Saturday night Sanjay and Shalini Passi hosted a dinner do and SRK, Gauri and their ‘compulsory baggage’ – Arjun and Mehr Rampal were there. ShahRukh wanted absolute media blackout at this dinner.
I feel bad for Sanjay and Shalini Passi as they love to be on Page3. In fact the Passi couple used to send Rs.25,000 to every Page3 photographer in Delhi on Diwali till few years back. Then I wrote about it in a newspaper and the 25K Diwali Bonanza to shutterbugs stopped. I still get an earful from them. And when it comes to flaunting their friendship with SRK and Gauri, they tactically leak the private pictures to tabloids once SRK leaves. It happened few years back when Passis sent the private pictures to Delhi Times the moment SRK boarded his flight.
But last night Shalini and Sanjay’s phones went unanswered. They didn’t dare to risk offending SRK by sneaking in paparazzi. Imagine their predicament while observing King Khan’s media blackout???
