ZINDA FROM BHARAT: SALMAN KHAN'S LATEST TRACK IS A MIX OF ROMANCE AND ACTION
The release of Salman Khan’s Bharat is less than a month away and in order to bring alive, you’ll get that reference in the next few seconds, in order to bring alive their promotional campaign for the movie, the makers have released its fourth song - Zinda! Zinda is basically a combination of all the other songs of the film, sprinkled with moments of romance and action. And interestingly, Ali Abbas Zafar, you know, the director of the film, has also made his debut as a lyricist and a composer with this song. Well, will you look at all that talent oozing out of the man? Director and now music composer and lyricist too. Not bad for a day’s work, or more appropriately a movie’s work. Apparently, the song was originally a poem written by him while scripting the film, and it was composed keeping Vishal Dadlani’s voice in mind since it’s powerful and grungy. You can either watch the music video on In.com or Youtube or wait for the movie to release on June 5th and catch it there.
SHAH RUKH KHAN APPEARS ON MY NEXT GUEST NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION, SHARES PICTURE WITH DAVID LETTERMAN
Shah Rukh Khan has certainly attained superstardom in India as well as a lot of other places where people know about him. And now it looks like his reach is just going to increase after he appeared as a guest on Netflix talk show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. The episode with SRK was shot on May 16th in New York. Oh, and there was a live audience present too. The famous Khan took to Twitter after to share a picture of him with Letterman. Letterman, who’s grown his beard out nicely looks quite like Santa Claus, with that paternal, kind smile and the twinkle in his eye. Shah Rukh, on the other hand, looks like one of his elves who’s just been given an employee of the month status and a new suit to go with. And being Indian, he’d probably be the elf that does Santa’s taxes. Hence the employee of the month award. Cos you know how important taxes are. Wouldn’t want the tax man visiting the North Pole. That would be a recipe for disaster. In his post on Twitter, Shah Rukh Khan joked about how Letterman is The Abominable Snowman, and how he comes before Batman and Spiderman. Careful Shah Rukh or Letterman will put you on his bad boy list this year and you won’t get any presents.

Unfortunately, looks like that wasn’t meant to be. Rest in Peace Ashley Massaro!
