• Bollywood star Salman Khan gets 5 years in prison for hit-and-run

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar MUMBAI (Reuters) - A court sentenced Bollywood film star Salman Khan on Wednesday to five years in prison for killing a man in a hit-and-run accident, the latest twist in the tumultuous career of one of the country's biggest box-office draws. The district criminal court's order drove down shares of firms connected to the actor and, if upheld, will derail major projects in the pipeline of what is the world's most prolific movie industry. The criminal court convicted Khan, 49, of culpable homicide on charges that he lost control of his white Toyota Landcruiser when driving under the influence of alcohol in 2002, and rammed into a group of people sleeping on a pavement.

  • Sucking it, licking it: Raj Kundra scolds SRK for 'disgusting' ad on Twitter - Firstpost

    New Frooti Life's new ad seems to assume that Toy Story-like characters prancing around a giant mango will bowl kids over and make them harangue their parents to buy them the mango drink . It has a mango playing Gulliver to tiny GI Joe like humans, one slightly resembling Shah Rukh Khan. The humans try to push the mango, tie it to a car, make an elephant pull it, hit it, but the mango is immovable and unfazed -- sort of like Baba Ramdev. This is when GI Joe SRK comes to the rescue and chants the ill-tempered mango world's version of 'Khulja Sim Sim', as in the immortal words: "Aam suck it'a, lick it'a".

A large chunk of the credit for their fourth win in a row ought to go to Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu, who raised a 60-run stand to resurrect the innings after Daredevils had made a competitive, if not imposing, 152. When Rohit was bowled by Amit Mishra's wrong one for 46 off 37 balls, Mumbai still needed 53 off 28 balls.
