Colbert: Bollywood Feud, Part 2

(from The Colbert Report, January 18)
Stephen Colbert follows up on the celebrity feuds from the previous week, including the spat between Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Baachaan. (Includes a favorite Bollywood clip of Ronan's).

In the interest not getting our news entirely from Comedy Central, I tried to find via Google the actual details of the feud in question. However, though Google sources quite a few Indian media outlets, the fact that Colbert was giving this feud play on American television is bigger news than any actual feud.

In any case, the Bollywood news and gossip cycle has already moved on its next big item, the upcoming marriage of the Big B's son to sometimes co-star and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai.

From the article: '...Apparently, Abhishek's octogenarian grandmother Teji Bachchan is keen to see him married.'

"(Heavy sigh). OK, OK, Teji, I'll marry Miss World, but only for you."

This article didn't cover it, but a lot of the other tabloids are making a big deal about Ms. Rai being an unlucky match because she is older than Mr. Bachchan, a working professional loathe to give up her career, and most of all, astrologically she is apparently a disaster.
