1Madhuri may Take on Sridevi’s Role

Karan Johar’s “Shiddat” was his father’s dream project set in 1947 Lahore, Pakistan. Johar cast Sridevi and Sanjay Dutt as a Lahori couple who are parents to Aditya Roy Kapoor and Varun Dhawan in the film. With the sudden and tragic death of Sridevi, the film has lost an integral character, though it is not confirmed as of yet, rumor has it Johar wants Madhuri Dixit-Nene to take on Sridevi’s role in tribute to the late actress. Dixit-Nene has not been approached as of yet and Johar is being respectful of the Kapoor family’s loss.

2Aamir Khan Joins Instagram

Aamir Khan’s birthday was March 14th and Khan celebrated his 53rd birthday by finally joining Instagram! He had the day off from shooting so he flew to Mumbai to celebrate with his family. Khan even cut a cake in front of the media like he does every year with his wife at his side. The generally private couple even shared a cute kiss for the cams at the airport when Rao picked up her husband and after they had a public cake cutting.

He was convinced by his wife to join Instagram and his first post is an enormous collage of his mother to honor her.

“I had to post my mom’s post as the first on Instagram because of her I am here,” Khan told media.
