Jackie and Ravs kiss and make up

Raveena Tandon There was a time when Jackie Shroff hated Raveena.

For a simple reason -- Raveena constantly made pointed references, in her interviews, to Jackieís flirtatious behaviour and how he had, on various occasions, tried to flirt with her.

Jackie Shroff But then Raveena hit a new high with the National Award. Which prompted Jackie to sign her for his home production. What's more, Raveena has shown her generosity by expressing her desire to work for a pittiance.

How the tides have turned...

More star sons?

Yes. One more is being groomed for the film industry -- Kush, son of Shatrughan Sinha.

Kush, the plain, yet more pleasant looking of the twin is undergoing rigorous training before he taking a bow.

Shatrugan Sinha Now, Sinha Sr was never a muscleman. But word is that Kush works out at Salman and Sohail Khanís gym under their expert eyes.

He has also enrolled himself at various dancing schools to master various dance forms, which was a sore point for the Shotgun.

As for acting -- "well it is in my blood... I donít need training," says the lad.

Chip of the old block? You bet.

Rakesh Roshan

Rakesh Roshan eats humble pie

Rakesh Roshan hit the roof during Khoon Bahri Maang with Rekha's famous tantrums and astronomical bills. And had almost sworn never to work with her again.

Rekha But now when his sonís career comes into the picture, Rakesh -- the ever indulgent father is more than willing to eat humble pie and let Rekha play mother to Hrithik.

The enigmatic Rehka will play Hrithik's onscreen mother in Koi Mil Gaya.

Govinda can't keep his promises

Govinda seemed dead serious at inauguration of his distribution office.

One of the resolutions made then was that he was going to be very selective with his films.

Govinda Discipline meant, Govinda then said, giving dates in bulk, honouring commitments, and being punctual.

But all that seems to have washed away.

How could one honour commitments if one didn't reach shoots in time?

None of the films Govida starred in were complete, resulting in the closure of his distribution office.

Besides, not many were willing to risk their films with Govinda's company. Their reason -- a carefree business acumen.

But this hasn't perturbed the star as he continues to report late and cancel schedules.

Shilpa Shirodkar eyes the small screen

Shilpa Shirodkar is following in Madhuri Dixitís footsteps.

Shilpa not only shared a secretary with Madhuri but was always tried to emulate her.

Even now, as Madhuri tries to balance a career and marriage, Shilpa too does the same.

Bur Shilpa, knowing her limitations is not focusing her energy on films but is concentrating on television instead.

Babbar urged to take Pakistani bride to bring peace

Raj Babbar turned pink and purple with embarrassment recently, when on a goodwill mission to Pakistan the politician-cum-star received marriage proposals.

Raj Babbar 'Why not get married here?', said a few friendly organizations, who insisted that this alliance would only help in fostering ties between the two countries.

Raj Babbar was too embarrassed to answer, even if it meant that he'd have been the goodwill ambassador of the country.
