Shah Rukh Khan Latest News- Shah Rukh Khan’s latest Flick Jab Tak hai Jaan’s film Poster and theatrical trailer was released in the past week. However there have been reports of Plagiarism against the track of the films and the poster. The track composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman is said to have a distinct similarity to that of Gustavo Santaolalla's work in The Motorcycle Diaries  and the poster of the film is said to have a distinct similarity to that of Forces Speciales a  French movie the allegation seems to be not that well grounded as the format and style of the poster has been used as a popular style in different movies.  While the poster allegation seems to be not well founded the Accusation about the title track can only be concluded once the sound track is officially released. However allegations like these have been on the rise especially in recent time. While some have been quick to point out that is genuine case one can also help but think that this is an attack on SRK that has been a part and parcel of his recent box office outings.

Shah Rukh Social networking- Shah Rukh  has been active on social  networking sites and has always been the first to express his opinion. Simplistic and to the point SRK has refrained from making any controversial statements that includes digs at popular frenemies or speaking hi hearth out about any issue of due importance.

ShahRukh Khan has created a niche for himself through his performances. The most decorated celebrity in the industry he has been subject to controversies and problems, but his heart and dedication to entertain in various characters is worth appreciating. Despite the fact that his performances at time have dwarfed or heightened his stature at the box office he is certainly not subjected but continues to strive forward.
