The new ‘papa’

Anil Kapoor has found himself a new papa. Before you start getting ideas, it’s none other than Siddharth Kannan. Recently, Anil did a studio interview with Sid for his show. So when Sid asked him the secret behind how he is looking younger by the day and that soon he might start looking younger than the host himself. Anil said he has had five plastic surgeries and has had his nose rectified a couple of times. He suddenly started calling Sid — “papa Sid”, to which Sid replied, “I always wanted a son like you — beta Anil.”

Anil’s daughter Rhea and music composer Amit Trivedi went berserk laughing at the ‘father-son’ duo having a blast with each other, and the icing on the cake was Anil asking Sid for his aashirwad, for which Sid was more than happy to oblige.
When asked about his experiences with Anil Kapoor, Sid said, “His humility touches your heart and his sense of humour can teach a thing or two to the best of comedians.” Here's hoping that this bonding between the naughty papa-beta jodi keeps growing.

Big flick on small screen

Catch the world television premiere of Raavan on Colors, August 1 at 8 pm. The movie stars Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Vikram, Govinda, Ravi Kishan, Nikhil Dwivedi and Priya Mani. Dev (Vikram), a policeman, falls in love with Ragini (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), a classical dancer.

They get married and he takes her along with him to his new post in Lal Maati, a small town in northern India. However, here the word of law is not the police but Beera (Abhishek Bachchan), a tribal who has, over the years gained immense power and popularity over the area.

Dev realises that the key to bring order in the town the big fish needs to be vanquished in this case — Beera. An injured but enraged Beera hits back, starting a battle that draws Dev, Beera and Ragini into the jungle, which is dense, confusing and scary.

In this journey, they must confront their own truth. A journey which will test their beliefs, convictions and emotions. These emotions are as scary and confusing as the forest. The forest becomes the battle field, where the battle is between good and evil that is between Dev and Beera.
