Ajay Devgn And Family Share Their Picture Of Vacation From A Resort In Thailand

New Delhi: The Devgns chose for a warm vacation while many of Bollywood stars, including the likes of Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty with their respective families, left for colder climes to celebrate Christmas and welcome the New Year.

Ajay Devgn, wife Kajol and their kids Nysa and Yug are in Thailand’s Soneva Kiri, a luxury resort in Thailand’s Koh Kood island. The couple has been sharing pictures from their time and it definitely deserves a dekko.

Kajol appears to be her sunniest best, sharing a chunk of pictures of herself, her children and occasionally her husband from the resort. Sharing one, she wrote: “Raise a toast to 2019..... slide to figure who photobombed me AGAIN !!!! #funmemories #alwaysremember #flyingstart.” No points for guessing who it could be. Her husband Ajay is the one who photo-bombed her picture as she raised a toast to a man dressed as joker at the resort.

Sonali Bendre celebrates 44th birthday with family, friends in Mumbai

New Delhi: Bollywood actor Sonali Bendre, who recently returned home to Mumbai after a long stay in New York where she was getting treated for cancer, celebrated her 44th birthday in the company of her family and friends. Seen were Sussanne Khan (who came with ex-husband Hrithik Roshan), Gayatri Oberoi (who was accompanied by her husband) and actor Kunal Kapoor and his wife apart from her husband Goldie Behl. Sonali glowed in a white shirt and shimmery silver skirt.

Earlier in the day, Goldie took to Instagram to express his feelings for his wife. Sharing an intimate picture of the two of them, he had written: “Happy birthday Sonali. They say your partner needs to be your best friend, your sounding board, your mirror, your strength, your inspiration. You have been all that and more to me. 2018 was a tough year on you but I am so proud of the dignity and courage with which you handled it. Not only did you help me find my own strength, but you imparted that to every soul who followed you life closely...”


Meanwhile, for much of Bollywood, it has been a season of never-ending parties, what with leading ladies Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra deciding to get married towards the year-end and hosting big parties for their industry friends. Before that, Ganesh Chaturthi, Eid, Diwali and Christmas parties kept the Bollywood set busy. Now is the turn of New Year’s celebrations. Of course, many stars have chosen to step out of the country, but many others found time to party. After socialite Anu Dewan’s high profile party earlier this month, it was time for Sanjay Kapoor to host one. With Maheep Kapoor and Sanjay playing the perfect host, in attendance were Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Chunky Pandey, Karan Johar, Neelam Kothari and her husband actor Samir Soni among others.

Among the young set Suhana Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter, was out to welcome the New Year with her own gang. She was spotted heading out for a party in Mumbai, on Monday.

Katrina Kaif’s Portrayal As Babita Kumari Comes Up For All Praise In Zero

New Delhi: Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero released last week but failed to make a mark. The film garnered mixed reviews, with a sizable number of people panning it, while a small group appreciating its performances. Among the three principal characters, Katrina Kaif’s portrayal as Babita Kumari has come up for praise.

Playing a dark and disturbed character, Katrina got into the skin of the character with all its complexities. However, on social media, her portrayal as a star who is caught in the midst of a nasty break-up with another actor, played by Abhay Deol, seems to reflect her real-life break-up with Ranbir Kapoor. Now, speaking to Film Companion, Katrina has cleared the air on the similarities between the fictional character and its supposed reflection of her life.
