Akshay Kumar, the one and only khiladi of B-town, turned 49 today and shared a picture from his beachy holiday on his big day. The actor tweeted an adorable photograph with his daughter Nitara, beach bummin’ with her. It’s giving us some serious holiday goals. The actor also recently confessed that baby-sitting his kids gives him maximum joy.

Rumour has it that besties Karan Johar and Kajol might be having a bit of a cold war. As we already know, Kajol always makes it a point to be a part of Karan’s films, as a lucky charm guest appearance if not the main lead. But according to rumours, we hear that their frindship boat has hit the rocks after Ajay Devgn accusing KJo of paying to get bad reviews for Shivaay.

With Karan’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ajay Devgn‘s Shivaay releasing on the same day, it looks like Kajol may have to pick sides this time. She even tweeted in shock after Ajay Devgn’s accusations.

We hope the duo can come to a reasonable conclusion, so that their ritual lives on after all his films - Kal Ho Na Ho; Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and Student Of The Year.

3. The New Befikre Song Has More Couples Kissing

There is no such thing as too much kissing. Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, who will be seen in Aditya Chopra’s next film Befikre, might have had a bit too many though, and so in the new song from the film, they’ve handed over the job to Parisians. The film is set to hit theatres on 9 December this year. So far we’ve seen several posters of the on-screen couple kissing across Paris. But Labon Ka Karobaar has a bit of a twist.

Not only does this song, NOT have Ranveer or Vaani in the video, but it just also doesn’t give out any hints about the film’s plot. We hope the storyline has more to offer than people daring to kiss.

Ankita Lokhande recently dodged a massive fire in her bedroom. According to reports, the actress burned her arm and neck while dousing the flames. The fire took place when she was performing a pooja for Ganesh Chaturthi. It was apparently an aroma candle that led to her curtains catching fire, which spread across her room in no time.

It seems popular TV comedian Kapil Sharma has stirred a whole can of worms. He took to Twitter to vent his frustration over paying a bribe of Rs 5 lakh to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), in order to set up his office. What’s more, the evidently angry TV star even tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi on it.

Even as Sharma’s tweet went viral, BMC asked him to lodge a formal complaint and name the officer who demanded bribe from him. This was followed by a promise of action from none other than Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who took to Twitter to reassure Sharma.
