Actor Ram Kapoor’s weight might be a point of discussion among his fans, but his wife, actor Gautami Kapoor has stopped discussing it with him.

    “I used to initially tell him a lot about losing weight, but not now. If someone wants to change something, it has to come from within them. So I don’t nag him ­anymore,” says Gautami, who is currently seen ­playing the role of Sneha Rishi Mathur in a daily soap.

    On the brighter side, Gautami says that people have started connecting with Ram because of his family man image. “There are friends of mine who call me up and tell me that their husbands can relate to Ram because of his paunch. I guess in a way, Ram’s physique complements the roles that he plays on-screen,” says Gautami, who has worked with Ram in shows such as Ghar Ek Mandir and Kehta Hai Dil.

Kargil martyr’s widow fears for life

Shakuntala Devi (45) is a distraught woman these days.

Having lost her husband, Nayak Chaman Singh, in the 1999 Kargil War, she is running from pillar to post to save herself and her children’s lives.

The petrol pump that the government allotted her a few years after husband was slain in the line of duty has been attacked and ransacked repeatedly.

Worse still, her requests to ensure safety to herself, two sons and property have fallen on deaf ears of the police and Noida administrative officials.

  In her complaint, on the basis of which a case has been registered, she has said if anything happens to her or her family, the police will be responsible.

A native of Ghaziabad, she stays with her two sons in Arawali Apartments under Noida’s Sector 24 police station.

The petrol pump, allotted in 2005, is located in front of Shopprix Mall in Sector 54.

With tears in her eyes, Shakuntala said, “The petrol pump manager, Vijayveer, duped me of lakhs of rupees. He committed many frauds, causing huge loses to me.” On the basis of a case lodged in 2007, the manager was sent to jail.

On Tuesday, Shakuntala was on way to a local court in Noida phase II for hearing, when she was waylaid by two motorcycle-borne persons.

Shakuntala has registered a case with the Sector 24 police station under sections 504 and 506 of the IPC, accusing the two of threatening to kill her.

When contacted, a senior police officer, under whose jurisdiction the matter comes, assured that the matter was being looked into.
