Actor Chunky Pandey is loving this phase of his career. He says his recent, light-hearted roles have given him a chance to connect with young audience members, a joy he missed in the initial years of his career.
He has played comic roles like Rana Jang Bahadur in 2006 film "Apna Sapna Money Money" and was recently seen playing the character of Aakhri Pasta in Sajid Khan's "Houseful" series.
Farah Khan says her family has supported her in her acting debut "Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi", but she isn't sure if her husband Shirish Kunder would go and see the film.
"Shirish, of course, encouraged me a lot, but I don't know whether he is ready to see the movie because he is not one of the husbands who would enjoy watching his wife holding hands with someone else. So I am not pushing him for it," Farah said here.
Her kids - triplets son Czar, and daughters Diva and Anya - gave mixed reactions to her new role as an actress.
