The mavericks of Bollywood filmmaking, the flamboyant Karan Johar and the comedy-action king Rohit Sherry were present at a suburban hotel to launch their upcoming reality show titled ‘India’s Next Superstar’ on a renowned channel. The show talks about judging people on pure basis of their merit and talent, not on references. 

 

Now that the global girl Priyanka Chopra has appeared on this show and spoke her heart out about having no godfathers in the industry and still making it big, at the press conference, Karan Johar was questioned if Kangana Ranaut would be extended an invitation to be on the show. 

 

The man who has had an infamous history over the nepotism facade, said, “I’m sure if star plus invites Kangana Ranaut, we will be very happy to have her on the show. Our hearts are big and our house doors are opened for her. All those who are invited from our side, we will happily, lovingly welcome them.”

 

The filmmaker also clarified that he isn’t considering this show to be a platform to answer nepotism. “Everyone here with talent will be appreciated and no reference,” clarified Karan when asked him about it.

Rohit Shetty and Karan also revealed that the winner of the show will be launched by either of them, or both together or some big production houses.

The pictures of Taimur Ali Khan posted by Karan Johar and Karisma Kapoor on his first birthday will melt your hearts. Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and others are at Pataudi Palace for the special day

December 20- a special day for the Kapoors and Pataudis, as they celebrate Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s little munchkin, Taimur Ali Khan’s first birthday. The star-kid is a celebrity in his own way and enjoys a massive fan following on social media and otherwise. That Chhote Nawab’s birthday would be a private and intimate affair, was informed by his maternal aunt Karisma Kapoor.

A few days ago, Saif, Kareena, Karisma, Babita and everyone left for Pataudi Palace- the ancestral Palace of Saif Ali Khan, to bring in the adorable kid’s first birthday. Aunt Karisma has been giving us the insights from the grand celebration through her Instagram. And we can’t stop gushing over the lovable picture posted by Karisma. She wrote, “Happy 1st birthday our little bundle of joy! #weloveyou#ourbabyboy #babynawab #familyovereverything #throwback#specialmoments.”

Kareena’s close friend and filmmaker Karan Johar also wished the baby boy in his unique style. He wrote, “Happy birthday Taimur!!! I hope you enjoy your times with my babies as much as i have with your mom and dad!!! (sic)”

Recently, Taimur Ali Khan was seen bonding with Karan’s twins- Yash Johar and Roohi Johar at baby Adira Chopra’s (Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra’s daughter) birthday bash.

Taimur’s maternal grand uncle-actor, Rishi Kapoor also posted a wish for the Chhote Nawab. He wrote, “Happy Birthday dear Taimur,God Bless! This is your grand uncle!”

Taimur’s momma, Kareena’s best friend, Amrita Arora Ladak posted an adorable picture of the little lad and wished him.

Also, Kareena Kapoor‘s dietician, Rujuta Diwekar has dedicated an ecological gift to Taimur. She has built a small forest in the name of Taimur Ali Khan in Sonave.

 

A little forest for Taimur A little boy can never have enough of birds, bees and butterflies and so we have put together a small forest as a birthday gift for the little big boy, Taimur, in Sonave. It’s a special forest, one that thrives on intercropping and i hope that as he grows he too will thrive in and celebrate a diverse society. A society where people live together through and due to their distinctions. The forest has about 100 trees on a 1000 sq ft plot. The trees are as young as Taimur, even younger actually, and each one of them is a local, native, climate resilient specie. It will be a forest of the super foods of the future. There are 3 jamuns, 1 jackfruit, 1 amla, 40 Bananas, 14 Moringas, 1 Kokum, 1 Papaya, 5 Seetaphal, 2 Ramphals, 2 Nimbu trees. Besides these it grows 3 different types of native pulses and many Mirchi, Ginger, Turmeric and kari patta plants. Not to mention the green leafy veggies and the genda phools that grow in between. The forest is inspired by Padma Shri Subhash Palekar’s zero budget natural farming where one tree grows symbiotically off another and thus is thrifty on one’s pocket. The forest will become a home for pollinating agents like the butterflies, bees, birds and earthworms. It will help nurture the soil, fix back the nitrogen and minerals in the soil that it grows on, preserve the water table and look elegant and beautiful while doing it all. Here’s to living sustainably! Happy Birthday. #taimuralikhan
