The 43-year-old actress took to Instagram, where she shared a motley of pictures from her pregnancy shoot. In one picture, Bipasha is seen dressed in a white shirt while her husband Karan is seen lovingly kissing her baby bump.

Actor Anil Kapoor revealed that Danny Boyle saw his film ‘Taal’ and his performance in it that made the Hollywood filmmaker offer him the hugely successful film ‘Slumgod Millionaire’.

Anil also shared that he was destined to do this film as it was first offered to actor Govinda and then it came to him.

As the film, which also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Akshaye Khanna, completes 23 years of its release on Saturday, Anil took to social media to share some pictures from the shoot and pen a note.

“23 years of Taal! I will forever be grateful to have been a part of this iconic movie. In many ways, I was destined to do it, as my role was first offered to Govinda but ultimately came to me.”

“It was Taal that Danny Boyle saw and my performance in it that made him offer me Slumdog Millionaire, I thank my lucky stars for the love and support of the phenomenally talented showman @subhashghai1 saab and for 4 hugely successful milestone films with him!”

Kareena opens up on her iconic character Poo having her own movie

 Kareena Kapoor Khan’s over-the-top Poo from ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ is one of the most memorable and loved roles from the actress’s career. The Bollywood diva herself finds it unbelievable that even after 21 years of the film’s release the character is still relevant amongst all age-groups.

Kareena’s character Poo is not only known for her taste in fashion but also one liners such as “Kaun hai yeh jisne dobara mudke mujhe nahi dekha”, ‘P.H.A.T – Pretty, Hot And Tempting’ and “Tumhe koi haq nahi banta ki tum itni khoobsurat lago. Not fair” among many others.

Asked if she feels that Poo deserves a movie to herself, Kareena, in conversation with IANS, said: “Oh God! Like I think now this character is so relevant with this generation more than it was then.”

Kareena talks about what makes the character, which comes from Chandni Chowk in New Delhi and then moves to London with her sister essayed by Kajol and brother-in-law played by Shah Rukh Khan, have such a massive fan following.

“I think for the way she is, the way she talks, the kind of millennial Gen-Z kinda words that she uses connect somehow.”

The 41-year-old actress added: “So, I think it is because of that more than anything else. Let’s see a film someday, who knows.”

Kareena’s latest release is ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ starring Aamir Khan. The film is an adaptation of Tom Hanks’ iconic movie ‘Forest Gump’. It also stars Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya.
