Shah Rukh dismisses media reports about 'cold war' with Amitabh
Mumbai, Dec 5 (UNI) Bollywood hero Shah rukh Khan today scotched media reports of his spat with Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, saying that it was all baseless.
A section of the press had reported about the Bachchan-Shah Rukh cold war to which the actor said, ''Yes, even I have read this in the newspapers. We are grown up educated people and working professionals. In Hollywood, do you hear news like Tom Cruise bashing up Brad Pitt? Then why is such stuff carried by you here?'' Shah Rukh was at Hotel Lands End here to announce his comeback to television as a new 'avtaar' with the biggest game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'(KBC).
''I never left TV. The journey from 'Fauji', a serial on the small screen, to KBC is like a home-coming. This show will have a great emotional connection'' Shah Rukh said.
He said it was unfair to compare him with Amitabh as the latter's contribution to the world of entertainment is immense.
KBC will be aired in January next year from Monday to Thursday at 2100 hrs on Star Plus, Star Entertainment India CEO Sameer Nair said.
