Is It An Open Challenge? Salman claims he is better than SRK

Is It An Open Challenge? Salman claims he is better than SRK

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan believes he is a better singer in comparison to his contemporary Shah Rukh Khan.

At a promotional event of of Salman's upcoming home production 'Hero', singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who has sung 'Yadaan Teriyaan', was asked this question and chose a safe reply. When asked who has better music sensibility -- Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan as he has collaborated with both of them, Rahat said, "I have heard only Salman Khan's song. I am yet to hear Shah Rukh Khan's song. Salman bhai can sing himself."

Salman, 49, interrupted the singer to say, "No chance ... it's a losing battle. Don't listen. He (Shah Rukh Khan) will raise my hand (in victory)."

The actor-producer said they wanted an established singer for the movie and chose Amaal Malik.

"I felt, why not take Amaal... He has the tune, he has composed the song (title song) well and he also sings well. If Himesh Reshamiya and Sajid Wajid can sing. His uncle (Anu Malik) also sings then why not him? He should get a chance," said Salman.

The 'Kick' star was all praise for another singer Palak Muchhal.

"Palak also sings well... She has an incredible voice.

She sang for 'Ek Tha Tiger'.. I make sure that she has something in my all films. If the song does well then new singers get chance ... it depends on tune," he said. "An idiot like me sung well ... I don't know sur (tune), beat but the song is getting so many hits. I used to repeat what the singers would sing and then sing," he added.

Salman has sung another version of the film's title song.

Directed by Nikhil Advani, "Hero" will mark the debut of Sooraj Pancholi, son of Aditya Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, the daughter of Sunil Shetty.

The film, a remake of Subhash Ghai-directed 1983 film of the same name will hit the screens on September 11.

Before the event began, the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan' star asked everyone in the audience to observe one minute silence in the memory of music composer Aadesh Shrivastava, who recently passed away due to cancer.

Hit-And-Run-Case: Finally a good news for Salman

Hit-And-Run-Case: Finally a good news for Salman

The Supreme Court on Monday declined a petition seeking cancellation of bail of Bollywood actor Salman Khan who was convicted and sentenced in a hit-and-run case.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu while declining the plea by one Sishilabai Himmat Rao Patil - the mother of Mumbai policeman and former PSO of Salman Khan Ravindra Himmatrao Patil - permitted her to withdraw her petition.

When her counsel M.L. Sharma urged the court to permit the petitioner to go to high court to raise the issues, the court said it was not stopping him from any course of action.

Sishilabai Himmat Rao Patil had moved the court seeking to be impleaded as a party in the hearing of the appeal by Salman Khan by Bombay High Court challenging his conviction and sentencing by the trial court coupled with the cancellation of bail and enhancement of sentence.

The petitioner's mother said her son Ravinder Himmsatrao Patil has contended that he was seated along with Salman Khan when the incident took place on the intervening night of 27/28 September 2002.

Ravindra Himmatrao Patil has alleged that Salman Khan, who was driving the car, was drunk when the incident took place.

The petitioner had challenged the Bombay High Court order granting bail to Salman.

Salman was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on the very day he was convicted and sentenced by the sessions court.

On May 6, Khan was found guilty in the September 28, 2002 hit and run case and sentenced to five years' jail for various charges, including 'culpable homicide not amounting to murder'.

One person was killed and four injured when the actor's car ran over them while they were sleeping on a pavement.
