Baby Jeh is six months old and his pix go viral

Mumbai– His alleged name was the target of trolling on Twitter some days back, but when Baby Jeh‘s proud mother, Kareena Kapoor Khan, shared his picture cradled in her arms in the Maldives, the serene blue sea overlooking them as he turned six months old, they elicited more than one million likes in a matter of minutes.

Kareena, whose “Pregnancy Bible” is just out, her husband Saif Ali Khan and their first son, Taimur, were holidaying along with Jeh in the Maldives. They returned to Mumbai on Sunday. And as they were leaving the airport, the paparazzi shot close-up pictures of Jeh being led away by the family help. The picture was at once splashed by the Kareena Kapoor Khan FC (fan community) on Twitter.

Earlier on Saturday, when Kareena put up her mother-and-child Instagram post, greeting them with emojis and lots of love were the Bollywood glitterati, from Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh to Manish Malhotra and Amrita Arora.

In her caption, Kareen wrote: “Love, happiness, and courage to you always. Happy 6 months my life.”

As the actress is always being scrutinised by the netizens, asked about how her family responded to that, Kiara said, “I ignore it (mean comments) as it does somewhere affect me. I want to have a normal day, and I don’t want to go into reading comments….we’re also humans. Sometimes I think, ‘oh my mom will read it, my father will read it and they don’t like it,’ and they do (read it).

“My parents hashtag Kiara Advani every day, they want to know what is been written about me, what my fans are saying about me…they enjoy it. I tell my mom to ignore it, but she tells me that she wants to know what is being said about me. So when you talk about culture, I believe that being respectful to one another is an important part of it. People should understand ‘ki yeh (actors) bhi insaan hai, inke bhi emotions hote hai’, they are sensitive, and there must be a reason behind it.”

Kiara was having a conversation with actor and talk-show host Arbaaz Khan for his digital show ‘Pinch By Arbaaz Khan Season 2’. The episode will be releasing this week on QuPlay’s YouTube Channel, on ZEE5 and on MyFM.

“It was in the making for quite some time and it had my complete focus. Abhay Aangre is a character with multiple shades and it was frankly very challenging to play it through the project with the same intensity. I loved the challenge and it was such a learning (experience),” Rithvik said.

He added: “I was sad when we wrapped up the shoot and we all waited for the release. The love and adulation of the audience is testament to the hard work and passion of the entire crew and cast. ‘Cartel’ is unmissable and I urge the audience to watch it. Be it the good, bad and ugly feedback but please give it a watch.”

Also starring Supriya Pathak, Tanuj Virwani, Pranati Rai Prakash, Divya Agarwal, Jitendra Joshi and others, ‘Cartel’ streams on ALTBalaji and MX Player Gold.

Nilu also remembers working on the film along with late actress Surekha Sikri who passed away on July 16. “I’m thankful to God that I got to share screen space with Surekhaji, that too in her last film. I remember, she was on the wheel chair, we were shooting a song sequence in the night and not once did she complain. We shot till 7 a.m. the next morning. I really got inspired by her spirit, enthusiasm, professionalism, acting abilities, and impeccable language control,” said Nilu, known for featuring in TV shows like ‘Naamkarann’ and ‘Jamai Raja’.

Vaani says upcoming films will solidify her position

Mumbai– Vaani Kapoor has two films lined up for release – ‘Shamshera’ and ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’. The actress hopes these movies position her correctly as a performer.

“I have an exciting year to look forward to actually! I have two big films ‘Shamshera’ and ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ that are ready to be released in theatres and I’m hoping they will entertain audiences thoroughly,” Vaani said.

She added: “These two films will also present me in completely different avatars and I can’t wait to see the reaction from people for my performances.”

The actress says she has put in her everything for ‘Shamshera’ and ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and hopes these two big films will showcase her as a performer who is willing to take risks to deliver powerful performances.

“I have worked tremendously hard in both these projects and I’m delighted about how they have shaped up. I have been choosy about the films that I select because I want to pick quality content over quantity and I’m proud of both ‘Shamshera’ and ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’,” Vaani said.

“They are films that will hopefully position me correctly as a performer who is looking to take the risks and push myself constantly to make a mark.” (IANS)
