There is only one thing that director-turned-actor Farah Khan loves to hear -- compliments about her losing weight.
"Despite all our achievements, one thing we really want to hear is 'Wow, you have lost weight'. That is better than saying, 'wow your movies was very good or you acted well'. Everyone wants to hear that," the 47-year-old said here Thursday while unveiling the Society Interiors Special issue featuring her on the cover.
Reality check, she says, came in the form of "Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi".
Actor Manoj Bajpayee has revealed that he liked the script of Anurag Kashyap's "Chittagong" so much that he did it for free.
"The script is excellent. When I read the script, I decided that I would do it even for free and this is actually what I have done," Manoj, 43, said here Thursday at the music launch of the film.
"It is a hard-hitting film that tells the story of our country. It won't let the viewers lose their attention even for a second. The entire cast and the script are the USP of the film," he said.

More than 265 films in her oeuvre but Sridevi, the reigning queen of the 1980s and 1990s who is back after a 15-year gap with "English Vinglish", says she is yet to deliver her best.
The "Hawa Hawaii" girl, who did scores of films in the south before making her mark in Bollywood with critically acclaimed portrayals in diverse films such as "Sadma" and "Lamhe", has won four Filmfare awards - Hindi movies "Chaalbaaz" and "Lamhe", Tamil film "Meendum Kokila" and Telugu venture "Kshana Kshanam". But she's not completely satisfied.
The music of forthcoming "Kismet, Luv, Paisa, Dilli" is creating more buzz than the film itself and lead actor Vivek Oberoi has revealed how he worked together with composers Amjad and Nadeem on it.
The film has some foot-tapping numbers like "Appy Budday", "Dhishkiyaon" and "Jugaad."

Anurag Basu, who has no plans to make a sequel to "Barfi!", India's official entry for the Oscars this year, reveals that the film's team may take Aamir Khan's help in campaigning for the film in the US.
Basu, who is leaving the entire Oscar strategy to UTV, his producers, said: "They've more experience in the matter. This is my first film that's going to the Oscars, so I am clueless how one goes about it."
