Hrithik Roshan

Soon after he wowed fans with his athletic prowess in Fighter, Hrithik Roshan had social media users worried when he shared a picture of himself on crutches. Roshan, who spoke of incidents from his life that made him reflect on the meaning of strength, revealed that he had suffered a muscle pull. Recollecting how his grandfather had once refused to sit on a wheelchair despite suffering an injury, he wrote, "It wouldn't align with his mental image of himself as ‘strong'. It made me so sad to see how strong he needed to be just to hide the fear and embarrassment on the inside. It worsened his pain and delayed the healing. There definitely is merit in that kind of conditioning, it's a virtue. But, I believe true strength is being relaxed, composed and fully aware that nothing, not crutches, not a wheelchair, not any inability or vulnerability - can lessen or alter [one's] image."

All about the money

Emraan Hashmi, who plays a producer in his upcoming web series, Showtime, spoke to filmmaker Karan Johar at the show's trailer launch and revealed what he dislikes about producers. Hashmi shared that he doesn't align with the thought process of a producer whose single-point focus is the return on investment, and not producing quality content. "Some producers are purely driven by the commerce in films, and I think that's a bit of a thing that doesn't align with my thinking, because they look at a film only as a proposal, and people, who work in the film, as commodities. I'm a creative person. I'm driven by emotions and passion in cinema. Any producer, who is passionate is one I align with," he shared.

Social media patch-up?

Sisters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor took to social media to sort out their sibling skirmish. The reconciliation happened over the comments section, when Khushi posted a slew of pictures on Instagram while getting her makeup done. In the comments section, Janhvi apologised to her sister. "I miss you. I'm sorry I fought with you. I love you. You're the best ever, my laddoo (sic)." To which, Khushi replied: "Miss you. I'm sorry."

Best work on home turf?

In a free-wheeling conversation during the World Government Summit (WGS), Shah Rukh Khan spoke of why he hasn't been seen in Hollywood projects. Sharing that he had never been offered a substantive role by either Hollywood or the British film industry, Khan said, "I've said this honestly, but nobody believes it. Nobody's ever offered me any work, a crossover of substance. I've had conversations with lots of lovely people from the West, from the English film industry, from the American film industry, but nobody's offered me any good work."

Friends in need

Parth Samthaan has opened up on his bond with the Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan co-star Niti Taylor, sharing that there their friendly competition has undergone an evolution over the years. "In season one, we used to compete with each other to perform well, there was a lot of friendly competition. If one did a scene well, then the other should do better. But we have evolved, and now help each other to do better. I think right now, whatever phase we are in as co-actors, it's perhaps as compared to the previous seasons the best."

A touching tale of love

In a heart-warming Valentine's Day post, Sanjay Dutt's sister Priya - daughter of Sunil and Nargis Dutt - took to Instagram to share a story she claims shaped her life. Talking about how her parents found love in each other, she shared, "As a little girl, when I peeped into the world of love, [it] was through the extraordinary connection shared by my parents. Their love wasn't just a story; it was the very essence of who they were to me. Their story felt like it was taken out from the pages of a fairy tale, where a small-town boy was enchanted by the charm of a movie star; a match unforeseen yet destined by fate. Even today, their love story resonates with everyone who hears it. It speaks of my father's devotion, especially in my mother's lowest moments, and her illness. They respected each other through every trial and turbulence. They loved fiercely and lived wholeheartedly, embracing each other's flaws and strengths."

Kangana khush hui! Par kyun?

Rather renowned for her tendency to throw shade at her contemporaries, Kangana Ranaut took fans by surprise when she heaped praise on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a rather rationed post. "Appreciation post for Aish's divine beauty," wrote Ranaut while sharing an image of Bachchan from her 1999 film, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. A sweet post, indeed, but social media users were unable to comprehend the reason behind her generosity. While some suggested she wanted to "mend ways with people" before the release of her next film, others hoped she "stayed away" from Bachchan.
