Under their D2R Films banner, The Family Man directors will develop and produce their upcoming projects for the streaming giant.

“Meanwhile, actor-singer Shehnaaz Gill recently took to her Instagram handle and treated fans to pictures from her ‘spa time. But the spa is a construction site, and the only therapy she is getting is a mud bath. In the photos, Gill is seen having fun and enjoying her own company as she rolls in the mud. The actor captioned the pictures, “Spa time #off roading.”
In the photos, Gill is seen rolling, posing, and enjoying in the mud with a big smile on her face. Fans were quick enough to flood the comments section. One of them wrote, “Soooo down to earth.” Calling her adorable and a munchkin, another fan wrote, “Only this munchkin can do this.”
“In other news, Pankaj Tripathi is set to be back in the courtroom on Criminal Justice, playing the effervescent Madhav Mishra. On Wednesday, Disney+ Hotstar dropped the teaser of the third season of its much-loved show. Titled Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach, the show will see Madhav Mishra taking on assistant public prosecutor Lekha, played by Shweta Basu Prasad.
Criminal Justice has earlier seen Vikrant Massey and Kirti Kulhari playing the lead role. The new season of the show will start streaming soon on Disney+ Hotstar. Rohan Sippy, who will direct Criminal Justice 3 said that Madhav Mishra will question the judiciary and its limits by revealing a never-before-seen side to our legal systems.
“Moving on, Sunil Grover, who recently turned 45, opted for a simple celebration. The actor shared in a chat with indianexpress.com “It’s almost borderline boring,”, adding that he is, however, looking forward to the love and wishes.
Calling last year a ‘roller coaster ride, Grover said that while he did a few good projects, he also had to suffer a health crisis. The actor added, “Now, everything is fine, and I am back to work. There are a few more interesting projects lined up, and I am excited about the coming months,” in January, Sunil Grover suffered a heart attack. Doctors had to operate on his three blocked arteries and he was discharged from the hospital after a few days.
Recently a video of Shark Tank India’s Ashneer Grover enjoying a kirtan at ISKCON temple in Vrindavan went viral. As fans witnessed him clapping and dancing to the religious song in disbelief, the entrepreneur revealed the man in the video is his doppelganger. Sharing a video of the said footage, Ashneer tweeted, “Hey doppelgänger! In the video, a man, with an uncanny resemblance to the BharatPe co-founder is seen in a yellow check shirt and black pants. He has a similar salt-pepper hairdo and wearing the same type of glasses. As the song “Hare Krishna” plays, the man is seen clapping his hand in excitement and swaying to the music.
“In some exciting news, Laal Singh Chaddha co-stars Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan appeared as the guests on Koffee with Karan 7 episode 5. The two exchanged fun banter with host Karan Johar as they went through the usual gamut of some probing questions, a rapid-fire round, and the new quiz session.
Through the course of the conversation, Aamir Khan revealed that he is concerned about Laal Singh Chaddha’s performance at the box office. Karan Johar asked him, “Are you stressed?” Aamir didn’t mince words, and said, “Of course, I am stressed. What kind of questions are you asking?”
Kareena was surprised to hear this and said, “Are you? But you’re very confident?””
“Speaking of Laal Singh Chaddha, here is an overview of the latest episode from Koffee with Karan season 7. Though the episode began with the promotions of Laal Singh Chaddha, which everyone knew was bound to happen with Aamir and Kareena coming together, it got better when the two stars, especially Aamir, got into the Koffee zone. After the initial 12-13 minutes, the conversation moved on from Laal Singh Chaddha, how Kareena was cast for it, and why she hasn’t watched the film yet, and introduced us to a never-seen-before Aamir. This Aamir was candid, funny, sassy, talkative, and a total troll who didn’t miss a single chance to pick on KJo.
“We end this bulletin with news on veteran actor Neena Gupta. She says she had made a pilot for the potential follow-up to her acclaimed television show ‘Saans’, which was “rejected” by the channel.
The incident is addressed in the second season of Masaba Masaba, the semi-fictional series based on the lives of Gupta and her designer-actor daughter Masaba Gupta. Directed by Sonam Nair, season two started streaming on Netflix last week. Gupta said she had many meetings with the channel about three-four years ago, but the second instalment didn’t move forward as they didn’t like the pilot. In 2019, the actor announced plans to make season two of Saans, a 1998 relationship drama which she starred in, wrote, and directed.
