Kareena Kapoor and Esha Deol are best friends. And they make no bones of the fact that they are extremely fond of each other.
Though Mama Babita has no problems, the other Mama, Hema Malini is not too happy with this budding friendship.

The liberated Hema, who does not approve of this liasion, can never catch Esha red-handed, thanks to the constantly protective Kareena.
Tabu and Shabana Azmi come together
Tabu may have recieved accoladed for her sterling performance in Chandini Bar. However, it is nothing compared to the tears her mother shed at a special trial of the film.
Tabu's mother, apparently, sobbed uncontrollably and hugged her daughter at the end of the trial.
These is the kind of acknowledgement Tabu looks forward to, since trophies no longer excite her.
Currently, the film Tabu is looking forward to most is by journalist Khalid Mohammed, co-starring aunt Shabana Azmi.
With the aunt and the niece vying for honours, this is one film to see who gets the meat.
Marriage has domesticated Akshay and how!
At every outdoor shoot, Akshay makes it a point to tag his wife along.
Close friends of the star reveal that he cannot imagine being away from his wife even for a day.
This was one of the reasons why he did not encourage Twinkle to continue acting.
"Imagine me going out and returning to find that Twinkle has just left on her outdoors", justifies the actor.
Being a professional, Akshay knows that he cannot afford to shuffle dates around -- neither his nor his wife's.

Manners maketh man
Not even a star and already throwing starry tantrums.
That's the buzz trickling in now from the unit of Raj Babbar's home production Kaash Aap Mere Hote on their return from Canada.
The unit insists newcomer Juhi Babbar needs a fulltime course in manners. Not only was the girl said to be rude and adamant, but also extremely bossy.
They swear that Juhi behaved as if the unit members were bonded slaves and she could control all their movements and actions, including whom they spoke to and how much.
What surprised everybody was the indulgent father who, besides blindly supporting his daughter, followed her instructions and at times reprimanded the unit.
Needless to say the entire episode has earned the man a lot of ill-will.
The father-daughter duo better realise that with such keen competition from stunners like Aishwarya and Kareena, little Ms Juhi better clean up her act. For starters, she could take lessons from her namesake Juhi Chawla in the industry who, as everyone knows, is one of the most well-behaved stars.
