Oh ho This is what worries daddy Saif Ali Khan about son Taimur Ali Khan

via filmfares http://ift.tt/2kbdUCF
The internet breaking kid and everyone's favourite Taimur Ali Khan became a star ever since his birth. Son to B-town's very own royal couple #Saifeena aka Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, this child has made everyone gush about him. Taimur, who looks cute as ever is now a paparazzi and social media star.

Taimur has been under the media glare ever since momma Bebo announced her pregnancy and with this much attention, one would
wonder if it worries daddy Saif Ali Khan?

Talking about the same, in his conversation with a leading daily, Saif said, "Taimur will have to be aware that he is being watched all the time. He will have a lot of privileges as well. I think life has a wonderful way to balance it out, so if he has all the wonderful privileges he will also have certain responsibilities. There will be certain expectations out of him. Maybe all that will force him to become an actor. I hope that with the right guidance, maybe he wi…

Why did Abhishek Bachchan walk out of JP Dutta’s Paltan just 48 hours before the shoot?

via Bollywood Hungama http://ift.tt/2fYsNE4 It’s a question that has B-Town agog with curiosity. There has been a lot of speculation about Abhishek Bachchan’s exit from JP Dutta’s Paltan, 48 hours before the film was to roll. Everybody is mystified at AB Jr’s sudden exit especially as he’s always been very close to the Duttas. At present, JP, his daughters Nidhi and Siddhi are in Ladakh, shooting for the first schedule of the film and even found a replacement for Abhishek in Harshvardhan Rane. While both the Bachchans and the Duttas have maintained a dignified silent on both their fronts, nor indulged in idle banter, or given any clarifications, B-Town’s trade sources have their own reasons.A trade source says, “Abhishek and JP Dutta have been discussing Paltan for almost a year. The actor calls himself the first-born in the Dutta family (before his elder daughter Nidhi who is also the Executive Producer of Paltan) since the time he debuted in Dutta’s Refugee. In fact, he was the firs…
