However, even an actor of his caliber tends to get a bit superstitious. Well, this aspect of Madhavan came to light when the shooting of Anand Rai’s movie Tanu Weds Manu was in progress.

According to reports, Madhavan is very gung ho about his entry scene in the Raj Kumar Hirani blockbuster 3 Idiots. In this movie Madhavan was shown giving up on his flight to New York and walking right into the Delhi airport, which was actually the Hyderabad airport in real life. This entry of him according to the actor was a very
lucky scene for him.

Thus, when the shooting for the Anand Rai movie Tanu weds Manu had to have him embarking from a flight from London to Delhi, Madhavan insisted that the shot to be taken at the Hyderabad airport, just as the 3 Idiots shot had been taken.

Now to comply with his superstition, the director and the producers take up additional costs to take the unit to the Hyderabad airport to shoot the sequence where Madhavan gets down at the airport and steps into Indian soil to hunt for a perfect bride for himself.

Well, seems like even Bollywood is not free from the surreal world of superstition!

Arjun Rampal: Shahrukh Khan’s Hard Work and Dedication is Quite an Inspiration

Arjun Rampal, the macho man of Bollywood is well known for his great work in movies like Om Shanti Om, Raajneeti and We Are Family.

This is one actor who has been appreciated for his negative roles as much as for his positive ones. However, now the actor is all set to appear in one of the most expensive Hindi movies ever made titled Ra.One, which is being made under Shahrukh Khan’s home production.

shahrukh khan and arjun rampal

Arjun Rampal who plays the bad guy in the movie had to sweat it out for an entire four to five months of rigorous training to get into the right look of the character he plays in the movie.

Ra.One, which is a science- fiction, has Shahrukh enacting the role of G.One in it and his hard work and dedication has been quite an inspiration for Arjun Rampal too. So much so that Arjun went on to publicly state that Shahrukh’s passion was contagious.

The hard work and dedication that he has gone in to make this movie is truly something which is worth appreciating.

Ra.One is full of action and thrill and reports are that the fight sequences between Arjun Rampal and SRK is something extremely fiery and dangerous and no stone has been left unturned to depict the enormity of the fights.

Arjun Rampal and Shahrukh Khan were great to watch in Om Shanti Om and with this movie getting bigger and better, the chemistry between the two honchos is something everyone is waiting to see.

A fresh poster of the movie is out with Shahrukh sporting the G.One look with blue eyes et al, this movie is certainly one of the most awaited this year.
