SRK starts the Jai Ho party. Dances by himself, twirls with Waheedaji, then does Big B's signature move with him. Everybody loves it. The audience is on their feet, whistling, clapping and dancing along.

Suhel Seth: We live in very troubled times. We don't have a government

SRK: You deserve it Suhel, you deserve it.

Shah Rukh Khan: Rs 100 crore club is just a compartmentalization, a nomenclature. The true dreamers dream of Rs 1000 crores, of how to grow Indian cinema.

SRK's true story: When you go to Egypt, everyone will only call you Amitabh Bachchan. I was shooting for the song 'Suraj Hua Madhdham' there and they kept calling me Amitabh Bachchan. I tried to explain that Amitabh Bachchan wasn't in the song. But they kept calling me Amitabh Bachchan. And when Kajol arrived, they called her Amitabh Bachchan as well.

Funny moment: Saying the name of Ang Lee's film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon trips SRK up.

And he does Mr Bachchan's voice as well. Thank you Shah Rukh, says Big B

Amitabh Bachchan: I think we are always going to be different. I think what Shah Rukh was saying was that we need to blend western sensibilities into our cinema a little more. He and Karan Johar are largely responsible for bringing Bollywood to the global stage.

Jai Ho is loved more by the west than by Indians: AR Rahman

A King-sized Namaste. SRK makes up for being late
Dec 14, 2013
16:01 (IST)
Shah Rukh Khan: If you want to be on global stage, you have to tell stories the way the world is used to. Saying our emotions are louder we need three hours wont work. If we are going to their party, we have to dress the way they want.


Dec 14, 2013
15:59 (IST)
Shah Rukh Khan: I think you need the star system because so much of media and cinema is personality-driven. So it's a good thing that India has a star system but we lack in collaboration. In Hollywood, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson can collaborate for Tintin, we must do the same and put our best foot forward.
Dec 14, 2013
15:57 (IST)
Big B: And our main speaker is here. I think he should be asked all these questions

SRK runs up on stage to cheers, claps and whistles; touches the feet of the panelists and gets to business: I think globalization of Indian cinema should start with actors coming on time.

The King is here, make way for the King.

Damn you Delhi traffic

Mr B is making sure we're not missing SRK: Fortunately I've gone beyond the stage of pelvic thrusts. You can't accuse me of that any more.

The audience is loving it.

Mrs Bachchan says she's happy with what the panel are saying. Mr Bachchan says he's going to quiz her when they get home.

Yay, goes the audience.

Jaya Bachchan (in the audience): I think India has had music at every occasion and now also we have music and dance at all times, they've just modernized it
Dec 14, 2013
15:46 (IST)
Amitabh Bachchan: We were laughed at for our songs and dances. But to our credit, we haven't changed. And now the songs and dances are what the world like the most. So they have changed.

Amitabh Bachchan: When I started work, the only lady on the set was the leading lady and perhaps her mother. But now, 80% of the people on set are women and they do all the work
Dec 14, 2013
15:41 (IST)
Amitabh Bachchan: We don't always degrade women in our films. Waheedaji, my wife Jaya, Meena Kumari, Nutan have all starred in films that portray strong women.
Dec 14, 2013
15:41 (IST)
Amitabh Bachchan: Our profession is one which delivers poetic justice in three hours. You wont get this in a single lifetime. So we make sure that in a film the heroine is rescued and the villain punished.
Dec 14, 2013
15:38 (IST)
Amitabh Bachchan: Do you remember the last Indian who spoke at the United Nations? But you would remember the Sholay dialogue. And the Deewar dialogue. So if we are important enough for our dialogues to be remembered, why can't we be important enough to represent India on official platforms?  

The audience laughs and nods.

Waheeda Rehman: Coming from a Muslim family and from down South, my parents allowed me to learn Bharatnatyam and dance on stage. When I was offered films, I was very scared but they said "no, things are changing."

The session begins, SRK-less. But no matter. There are three icons on stage already

Mr B gets the ball rolling: Cinema used to be considered infra-dig in society. When I was growing up, my parents had to vet a film before I was allowed to watch it. But look how we've progressed - today, we are sitting on a panel discussing cinema.
