Shahid Kapoor to receive Dadasaheb Phalke Award for 'Padmaavat'

Talking about his character, Shahid said, “I don’t think that I underplayed Maharawal Ratan Singh, I would say I played Maharawal Ratan Singh. This is the character that was meant to be subtle. Nobody overplayed or nobody underplayed – it was our characters and we did our job according to the briefs we were given.”

Honestly, it’s not the most author-backed role in the film. So taking up such a role and getting appreciations for that, is an amazing moment,” he added.(Also Check: Shahid Kapoor’s special lessons for daughter Misha Kapoor)

These pictures of Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Taimur will make you miss your family vacay

Nawab Saif Ali Khan and his begum Kareena Kapoor Khan with their cutie-pie Taimur were in London recently until Bebo had to fly back to honour her work commitments. The actress was back in India as she had to perform at the grand finale ofFemina Miss India 2018. We came across some pictures of this Khan family from their London sojourn and one particular photograph has caught everyone’s attention.


In the said picture Saif Ali Khan is seen holding Baby Taimur in his arms while wifey Kareena is leaning on his shoulders by a riverside. This picture is so cute that it will literally make you go Aww..and we guess that the Khan family might frame this picture and save it forever.

You can check out that lovely picture from their London vacation below:

Though the couple flew off to London to spend some quality time with Taimur away from the media glare, even there the couple is being hounded by paparazzi and unruly fans who went crazy after spotting them with Taimur.

We came across few pictures where the family is being followed everywhere even though they are not interested in being clicked. Apparently, Saif even asked the fans to kindly spare his family and let them enjoy their vacation.

Ever since his birth Taimur has become an internet sensation. Though neither of his parents are on any social media platforms, Taimur has several dedicated fan pages that follow all his moves religiously, so much so that even in London fans are dying to capture Taimur in their phones.

How we wish people were sensitive enough to let the celebs be on their family vacation at least.

EXCLUSIVE: Not Kriti Sanon, Shraddha Kapoor will romance Kartik Aaryan in Dinesh Vijan's next

EXCLUSIVE: Not Kriti Sanon, Shraddha Kapoor will romance Kartik Aaryan in Dinesh Vijan's next

EXCLUSIVE: Dinesh Vijan is putting together another big project. After the commercial failure of ‘Raabta’, many actors are wary of teaming up with Vijan now. But the filmmaker is producing a film, which will be directed by Laxman Utekar.


Cashing in on the blockbuster run of ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’, Dinesh has got Kartik Aaryan on board. The rom-com will have Kartik playing the male lead. Speculations were rife that Kriti Sanon was all set to romance Kartik in the film, but we hear from someone close to the actress that she has not even been offered the film.

Instead, Dinesh has roped in another Gen-Y Heroine to star in his production venture. According to our exclusive sources, it will be Shraddha Kapoor who will be seen as Kartik’s love interest in the film. Dinesh and Shraddha have teamed up for ‘Stree’ which releases this year but in the horror comedy, the actress doesn’t have a full fledged role.

K thanks bye 👋

In the Laxman Utekar directorial, Shraddha’s role is as important as Kartik’s and this will be another fresh pairing for the folks. (Also Read: Shraddha Kapoor’s ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ to not lock horns with ‘Stree’ at the box office?)

Also, it was during the release Kartik’s ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2,’ that he had expressed his desire to work with Shraddha in the future. So this is a dream come true for the actor.

Casting coup, anyone?
