Recently SAB Ke Anokhe Awards ceremony was held at NCPA Auditorium, Mumbai and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC) cast graced the awards ceremony. We bring you few exclusive photos of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC) stars - Dilip Joshi, Disha Vakani, Taarak Mehta and others.

The cute Gada couple, Jethalal Champaklal Gada (Dillip Joshi) and Dayaben Gada (Disha Vakani) of TMKOC pose at Sab ke anokhe awards ceremony.

Dilip Joshi is a hard core vegetarian and admits he has never ever tasted non veg in his life. He likes to carry homemade lunch to shoots and has been doing so for more than eighteen years. Most of the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC) stars are Gujaratis so they all gel well and share common eating habits.

Dilip Joshi, father of two, loves Indian, Chinese and Italian cuisines.

Do you like Jethalal's (Dilip Joshi's) toothbrush moustache?

Mr. Krishnan Iyer (Tanuj Mahashabde) of TMKOC at SAB Ke Anokhe Awards. Did you know that Mr. Iyer is originally a Maharashtrian? We really like the way he plays a South Indian character.

Dr. Hansraj Hathi (Nirmal Soni) and Natu kaka (Ghanshyam Nayak) share their thoughts about the awards ceremony and their co-stars. Natwarlal Prabhashankar Undhaiwala a.k.a. Natu Kaka, 68, considers himself as 68 years ka jawaan. :)! 

Would you believe that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has completed almost 900 episodes and till date none of the characters has been replaced? Commendable!!!

Champaklal Jayantilal Gada (Amit Bhatt) and Taraak Meta (Sailesh Lodha) take a dig on their co-stars.

Hot Malaika Arora Khan praises openess of Bollywood

Model-turned-actress Malaika Arora Khan says Bollywood is open to artists from all across the world and everybody is welcome.

"Whether Indian girls or foreigners, I don't know what is the difference. They all are artists, whether you are from here, whether you are from Taiwan, whether you are from wherever in the world, I think this industry is open to everybody. This place is for everyone, so everyone is welcome to be here to perform and be a part of the industry," she said.

The actress who has some of the best item songs to her credit like "Munni Badnam" and "Anarkali disco chali", says she likes other item songs too.

"Some really cool songs have been out in the recent past. I like (Kareena Kapoor's) 'Chhammak Chhallo' very much. I like (Katrina Kaif's) 'Chikni Chameli'. I think these are really cool," the 39-year-old said here Tuesday when she was asked about her favourite item songs.

Malaika was at the Four Season Hotel here to launch the Taiwan Excellence Campaign 2012.

Meanwhile, she revealed that the music of her home production "Dabangg 2" is still in the pipeline and she has not decided whether she would do an item number in it.

"We are in the process of shooting the film. But what we want to do for the songs, that is still in the pipeline. Nothing is decided."

Malaika was last seen in the item song "Anarkali" in "Housefull 2".

Popularly known as 'Kaka', Rajesh Khanna went through a health scare in April too. He was hospitalised following uneasiness back then.

Movies releasing this Friday | Ferrari Ki Sawaari

After breaking all opening box office records with his movie "3 Idiots", filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra's next offering "Ferrari Ki Sawaari" is ready to hit theatres Friday. Also releasing with it are projects like "Chakradhaar" and "Qasam Se Qasam Se".

First time director Rajesh Mapuskar has wielded the megaphone for "Ferrari Ki Sawaari", co-written by Mapuskar and Chopra. 

The film's star cast includes Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani and child artist Ritvik Sahore. With no lead actress, the film marks Sharman's first solo-hero project.

Ferrari ki Sawaari narrates the tale of a little boy who thinks of nothing but cricket -- and his father thinks about nothing but his son.

To fulfill his son's dream of playing at Lord's cricket ground, the honest and upright Rusy (Sharman) performs the first small act of dishonesty in his life. He borrows a gleaming red Ferrari for an hour. The only trouble is that he doesn't inform its legendary owner.

Their Ferrari ride leads through a chaotic world of street-thugs and mass-weddings. Meanwhile, another saga unfolds - a grumpy old man and his secret wounds, and an epic rivalry that goes back 50 years.

The major highlights of the film are its shooting at Lord's Cricket Ground in London, actress Vidya Balan's item number "Mala jao dya na ghari" and the red Ferrari, which is owned by cricket star Sachin Tendulkar in reality.

Made at a budget of about Rs.20 crore, the film has been shot on location, on busy roads and amidst live audience.

Other films releasing alongside "Ferrari Ki Sawaari" are "Chakradhaar" and "Qasam Se Qasam Se".

Produced by Bharat Anand and directed by Shakur Sir and Dharamprakash, the story of "Chakradhaar" revolves around the character of a simple righteous boy of Benaras, Shravan, and his transition to a local powerful goon, Pandit.

The movie launches debutant Abhishek Anand in the lead role as Shravan and Pandit. 

It also features Urvashi Sharma, Vidya Malvade, Akhilendra Mishra, Govind Namdev, Darshan Jariwala and Yashpal Sharma.

The other film "Qasam Se Qasam Se" launches newcomer Azim, and promises a lot of action sequences.

Extreme Martial Arts (XMA) has been extensively used in the scenes of the film, which also features Faith Wladyka, Rakhi Sawant and actor Satish Kaushik.

Rakhi also has an item song in the film.

With last week's release "Shanghai" getting a mixed response at the box office, and "Rowdy Rathore" continuing its successful run, it will be interesting to see if these movies will bring something fresh.

Dabangg Girl Sonakshi Sinha | Rowdy Rathore

Post the success of  "Dabangg"Sonakshi Sinha maintained a low profile and stayed away from media glare. She says it was not intentional as she was working non-stop during that period.

"It was not intentional. I don't think anything that I do is intentional...It is just a coincidence as some films got delayed due to whatever reasons," Sonakshi told reporters here, adding that her second release "Rowdy Rathore" is coming before time.

Sonakshi Sinha promotes Rowdy Rathore

"In fact, 'Rowdy Rathore' is releasing early...I have no complaints that I was not seen on screen for one-and-half years as I was busy shooting for all the films that I signed, doing advertisements and shows. So I have been working non-stop. Workwise it has been a good year-and-half for me," Sonakshi added.

"Rowdy Rathore", directed by Prabhu Deva, will see Sonakshi romancing Akshay Kumar. It hits the screens June 1.

The 24-year-old has five major films in her kitty right now.

Sonakshi said: "I feel I am blessed. I love what I do and I look forward to doing that every single day. If I have one-two day gap in between, I think what to do? I feel I am lucky - I am doing 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2', 'Joker', 'Dabangg 2', 'Son Of Sardaar' and 'Lootera'."

Acting happened by chance to her.

"I thought I will never do any movies. I did not know that I would end up doing movies. I feel it is all due to destiny, I don't think there is anything else. I was studying fashion and was almost on the verge of becoming a designer, but acting happened by chance to me. But when a film like 'Dabangg' is offered to you, you can't say no," Dabangg girl Sonakshi Sinha said.

The actress gives credit to her "Dabangg" co-star Salman Khan for encouraging her to become an actress.

"The credit absolutely goes to Salman. He always encouraged me. When I was studying fashion, at that time he used to tell me leave all this and become an actress. I was like very huge (overweight) that time and used to ask him how can you see an actress in me? He encouraged me to become fit and join the film industry. I will always be thankful to him," Dabangg girl Sonakshi Sinha concluded.
