1. SRK Remembers his Mum on her 74th Birth Anniversary

Shah Rukh Khan shared a beautiful picture of his late mother Lateef Fatima Khan with his fans on Twitter celebrating her 74th birth anniversary. The actor has admitted in several interviews over the years that he deeply misses his parents and wishes they were around to enjoy his success. This tweet is a rare glimpse of his mother who passed away in 1991. SRK adorably admits in his brief message that had she been around, he would’ve been slapped for revealing her age.

2. Abhishek Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor Quarrel Their Way Through the All Is Well Trailer

The new Abhishek Bachchan starrer All Is Well could turn out to be a total family entertainer. Father Rishi Kapoor plays his loud self and seems to have a never ending tiff with son Abhishek Bachchan. Oh also, he runs a bakery that doesn’t really do well. Kapoor also has a bladder issue (presumably) that makes him stop the car to take a leak every 20 minutes. Asin is Bachchan’s lady love and Supriya Pathak plays his mum and Kapoor’s unhappy wife. Though the characters seem interesting, the trailer barely gives the plot away. Hopefully the film will have more jokes than the trailer and of course, a good story. This Umesh Shukla film is set to hit theatres on August 21st.
