Aamir Khan honoured in US

TIMES NOW 2:24 mins

Check out the recent news from the world of Bollywood. Actor Sanjay Dutt's furlough in the 1993 Bombay blasts case ended on Oct 30. The actor was released for a fortnight on medical grounds and was later granted another fortnight's extension. Dutt was sentenced to five years in jail for illegal possession of arms. And, making India proud globally was Aamir Khan. Aamir has been honoured with a prestigious US award in recognition of his successful effort to create debate on India's pressing social problems through his popular TV show "Satyamev Jayate". And, this time it is the audiences who are going to feel the pinch. A rendezvous with 'Krrish' may cost them a small fortune. Apparently, the ticket prices of the third film of the franchise will cost more than SRK-starrer 'Chennai Express', which were sold at a whopping Rs 500. Bollywood stars are known to rake in big moolah from their various endorsement projects. And when both spouses come on board to lend their names to a brand, its double bonanza all the way. Sources say that a kitchenware brand that recently shot with Aiswharya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan paid the glitzy couple a mind-numbing Rs 30 crore. Salman Khan and Karan Johar, who have the same profile manager, have been bonding over the years. Taking their work equation ahead, one hears that Salman has committed to being a guest on Karan's show, which kicks off on Dec 1. Despite her cheery self at the recent unveiling of her upcoming film, Vidya Balan has not been keeping well. Sources say that Vids has been suffering from a bout of flu and is advised rest at home.
