Bollywood and Politics Collide in a Red-Carpet Standoff

Article in today's Times. My Name is Khan also opens in MTL today at the AMC.

And in a creepy 'Life imitates Art' incident, Shahrukh Khan was arrested at Newark this summer (this is the aforementionned movie's plot). WTF? Read about it here. I've been a BIG fan of King Khan ever since Devdas (read my glowing 2002 nano-review here, and me drooling over a Shahrukh cameo here), so how I missed this particular tidbit of American as(s)ininity I'll never know.

I think someone needs to go and get herself a new Google Alert.

Broadway Revamped from 26th to 31st

In today's Times.
I'm not sure how I feel about this - I love that stretch of Broadway precisely because of the Canal St./Anything goes/Haggle-me-silly feel of it. It seems to me that it was one of the last places in Manhattan devoid of Starbucks and BlackBerrys. Give it a couple of years and it'll start to look & feel as generic as the rest of the city... Shame.
