October 26th, 2010 - 7:40 pm ICT by IANS  

Akshay Kumar New Delhi, Oct 26 (IANS) True to his earthy image, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar says he likes women in traditional attire.

“Women look fabulous in traditional attires. I have always liked women dressed in Indian clothes and with a ghunghat,” Akshay said.

The actor, who is hosting and co-judging Star Plus’ “MasterChef India”, is particularly impressed with Zebi, a contestant who hails from Lucknow. A very quiet young woman, Zebi has not compromised on her traditions and culture even while shooting and is always clad in simple salwar-kameez and takes a dupatta on her head.

“Zebi has the nazakat (grace) that every Indian woman should have in her,” the actor said.

“MasterChef India” is a cookery competition show.

Shweta Tiwari, Dolly Bindra in catfight!

What started off as a minor argument over kitchen work soon became a major catfight between actors Shweta Tiwari and Dolly Bindra in reality show “Bigg Boss 4″.

Just a day after loud-mouthed Dolly entered the show, she tried to take charge of cooking in the kitchen - a department that Shweta had been handling so far.

Shweta, who has had a sour past with Dolly, expressed her desire to quit from the kitchen team Monday evening. That was followed by a bitter war of words between the two ladies, says a source.

They started hurling abuses and allegations against each other and dug into their past rivalry because Shweta’s former husband Raja Chaudhary had once slapped Dolly at a party.

The episode featuring the catfight will be aired Tuesday.
