Farah Khan's three toddlers - Czar, Diva and Anya - can't seem to get enough of the song Sheila Ki Jawani that features in the director-choreographer's forthcoming directorial venture Tees Maar Khan.
"Diva and Anya keep singing and dancing to the song all day - Czar on the other hand attempts to play the track on his drums," a source says.
The triplets will turn three in February next year.
"It's a very cute sight. In fact. while Shirish (Kunder) was composing the music for the title track, Czar would accompany him to the studio and it's also no secret that he has the biggest crush on Katrina Kaif," the source adds.
Picturised on Katrina Kaif, the item number Sheila Ki Jawani is on its way to give competition to Munni Badnaam Hui of Dabangg.
After a deluge of protests, the Discovery television network's re-enactment of Michael Jackson's autopsy is now in limbo.
"Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson" was slated to air in the U.K. next month, but now the special's been "postponed indefinitely," Discovery Networks International says, citing "the request of Michael Jackson's estate" and "the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week." (A preliminary hearing for Dr. Conrad Murray, who's charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death, is set for Jan. 4.)
Writing to Discovery on Wednesday, the co-executors of the Jackson estate said the show was "in shockingly bad taste" and asked that the program be yanked in the interest of "common sense and decency," the New York Times says. Earlier this month, many of the King of Pop's fans also started spreading around a petition that insisted the special be canceled.
