Kareena Kapoor Khan is a truly hands-on mother who’s always rushing to spend some time with her son in between her hectic schedules. Time and again, she’d drop at Taimur’s playschool to pick him up. In a video that’s all over the internet, Kareena is seen sitting at her son’s playschool as the little one keeps playing around.
Nothing feels better than watching your kid having fun. As Taimur keeps running to and from his mother, we even see the two exchanging a jovial hi-5. Looks like Tim got a bit too mischievous at one point, and we saw Kareena rolling her eyes and warning him. We can also catch a glimpse of his sister Inaaya. Watch the video below!
Nearly three years old, Taimur is a social media sensation already. He, in fact, is a paparazzi-friendly kid who’d often wave to the cameras. In a recent interview, however, father Saif Ali Khan revealed that the kid recently learned to say ‘no pictures please’ and does not enjoy being photographed anymore!
Taimur might not be interested in being clicked, but it doesn’t look like the internet is going to get over him anytime soon…
Made in China, Dinesh Vijan’s next production venture releasing this Diwali, has gathered tremendous steam and thus developed some serious anticipation among audiences after the successful reception of the trailer and the three songs. Produced by Maddock Films in association with Jio Studios, Made in China is a celebration of the spirit of entrepreneurship and a never say die attitude via the story of a small time Gujarati businessman from Ahmedabad.
The film stars Rajkummar Rao as the leading man – Raghu Mehta. Playing the character of Raghu’s partner in his business venture – Sexologist Dr Vardhi, as prep for his role Boman and director Mikhil Musale met several professionals to understand nuances of the character. The most relevant material came from renowned sexologist and columnist Dr Mahinder Watsa.
Mikhil, who researched the subject and wrote the script of Made in China, says, “Dr Watsa was so honest, experienced and articulate. He’s been working in this field since the ’50s and his vast knowledge, whether clinical, psychological or societal was immensely helpful.”
The debutant director admits how surprised he and Boman were on learning about the kind of queries posed to the 96-year-old veteran sexologist. “Sex is a subject people are the most confused about. Even though there’s so much information available online and it is discussed widely on the internet, a lot of people continue to be misled by incorrect information. Boman and I were shocked to hear that people still ask things as bizarre as – if a man and woman masturbate together can lead to pregnancy? Some of the queries have even inspired a few instances and dialogues in our film. It’s surprising how inhibited we are about the subject of sex given that we are a country of 1.3 billion. That’s one of the reasons why we made this film. The issue needs to be addressed but in an entertaining yet sensitive manner” says Mikhil.
Produced by Maddock Films in association with Jio Cinemas, Made in China also stars Mouni Roy, Sumeet Vyas, Paresh Rawal and Gajraj Rao and is set to release this Diwali.
Here’s an addition to the array of extremely interesting characters Vidya Balan has played. In her next, she will be seen playing the late Shakuntala Devi, also known as the human computer. Blessed with the rare talent of flawless mental calculation, Shakuntala also found her name in Guinness Book of World Records. We’re sure Vidya is enjoying the character she is getting into. But would she ever be interested in playing a purely negative character?
In a recent interview, the actor revealed that she wasn’t up for watching dark stuff all the time. While she likes binge-watching it at the comfort of her home, she likes her movie-going experiences to be happy and positive. Hence, chances are that she’d indulge in playing a negative character if it was made for a platform.
Kahaani remains one of Vidya’s most-loved films ever. The sequel, although not as big a success as the first one, was well-received too. We’ve been hoping for a Kahaani 3 for a few years now, but is it happening? Vidya says she is frequently ‘threatened’ by director Sujoy Ghosh about it! However, Sujoy hasn’t written one yet as he is waiting for the right story, and just like all of us, Vidya is waiting too.
Shakuntala Devi, also starring Sanya Malhotra, is slated to release sometime in 2020.
We earlier told you that actor Kalki Koechlin is now five months into her first pregnancy with boyfriend Guy Hershberg. The revelation came a few weeks after Kalki confirmed her relationship with Guy, an Israeli artist. As she basks in the happiness of her upcoming motherhood, Kalki is well into her ‘mummy prep’ as well! She’s been learning to play lullabies on her ukulele.
The actor took to Instagram to share a photo of herself where she is seen sitting on a couch and probably trying to master her strokes. ‘Part of mummy prep during vanity van waits has been learning lullabies and folk songs from different parts of the world on my ukulele. If you know any beautiful (but not too complicated songs) in your mother tongue send me a youtube link here and I might try to ‘pick’ it up,’ she wrote.
Vidya Balan, Sanya Malhotra and the entire team of Shakuntala Devi kick-started their first schedule in an UK. After days of madness and a lot of fun, it is now time for them to return home! On Wednesday, they called it a wrap for their UK schedule. The next one is to take place in Mumbai.
Sanya took to Instagram to share a picture of the gang, everyone breaking out in a warm smile. ‘And it’s a wrap!! Looking forward to the next schedule,’ she wrote. Looks like a grand wrap-up party also took place! Check out the picture below.
While Vidya plays the titular role i.e. late Shakuntala Devi, Sanya will be seen essaying the character of her daughter, Anupama Banerji. Shakuntala, a mathematics wizard who was known as the world’s fastest ‘human computer’, passed away in 2013. Her ability to solve difficult equations and calculations in a second without the help of any device earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records too.
Filmmaker Anu Menon, who earlier helmed London, Paris New York and Waiting, is directing Shakuntala Devi. The film is slated to release in summer 2020.
