They swear an undying love for him, and gratitude for his help and all say they can contact him if they are in need of anything. However, unlike Aamir and Shah Rukh, Salman has never been married, nor is he really a playboy? Is Salman Khan gay?

Chicago Cubs Rumors: Cubs Pursuing Jason Heyward in MLB Free Agency to Play Center Field

New Cubs CF Adds Spark to Cubs/Cards Rivalry >>

The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals have a long and sometimes bitter rivalry that extends almost to the beginning of baseball. That rivalry intensified in last season's playoffs when the upstart Cubs knocked the Cardinals out of the playoffs in five games. The Cardinals posted the best record in baseball and were odds on favorites to win the World Series before they knocked off by the Cubs. To stoke the fire further, the Cubs lured two of the Cardinals free agents away in the offseason, one of them Jason Heyward, whose comments will no doubt add to the fire that is the Cubs/Cards rivalry.

Shah Rukh Khan

SRK and 'Diolwale' Win Weekend Box Office >>

It was probably kind of silly to think that Shah Rukh Khan's newest film would not be a major hit. Khan didn't become the King of Bollywood by making flops. This weekend, though, SRK found himself with a bit of a challenge on his hand. Deepika Padukone, herself on a major roll of late at the box office had a film of her own coming, the critically acclaimed Bajirao Mastani.

Deepika Padukone,

SRK's Film KOs Deepika's'Bajirao Mastani' >>

Miles Davis

Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Louis Armstrong and the Search for Self >>

A lot of jazz aficinados even find John Coltrane hard to listen to. His volcanic torrent of notes, pushing hard to escape from his saxophone, can overwhelm even the most liberal minded of listeners. This upheavel was Coltrane's attempt to purge his soul and gain a synesthesia with his subconscious. Miles Davis turmoil was also present on the very surface of his music, skimming off the top, exposing raw nerve. Unlike Coltrane, Davis was calculating about what he was exposing in his search. He was careful, guarded and mistrustful. Louis Armstrong completes the triangle. No outward agenda, at least musically speaking, Armstrong was the shaman. Only if you were paying attention did you see his self, the abandoned orphan looking for a mother figure through musical expression.

Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan

Who Will Take Weekend Box Office? SRK or Dippy? >>

Let the battle begin. This weekend will see the release of two heavyweight pictures. Shah Rukh Khan's newest film Dilwale and Deepika Padukone's Bajirao Mastani. This will truly be a battle of the titans. SRK is box office gold in everything and Deepika has been lighting up the screen recently with her string of films Piku and Tamasha. It will be very difficult to bet against Deepika with Bajirao Mastani.

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut to Break Her No Khan Rule >>

Kangana Ranaut has a no Khan rule. She has built her fame never having ridden on the coattails of a Khan and would prefer to keep it that way. It is claim very few Bollywood actresses on the whole can claim. Deepika, Katrina, Kareena, Anoushka have all appeared opposite a Khan. So far, Kangana has managed to hold out. But that may all change.

Deepika Padukone

Javier Baez Trade Rumors

Rays in for Javier Baez? >>

The Tampa Bay Rays and the Chicago Cubs have quite a history together. There was the Matt Garza trade a few years back, where the Cubs added Garza and sent soon to be Rays ace Chris Archer, among others, to Tampa. Then, there was that whole Joe Maddon thing. Joe Maddon had an opt out clause in his contract and decided to use it at the end of the 2014 season. Cubs' free agent signing Ben Zobrist became a star in Tampa Bay. Now, the Rays and Cubs have been talking trade and Javier Baez's name has, apparently, been smack dab in the middle.

Walter White

SRK to Play Walter White? >>

Bollywood Life is reporting that icon Shah Rukh Khan is very serious about bringing the hit American TV show Breaking Bad to the shores of India in the form of a movie, with SRK taking the role of Walter White. Imagine it, SRK doing an entire song and dance routine in a meth lab. Surreal, right? If anyone in Bollywoodland can do it and get away with such a risky topic, for Bollywood, at least, it is Shah Rukh Khan.
