Shah Rukh Khan is going to score another grand point. Madame Tussauds London will give the superstar’s wax statue a complete makeover. Shah Rukh’s wax version will be made to look like his psycho fan character from his upcoming thriller Fan. The figure will be made to dress like Gaurav and will also be re-chiseled to match his framework. That’s not all! This statue will move out of the museum premises and be placed near the London Eye, as a tourist attraction.

Bhaijaan is taking his cupid role rather seriously these days. Salman Khan was earlier reported to have been playing the part of an active mediator between his brother Arbaaz Khan and his wife Malaika Arora Khan during the couple’s ongoing rough patch. We now hear that after Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli wrapped up their recent ‘patch up’ dinner date, they headed over to Salman’s Bandra residence. Maybe the Sultan co-star has taken it upon himself to try and bridge the gap between the cricketer and his Sultan co-star. Rumour mills might be buzzing with the theory of bhai’s involvement in Virat and Anushka’s love life but only time will tell if his advice really worked or not.

4. “Selfies are Like Autographs Today,” Says Arjun Kapoor

Arjun Kapoor is on cloud nine after all the praise he’s been getting for Ki & Ka. The actor is quite active on social media and seems to be a selfie junkie. Arjun believes selfies are new age autographs,

Selfies are like autographs today. I always say that one selfie with a fan means you have sold a ticket. Because that moment is going to be on his/her mind forever. They hold that memory close and when you behave odd, then people have a bad idea about you. Therefore, I love taking selfies, as much as I can.
Arjun Kapoor, Actor

Every selfie with a fan is a ticket sold, that’s what Arjun Kapoor believes.

Actor Akshay Kumar was detained by the immigration authorities at London’s Heathrow airport for over an hour. Why? Believe it or not, the actor seemed to have been flying without a valid visa. Wait, what? The actor reportedly arrived in London for the filming of his upcoming film Rustom, without a visa stamp for the UK. He was made to wait in a common area with other passengers and was refused access to a private waiting area.

Canadian nationals like the actor can visit the UK without a tourist visa, for that purpose alone. It is reported that the airport authorities found discrepancies in his case since the purpose of his visit was work and not leisure.
