Yashraj ditch SRK for Ranbir?

The media is abuzz with news that Aditya Chopra of Yashraj Films has decided to move on from someone, who is responsible for two of their only major successes (Chak De India and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi) in the last couple of years.

According to sources, Aditya Chopra didn’t take it too lightly when Shahrukh Khan couldn’t allot him bulk dates for one of their upcoming romantic films and has decided to move on and sign Ranbir Kapoor for the same role. (Could it be the same Yash Chopra directed film that we reported earlier today?)

Is it the right time for Yashraj to move on from SRK? We think so, here’s why

  • Unlike industries from down south, Bollywood is an industry wherein over-aged heroes fade away quite quickly post 45.. the thinking behind this move could be the fact that SRK can no longer run around tress or play Rahul – Raj kinda roles. He is way too old for typical Yashraj romantic films.
  • One other reason is, SRK isn’t affordable any more – most of his films in recent times have been produced under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment. In movies produced by other banners, he prefers to take a major share from the profit. Wouldn’t it be quite wise for Yashraj to rather invest in someone younger? The likes of Ranbir, Shahid or even Hrithik Roshan?

    [edit] Notes

  • shut up homosexual nauman you are the gay and pimp urself shahrukh is musqlim ,and allah- fearing you syou call him so because you are jealous of him so behave yourself
    indici_ne please block this nauman from hurting king khan and talking rubbish

  • I’m not a fan of any particular Actor or Actores. I see ones performance against roll in every film. I love Srk,Aamir,Salman,Akki and hirani,aditya,karan zohor for their deferent kind of skills. Anyways, bollywood related everyone know about karan Zohar’s gender and Bio-sex. Nature made him, What’s wrong on it? Friends, yes, i admitting Srk and Karan zohar has physical relation. Thats not meant Srk is a Gay. Even his wife Gauri know it. Actually, Srk just doing it in friendship and to be stabilish as a much powerfull Elite member in bollywood Elite camp. But Srk is a brilliant emotional Actor with smart intelligency. He makes lots of Power around him. Now he using and showing his power everywhere. K.zohar helping him to grow up more stronger. Because of Srk’s chain smoking and having less drug, as a Actor he looks older than his age. Aamir looks so younger because he strickly maintain him. Friends actors remarked by their looks and performation against roll. If a actor looking younger and nice in a college boy roll then why he shouldn’t do it in his 48 years of age? Friends, don’t use bad words for skilled actors to show your fan flowing crazyness. Everybody has his own hero, heroin and like dislike. Try to give respect for all. By bollywood business, Skills and Perfection my Rating is (1) Aamer khan. (2) Shahrukh Khan. (3) Akshay kapor. (4) Hritik Roshan. (5) Salman Khan.

  • SRK great in acting, actually great in real life acting too :-)
    I am fed up that he does not admit him being GAY with Karan, Arjun and co! Also, they all pick up young guys from Humsafar (homo club in Mumbai) and also they alongside with Manish, Mahesh & Sanjay Leela B supply young male newcomers to Politicians and Businessman …………. Now this is how SRK really makes extra cash ……………SHAMEFUL. Lost all respect for him as a person (YAAAAk).

    My Name Is Khan will hit the 70 crore nett mark by the end of its third week as it accumulated around 4 crore nett over its third weekend and the weekdays should give another 2 crore nett. After that the film could add another 2-3 crore nett.
    After three weeks the film has the 15th highest distributor share in the history of Hindi cinemas and is likely to enter the top ten at the end of its run.

    why people are crying that
    (2008-2009) amir number 1,
    (2007-2008) aksay number 1,
    (2000-2006) rittik number 1
    (1994-1999) salman number 1

    but SRK the true real king and number 1, 1992 – 2010……. still going and going.

    every one know that billu & dulha milga was a guest appearance for (king of the world) srk.
    but many bed people feel jelous for mnik verdict.

    so dont mind we all are love movies and we should respect every actor.
