Thank you, Bazmee, says Chandigarh crowd
Akshay Kumar & Sonam Kapoor Multi-starrer Thank You has gone down well with the Chandigarh folks. Some happy faces, others still laughing, the scene after the first show was an exact opposite of what critics anticipated. Directed by Aneez Bazmee, the flick is based on three philanderer husbands — Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan and Suneil Shetty. Sonam Kapoor, Rimi Sen and Celina Jaitley play their spouses, respectively.

Do what you say
My son is 19-years-old and very intelligent, but he is extremely lazy; prefers to sleep till 12 pm. He is very unhygienic and despite my constant pestering he does not get a haircut, does not shave or cut his nails. He is not even able to help in the family responsibilities because of his laziness. Please help.

Why we love BipsWhy we love Bips
Bipasha Basu will be seen in Dum Maaro Dum and Singularity this year. Here are some reasons why we love the Bong bombshell.
Dusky beauty
Bipasha has striking features and her almond eyes are arresting. She is tall and shapely. She knows she is sexy and uses her appeal to her advantage. She loves being dusky and has never endorsed fairness creams. She is a beauty with brains.
Bipasha has worked her way up in Bollywood and sparkled in a bunch of movies such as Jism, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Race, Corporate, Lamhaa, Omkara and Dhoom. 
Her versatility
Bipasha practices what she preaches. She is very fit and endorses a fit lifestyle. She is curvaceous and muscular because she does not believe in size-zero. She has launched a fitness DVD as well. She is seen in clothes that accentuate her figure and personality. She is unapologetic about the way she dresses.

Neha Dhupia:
Neha Dhupia: Her rusty red maxi is comfortable and relaxed and perfect for the summer. We love the flowing fit. We like the chunky jewellery and minimal make-up too. She could go shopping or hit the beach right away!

Let's get summery!

Preity Zinta
We love this shade of pink and we like the fit and flow of the dress. The messy hair is low maintenance and the glares keep the sun out. PLZ keeps it simple and stylish!
Katrina Kaif
The floral-print Mango dress looks utterly comfortable. She has clinched it on the waist with a complementary slim brown belt. The colours are soothing and suits her complextion.
Kangna Ranaut
She is all set to enjoy the summer. She has cut her hair short and the ebullient floral dress is uber attractive. Her brooding looks add more spunk to her outfit. What's not to like! It's summer time so play with bold colours.
