World concerts of Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan

Reports are that 'rivals' Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan are planning their world concerts around the same time.

After the Ash-Abhishek engagement was announced, many directors and producers decided to sign the couple as a package pair for their films. A prominent entertainment company also signed all three Bachchans, Amitabh, Abhishek and Ash for stage shows across various countries. However the grand Bachchan stage shows have been postponed to mid 2008 due to all the stars' prior commitments.

But now it seems the Bachchans have competition from none other than SRK and his team who are also planning a concert in different countries in April 2008.

The Bachchan world concert titled One Amazing Night was planned for this year, but unfortunately due to the Ash-Abhishek wedding and all the members' prior commitments, the concert had to be pushed back to next year.

Bachchan tour will be headed for the US, Europe and Middle East.

SRK has also done world concerts earlier and Temptations was one of his most successful shows and now the actor along with some other high profile stars will attempt another concert titled Temptations.

The SRK world concert will be organized by the Morani Brothers and in all likelihood will include Rani Mukherji and Preity Zinta. Organiser Kareem Morani states "We are still working on the tour and Shahrukh is the only confirmed actor for this 40 day tour."

Morani also confirms that the Temptations concert was to be held this year but SRK postponed it to April 2008. The SRK concert is headed for the US, UK and Canada.

Well so it's the Bachchan world concert versus the SRK world concert as both will be taking place around the same time. It will be quite a treat to see which team gets a better response!
