Indian officials have launched an investigation into Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan over reports he knows he and his wife are having a baby boy, in a country where pre-natal sex tests are illegal.

The defining virtue of this 3D marvel is that the film has a nice stuffing of action, explosion, fast-paced storytelling and brains.
Produced with a big budget price tag, this stylistically made film has been skilfully directed with overblown, dazzling special effects.
However, the film’s script doesn't come across as fresh as some of the plot devices try to go the Hollywood superhero films route like 'Iron Man' and 'Superman.'
Director: Abhinay Deo
Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Sara-Jane Dias, Shahana Goswami, Boman Irani and Jimmy Shergill.
This isn’t a film that is devoid of minuses, and anyone who watches ‘Game’ will be able to corroborate completely.
‘Game’ is a racy suspense thriller that certainly doesn’t sustain interest. The direction of the film is quite silly and out-and-out bad, since anyone can predict precisely scene after scene and there is no suspense intact.
This Abhishek’s latest outing is attuned to absurdities as it’s a thriller that seems like a fallible mix of elements.
Cast: Konkona Sen Sharma, Raima Sen, Shahana Goswami, Ila Arun, Shreyas Talpade

The title itself suggests that the story is filled with all the piquant elements that make a bold and funny theme. This witty sex-comedy is not a typical rip snorting Bollywood film filled with comedy, action and romance, but is a treatise on the politics of sexuality.
'Mirch' does have a frivolous focus on sex, passion and women's sexuality, but it’s not close to vulgarity.
From the first frame to the last, the director has taken lots of pain to deliver a clean crafted film. It’s a four story film set in two time periods, ancient and contemporary.
"I've completely re-written the novel for the screenplay. It's been an exhausting process," Kapoor told IANS.
According to him, "Rock On!" was a completely original script, while "The 3 Mistakes Of My Life" is a derivative.
"It's not about degrees of originality. It's about what grabs my attention. And this is the film I want to make next," he said.
Kapoor has just finished scripting the film and will start shooting early next year. Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, who facilitated his acting debut with "Rock On!", are once again producing his film, but it will not star Farhan.
