Point to be noted
Shoes that squeeze the toes together might only make space for enough cramps but when has fashion taken written instructions from podiatrists?

Frequent cleaning of the vanity kit is as important as it is overlooked.

No body double for Hrithik
It was reported that Hrithik Roshan's action sequence in his next film Bang Bang was arranged for a body double following his brain surgery.
