Even with two CCTV camera's right over d baggage, police or airline still wont confirm.. ...If it was 'stolen' or 'misplaced'. For some reason they, r just refusing to confirm via their CCTV. The reason they won't go over d CCTV footage is tht there is nothing recorded on it.Sadly, sumthing like tis has happened during d festival,' she tweeted.

It's official. A R Rahman will be composing music for Yash Chopra for the first time. The film will star Shah Rukh Khan.
'I am very excited to work with Yashji and I am humbled by his faith in me for his film. I have seen that Yashji always portrays music as the inevitable essence of love and divinity in his movies. I hope, as a team, we can bring tremendous joy to all,' Rahman posted on his twitter page.
Yash Chopra replied: 'I am starting work on the music of my, as yet, untitled film with the very talented Rahman. Apart from the great honour that he has consistently brought to our country, he is also someone that has created some outstanding and memorable music, something which is very important and dear to me and my films. I am looking forward to creating some wonderful music combining Rahman's contemporary world music sensibilities and my old world sensibilities of lilting melodies.'
There will be two leading ladies in the film.
"Everyone knows that when I make a movie, Shahrukh will be involved with it. He is like family to YRF and I have always regarded him as one of my own. There will be two leading ladies in my film.
