Baadshah of Bollywood, heart throb on-screen but off-screen he is making news for all the wrong reasons lately. It is a known fact that Shahrukh co-owns one of the Indian Premier League franchise, Kolkata Knight Riders. Latest news is that he is to be banned by Mumbai Cricket Association(MCA) from entering the Wankhede Stadium for 5 years following a tiff he had with security and officials of MCA.
“Shahrukh misbehaved and abused the MCA security personnel as well as MCA officials, including our president Vilasrao Deshmukh, after the IPL match between KKR and Mumbai Indians. We have decided to ban him for life from entering the stadium in future. The MCA security personnel told them they can not do so as the match was over which led to Shahrukh abusing them as well as the MCA officials. There was manhandling too by his people. We have decided to ban him from all future matches at the stadium. We are also going to lodge a police complaint against him.” MCA treasurer Ravi Savant said.

After the match, MI’s 32 run defeat to KKR, Shahrukh and his bunch of bodyguards had gone up to the teams’ dressing room and then came down and started to go on to the ground, Savant said in an interview that he has given to a popular TV channel. In reply to a question, whether the MCA would lodge a complaint with the BCCI on his behaviour, Savant said “Of course we will lodge a complaint with the BCCI also”. He added that the issue had taken place in the presence of IPL CEO Sundar Raman and BCCI’s media manager Devendra Prabhudesai itself.
Reacting to this SRK spoke to the media and clearly denied he had misbehaved but said he was reacting to the unethical behavior of officials at the stadium. “I saw security guards manhandling the children and when I objected a group of officials came over and started to threaten me. I said a few things in anger. I was one and they were 20-25 officials and they were extremely rude. There was nothing illegal, I was not on the pitch”.
This controversy involving one of the prestigious franchise owners, Shahrukh has come a few days after the IPL T-20 tournament was rocked by a secret operation carried out by a private TV news channel in which five players were caught allegedly trying to indulge in match/spot fixing. The BCCI has appointed Ravi Sawani(its recently appointed Anti-Corruption in-charge) to probe the matter. The five accused players, meanwhile, have been suspended from taking part in any match until the matter is settled.

The buzz is getting bigger day by day. Ace director Shankar is all set to start his next film with Vikram, with whom he had delivered a stupendous hit like ‘Aparichithudu’. Shankar had already met Asin who had shown her interest to work in this project. Who would say no if Shankar gives a chance in his movie considering his unimitable track record. The film is said to be titled ‘Elections’ in Telugu and ‘Thendral’ in Tamil as the Tamil government does not allow for English titles. Sources say that this film is based on election commission and cash for votes.
Shankar’s all films were big budget extravaganzas. The Ace director is said to have zeroed in on a big producer who will not ask questions about budget. This combination of Shankar and Vikram will start rolling by the last quarter of the year if things goes well. Vikram has to complete ‘Thaandavam’ first and then he will join Shankar, who has already completed fixing locations.
The last time these two extra ordinary artists worked together they created a magic on-screen called ‘Aparichitudu’. Shankar projected the extra ordinary acting skills of Vikram in this film. But these days, his creations are not able to earn audience applause. His much hyped Rajinikanth starrer ‘ROBOT’ has created a history in Indian film industry not only technically but also commercially but was not up to the mark of the audience appreciation. His recent film, a remake of ’3 Idiots’ failed and it was mere below average flick both in Telugu and Tamil.
Now, Shankar is back to his genre of making films targeting social issues. His new script deals with the loopholes of Politics, this time. The title ‘Elections’ itself is in such a way that highlights the meaning of Indian Politics. With new talents coming up and making their mark in the Industry, Shankar has to concentrate on this film in order to sustain his numero uno position in this industry. Shankar had already ruled out possibilities of another remake post Nanban when the news of Vikram signing up under the director came as a pleasant one.
Noted authors Suresh and Bala who write with the nick-name ‘Suba’ would be penning the film’s script and dialogues. Composer AR Rahman who delivered the blockbuster hit Enthiran, confirmed his teaming up with Shankar early on. Rahman calls this year his comeback to Tamil movies as he has mega projects lined up, including Mani Ratnam’s ‘Kadal’ along with the Shankar’s film. Cinematographer PC Sriram will handle the cinematography wing for this political thriller.

Today, with the extraordinary changes in the gold prices, people are prone to get duped in their purchases. This always does not mean that it is the seller who cheats the customer. There is every chance of sellers also being cheated. This provides the necessity for knowing important information about purity of gold as well as how to assess purity of gold. There are many misconceptions regarding assessing the purity of gold. Some people are under the impression that purity of gold can be assessed by its luster or shade which is totally wrong.
FINANCIAL TIP: Why Is Investment In Gold Considered To Be Better Than Paper Currencies?
As it is a known fact, today gold is available in various shades. Other alloys have to be added to gold in appropriate proportions to convert it from a weak metal to a scratch free item. If the alloy which is added turns out to be in less proportion, there is every chance of the gold article to bend and be out of its shape as it would be very smooth. If the alloy which is added is in turn more in proportion, the metal loses its value. A karat is considered to determine the original mass of gold whereas it indicates the proportion of gold available in a particular item. 24 karat is the purest form of gold.
Generally, buyers just go by the words of the sellers and believe the purity of gold without trying to check out if the purity of gold is perfectly in sync with the word told by the sellers. This ignorance is making them lose money not only when they purchase a gold article but also when they want to trade it for another item after a period of time. When they prefer to exchange their old article to the new one they intend to purchase, the jewelers establish reason stating that the article does not confine to the standard of purity of gold. By saying this, the sellers reduce the amount to be paid. This way, buyers get cheated both while purchasing as well as selling an article. This situation makes it necessary for buyers to have a good knowledge about purity of gold and how to check purity of gold before purchasing an article.

Today, electronic testers are being used by business people who are out of reach for individuals due to their expensiveness. For the convenience of individuals, low-cost acid testers have come into the market and they enable individuals to check purity of gold for the product they intend to buy. Acid tests help to differentiate the impure things present in an ornament which in turn can help assess purity of gold. Even if in literal terms, one cannot go to the length of running acid tests themselves to check for purity of gold, this knowledge they possess will help them in not getting cheated. No jeweler can take a knowledgeable person for granted and dupe them with fake ornaments. Having a proper bill with detailed information about the product indicating the exact purity of gold should be taken from the jeweler to be on a safer side.
