Bollywood glitterati Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Ali Zafar, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma descended into London a few days ago. Unbeknownst to them, the city was in its most dangerous time in decades, when riots spread across the capital. We have some news on what they have been up to while in London!
Shah Rukh, Ranbir and Anushka arrived on the 8th of August 2011 to attend the logo and new identity unveiling of Hero Motocorp (formerly known as Hero Honda). All three actors attended rehearsals for the event, to prepare for the show the next day. While Ranbir and Anushka took time out to do some shopping in the West End, Shah Rukh did not leave his residence except for his rehearsal.
Held at The O2, London on Tuesday, the 9th of August 2011, the high profile corporate event was also attended by Oscar award winning music composer A.R Rahman, American singer Akon and former tennis player Boris Becker. A R Rahman performed the new theme song Hum Main Hai Hero, and the show also featured a performance by Anushka.
Also in town is Priyanka Chopra, who was in the UK shooting for Kunal Kohli’s Teri Meri Kahani. The 7 Khoon Maaf actress wrapped up her shoot for the film in Nottingham on the same day Khan, Kapoor and Sharma arrived in London. She immediately took off for London and was there for three days. A source close to the project has informed us that the remaining schedule of the film with Shahid Kapoor and upcoming actress Neha Sharma will be wrapped up on the 12th of August in the UK. The next schedule will be in Chandighar, India.
Another source has revealed that Priyanka and Shah Rukh had meetings with the owners of Cineyug, a concert and event management company while they were in London. They have apparently agreed to do a show here soon. It might be a promotional concert that Shah Rukh is planning for his upcoming sci-fi flick Ra.One, but details are being kept under the wrap at the moment. Priyanka has since left London and started the shooting of Burfee in India.
Actor and singer Ali Zafar, who made a sensational debut with Tere Bin Laden in Bollywood has been vacationing in London too for a couple of days. The actor is now getting in gear for his next release Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.
We can assure that all these actors are safe from the riots happening in the UK and hope they stay so.
