Kareena Kapoor describes Kiaan as the best looking guy and says she likes to keep her nephew's picture as a wallpaper on her desktop. "It will have to be Kiaan Kapoor, " said Kareena when asked whose picture she would like to display as a wallpaper on her computer. "He is my sister's (Karisma) son. He is the most good looking man in my life right now. He has rosy cheeks, big eyes, and the most amazing lips, so it is obviously his face that I love to see every day, " added the 31 -year-old, who is dating Saif Ali Khan.

Pats and brickbats - Aamir Khan was prepared for it all when he set out to discuss burning issues in his debut TV show "Satyamev Jayate". Fearless and convinced about the aim of the show, the actor-filmmaker says he is totally unapologetic about raising the issue of malpractices in the medical profession, thereby upsetting an umbrella body of 21 medical institutions.  "I have absolutely no intentions of apologising because I have not done anything wrong," Aamir told in an exclusive interview over phone from Mumbai.  After raising concerns over female foeticide, dowry and child abuse, Aamir took it upon himself to shake up viewers and awaken them to the existence of irregularities in the country's healthcare system.  He brought issues like cut practices, unethical medical practices, and commission demands to the fore and presented live examples of people who could have been cured with simple medicines but were advised by doctors to undergo surgeries, robbing them of precious money. This 'exposure' has landed Aamir in the bad books of the Indian Medical Association (IMA). But he does not fret!  "We were aware that since these are issues that are core to all of us and affecting every Indian, obviously there are some people who are part of the problem, and they are not going to be happy with us because these are the ones who don't want a solution to be there. "In fact, I would have been surprised if we would not have earned brickbats. The people who are getting troubled are very likely the ones who are part of the problems," said Aamir

Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan will be making her acting debut in romantic comedy Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi opposite Boman Irani.  â€œFirst she (Farah) would say ‘I don’t want to do a kissing scene’. Then she would come to my van and say, ‘I think Bela wants us to do the kissing scene. So let’s rehearse’. And we used to rehearse the kissing scene for an hour, an hour-and-a-half, and get tired.  Everybody knows when you rehearse your dialogues, your mouth gets hurt. Our mouths also hurt a lot and then she used to go back to the sets and say, ‘No, no Bela, I don’t want to do the kissing scene’,” said Boman about a kissing scene in the movie.

Manoj Bajpai appears to be all set to reprise his Satya look. The actor will be sporting a beard and will also have a rather tanned appearance in his next, co-starring Arjun Rampal and Abhay Deol.  In fact, to look the part of a Naxalite in this Prakash Jha film, Bajpai even had to lose five kilos. Our sources reveal that Manoj decided to take up this look as, “most of the Naxalites are always on the move and in the sun”.  Incidentally, this is not the first time that Manoj has worked on his look. Even in Anurag Kashyap’s two-part film that recently premiered at Cannes, Manoj sported a near-bald look as part of his character as a goon.

Sanjay Gupta, who is all set to release his next gangster film, is not very fond of the usual run off the mill romantic comedies. In fact, he feels there are other “important things” that need to be narrated by filmmakers.  â€œThere is so much to see and show. We (the film industry) are bound by a formula. But in the end, the subject is what matters in filmmaking” Gupta quips. The film that is set in the 1980s Bombay, tells the tale of the city’s first encounter. And Gupta says his entire cast has done an excellent job of portraying their respective characters. He says, “John Abraham as Manya Surve and Sonu Sood as Dawood Abrahim have fitted the bill.” On whether it was difficult to recreate the city that was back then, Gupta admits that S Hussain Zaidi’s book on the gangs of Mumbai was a great source for reference. He explains, “We had lengthy discussions with the author about the plot and screenplay.We had to tell the story without being biased. We had to spend a lot of time in resea rch and interviews, ” and adds, “It was a very difficult task to create the Mumbai of the ’80s.
