Dharmendra had been admitted to a Khar hospital for dengue treatment; Sonam Kapoor wants people to relax and enjoy the little things.


Yesterday, Dharmendra took to social media to share the news that he is on the road to recovery. He wrote, "Friends, Lucknow gaya tha, achanak dengue naam ki besharam bimari ne aa ghera... ab zara aaram hai (sic)." The veteran actor had been admitted to a Khar hospital for treatment. Dharmendra, 83, further wrote, "Love you friends, I am hale and hearty with your good wishes (sic)."

Time to pause

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam K Ahuja has a word of advice for industry colleagues. She feels they should not restrict themselves to only acting and film parties. Instead, they should travel often, read books, spend time with friends and family to become the best version of themselves. Kapoor's known for putting her foot in the mouth, but this time, she is talking right.

A lost gem?

Bhagyaraj Amitabh

Respected Tamil director K Bhagyaraj has stirred a hornet's nest, alleging that an insecure Amitabh Bachchan shelved an almost completed movie co-starring Kamal Haasan in the 1980s. While Big B maintained radio silence all day, users quickly figured out that Bhagyaraj, who directed Bachchan in Aakhree Raasta (1986), was talking about a film called Khabardar, based on Richard Dreyfuss's Whose Life Is It Anyway? Kamal apparently played a paralysed artiste who wants to die, and Big B the doctor.

In style

Amy Jackson

Amy Jackson has been chronicling her motherhood diaries on Instagram. Yesterday, she shared a photograph with son, Andreas, and wrote, "Li'l cub (sic)." The 2.0 (2018) actor is sharing fitness tips for new mums as well as telling them how to be at their fashionable best when stepping out with their baby.

Salaam, Jacqueline


The winds of change are blowing in Saudi Arabia. Now, Jacqueline Fernandez finds her face adorning hoardings at airports in the kingdom. 


She is the first Bollywood actor to get visibility in the country. The actor, who shared the news on social media, appears on the hoardings with her head covered with a scarf, saying, "Hala KSA." Loosely translated, it means the aura of the kingdom.
