He might be known as the Bollywood brat, but it looks like Salman Khan is now trying to turn a new leaf. He says he is trying to quit smoking.

<a href=Salman Khan" align="right" hspace="5" vspace="5" />Asked about the habit that is hard to kick, he said: 'I'm trying to (quit smoking)... Smoking is something people start to either enter a social circle or to show off.'

But he does have a word of advice for others trying to quit cigarettes too.

'Once you quit, there are also chances of picking it up again because when you find people around you smoking, you join them to be with them. But it slowly and slowly kills you and people stop only when they are advised by the doctor. So everyone should quit it before reaching that stage,' Salman said.


90 percent of my popularity is thanks to TV: Farah Khan

Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, who hosts celebrity chat show 'Tere Mere Beach Mein', says she owes 90 percent of her popularity to the small screen.

'Small screen is not small any longer. I think it's a larger medium than cinema because even though a village may not have a cinema hall, the people might still have a TV set. I think if I have become a popular figure, its almost 90 percent because of my presence on television,' said Farah.

The filmmaker, who has directed movies like 'Main Hoon Na' and 'Om Shanti Om', says though she enjoys working for TV, she doesn't like getting decked up for it.

'I really enjoy television. The only part I don't enjoy is doing my make-up and hair and sitting for hours and I also don't like looking fat on TV. Other than that, I like everything about it,' she said.

Farah was earlier seen as a judge on shows like 'Nach Baliye', 'Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa' and 'Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega'.


Bipasha all praise for 'Shob Charitro Kalponik' co-stars

Dusky beauty Bipasha Basu is riding high on the success of her debut Bengali venture 'Shob Charitro Kalponik' and can't stop praising her Bengali co-stars Prosenjit and Jishu Sengupta.

'Prosenjit is a senior and a very nice human being. He made me feel very comfortable for scenes that we did together. On the other hand, Jishu was somebody I could really get along and joke and laugh with, as we are from the same age group,' Bipasha told IANS.

Directed by maverick Bengali director Rituparno Ghosh, the film released Aug 28. 'Shob Charitro Kalponik' revolves round a non-resident Bengali girl who returns to her roots through her dead poet husband's poems.
