When the host asked Kevin if his daughters approved of the new additions to the family, he said: They definitely do now... but at first it was all rough going. My youngest daughter Valentina, she is very connected to Nick. The day when she met Priyanka, she put her hand around his shoulder, every time her hand would go around Valentina, she would just push it off."

"And this just became an ongoing joke. I'm not sure Priyanka loved it at first but they're cool."

To this, Nick laughed and found the incident "funny".

‘Kabir Singh’ As Honest & Raw as Original ‘Arjun Reddy’: Shahid

Shahid Kapoor will be seen in the remake of the Telugu hit Arjun Reddy and the actor says the team of Kabir Singh has tried to keep the original film's intensity and honesty alive.

"The original was very raw, very honest. I don't think there was anything in the film that was for effect. I just felt it said things as it is and was a brazen journey of a character who goes through an emotional arc which is extreme," Shahid told PTI.

"The honesty of the film connected with the audience. Otherwise for a film like that, there would be a limited audience. But it was loved across the board. The idea is to do it all over again," he added.

The actor says while they have retained the essence of the film, they have also "rediscovered" the project. “We are trying to make it as honest and as raw as it was. Not trying to change anything for the sake of it. We are rediscovering it. Of course the way we do it, there’ll be some differences,” he said.
