When budding actress Isabelle Kaif recently unveiled the first look of her upcoming film, fans quickly found resemblance with her famous sister, Bollywood star Katrina Kaif. For years, Bollywood has seen siblings entertaining audiences with their acting skills, and the list only keeps growing.

There are many youngsters who are either ready to make their acting debut or have lately made a name for themselves, just like their illustrious siblings.

Isabelle and Katrina Kaif

Isabelle, who has been visible in the Bollywood circuit for a while now, will star in Suswagatam Khushaamadeed opposite Pulkit Samrat, as a girl who hails from Agra. She was also cast in “Time To Dance” opposite Sooraj Pancholi, but there have been no new developments on that front. Meanwhile, Katrina continues to be one of the most popular actresses in Bollywood, nearly two decades after she made her debut in films, with the 2003 release, “Boom”. Over the years, she has starred in a series of mainstream hits including “Partner”, “Singh Is Kinng”, “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, “Ek Tha Tiger”, “Tiger Zinda Hai”, “Welcome”, “Race”, “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani”, and “Raajneeti”. Katrina has also made her mark as one of the most popular dancers in Bollywood, with numerous hits including “Chikni Chameli” (“Agneepath”), “Sheila ki jawaani” (“Tees Maar Khan”), and “Kamli” (“Dhoom 3”). She is currently awaiting the release of the Akshay Kumar-starrer, “Sooryavanshi”, and she also has a superhero film by director Ali Abbas Zafar besides the horror comedy “Phone Bhoot” with Ishaan Khatter and Sidhant Chaturvedi.

Namashi and Mahaakshay Chakraborty

Mahaakshay was launched as an actor in 2008 with “Jimmy”. Although he starred in films like “Haunted 3D” and “Ishqedarriyaan”, he is yet to give make a mark. Namashi, on the other hand, has become talk of the town even before his acting debut due to resemblance to his father, yesteryears’ superstar Mithun Chakraborty. Namashi’s debut film “Bad Boy” is on way to completion. The rom-com is directed by Rajkumar Santoshi.

Nupur and Kriti Sanon

Kriti has stayed busy since her Hindi film debut in 2014 with “Heropanti”. “Dilwale”, “Raabta”, “Bareilly Ki Barfi”, “Luka Chuppi” and “Housefull 4” are some of the films she was seen in.

Upcoming medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages

The new medical colleges being opened in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages.

The state government has issued an order naming four district hospitals that are being converted into medical colleges.

These district hospitals are in Bijnor, Fatehpur, Chandauli, and Siddharth Nagar.

The Bijnor medical college has been named after Mahatma Vidur, a philosopher during the Mahabharata era and uncle of the Pandavas and Kauravas.

The Chandauli medical college has been named after Baba Keenaram, said to be the founder of the Aghori sect.

The Siddharth Nagar district hospital will be called Madhav Prasad Tripathi Medical College after the BJP politician from the region. Tripathi, popularly known as Madhav Babu, was also the first Uttar Pradesh BJP chief. He was elected MP from Domariyaganj in 1977, besides being two times Jan Sangh MLA and also a member of the UP legislative council.

The Fatehpur hospital has been named Amar Shaheed Jodha Singh Ataiya Thakur Dariyawn Singh Medical College, after the freedom fighter of 1857.

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has picked India as the favourite to win the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Oman and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Inzamam feels that the Virat Kohli-led India have a greater chance of winning the trophy as the conditions in the Gulf nations are similar to the subcontinent, which makes India the most dangerous side in the event, according to Inzamam.

"In any tournament, it cannot be said for certain that a particular team will win' It's all about how much chance do they have of winning it. In my opinion, India have a greater chance than any other team of winning this tournament, especially in conditions like these. They have experienced T20 players as well," said Inzamam on his YouTube channel.

He said more than the Indian batters, the bowlers have a lot of experience of playing in the conditions. The Indian Premier League (IPL) was played recently in UAE and most of the Indian bowlers did well in that leg.

Inzy heaped praises on the Men in Blue for the confident manner in which they chased the target against Australia on a challenging track without needing Kohli's batting prowess.

"India played their warm-up fixture against Australia rather comfortably. On subcontinent pitches like these, India are the most dangerous T20 side in the world. Even today, if we see the 155 runs they chased down, they did not even need Virat Kohli to do so," he added.

Though he did not pick any favourite, Inzamam termed the India-Pakistan clash in the Super 12 on October 24 as the 'final before the final' and said the team winning it will go into the remaining matches high on morale,

"The match between India and Pakistan in the Super 12s is the final before the final. No match will be hyped as much as this one. Even in the 2017 Champions Trophy, India and Pakistan started and finished the tournament by facing each other, and both the matches felt like finals. The team winning that match will have their morale boosted and will also have 50 percent of pressure released from them," Inzamam added. (IANS/JB)

Skin problems like itchiness, dryness and flakiness can occur anytime if you're not moisturising your body enough.

Skin problems like itchiness, dryness and flakiness can occur anytime if you're not moisturising your body enough. It is commonly observed that while many people take their skincare routine seriously, a majority of them neglect to moisturise the body. It is important to keep in mind that timing matters a lot when it comes to applying moisturisers. Therefore, knowing the appropriate time to apply body lotion is essential.

Take a look at the ideal times to moisturise your body shared by Kimi Jain, Head of Retail, KIMRICA.

Moisturising the body in the morning sets your skin up to face countless irritants and environmental factors during the day. The skin is constantly exposed to harsh chemicals and pollutants when you're outside which is why using a protective and soothing moisturiser while going out is necessary. Kimirica's Five Elements Body Lotion comes with natural Aloe Vera extracts that act as a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that helps protect your skin and provide a deep nourishing effect.
