Bachchan, Shah Rukh ‘feud’ on Comedy Central

If being ribbed about on late night comedy shows is one of the most telling indicators of popular acceptance of any foreign culture within the US, then Bollywood has just made an important debut.

The Jan 9 episode of the hugely popular The Colbert Report on Comedy Central featured a piece of gossip involving Amitach Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. In the new segment called ‘We the Mediator’ which jests about celebrity feuds and takes sides, the show’s host Stephen Colbert deadpanned the gossip about the alleged feud between Bachchan and Khan over new year celebrations.

Apparently, according to the gossip, Bachchan stayed away from Khan’s new year do which was attended by among others Salman Khan, Vivek Oberoi, Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta. The very idea of a mainstream American comic going through a list of unpronounceable Indian names (by American standards), had inherent humour to it.
