Looks like stars are taking blogging too seriously. After Amitabh Bachchan's blog created a controversy with his remarks on veteran actor and MP Shatrughan Sinha, the latest actor to catch eyeballs is actor Aamir Khan, who talks about his pet dog Shahrukh and how he was named in his latest blogpost (http://www.aamirkhan.com/blog.htm).
The blog entry seems to be made yesterday when Aamir Khan was in Panchgani with his family on a vacation. But what's worth noticing is the way Aamir starts his blog piece. He says,"Shahrukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for?"
The star then goes on to talk about the dog and how he had no hand in naming him. In Aamir's own words: "Now, before you jump to any conclusions let me add that Shahrukh is the name of our dog. And before you jump to any further conclusions let me add that I had nothing to do with naming him. In fact Shahrukh is the dog of the caretakers of our house. When I bought this house it came with the caretakers and their dog! Apparently Shahrukh (the actor) was shooting for a commercial in this house a few years ago, and that very day the caretakers bought a pup…, and named him Shahrukh. What are the chances of me buying a house which comes with a dog called Shahrukh!!! "
He further goes on to say in the end of his blogpost: "Well Shahrukh is once again begging for my attention, so let me get back to him. He is smelling too much, I think he needs a bath. "Heel boy, heel."
This is not the first time that Aamir has taken a shot at actor Shahrukh Khan. A few months back the actor had made headline with his quote ""I would like to ask Shahrukh how it feels to be No 2."
What one waits to see is the reaction of King Khan when he comes to know of this. Watch this space for more!!!
