Namashi Chakraborty

Early stills of his debut film “Bad Boy” drew comparisons with the handsome features of his father, yesteryears’ superstar Mithun Chakraborty.

Pashmina Roshan

The daughter of composer Rajesh Roshan is yet to make an official announcement about her Bollywood debut, but there have been rumors. What added fuel was her cousin, actor Hrithik Roshan, sharing social media posts about her and writing positive words like “Proud of you Pashmina” on Instagram. (IANS)

She added: "On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we therefore present to you, the designee, for the national hero of Barbados." "And to accept on behalf of a grateful nation - you can come my dear - ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty, may you continue to shine like a diamond and bring honor to your nation."
