SRK, Kajol ring the NASDAQ bell


Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol have created history, by becoming the first Indian stars to ring the NADAQ bell. NASDAQ is the world’s biggest stock exchange.


Shah Rukh seemed to be so excited that his Twitter status stated, “NASDAQ will be fun. Have to make sure I reach on time, otherwise will end up being blamed for economic up heavel across the world too..ha ha.”

This is the first time that Indian stars were invited to ring the opening bell for the exchange as an act of promotion for their upcoming film My Name Is Khan.

According to a NASDAQ spokesman, SRK and Kajol rang the bell on behalf of Fox Searchlight Pictures, which is distributing the film in the US market.

The Karan Johar directed film, which releases on February 12, will see the most sought after onscreen pair in Bollywood re-unite after eight years. Shot across much of the United States, My Name Is Khan will also have a star-studded premiere at the 60th annual Berlin International Film Festival during the week of its release.

With over 3,700 companies listed, the NASDAQ has more trading volume than any other stock market in the world.

Khan and Kajol have starred together in many successful films over the years including Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai which are both modern classics in Hindi cinema.

AVATAR.. (highest grossing movie ever)


Avatar Dethrones Titanic As Highest Grossing Movie Ever

After months of claiming the top spot at the box office week after week, James Cameron’s animated film Avatar has officially become the highest grossing movie of all time. With over $1.8 billion in ticket sales in just 39 days, the film has outshined the previous leader, Titanic, also a Jame Cameron film.

The next step for Avatar is to top Titanic’s domestic revenue record – $600.8 million, and Avatar is well on its way with $555 million in domestic revenue already. There is also a lot of buzz about possible Oscar nominations for the film, which could put Avatar in a place that no film has gone before – $2 billion in worldwide profit.

Do you think they’ll make it? Anyone reading this who HASN’T seen Avatar yet? Will you buy the DVD or do you think this is a theatre-only film because of the 3D animation?
