Dimple Kapadia and Rajesh KhannaAge is just a number…
They are grinning, smiling, laughing and making all kinds of jokes about Congress veteran Digvijay Singh, 67-year-old, who recently revealed that he was in a 'relationship' with a television anchor Amrita Rai, 43, and intended to 'formalise' it after her divorce came through. It certainly doesn't come as a shock, for this is not the first case of a May-December couple!

Face value
I keep my face make-up free when I'm not shooting. I never sleep with make-up on. I cleanse, tone and moisturize. Clarins, Sisley and Guerlain are great products. Coconut water is also a great hydrator in the summer or otherwise. Stay away coffee and tea unless it's green tea. It is filled with antioxidants and super good for you.
